    Eurocom X3 Notebook Review Update

    Highlights:
    Our last outing with the Eurocom X3 was exactly one year ago where the model carried top-of-the-line hardware from Haswell CPUs to the then most powerful GTX 780M single GPU solution. Now a full year later, Eurocom has updated a number of configuration options, most notably the option to now sport the GTX 880M.

    Performance
    Our X3 in review utilizes an Intel Core i7-4930MX CPU. The Haswell core is rated for a base clock rate of 3 GHz, but it will downclock to 800 MHz if on the Power Saver profile. Furthermore, running on batteries will limit the CPU to 1.8 GHz no matter the system profile. Eurocom offers a plethora of Haswell i5 and i7 choices including the very high-end i7-4940MX for an additional $1050 from the base i7-4700MQoption. An integrated Intel 4600 is included regardless of CPU choice with Optimus or Dynamic Graphics depending on GPU. More benchmarks and information on the i7-4930MX can be found on our dedicated CPU page here.

    On the graphics side, high-end Kepler MXM 3.0 cards are available from both the 7xxM and 8xxM generations as well as the Radeon R9-M290X and HD 8790M. Our unit comes equipped with the GTX 880M, arguably the strongest of the bunch. The GPU is rated for a base clock rate of 954 MHz, but will downclock to 135/162 MHz (core/memory) when idle and max out at 432.6/405 MHz if running on batteries. More benchmarks and information on the GTX 880M can be found on our dedicated GPU page here.

    RAM is provided by two 8 GB PC3-14200 Corsair Vengeance SODIMM modules for a total of 16 GB. Two additional SODIMM slots are available for expanding up to 32 GB, but these extra slots are located underneath the keyboard and require additional disassembly. Otherwise, access to the primary SSD, secondary HDD, removable optical drive, half-mini PCIe WLAN card, system fans, CPU, and GPU requires only a Philips screwdriver to remove the bottom panel.
    Processor

    CPU performance is near the top of our database, especially in CineBench R15 as the benchmark is a newer addition to our standard tests. Scores are overall similar to the Eurocom X7 and Racer 3W, both of which have the same i7-4930MX CPU.

    System Performance
    PCMark 7 places the Eurocom X3 near the top of our database with a final score of 6498 points. This outperforms the older X3 by over 400 points and even the recently reviewed Alienware 17 by almost 1000 points. The benchmark notoriously favors SSD-based systems, however, so the large delta between the Eurocom and Alienware can be explained by the primary 5400 RPM HDD found in the latter system. Compared to the Eurocom Racer 3W workstation, the X3 is almost identical in overall performance

    Storage Devices
    Most gaming notebooks offer a wide range of storage options and the Eurocom X3 is no differerent. In fact, with primary (2x mSATA), secondary (1x SATA III), and tertiary (1x ODD) storage options available, the X3 has more options than most 15.6-inch gaming rigs.

    Verdict
    The Eurocom X3 is still an excellent notebook for gaming or otherwise very demanding applications.
    Regardless, we're satisfied with what the longevity that the X3 currently offers to both gamers and professional audiences, at least for now.

    EUROCOM X3

    Solid performance from Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and latest Nvidia GPU. Lots of storage space. Speedy booting and performance with SSD boot drive. Keyboard features multicolor backlight. Built in subwoofer. Dual-Layer DVD+/-RW optical drive.

    This bad boy is equipped with a Core i7-4930MX Extreme Edition chip clocked at 3GHz with a Turbo Boost of 3.9GHz, 16GB of RAM, and Nvidia's new, leading laptop GPU, the GeForce GTX 780M. All in all, it's got enough juice to make Tim the Toolman howl.

    ...the X3 managed to slaughter every gaming laptop in this roundup. As a matter of fact, Eurocom's laptop won in every single performance benchmark by significant margins, be it in the CPU-intensive applications or, more punishingly, games.

    HD 8970M vs. GTX 780M v notebooku Goldmax X3

    Verdikt

    S notebookem Goldmax X3 jsem byl celkově spokojen. S úhlopříčkou 15,6" jde o stále relativně snadno přenosný notebook, který je možné osadit tím nejvýkonnějším mobilním hardwarem současnosti. Výkon pak odpovídá plnohodnotným stolním počítačům vyšší střední třídy. Před pořízením výkonného notebooku doporučuji jako vždy dobře promyslet, zda vysoký výkon na cestách potřebujete, či by nebyla lepší volbou koupě samostatné stolní sestavy a k ní úsporného notebooku. Pokud se rozhodnete pro výkonný notebook, mohu modelem Goldmax X3 rozhodně doporučit.

    Eurocom X3 Review

    Don't let its bulky frame fool you; the Eurocom X3 is a gaming powerhouse.

    As expected, the Eurocom X3 offers exceptional performance. Equipped with a top of the line 3.0 GHz fourth generation Intel Core i7 processor and cutting edge NVidia GeForce GTX 780M, the Eurocom is able to tackle most processes with the greatest of ease.

    Still, it's hard not to gush over the lighting quick responsiveness that this machine offers.

    While the Eurocom X3 manages to do everything well, where it really shines is graphically intensive functions. The X3 is perfect for tackling HD video editing and 1080p games at optimal performance.

    Review Eurocom X3 Notebook

    Equipped with some of the fastest mobile Haswell and Kepler chipsets currently available, the Eurocom X3 shows no mercy when it comes to application and gaming performance.

    The launch of the Eurocom X3 comes just in time after the arrival of both Intel’s Haswell and Nvidia’s Kepler refresh. As a result, the notebook houses some of the most high-end hardware options for a 15.6-inch DTR including a Core i7-4700MQ, i7-4800MQ, i7-4900MQ and i7-4930MX CPU options with an Nvidia GTX 765M, GTX 770M or GTX 780M.

    Gaming performance is equally remarkable; all games tested can be played smoothly on High or Ultra settings at 1080p resolution. Even Guild Wars 2 and its bandwidth-heavy supersampling AA was not enough to substantially cut down frame rates.

    Raw performance is where it’s at and the X3 does its best to satiate eager performance-hunters in need of a 15.6-inch barebones model with a high-end Haswell-compatible chipset and an MXM 3.0 bay for an equally high-end GPU. Additional improvements, such as the ability to connect up to five internal storage drives and Eurocom’s 3-year warranty options may persuade users who might be considering more pre-baked solutions from DTR competitors and resellers
