EUROCOM Sky X4E2
15.6-inch 4K UltraHD 60Hz 3840-by-2160, FHD 60Hz 1920-by-1080 or FHD 120Hz 1920x1080 pixels

EUROCOM Sky X4E2 packs more power than most desktops into a 15.6-inch laptop form factor. This understated 7.5lbs NVIDIA VR Ready beast will go toe-to-toe with any laptop foolish enough to look it in the eye!

Equipped with a fully unlocked LGA1151 socket based Intel Kaby Lake i7 7700K, 7700, 7600K or Skylake 6700K or 6600K, you won’t have any trouble running demanding games, simulations and intense workloads with this pocket rocket! Armed with your choice of modular and upgradeable MXM 3.0 NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060 or 1070 desktop graphics cards, you will be able to perform heavy-duty rendering and run the latest games on high settings, no problem!

Despite this little guy’s form factor, we haven’t compromised on your choice of 15.6-inch, IPS display options. You can choose from a FHD (60Hz or 120Hz) G-SYNC panel or an UltraHD 4K display. You also have a wide selection of memory options, starting from 8 GB all the way up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM! In the storage department, we offer you room for up to 4 physical storage drives (two M.2 slots and two 2.5 inch bays), for a maximum storage capacity of up to 12 TB!

Further, your data will be protected with a Kensington lock, biometric security, and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) data encryption. TPM encrypts all your data so only you have access to it, even if your machine is misplaced or stolen. The X4E2 also comes with a fully backlit (7colours) keyboard & dedicated lighting software.

You’ll find that we have done our very best to offer you the same benefits of our full-sized laptops in this smaller form factor, and that also extends to our thermal solutions. The Sky X4E2 comes with our signature, industrial grade copper heatsinks, powerful centripetal fans, and a multi-layered motherboard technology to ensure maximum thermal efficiency. Furthermore, we still offer you the same modular, socketed CPU motherboard design so that you can upgrade your computer in the future to stay current and keep this competitor in the ring!

Eurocom Sky X4E2 laptop review ( i7 7700k, GTX 1070)

Eurocom puts a significant emphasis on the fact that the Sky X4E2 can be upgraded to a huge extent. The chassis used in the Eurocom Sky X4E2 has a Z170 chipset and was originally used with a desktop Skylake CPU however Eurocom has upgraded to a Kaby Lake Core-i7 7700K CPU that supplies extra clock speed. The stock clocks are 4.2GHz base and 4.5GHz boost however there is scope for overclocking if you feel the urge.

Pros:
-Good selection of ports and connectors
-Eurocom offers future upgrade paths as your laptop gets older
-Massive number of options when you order your laptop
-Solid gaming performance from the GTX 1070 and Core i7 combo

Closing Thoughts
The Eurocom Sky X4E2 is an impressive gaming laptop that offers a great many upgrade paths both at the time of order and also in the future. Right now in 2017 we have little idea about the plans of Intel and Nvidia and have no clue whether Eurocom will be able to offer a next generation CPU or GPU for this laptop. All we do know for sure is that they will do their best.

Hands on: Eurocom Sky X4E2 review

The Sky X4E2 is the only player in town should you be looking for a mobile workstation that can keep up with a mid-range mono-socket desktop workstation...

For
-Highly customisable
-Great expansion capabilities

When it comes to sheer performance and handling, this particular version of the Sky X4E2 didn’t disappoint. We love the display which delivered sharp and crisp colours, and ditto for the keyboard and the touchpad (which has a fingerprint reader and two physical buttons). Both provided great feedback and all this will likely delight most touch typists.

Eurocom’s laptop returned some exceptionally good numbers on our synthetic benchmark tests. Its CPU reached 2,211 and 9,741 points on CPU-Z single and multi-thread tests respectively. Its SSD hit a jaw-dropping 2.21GBps and 1.59GBps on CrystalDiskMark for read/write speeds.

The X4E2 produced the same level of performance with Passmark, hitting 6,409 in terms of its Passmark rating and 12,268 on CPU Mark. Cinebench numbers were equally impressive with 141.18 fps on OpenGL and a staggering 922cb for the CPU test.

It is worth pointing out that the device supports Intel’s XTU (Extreme Tuning Utility) which allows users to overclock their (unlocked) CPU without much effort, and TPM (Trusted Platform Module) which encrypts the data on the laptop.
