Eurocom Scorpius packs dual Quadro graphics chips and 8 gigs of video memory.
If your work computer seems a bit on the slow side, Ottawa-based laptop maker Eurocom recently launched a mobile workstation that sports better specs than many high-end desktop computers. Called the Scorpius, the notebook supports dual graphics chips including two of NVIDIA’s latest Quadro K5000M GPUs, which pack 1344 CUDA cores and 4GB GDDR5 graphics memory per chip.
In addition, the desktop replacement rig supports the Intel Core i7-3920XM processor Extreme Edition (3.8 GHz); up to 32 GB of DDR3 1600 memory; and has room for three storage drives (SSD, HDD, Hybrid HDD) to accommodate RAID 0/1/5/10 setups.
Unlike many other mobile workstations, Eurocom’s systems, including the Scorpius, are fully upgradeable and can be customized based on graphics, processor, memory, storage, display and wireless technology
