Eurocom launches “superlaptop” Scorpius with two GeForce GTX 680M on board

Eurocom has long been designing laptops with powerful «stuffing» with the level of desktop PCs. Being a full replacement for the classic desktops, they still have a significant drawback — a lot of weight due to the use of high-end components and a massive cooling system.

The new creation of Canadian engineers is called the Scorpius. This laptop combines a 17.3-inch screen with a glossy or matte finish (available in both options) and a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, one of the top line of mobile processors Ivy Bridge (up to the Core i7-3920XM), the motherboard chipset HM77, four memory modules DDR3-1333/1600/1866 totaling up to 32 GB, one or two GeForce GTX 680M graphics card with 4 GB of GDDR5 on board (optional GeForce GTX 675M, Radeon HD 7970M, Quadro K3000M/K4000M/K5000M) and a maximum of 4 Drive: a pair of hard drives with SATA 6 Gb / s, optical drive and card mSATA SSD.

Among the other components of the Eurocom Scorpius distinguish the presence of 2.1-channel …

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review

The second generation of AMD A-Series hybrid processors, announced earlier in October, are already integrated in a number of graphics solutions. The newly appeared products are compatible with Socket FM2 only and cannot be applied for Socket FM1 infrastructure. This implies that a number of motherboards lose their upgrade facilities and can't be updated with a new advanced solution. Still, the market is currently ready to present a few boards destined to operate with the updated AMD A-Series. Gigabyte is one of the pioneers in this respect, introducing its motherboard GA-F2A85X-UP4, developed specifically for Socket FM2.


Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 is designed in ATX form-factor with 305x244 mm PCB dimensions. AMD A85X chipset is a heart of the motherboard; it secures the compatibility with A-Series (second gen.) APU and Athlon CPUs in the implementation of Socket FM2. The overall TDP level claimed for the model is not more than 100W. The PCB allots four DIMM slots …
