Eurocom Sky X9E review

Eurocom specialist manufacturer high – performance notebooks , today announced its first notebook labeled " VR-Ready ", the Sky X9E . This label proclaims that the team is prepared in terms of hardware and performance to service the systems so fashionable virtual reality , so logically equips a high – end hardware and is not suitable for all budgets. Read Eurocom Armadillo review here.

To proclaim openly that the equipment is VR-Ready, Eurocom has made use of desktop computer components such as an Intel Core i7-6700K processor, a graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 with 8 GB GDDR5 dedicated memory and in this case the option to install up to 64 GB of RAM DDR4 memory and a 17.3-inch screen with resolution Ultra HD. Just seeing this, the "portable" is quite large and indeed it has a weight of 4.8 kg, so obviously more portable is a mobile station, as we say us.

Thanks to that from a few months ago manufacturers have managed to integrate properly processors and graphics desktop laptops (to the detriment yes size and weight, largely because of the cooling system necessary for this hardware) to day today it is common to see laptops with performance that has nothing to envy to desktops, to the point that they can declare without equivocation that teams like this Sky X9E Eurocom can with virtual reality systems without too much trouble.
