Eurocom Corp., a leading maker of high-end personal computers from Canada, on Tuesday said that its D900F Panther laptop would obtain six-core Intel Core i7-980X central processing unit (CPU) code-named Gulftown. The mobile system will be among the first consumer-type PC to utilize the new chips with six x86 processing engines.
From now on, the top-of-the-range Eurocom D900F Panther notebook will be based on six-core Intel Core i7-980X (3.33GHz, 12MB cache, Hyper-Threading) central processing unit along with X58 core-logic. The system may feature up to 24GB of memory, up to 2.4TB of hard drive space as well as Nvidia GeForce GTX 285M or Nvidia Quadro 2800/3800 graphics adapter. Eurocom may also install six-core Intel Xeon 5600-series microprocessor if demanded. The system sports 17” display with 1920x1200 or 1600x1050 resolution.
Since the system supports various microprocessors with up to 130W thermal design power, incredible amount of memory and several hard disk drives, needless to say that it weighs 5.4 kilograms and can hardly be truly considered mobile. Eurocom itself calls its D900F Panther as a desktop replacement system.
The starting price of the D900F Panther with six-core Intel Core i7-980X chip and moderate configuration of about $4200.
