Reviews for the Eurocom Racer

86% Review Eurocom Racer Gaming-Notebook (2720QM / HD 6970M) | Notebookcheck
A New Challenger. The Canadian manufacturer, Eurocom, is the first to combine a speedy Intel Sandy Bridge processor with a powerful AMD Radeon HD 6970M, housed within the 15.6" P150HM barebone. The big question in the air is, of course, whether this duo can measure up to Nvidia's flagship graphics card, the Geforce GTX 485M?

Perennial speed-laptop maker Eurocom must have taken that advice to heart, because the company set—and met—some very high expectations with its Racer, a 15.6-inch gaming machine. It's plain-looking, and the battery life is poor, but the Racer lives up to its name. It's one of the fastest 15-inch notebooks to ever hit our labs—and a very good value.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


2720QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear.
