Reviews for the Eurocom Scorpius P370EM

80% Eurocom Scorpius Review
Source: Maximum PC English
Fortunately, most of these issues can be mitigated. You can save money by skipping out on the 3D monitor and second SSD. And you can overlook its battery, weight, and trackpad issues by understanding that the Scorpius is best used as a desktop replacement. Its performance is simply off the charts, and complaining about its other problems is like complaining about how a Ferrari is expensive, bad with fuel economy, and doesn’t have enough cup holders.

The oft used saying "you get what you pay for" is particularly true in the case of the Eurocom Scorpius. What you get for your $5,297 is the fastest mobile processor available, not one but two of the fastest Nvidia graphics cards on the market, a gorgeous HD display, Blu-ray reading and writing capabilities, and a multi-color backlit keyboard. It may be heavy, and it may not be the flashiest gaming rig out there, but when it comes to sheer graphics horsepower, nothing else comes close. That's why it replaces the Alienware M18x as our Editors' Choice for high-end gaming laptops.

Model:

"Gaming laptop" suggest a thick, heavy and expensive machine. This is not surprising because the components in a gaming notebook require extra cooling. So, size increases and mobility shrinks. The Eurocom Scorpius is a high-end gaming laptop, which is capable of displaying 3D images. The 17,3-incher comes with Windows 7 and an Intel Core i7 quad core extreme edition processor. With two of the latest Nvidia graphic cards, this laptop promises stunning graphics performance. Indeed, it can run the latest games at maximum settings with ease. The Eurocom Scorpius features a 17.3-inch fullHD display (1920 x 1080 pixels) for a great gaming experience.

Alike other gaming laptops in the market, the Eurocom Scorpius has a bulky design and is really heavy. Considering the innards, it's not really a surprise that it weighs up to 3.5 kg. The Eurocom Scorpius features two graphic cards, up to 32 GB of RAM, four storage drives and an 8 cell battery. However, even with the 8 cell battery, the battery life of this gaming laptop is really short and rather apt for emergency use. However, this is not important, because the Eurocom Scorpius is best used as a desktop replacement. With a stunning and super sophisticated specification, it is even able outperform desktop PCs. Thus, there is no doubt that the Eurocom Scorpius is a perfect choice for gamers.

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.  


3920XM: Fastest Ivy Bridge mobile CPU (and fastest mobile CPU at all) at the time of arrival (April 2012) and clocked at 2.9 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.8 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1300 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. Compared to the other quad-core it features a 10W higher TDP of 55W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
