Last week, the US manufacturer Origin PC introduced the EON17-X laptop, and claimed it to be the “world’s most powerful notebook”. Now, the Miami-headquartered company announced in a press release that it will be launching the “world's first 3D Laptop with dual graphics cards in SLI”, called EON17-X3D. Reportedly, the new desktop replacement portable computer has a starting price of $3,032, is fully customizable and aimed at gamers, artists, and professionals.
According to the maker, users will be provided with a Full HD (1920-by-1080 pixels) widescreen display that measures 17.3-inches in diagonal and has a built-in 3D emitter. The whole stereoscopic (read: 3D) experience is made possible through the use of NVIDIA’s 3D Vision 2 wireless glasses (with LightBoost Technology) that users will have to buy separately. Moreover, for video decoding Origin PC has thrown in two high-end NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M graphics controllers, paired in SLI mode (total of 4GB GDDR5 VRAM).
The CEO of the custom PC builder, Kevin Wasielewski was quoted as saying: "ORIGIN PC continues to lead the industry by being the first to offer a 3D laptop with dual overclocked graphics cards in SLI." … "The ORIGIN EON17-X3D is the ultimate mobile 3D experience. Whether you are at home or on the road, you will forget where you are and become immersed in the world of 3D."
In terms of hardware specs, this model is pretty much the same as the previously announced EON17-X. You get up to a second generation Sandy Bridge Extreme Edition Intel Core i7-3960X (six processing cores), up to 32GB of 1333MHz Quad-Channel DDR3 RAM and up to 3TB storage capacity (three physical drives). Other features include an Intel X79 chipset, an illuminated keyboard (seven colours), 7.1 HD audio support, an HDMI interface and a multi-gesture touchpad with instant access buttons.
