Reviews for the Rock Xtreme SL8-9550
The Xtreme family is Rock’s high-end gaming notebook range, the flagship of which is the XLS8-9550, a blisteringly fast SLI-configured desktop replacement notebook. It’s a big beast, measuring 394x299x60mm (wxdxh) and weighing a hefty 6kg, including the large power brick; you’ll only think it is portable if you’re used to lugging around a desktop PC and monitor to Lan parties. A very powerful desktop replacement notebook with a good array of features, but with a price tag to match

NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTX SLI:
Two 9800M GTX cards paired with SLI. The combination is about 0-40% faster than with a single 9800M depending on the game and application. As all dual SLI combinations, the 9800M GTX SLI suffers from noticeable micro stuttering when at lower frame rates at around 30 FPS.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
