Samsung has just unveiled an upgraded version of its high-performance Series 7 Gamer notebook. The news comes from the company’s very own Samsung Tomorrow blog, which claims the mobile device is named Yellow 3D and will hit the store shelves in South Korea on August 14 (2012), priced at 2,900,000 SKW (about 2,570 US Dollars).
Apparently, the powerful gaming laptop will now be available with an AMD Radeon HD 7870M graphics card that is based on the 28nm GCN architecture and offers 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory and support for DirectX 11.1. Furthermore, the 8.4-pound mobile computer will sport a 17.3-inch LED-backlit SuperBright (400 nit) 3D display with a native resolution of 1920-by-1080 pixels.
According to Samsung, the high-performance notebook houses 8GB of internal DDR3 RAM, a mechanical hard drive with a storage capacity of 1TB and a 128GB SSD for quick boot and resume times.
Other features presumably include Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 radios complemented by two USB 3.0 ports, an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7-3610QM processor, an SD/SDHC media card reader and a 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.
