COMPUTEX 2017 | EVGA's SC17 gaming notebook will soon have a GTX 1080 variant
The EVGA SC17 was recently outfitted with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, but the company is upgrading its flagship gaming notebook yet again, this time with a top-of-the-line mobile GTX 1080.
Tom's Hardware has spotted this new "SC17 1080" at Computex, and according to them the notebook is not much different from the version sporting the GTX 1070. Most of the specs remain largely identical; the only difference is in the processor, which has been upgraded from the Intel Core i7-6820HK to an unlocked seventh-generation i7-7820HK. The new SC17 variant still comes with a G-Sync–capable 4K display with a 60 Hz refresh rate, 32 GB of DDR4-2666 memory, a 256 GB M.2 NVMe SSD, and a 1 TB 7200RPM HDD.
To accommodate the larger graphics card, the SC17 1080 has been made slightly thicker. The overall design of the notebook stays the same though.
According to Tom's Hardware, the EVGA SC17 1080 will be available for purchase in July, at a yet-to-be-determined price.
