Eurocom Nightsky ARX15: "The world's most powerful 16C/32T AMD Ryzen 9 based 15.6-inch superlaptop" coming soon with prices from US$1,999 to over US$15,000
Eurocom is promoting the Nightsky ARX15 as “The world's most powerful 16C/32T AMD Ryzen9 based 15.6-inch superlaptop!” It’s a very specific boast, but it cannot be denied that any laptop featuring the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X chip is going to be special. However, the Eurocom Nightsky ARX15, which is coming soon according to the manufacturer, can be configured with more than just AMD’s powerful Matisse Zen 2 processor.
For US$1,999, the Eurocom Nightsky ARX15 superlaptop is a much more somber affair: “only” an 8-core, 16-thread desktop processor in the form of the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 GPU, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSHD, and no operating system. It’s the huge amount of configuration options for the Nightsky ARX15 that make the price rise astronomically up to and over US$15,000.
For instance, if you decided you wanted a 16-core, 32-thread AMD Ryzen 9 3950X fitted instead because the Ryzen 7 3700X simply doesn’t cut the mustard then your bill goes up by US$417 right there. If you would prefer 64 GB of RAM over 16 GB, you will have to fork out an additional US$983. Perhaps you would like a 4 TB SSD even if it costs an extra US$1,612 (the 8 TB enterprise model is US$3,945 more)? The final price really skyrockets if you start adding more internal storage – and the Eurocom Nightsky ARX15 is capable of 16 TB of storage across three drives.
It is possible to get the price for the Nightsky ARX15 superlaptop over US$15,000, and that’s before going through the options and accessories. It’s an almost bewildering selection on offer for potential customers although the battery choice is surprisingly limited to a 6-cell 62 Wh unit. The base weight of the Eurocom Nightsky ARX15 is 5.7 lbs/2.6 kg, and it measures 14.44 x 10.32 x 1.3 in/361 x 258 x 32.5 mm.
