Eurocom Scorpius can now be configured with GTX 980M SLI GPUs
The Scorpius has been one of Eurocom's most extreme offerings in the 17.3-inch category. However, it had not seen significant internal upgrades since its inception in 2012 with its GeForce GTX 680M SLI graphics. Three years later, Eurocom has finally announced that the Scorpius can be configured with GTX 980M SLI graphics as well as Nvidia Quadro GPUs up to the K5000M.
The upgrades are made possible by the dual MXM 3.0b slots in the notebook that give the Scorpius longer legs than competing gaming notebooks. The ability to upgrade from a GTX 680M all the way to a GTX 980M is very rare on gaming models from other major manufacturers.
However, there is no word yet on configuration options for the new Radeon R9 M390X or newer GCN GPUs. The highest option is still the HD 7970M on the Scorpius, so Radeon fans will have to wait a bit longer. The R9 M390X is already available on certain Alienware 15 configurations.
The Scorpius is based on the Clevo P370EM barebones we reviewed back in 2012. See our full review page for more benchmarks and data on the high-end notebook.
