Well, the Eurocom Sky M5 is a good gaming laptop in many of the more important aspects for gaming – gaming performance (no throttling under gaming), good thermals of the CPU and GPU and the laptop’s body, good keyboard, good display, enough slots for two M.2 SSDs and 2.5″ drive, relatively low weight.

Eurocom Sky X7E2

The Sky is the limit, or so says Eurocom with their absurdly powerful pseudo-notebook the Eurocom Sky X7E2. Behind the facade of a notebook are desktop grade CPU and graphics. The Sky X7E2 is powered by Intel’s Core i7-6700K desktop CPU and either a choice of desktop-equivalent Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060,1070 or 1080 graphics solution. Both, the CPU and GPU are easily replaceable due to its socketed design. With all that graphics horsepower it is surely guaranteed to scorch its competition without leaving a trace. Although the Sky X7E2 has a powerful graphics card it is unfortunate that Eurocom has decided to only opt for a peasant IPS Full HD display for its default configuration. For notebooks of these size and caliber it would’ve been better to have a 4K solution by default nonetheless one positive side of this is that the user can always opt to change it during the configuration process for either a 120 Hz FHD panel or a 60 Hz 4k panel. Furthermore, the Sky X7E2 also supports up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM which is beastly. Storage options for this notebook are also plentiful with mixed options of having up to a pair of M.2 SSDs and 2 additional hard drives possibly giving up to 5TB worth of storage space. As for wireless connectivity the Sky X7E2 is equipped with a Killer E2400 chip for Gigabit Ethernet connectivity however should you want a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth solution the user must give up one of the M.2 slots used for the SSD’s for a standard combo card. Although a beast like this means battery life is going to suffer which also most likely means that you are going to stay plugged in which at that point you might as well plug in the Ethernet cable for connectivity. Because the Sky X7E2 is one hefty notebook you can be guaranteed that the chassis construction is solid and rigid as can be. Speaking of heft, this notebook weighs a whopping 4.1 kg and that’s discounting the power supply which adds another 1.4 kg. All in all, this isn’t something you want to lug around on a regular basis without breaking your back. The keyboard hasn’t really changed much compared to its predecessor but scores well in being solid with good key travel and feedback, additionally the keyboard is also RGB backlit with 3 levels of brightness. The touchpad however remains a standard fare. In the end there really isn’t much to say about this notebook other than Eurocom’s engineers achieving a lot in a DTR form factor since essentially this notebook is loaded for bear like an equivalent Mini-ITX PC plus the peripherals seems really over the top.

84.5% Eurocom Sky X7E2 (Clevo P775DM3) Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Too hot to handle. We revisit the Clevo P775DM1 as the Eurocom Sky X7E2 with an unlocked LGA 1151 CPU and the fastest Pascal GPU to date. Core temperatures and fan noise are both quite high as expected when such high TDP components are involved.
Eurocom X7E2 (Clevo P775DM3-G) quick review
Source: Gaming Laptops Junky English
Well, the X7E2 is a very good machine overall. It probably has all the extras you’d like as a gamer, including an optional 120HZ 1440p display, TB3 port, MXM GPU and replaceable 1151 socket Intel CPU. It can handle the gaming load of a typical game, even the quite heavy Ashes Of Singularity. Now the X7E2/Clevo P775DM3 can even be configured with a Prema unlocked bios. Its caveats will rarely bother most of the gamers (weight, noise) as they are usual and expected, at least when compared to other laptops.

Eurocom Sky X4E2

Eurocom is based in Canada but has partnered with the Czech outfit, Goldmax, to provide EU-based support to its customers on this side of the Atlantic. The Eurocom Sky X4E2 packs more power than most desktops into a 15.6-inch laptop form factor. This understated 3.4 kg (7.5 lbs) NVIDIA VR Ready beast will go toe-to-toe with any laptop foolish enough to look it in the eye. Unlike other flagship gaming notebooks from big name manufacturers, the X4E2 encourages end-user modifications with features such as an LGA 1151 socket, MXM 3.0 slot, and 4x DDR4 SODIMM slots. This means owners can install desktop-class Skylake processors from their own home gaming rigs right onto the X4E2. This makes it a laptop that offers future upgrade paths as the laptop gets older. Eurocom is in a unique position, as it is the only vendor in the market to provide an extensive list of customization options to cater for professional users. Under the hood, the Eurocom Sky X4E2 runs on Intel Core i7-7700K CP, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 MXM GPU with 8 GB of GDDR5 VRAM, a single 16 GB RAM module, a 512 GB SSD (Samsung NVMe) and even a 1 TB hard disk drive for extra storage. The user can choose from an FHD (60Hz or 120Hz) G-SYNC panel or an Ultra HD 4K display. There is also a wide selection of memory options, starting from 8 GB all the way up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. In the storage department, the laptop offers room for up to 4 physical storage drives (two M.2 slots and two 2.5 inch bays), for a maximum storage capacity of up to 6 TB. Data stored in the laptop will be protected with a Kensington lock, biometric security, and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) data encryption. TPM encrypts data so only owners have access to it, even if the machine is misplaced or stolen. The X4E2 also comes with a fully backlit (7 colors) keyboard and dedicated lighting software. This notebook has stylish air vents at the back, the Sound Blaster audio, the Killer NIC technology, gaming settings in the control panel, the ability to create key macros plus the fact that user can customize the color of the keyboard lights. The Sky X4E2 comes with Eurocom’s signature, industrial grade copper heatsinks, powerful centripetal fans, and a multi-layered motherboard technology to ensure maximum thermal efficiency. As for connectivity options, there is 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, six USB ports (including two TB3/Type-C), two mini DisplayPorts, one HDMI 2.0 port, four audio ports, one Ethernet connector, a card reader, and a fingerprint sensor. The Eurocom Sky X4E2 is a good alternative to the usual laptop brands. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Source: Kitguru English
The Eurocom Sky X4E2 is an impressive gaming laptop that offers a great many upgrade paths both at the time of order and also in the future. Right now in 2017 we have little idea about the plans of Intel and Nvidia and have no clue whether Eurocom will be able to offer a next generation CPU or GPU for this laptop. All we do know for sure is that they will do their best.

Overall, the Eurocom Sky X9E3 is a few pounds too heavy as configured, but for those interested in a mobile workstation or desktop replacement and able to afford it, it offers amazing performance, and it can be configured anyway you like.

Comment

Eurocom: Eurocom has been a UK-based video game developer founded specifically to develop games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Later, Eurocom has expanded to other platforms and also sells laptops with own brand. The official location of the company is in Canada. Subsidiaries in USA exist. According laptops, Eurocom focusses desktop replacement laptops for the sell regions Anglo-America and UK. The laptops are not reviewed too often and the market share is very low. The ratings have improved recently (as of 2016).
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (Laptop): Pascal based laptop graphics card using GDDR5 graphics memory. Should offer a similar performance to the deskto GTX 1080. However, there is also a more power efficient "Max-Q" version that performs worse than the normal GTX1080 and is used in thin and light laptops.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI (Laptop): Two high-end GTX 1080 graphics card combined in an SLI combination. The gaming performance depends on the SLI profile support for the used game and can range from nothing to nearly 90% gains compared to a single GTX 1080.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.Intel Core i7 (Desktop):

6700K: Quad-core processor based on the Skylake architecture with integrated HD Graphics 530 and DDR3/DDR4 memory controller. Fastest Skylake desktop CPU at its launch mid 2015.7700K: High-end quad-core desktop processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 4.2 - 4.5 GHz. It is the top model of the Kaby Lake H-series in the beginning of 2017. The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1100 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake).
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

5.5 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


82.83%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
