Reviews for the Eurocom X3

86% Review Eurocom X3 (Clevo P157SM) Notebook | Notebookcheck
Ultimate Haswell. Equipped with some of the fastest mobile Haswell and Kepler chipsets currently available, the Eurocom X3 shows no mercy when it comes to application and gaming performance. We take a closer look at the hardware and its performance advantages over the previous Intel and Nvidia generations.
70% Eurocom X3
Source: PC Mag English version
With a potent Intel quad-core processor and Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 880M graphics card, the Eurocom X3 has the gaming chops to satisfy even competitive gamers. The blend of features and performance is pretty good, though many gaming laptops are still missing key features for a truly intuitive Windows 8 experience, despite shipping with Windows 8.1 Pro. The glaringly bright display skews colors, but it can be toned down in the display settings. The lack of a touch screen is also acceptable, but the lack of proper gesture support can be problematic. All in all, the Eurocom X3 is a very good gaming laptop, but it's missing a few refinements that could make it great, and the Editors' Choice goes to the similarly equipped, but more affordable, MSI GT70 2PC Dominator.

The Eurocom X3 prioritizes performance above all else, a quality that is certainly admirable in a gaming oriented device. With its Haswell processor, lightning fast SSD, 16GB of Ram and NVidia Kepler GPU the Eurocom X3 delivers on all fronts. Sure it's nice to have the latest and greatest technical specs, but users can easily cut out some of the fluff or tone down a few of the specs to create a far more cost friendly machine. There's a great deal here hidden in the Eurocom X3, but users are going to have to dig-in and find it for themselves.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M: High-end graphics card of the GeForce 700M series based on the Kepler architecture.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.  

4930MX: Mobile quad-core processor based on the Haswell architecture. Fastest CPU in Q2/2013 with an unlocked multiplier.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

3.49 kg:

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.

Eurocom: Eurocom Corporation is a computer hardware manufacturing company founded in 1989 with offices in Canada and USA. Eurocom produces Desktop Replacement Notebooks and Mobile Workstations. 

75.33%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
