Eurocom is updating its Sky Z7 desktop-grade laptops with the new Intel Rocket Lake-S processors and Nvidia’s mobile RTX 3000 GPUs. The Sky Z7 R2 is among the first laptops to support the PCIe 4.0 standard as it integrates an Intel Z590 motherboard, so the dGPU and one of the NVMe SSD drives can take advantage of the increased bandwidth.

There are many customization options offered for this model. The 17.3-inch display can be configured with either an FHD 300 Hz panel capable of 100% sRGB color reproduction, or a 4K 60 Hz panel capable of 100% ARGB. Users can also opt for a G-Sync or a non-G-Sync display, a professional calibration, plus an expansion module with up to 3 additional DP video outputs. For the dGPU side, users can choose between RTX 3060 / 3070 / 3080 with maximum TGP+boost.

As far as new CPU options go, there is only one addition over the existing 10xxx series and that is the i9-11900K. These can be coupled with up to 128 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 26 TB of NVMe+SATA storage. Users can also opt for external BluRay or DVD-RW drives.

The port selection is quite generous and includes 3 x USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, 1 x USB-C 3.2 Gen2, 1 x USB-C 3.2 Gen2 x2 + 1 x Thunderbolt 3.0  or 2x Thunderbolt 4 (only for the Rocket Lake-S models), 1 x HDMI 2.0 output (with HDCP), 1 x 2-in-1 audio jack (headphone/mic), 1 x 2-in-1 audio jack (mic/SPDIF Optical), 1 x GbE jack, plus a UHS-II SD card reader. There are quite a few connectivity options, as well, including Wi-Fi 5 + BT 5 and Wi-Fi 6 + BT 5.1. Other features include a fingerprint reader, Creative Super X-Fi Ultra DSP chip, Creative Sound Blaster Atlas and ESS SABRE HiFi DAC, 560 W or 780 W AC adapters, plus the possibility of removing the webcam, microphones and Wi-Fi module for increased security. A fully equipped system can weigh up to 3.8 kg (8.36 lbs) and the profile measures 44 mm (1.76 inches).

Starting price for the i9-11900K model equipped with 16 GB RAM, 500 GB NVMe SSD and an RTX 3060 GPU is set to $3,033. Max price for a fully equipped variant can go up to US$18,737.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
