This mini-notebook is a powerhouse being equipped an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition CPU and an NVIDIA GPU based on the Kepler architecture

In addition to launching the powerful, 15.6-inch Fox 4.0 notebook earlier this month, the Canadian tech company Eurocom, has announced in a press release that it is adding a new netbook, called Monster 1.0 to its portfolio of high-performance portable PCs. Aimed at mobile gamers and professionals, the device is apparently “capable of running 8 virtual machines”; weighs 4lbs (1.8kg) and can be configured with up to 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, and 1TB HDD.

The base configuration of the Monster 1.0 includes a Sandy Bridge Core i5 chip, but the netbook can be equipped with up to an Intel Core i7-3920XM Quad-Core central processing unit clocked at 2.9GHz – 3.8GHz (this is currently the fastest mobile chip based on the Ivy Bridge architecture). The CPU offers eight threads, 8MB of Level 3 cache and 55W max. TDP.

Users are further provided with an 11.6-inch widescreen display with a maximum supported resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels, a 2GB discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M GPU built using 28nm technology (Kepler architecture) and a 62.16WH battery that is good for up to 6.8 hours of usage.
