Eurocom X5 with GTX 780M and i7-4930X Dominates Benchmarks

The EUROCOM X5 has been stress tested and benchmarked with an Intel Core i7-4930MX processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M graphics with extreme results. "Eurocom created the X5 gaming laptop so our gaming warrior clients could discover their dark side, the performance and design are unmatched" Mark Bialic, Eurocom President. The EUROCOM X5 will be equipped with high resolution 17.3" 1920x1080 IPS and 3D displays, upgradeable extreme processors, next generation NVIDIA GTX 700M graphics, multiple storage options (up to 5 physical drives) and up to 32 GB of DDR3-1600 memory.

Personalize your own Eurocom laptop weapon with a custom backlit keyboard, with 7 colours, 3 zones and 8 modes to dominate and stand out. To store the latest games and software the X5 can support up to 5 storage drives, with 2 mSATA solid state drives for fast boot up times and blazing responsiveness. The following 4th gen CPUs will be available: Intel Core i7-4930MX with 4 cores and 8 threads running at 3 GHz with 8 MB L3 cache, Intel Core i7-4900MQ, Intel Core i7-4800MQ and Intel Core i7-4700MQ.

That's not a laptop, this is what we call a desktop replacement. 1 Hour of battery life and 12 pounds is not entirely portable.

Running the physics test of Vantage on the GPU instead of the CPU... that's eurocom.

What do you mean? Whenver I do 3DMark Vantage I just run the test. How do you do it for the CPU?

In "Options" you'll find a checkbox that says "Disable PPU", it's checked by default, so you probably never run that test on your GPU if you never change any settings (unless it was unchecked in old versions of Vantage).

If I'm not mistaken it stands for "physics processing unit" and if it is enabled then the physics test will run with Nvidia's PhysX, provided you have a Nvidia GPU in the system and PhysX enabled in the Nvidia control panel.
However the idea of the physics test is to stress the CPU, if those two tests are run on the GPU you'll get a bloated physics score which doesn't tell you anything about the actual CPU performance.

That is so crazy. Why would the default be unchecked! ahhhhh

But I could see their testing was probably done to show the GPU performance, so doing the physx with the gpu could very well have been what they wanted.

I have no idea what those numbers mean. Maybe some comparison tests also, just for the reference??

Unfortunately, these high end gaming laptops become expensive paperweights after just two years.

It was originally unchecked by default, so enabling PhysX would inflate those scores. A later update checked it by default.

It's more representative for Nvidia users who enable PhysX (given that it's part of a default installation).

So if I wanted to really push my system and find out how powerful it is. What benchmarks should I use?

Ummmmm real world... Such as BF3, Crysis, ect... for gaming..... Encoding real world, such as Media Expresso, handbrake, Winzip, Excel trader.net, benchmarks for CPU in GFlops....

Not really. The vast majority of the high end gaming laptops are user upgradable with a bit of effort. There are people over on NBR forums running HD7970m's in the original M15x.

The GPU can be switched out for the latest generation model whilst the CPU will remain relevant for quite some time (judging by the incremental improvements we are seeing).

The latest gaming laptops with i7 Quads and GTX780m are pretty impressive considering the overall package. Thanks to Optimus and aggressive CPU clock profiles they even get decent battery life (excluding gaming of course).

The slowest quad core i7 can turbo up to 3.2Ghz across all four cores (8 threads), whilst the 780m is basically a GTX770m downclocked (850/5000 nstead of 1050/7000). Judging by owners over at NBR GTX680 desktop matching performance is pretty easy to attain.
