A variety of performance levels are offered with the line of graphics to allow customers to choose the precise performance level.

    The top to bottom line of new GPUs are faster and more power efficient than the previous generation and offer a multitude of cool new features. It includes the world's fastest notebook GPU, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M, as well as GeForce GTX 870M, GeForce GTX 860M and GeForce GTX 850M enthusiasts GPUs. These GPUs feature blazing performance, battery saving technologies such as new NVIDIA Battery Boost, and the addition of cool new gaming features such as ShadowPlay and GameStream.

    THE EUROCOM X3 was recently benchmarked with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M and Intel Core i7-4930MX. Full results can be found online. The Eurocom Product Marketing Team recently created an X3 promotional video on YouTube:

    The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M graphics card has 1536 CUDA cores running at 954 MHz + boost with 8 GB GDDR5 memory running at 2500 MHz.

    The 880M is equipped with GPU Boost 2.0 for overclocking to allow for maximum performance. Performance is unmatched with 4th Generation Intel Core i7 Extreme processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M graphics in select Eurocom notebooks. Having the ability to add up to 32 GB memory ensures nothing will slow these beasts down. To store the latest games and software select Eurocom systems support up to 5 storage drives, with 2 mSATA solid state drives waiting for fast boot up times and blazing responsiveness.

    I like how they are keeping and maintaining the MXM module standard for Laptop Graphics. This really does make it easier to upgrade the laptops that support it. Though I highly doubt these new cards will work with my Sager NP8690 it does give me something to look forward too should I get a new laptop. It is very nice to be able to swap just about everything out of it.

    True, cause Clevo still messes up the MXM implementation in the BIOS, it's horrible. The system shown above is a P570WM, and you need the latest mobo revision to get the 880m working. Yet in my Alienware M15x from Sept. 2009 the 880m works perfectly fine. Quality firmware matters.

    While eurocom (as Clevo reseller) always promotes the "MXM capability" of their systems, it's far from the truth to say that a Clevo shell is future-proof due to upgradability, the firmware always messes this up even though the hardware interface is there. I'm under the impression Clevo does this intentionally, so they can sell more new systems.
