EUROCOM Panther 4.0 Specifications
Processors

The new 4 and 6 core processors consist of the Intel Core i7-4960X, I7-4930K, 4820K, 4th generation processors built upon the 22 nm architecture and running at up to 4 GHz. The Intel Core i7-4960X, I7-4930K and 4820K family is the perfect engine for power users who demand unrivaled performance in data and financial analysis, 3D modeling and gaming. The large 15 MB L3 cache and quad channel memory interface of the Panther 4.0 are especially beneficial when running heavily threaded applications.

With new features that make working with media faster than ever, new 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors help multimedia enthusiasts create, render, edit, design and engineer-how they want and where they want on their EUROCOM Panther 4.0. Power efficiency in the new processors allows for significantly longer battery life combined with increased performance.

Graphics
The Panther 4.0 is equipped with dual MXM 3.0B slots rated for 100W GPUs and is ready to SLI the fastest NVIDIA GeForce, Quadro and AMD Radeon GPUs. The EUROCOM Panther 4.0 is a Workstation class Laptop with support for professional class NVIDIA Quadro K5000M, K4000M, K3000M, K2000M graphics as well as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M, 770M, 765M and AMD Radeon HD 8970M.

Fully OpenGL 4.1 compliant and supporting a colour depth of 10 bits per channel provides the tools graphics and multimedia professionals need to do their jobs on the go. For heavy duty rendering where the utmost accuracy is required, the K5000M's ECC (error correcting code) memory is up to the task. NVIDIA Quadro cards offer OpenGL quad buffered stereo support, for a smooth experience working with complex 3D models.

Memory
EUROCOM Panther 4.0 uses quad channel memory, and enables the Panther 4.0 to initially support up to 32 GB of DDR3 1600 MHz RAM via four 8GB SODIMM 204 pin modules. With such massive amounts of RAM available and high performance Intel Core i7 processors, the Panther 4.0 becomes a great tool for virtualization and high performance professional computing environments.

High definition audio and video interfaces are supported to connect the Panther 4.0 to all the peripheral devices you need: S/PDIF is a digital audio interconnect standard based on the professional AES3 standard, it can carry two channels of PCM audio or multi channel surround sound. FireWire 800 is a high bandwidth, low latency isynchronous and asynchronous data delivery interface, ideal for audio, video and graphics transfer. HDMI 1.4a is a high quality audio and video interface ideal for transferring uncompressed audio and video from the computer system to digital devices. Display Port 1.2 is generally used to connect a video source, being the computer to a display device but can also be used to transmit audio. DVI-I is a digital and analog interface designed to transmit uncompressed video. The system allows for fast and easy media transfer though the 9 in 1 card reader.

That's actually not bad for a laptop. Price will be horrid, I'm sure, but specs-wise, not bad. I'd be interested to know how they managed to cool a 130w CPU in such a confined space.

probably with some 5200rpm fan if it's anything like some of the smaller graphics card coolers

I love how "Power" was literally a sentence! No battery will keep something like this alive for more then an hour :roll:

It should be labeled as a "Mobile Workstation", something that is powerful, portable, and easy to set up, but was never meant for a 7 hour flight from McChord to Robins :roll:

They have been doing this for awhile.... I can't remember the exact model...

I think it was a Clevo D700F or D500F...... something along those lines they put 920 up to a 980X i7s in there and usually have one new model every 2 years or so.

The cooling in these laptops is amazing and they really do not run all that warm.
