Release roundup: Golden PSUs, a big honkin' laptop, and Mini-ITX goodness


— 5:56 PM on August 26, 2010

This week in our release roundup, we have news from Corsair, Eurocom, XFX, and Zotac:

  • World's first 300W notebook with XTU, XMP, i7-980X and SLI GTX 480M. This acronym soup is none other than Eurocom's latest 17-inch gaming laptop, which pairs a six-core Intel Core i7-980X processor (that's the desktop one) with Nvidia's quickest "mobile" graphics chip, the GeForce GTX 480M (which is based on the mighty GF100 GPU). Outfitting the Panther 2.0 with those two components via Eurocom's configurator yields a price of $4,995, but the same system is available for a more reasonable $2,631 with a Core i7-930 and a GeForce GTX 285M.

I've gotta say, those Zotac Mini-ITX mobos would make great candidates for a home-theater PC. You could chuck in a TV capture card or even a discrete graphics card for PC gaming from the couch. We'll have to keep our eyes peeled for retail availability.
