Canadian PC manufacturer Eurocom has launched what it claims is the world's first quad-core notebook. The D900C Phantom-X Mobile Workstation quad-core offerings include Intel’s 1066MHz FSB Q6600 and Q6700 Core 2 Quad processors along with 1333 MHz FSB E6x50 Core 2 Duo processors.
This 12-pound desktop replacement features a 1920x1200 pixel 17.1 inch screen, and can be equipped with your choice of Nvidia GPUs (GeForce Go 7950, 8700 GT or Quadro FX1600M) running in single-card or SLI mode, up to 750GB of internal HDD space, up to 4 GB of system memory, a Blu-ray drive as well as 802.11n wireless connectivity.
"It's a workstation-caliber PC complete with Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) in a notebook form factor," said Mark Bialic, President of Eurocom. "It may be large, but this is one extremely fast notebook that replaces desktop based workstation with over 1 hour of built-in UPS battery."
Additional features include an integrated 1.3MP webcam, Bluetooth, internal TV HDTV Tuner and a theatre audio system. This bulky powerhouse measures 15.8" x 11.9" x 2.05" and will start selling at a whopping $2,726 for a base system with a Core 2 Duo E6600 processor.
