EUROCOM has released the new Sky Z7 R2 laptop, which has the ability to upgrade components typical of desktop systems. Interestingly, the company has previously offered a similar approach in its mobile workstations. But it was the first time she introduced such a feature into a gaming product.
First, the EUROCOM Sky Z7 R2 laptop is fully upgradeable. Its modular slots allow you to upgrade your processor, graphics card, memory, storage, and even an LCD and many other components. It can be upgraded just like any modern desktop PC, but the difference is that EUROCOM itself sells the components. Second, the system itself is a powerful configuration with desktop-familiar components.
So, the EUROCOM Sky Z7 R2 laptop contains a motherboard based on the Intel Z590 system logic set and a desktop processor installed in an LGA1200 socket. The configuration can include chips up to Intel Core i9-10900K or Core i9-11900K. The RAM subsystem is based on four SODIMM slots and supports the installation of up to 128 GB of DDR4 memory with a frequency of up to 3600 MHz. The storage subsystem can contain solid-state drives with a total capacity of up to 32 TB. A total of four drives can be installed: three M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 and one with PCIe 4.0 support. Users can choose from NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and 3060 graphics cards in the form of an MXM 3.1 module.
Additionally, the laptop carries onboard a Killer E3000 network adapter with a 2.5GB LAN RJ-45 port, a WiFi 6 wireless communication module, a keyboard with RGB backlighting of individual keys, a TPM 2.0 module, and a fingerprint scanner. The sound subsystem is based on the Creative Super X-Fi Ultra DSP chip, Creative Sound Blaster Atlas card, and ESS SABER HiFi DAC converter. Two Thunderbolt 4.0 / Type-C ports are available from the connection interfaces, one USB-C 3.2 Gen2, three USB-A 3.2 Gen2, two miniDP 1.4, one HDMI 2.0, two audio connectors. The dimensions of the laptop are 399x319x44 mm with a weight of 3.8 kg.
The top configuration of the EUROCOM Sky Z7 R2 laptop with an Intel Core i9-11900K processor and 128 GB DDR4 3200 MHz (support for 3600 MHz modules is declared, but they are not mentioned in the configuration yet) is estimated at $ 8250. This is just the hardware price – not including the cost of calibration, software, and additional peripheral equipment.
