Sky X9W Laptop With ‘5TB SSD’ and ’64GB RAM’ Launched

In case you are disappointed with the configurations of the high-end laptops that are currently selling in the market, perhaps the new Eurocom Sky X9W may interest you. This new laptop is an upgrade to the highly-appreciated Sky X9 that came out last year. Of course, before we go on and tell you about the mind-blasting specs of this laptop, take a note that the Sky X9W starts at $2,930!

The Sky X9W is being called as a mobile workstation by Eurocom, but the word “mobile” isn’t really fitting in well with this 4.8kg beast. The X9W gets a quad-core, Intel Core i7 ‘Skylake-S’ 6700K SoC and Intel Z170 Express ‘Skylake’ chipset. You can also choose between the Intel Core ‘Skylake-S’ i7-6700 or the Intel Core ‘Skylake-S’ i5-6600L SoC. For the GPU, you can choose between an 8GB Nvidia Quadro M5000M, a 4GB Nvidia Quadro M3000M, or a single 200W desktop class 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 980. To keep all that power tamed and avoid overheating, multiple fans have been provided under the hood.

Talking about the memory, you can either choose 16GB of DDR4 2133MHz RAM, or go up to to a whopping 64GB of DDR4 2666MHz RAM. There’s a 17.3-inch 4K (3840×2160) screen in the Sky X9W, but you can opt for a FullHD screen as well. Connectivity options include five USB 3.0 ports, one Type-C USB 3.1 port, one headphone jack, one mic jack, two Mini Display ports for powering up to four monitors, one HDMI port, and Wi-Fi.

The Eurocom Sky X9W allows you to have up to 5TB SSD storage (RAID 10 configuration). If you choose the top-of-the-line model with the maximum configuration, you will have to shell out a crazy $11,473 (around INR 775,000!), and it comes with a 3-year warranty and a carrying case. Lastly, the Sky X9W can be chosen with Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10.
