EVGA, the company known for making NVIDIA video cards decided to make a laptop. What happens when a gaming video card manufacturer decides to make a laptop? The EVGA SC17 is what.
They designed it with the ability to overclock it, complete with factory presets and hotkeys to overclock on the fly. Don’t like the factory presets? It has a complete GUI BIOs where you can adjust it to your hearts content. As the resident PC gamer here at IBeatItFirst.com, I want it. I want it bad.
Okay, cool. You can overclock it, so what? What are the specs? Core i7 @3.8GHz, GTX980M 8GB GDDR5, 32Gb DDR4, 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD. All this powering a 4k display. Give it to me. Give it to me now. Newegg got some hands on time with it and came away impressed, and have it available for preorder, launching on April 21st for $2,699. So if you’re feeling generous, you should buy it for me. I’ll give you a shout out while I’m running the live stream for Killer Queen Arcade League Night at The Grid: Games and Growlers. Please and thank you.
