AVADirect states that the company is the first to offer the Clevo P270WM gaming notebook, and it’s based on Intel’s X79 chipset and the newest Sandy Bridge-E processors. The Clevo P270WM is a fully customizable gaming notebook; AVADirect states that users can “expect performance increases as much as 35-50 percent [versus gaming notebooks on the market that are not based on the X79 chipset].” The notebook can be equipped with up to an Intel 6-core processor, the i7-3960X.
The 17.3-inch Clevo P270WM gaming and desktop replacement is the successor of the popular Clevo X7200, and features a brand new design on top of the new processor choices. The new design can fit up to three 9.5-inch hard drives (optional RAID), has two USB 3.0 ports, SLI support, an HD display, HDMI 1.4a support, and a re-designed ExpressCard slot.
The NVIDIA GTX 580M 2GB is the standard graphics card included inside – it offers SLI support, 384 CUDA cores – but 768 CUDA cores when in SLI. Also offered up is the NVIDIA Quadro 5010M 4GB GPU for the “elite” option in GPUs. The memory can be set to quad-channel DDR3 SDRAM for speeds up to 1866MHz and up to the 32GB capacity (four slots). If that wasn’t enough, the P270WM also supports 3D technology and has a backlit keyboard for use in darkly lit areas.
