    Yeah, but can it play Crysis?

    Shipping mid April it seem, so we'll have to wait a little longer to get our hands on one I guess.
     
    Wonder when the Gsync version will be released
     
    and it doesn't just play Crysis, but plays Crysis 2 and 3, (and perhaps even 4?)
     
    intro Video on it too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBrjV1T--gc
     
    Older teaser video from January as well here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vf2yjBkOv-k

    I already seen and liked the YouTube video. How does it handle overclocking temps? It seems like having an aluminum case would help it a lot.

    it' would be about 2400 euros with direct conversion on this date, but there's VAT and who knows what else to consider when setting a price for other regions, and how all that adjusts.

    It's being advertised here in the uk for £2399, so I'd guess it'll be even more in euros.

    A couple of questions: does the monitor support gsync, or is it only the Mini DisplayPort?
    Also, the early prototypes seemed to have glossy screens but the retail version has matte. Which is it?

    What kind of battery life can be expected? From looking at the spec's it seems to have everything. Is there any provision for GPU upgradability? Last question:  In the accessory picture, what is the plastic curved piece with the cord, is it a wi-fi antenna?

    No internal GSYNC on this model, external GSYNC is supported though.
     
    Retail version is a matte display.

    If you mean the box in THIS PICTURE, that's the power adapter.

    Battery life under normal operation is a little under 2 hours, obviously with gaming it will be quite a bit lower, around 30-45 minutes.
     
    For the curved piece with the cord, which accessory in particular?

    Hello Jacob,
     
    Is there any timeframe when the model with g-sync will be available? If not, will there be an upgrade path for purchasers of the non g-sync model? Like if we send in our model and pay a fee to upgrade to g-sync?
     
    Does the type-c connector support thunderbolt? Is the HDMI 1.4 or 2.0?

    Was wondering, have review versions been sent out to the usual suspects, and will it be available later on places like Newegg or Amazon?

    Wow very nice specs on that machine, matte screen and even backlit keyboard, good speed ram, great CPU and GPU, speedy mSATA primary drive and room for a 2nd drive (although I'd remove the 1TB mech drive supplied and drop in a SSD instead) this is a very well thought out machine. Nice overclocking options, will be interested to see how it handles the heat, my little machine (see signature) gets pretty hot when clocked up and powering through a demanding game. 8lbs is completely reasonable for a gaming laptop, especially one of this size and caliber. I'd expect battery life to be around the 2 hour area at most if gaming heavily - until battery tech improves, that's the one problem with powerful gaming laptops. 4k screen on 17" is wow.. great for gaming, although lol text is going to be tiny with non-gaming use at native resolution! Awesome job right out of the gate EVGA, and if this is your first effort, I see good things ahead! BTW, is this a customized rebranded Clevo/Sager or something like that? Beautiful. A free Torq gaming mouse too! If EVGA made a cordless mouse it would be even better - I have never been able to get used to trackpads and always carry a small cordless mouse with my laptop, my Mrs is the same. Price from EVGA $2,699 which is what I'd expect for such a top machine, if not higher for those specs. Looks like a win all round. No CD/DVD drive, but you can pick up new USB ones dirt cheap these days, and not often you need drives these days anyway, most stuff is digital downloads.

    Hi,
    Jacob will have to answer about reviewers, but it is already available for pre-order at Newegg & iBuyPower.  
    Newegg : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834099002 
    iBuyPower : http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/EVGA-SC-17-Gaming-Laptop
     
    Thanks,
    Rob

    Yes. Thank you Brandon. Nice job on the video presentation Jacob. Curved piece is the power adapter.

    Your other questions we answered except for one.
    According to the review pictures, it looks like the GPU is part of the motherboard and cannot be replaced without replacing the motherboard. The CPU is soldered to the motherboard as well.

    That's a little disappointing.  I mean I doubt many people ever do upgrade their laptop GPUs, but for some its a great perk.

    I have updated the GPU in my current laptop a couple of times. It is definitely a great perk.

    But, it is also slightly more expensive to build a MXM compatible motherboard with replaceable GPU and also takes up slightly more space. I assume that EVGA decided to build the GPU into the motherboard for cost cutting and space saving reasons.

    The CPU also saves some space by being soldered onto the motherboard. That decision was forced by Intel though since there is no socketed/replaceable design available for that model of Intel CPU.


    The insides:
    http://www.pcper.com/imag...73?return=node%2F65073


    GPU built into the motherboard is at the left center. CPU soldered to the motherboard is at the right center (above the memory). Having heatsinks exhausting out the sides and back is an interesting touch. I have never seen heatsinks around 3 sides of a laptop before. Having one small heatpipe sharing some heat between them is an interesting design as well. According to the review though, it sounds like EVGA may need to do a little more tweaking of their fan profiles to even out the temperature spikes and fan speed fluctuations (up, down, up, down).

    Looks somewhat like my AW 15 it is 3-Way as well.
    Without seeing the CPU how can you tell that it is soldered onto the motherboard?

    I know that the CPU is soldered to the motherboard because that is the only way Intel sells that CPU. It doesn't have pins or pads. It is FBGA connection interface which is a solder type connection.

    Thank you ty_ger07 , I wasn't aware of either of those. Very helpful info.
     
    Looks like the Newegg review rated it pretty good, for the short time they looked at it.

    Looking at the specs and comparing to "boutique" build-sites like xoticpc.com for example...  There is nothing on any of those sites inventory, stock or customizable that can touch this machine's specs and price combo...  It simply cannot be done. 
     
    That being said, the SC17 is still hefty in price, but for what it's packing, it's an overall good deal when stacked against the competition and would probably make for a decent desktop substitute for some.
     
    Good job EVGA!

    Amazing laptop.
    The USB 3.1-C is also Thunderbolt 3?
