Samsung are getting their game on with the new Series 7 Gamer laptop, a 3D capable machine aimed squarely at the hardcore gamer.
With a full HD 3D display measuring 17.3 inches, it probably won’t be the most portable laptop you’ve ever slipped in your rucksack. But what it lacks in slimness it certainly make up for in graphical grunt.
Under the hood it’s equipped wih an Intel Core i7 processor and AMD Radeon HD graphics card alongside 2GB of GDDR5 graphic memory and an 8GB ExpressCache system that Samsung claims will offer “incredible gaming speeds”.
So to answer that question on the tip of your tongue; yes, it can run Crysis.
Shipping with Windows Home 7 Premium edition and a pair of active shutter glasses, the Gamer also features VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort, headphone and microphone inputs,as well as two USB 3.0 slots and two USB 2.0s.
Those looking to just get some work done can tone down the specs using a Mode Dial, that swtiches between the powerful Gaming mode, a Balanced mode for regular Office use, Library mode for the quietest settings and a Green mode to maximise battery life.
“With the Series 7 Gamer we have delivered a notebook that can compete with a desktop PC, and that sets the benchmark for gaming notebooks,” said Damian Cusick, General Manager, Computing, Samsung UK and Ireland.
“The Series 7 is packed with features that specifically meet the demands of serious gamers, and with its four optimisation modes, can deliver optimum performance for a wide variety of different activities, at the turn of a dial.”
Out now, you can pick the laptop up for £1,499.
