News / rock launch 8800 SLi notebook graphics on a Quad core platform


A new beast is born - the Xtreme SL8 17” featuring SLi 8800M GTX graphics and Intel Quad core processor

rock yet again breaks a record, announcing the world’s fastest graphics on a notebook platform.

The Xtreme SL8 is a true 17” intense-gaming, number-crunching, mean-machine taking top spot in all mobile performance benchmarks. “It’s all about raw power” remarked Nick Boardman, CEO rock, “The SL8 packs four Intel Core 2 processor cores, two NVIDIA 8800M GTX SLi graphics cards, three 7200rpm SATA hard disks and all the trimmings to boot”.

It is the surreal level of detail that DirectX® 10 bought to gaming that has pushed the demand for graphics power to an extraordinary new height. But the SL8 is not just for the serious gamer – Intel® Core™ 2 Quad processor and up to 1 terabyte RAID hard disk space makes this almighty notebook ideal for the professional graphical artist, hardcore enthusiast or for mission-critical mobile solutions.

The lime light now shines flamboyantly on the SL8 replacing the goliath 20” Xtreme SL Pro SLi notebook which took the industry by storm early last year. As rock’s flag ship model, it doesn’t half pack a punch hitting around 15,000 in 3D Mark 06. But not forgetting the inordinate amount of effort put into the metallic gloss coated finish, stunning X-glass WUXGA screen and hardwearing brushed metal lid.

The Xtreme SL8 will be on sale mid-February and pre-ordered on rockdirect.com, models ranging from around £2500 - £3500.
