Proving that where there's a will, there's a way, these days higher-end desktop replacement laptops can beat mainstream gaming desktops on general-purpose computing performance, graphics performance, and even RAM capacity. But what about storage? For those with deep pockets, Eurocom now offers built-to-order notebooks with up to 28 TB of raw solid-state storage.

In its arsenal, Eurocom has two 17.3-inch DTR laptops — the Sky X9C and the Tornado F7W — that feature three M.2-2280 slots for SSDs, as well as two 2.5-inch bays for SSDs or HDDs.  Customers requiring extreme storage capacity can now order three Sabrent Rocket 4 TB SSDs (Phison PS5012-E12, 3D TLC NAND, PCIe 3.0 x4) and two Micron 5100-series 8 TB SATA SSDs for a total of 28 TB of raw NAND flash (the usable capacity will be lower). The cost of such a storage subsystem alone is about $10,700 without installation and RAID configurations, but if you need it, it exists: you will just have to open your wallet.

In addition to five storage devices, the Eurocom X9C can also pack Intel’s eight-core Core i9-9900K CPU, 128 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, and two NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics processors. A beefed-up configuration with 28 TB of raw NAND, a 4K panel, and other high-end parts will cost a whopping $20,500. Obviously, packing this amount of horsepower and storage capacity into a clamshell device is not a trivial task and requires usage of expensive components, so the price tag is not particularly surprising.

In addition to the Sky X9C and the Tornado F7W machines, Eurocom has other 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch notebooks that can accommodate more than one storage device. All of them can be equipped with a Sabrent Rocket 4 TB M.2-2280 SSD and/or a Micron 5100 8 TB 2.5-inch SSD to boost their storage capacity beyond that of a regular desktop, even though this is going to cost a small fortune.

    I have 100 TB in a mini-itx NAS. It's fun just to have the space and not to have to worry about running out (though my NAS is half full lol). Reply

    It is a pain when you’re laptop runs low but 28 tb of ssd storage when the majority of the content would be fine on a hdd. Reply

    I have that exact chassis at home (a *much* cheaper, and considerably older, build from Clevo, not Eurocom - but who cares), so maybe I shouldn't be the one mouthing off... yet still, that's not exactly the sort of high-design I'd expect from a $20,000 machine!

    Come on, Eurocom. If you're going to sell super-high-end uber-pricey computers like that, at least *consider* updating the look-and-feel to fit the bill...

    They just use what Clevo offers,but yeah if I’m paying even 2k I’m looking at the razer or MacBook type design and builds. Just a tad bigger To cram in all those components though. Reply

    Why no RTX6000 Laptop GPUs being offered?

    384bit and based on 2080Ti...

    Easy pass...

    They don’t offer the 2080ti in a laptop and the 6000 is a 295w part that costs $4k in desktop form. Imagine what they’d charge for a laptop version,$10k maybe? Reply

    Yea this thing is going to run 90C+ constantly. Reply

    That's not a bad thing in itself. It's always a tradeoff between performance and temps, and in this kind of systems I think most of its users would prefer performance over a 10C cooler temperature. Reply

    If it runs at about the same as the Sky X7C (it smaller brother with only 2xMVME/2xSATA) it runs at a surprisingly cool 45C - 50C. One of the advantages of a nice large chassis with plenty room for hearpipes and larger fans. Reply
