Samsung outs 700G7A gaming notebook in Europe

A new 700G7A notebook from Samsung is aimed squarely at gamers. It has been spotted at a GamesCom press conference by German site NewGadgets and reveals a 17.3-inch screen with 1080p resolution. A 2GB AMD Radeon HD 6970m GPU is onboard as is a 2GHz quad-core Core i7 processor.

Options include up to 16GB of RAM and a Blu-ray drive. Standard features are made up of USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, an HDMI output, Bluetooth 3.0 and a uniquely backlit keyboard with the W, A, S and D keys glowing red while the rest of the keyboard is blue.

The notebook will launch in Europe this September with prices starting at 1,800 (nearly $2,600), but plans for a North American launch remain unknown.
