Digital Storm claims X17E to be the fastest gaming notebook

updated 10:58 am EDT, Thu August 30, 2012

Digital Storm X17E will offer a choice of GTX 680M or Radeon 7970M GPUs

Digital Storm, maker of gaming-oriented desktops and notebooks, has just unveiled what it's calling the fastest gaming notebook. The X17E sports a 17-inch, 1080p display and will get either NVIDIA's GTX 680M or AMD's Radeon 7970M GPUs. The available Intel Core i7 3920XM can be overclocked to 4.5GHz.

The notebook can be outfitted with as much as 32GB of RAM and there is a Blu-drive onboard. USB 3.0 ports, an eSATA connection, and 9-in-1 memory card reader are accounted for as well. The keyboard has a number of lighting zones and a choice of seven colors to allow owners to customize it. The photos also show a biometric fingerprint scanner built into the case as well.

Digital Storm also plans to release a Signature Edition in the future that will feature unique paint, special branding, and its own packaging. Pricing for this model isn't yet known, though the regular X17E is due to arrive at the end of September, with prices starting at $1,753.
