Is That A Notebook? MALIBAL's Six-Core, Dual-GPU, Speed Demon

Inside The Nine X7200

The MALIBAL Nine X7200’s Core i7-980X six-core, 12-thread desktop processor requires a great amount of cooling, which Clevo accomplishes with its twin-fan twin-radiator heat sink.

Each GeForce GTX 480M graphics module gets a separate cooler, differentiated from lesser designs by its added thickness.

Under those sinks are two enormous GF100 graphics processors and an equally-imposing desktop CPU socket. Three hard drives are supported above the system board, two in a double-drive cage and one in a basket under the battery.

MALIBAL loaded this X7200 with two Intel X25-M drives, using the ICH10R RAID controller in striping mode to achieve the highest level of performance with no loss in drive capacity.

The power brick is actually a little larger than its namesake, the massive size responsible for outputting 300 W without the benefit of a cooling fan.

A super-thick, yet otherwise compact, battery boasts an enormous 7844 mWh capacity.

    Why are you still using AVG?

    Fast processors, high memory bandwidth, and quick hard drives have little effect on AVG.

    They shouldnt really be classed as 'Notebooks/laptops' in this class.

    Anything above a standard 17" chassis and I refer to them simply as 'portable PCs'.
