Featuring a six core CPU with two HD5870 or GTX 480 graphics card, the Panther 2.0 will put most desktops to shame.

A six core CPU with two HD5870 or GTX 480 graphics card sure sounds like a dream desktop PC. However, this is not a desktop PC but the latest powerhouse from Eurocom that will put most desktops to shame. Add to that a 17.3″ Full HD screen, 24GB RAM, 4TB of Storage space and USB 3.0 and you have the Panther 2.0 notebook.
