Lenovo’s Erazer X700 Gaming Desktopby Jarred Walton on January 9, 2013 3:10 AM EST
Continuing our Lenovo coverage, we have another gaming-centric system from Lenovo, and I have to admit I never saw this one coming. The new Lenovo Erazer X700 is a high-end gaming desktop that sports a case design that reminds me of Alienware’s chassis.
The Erazer X700 will sport high-end options like liquid cooling and Core i7 Extreme processors with OneKey overclocking. On the graphics front, Lenovo looks to be pushing AMD more than NVIDIA as they support CrossFireX with two HD 8950 3GB GPUs (basically 7950 Boost rebadges) and were showing the system with Eyefinity pushing three displays. However, NVIDIA GPUs are also available, albeit not quite as high-end: you can get up to two GTX 660 1.5GB cards in SLI.
Other features include support for up to 16GB DDR3 RAM, anywhere from 2x 1TB HDDs on the low-end configuration up to 4TB hard drives at the high-end, two external hot-swappable hard drive bays, tool-less expansion options, and integrated WiFi. Lenovo didn’t specify any pricing or a time frame for the launch of the Erazer, so it could be a few months or more before the product ships.
