The Eurocom PX7 Pro SE is an Intel Xeon E3 v5 based server housed in a laptop's body
Eurocom has introduced its PX7 Pro SE mobile server. The system has the form factor of a laptop featuring a 17.3-inch full HD IPS LED-backlit display, with a matte finish. It’s powered by a quad-core Intel Xeon E3-1505M v5 CPU that operates on Intel CM236 server chipset. The system supports up to 64GB of DDR4 ECC RAM on four SODIMM slots. Its modular GPU options include the Maxwell-based, NVIDIA Quadro M5500, M4000M, M3000M, M2000M and M1000M GPU, courtesy of a single, upgradeable MXM 3.0 slot. The top-end NVIDIA Quadro M5500 GPU comes with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM, and it will make the system VR-Ready!
The mobile server is also big on storage as it supports up to four M.2 SSDs where two of which are PCIe-based, and the remaining pair are SATA-based. There’s also a standard 2.5-inch drive. The onboard optical drive is removable and can replaced with another 2.5-inch drive. All in all, the Eurocom PX7 Pro SE supports up to 16TB of storage capacity when all six storage drive options are in use.
The mobile server features the Rivet Killer E2400 Gigabit LAN controller with a single Gigabit port. Its 9-cell, 7,500 mAh, built-in Li-Ion battery provides up to 1.5 hours of uninterruptible power. Its I/O ports include six USB 3.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2 connector, a HDMI 1.4 port, and a Thunderbolt 3 port. The mobile server supports “server-class operating systems” like Microsoft Server 2012 R2. It also supports Windows 8, Windows 7, Ubuntu and Linux OSes. The mobile server weighs 3.8kg, and it's certainly not meant to be carried around like a traditional notebook.
