The Metabox Pro P170SM strikes the perfect balance between ultra high-end performance, laptop mobility and the visual comfort of
a spacious 17.3" display. It's only natural that it features the worlds fastest and most advanced graphics cards bringing with it unparalleled high-end
video performance that comes to life on its stunning 17.3" Full-HD LED display. For a pure high-end desktop replacement, fused with the portability
and ergonomics of an agile and aesthetically sophisticated 17.3" laptop, nothing quite comes close to the Metabox Pro P170SM.
The Graphics Cards
THE WORLDS FASTEST - NVIDIA GeForce Go GTX 880M 8GB
The almighty new GeForce Go 880M 8GB DDR5 features a massive 1536 CUDA cores. As a result, the 880M is 20% faster than NVIDIA's last generation 780M, setting an enormous benchmark in ultra
high-end mobile computing. It is quite simply, the fastest, most technologically advanced mobile graphics card in the world.
NVIDIA GeForce Go GTX 870M 6GB DDR5 & 860M 4GB DDR5
With higher texture fill rates and faster graphics clock speeds the new generation NVIDIA
Ge Force Go GTX 860M 4GB DDR5 and GTX 870M 6GB DDR5 deliver up to 40% more
power than previous generation models. NVIDIA's new Kepler GPU architecture is at the
core of the new video cards and has been designed from the ground up to not only maximise performance
but to increase performance per watt efficiency. This equates to a far improved thermal design that significantly
lowers operating temperatures and boosts under-load performance. On top of that, NVIDIA's new GPU Boost 2.0 technology
offers a very intelligent performance optimisation engine that actively works in the background and will further boost
in-game performance by up to 15%.
AMD Radeon R9 M290X GPU with 4GB GDDR5
The M290X is AMD's most technologically advanced graphics card to date. With a mammoth 2.8 billion transistors and AMD's new GCN architecture the
phenomenal M290X is engineered to deliver the ultimate graphics performance for gamers and professionals alike. Furthermore, powered by a set of
innovative hardware and software technologies, AMD's App Acceleration gives you enhanced speed and performance beyond traditional graphics
and video processing, enabling you to multitask much more efficiently.
Intel's all-new Haswell range of mobile processors redefine mobility and performance like no other processor before it.
It is for this reason that we have been able to produce the most high-powered and energy efficient Metabox laptops to date.
Featuring up to 200 million more transistors than the former generation processor, the Haswell core delivers a sizeable 15% performance increase.
Whilst that figure is impressive, the greatest technological enhancement lies in Intel's devotion to maximising power efficiency.
The new Haswell processor features a 3-Power-State chip-level management system that enables the hi-tech processor to only be
utilised when needed. Therefore, even during the most rudimentary of tasks, for example typing on your keyboard, the processor
will intelligently switch itself off and back on, only as it is needed. All of which means you get significantly more mileage out
of every percentage on your Metabox battery, enabling you to do more no matter where you are.
Intel's Haswell is not just another jump in a techonological cycle, it is an immense leap forward in true laptop mobility and
we are thrilled to showcase it's full potential on the new Metabox Pro P170SM.
Every bit as hi-tech as it should be, the Metabox Pro P170SM features the latest in mSATA technology with two mSATA bay's
running at full SATA 3 speeds. This means you can configure your Pro P170SM with two ultra fast SATA 3 SSD drives, configurable
in RAID 0/1 or as individual SSD drives configured in Primary or Secondary positions. All of which will ensure that everyone of
your files are accessed at lightning speeds. Best of all, this leaves the standard primary hard drive bay empty for additional
The Metabox P170SM features four memory sockets running in dual channel. Upgrade to a maximum of
34GB's DDR3 1600MHZ memory or a blistering 16GB DDR3 1866MHZ memory and unlock blazing fast data transfer speeds
that will ensure the CPU is never left waiting for its next command.
The Metabox Pro P170SM's backlit keyboard displays seven vibrant illuminated colours and three
colour zones that can be customised to an individual colour. Colours:
The Metabox Pro P170SM features a fingerprint scanner for efficient and secure access to your operating system.
The scanners accurate one-swipe detection is all it takes to get you into windows quickly, eliminating the need for memorising
lengthy and mundane passwords.
The Metabox Pro P170SM features two standard sized SATA 3 hard drive bays, two mSATA SATA 3 bays and an optional Optical Drive Bay Hard Drive caddy.
This means you can configure your Pro P170SM with 5 individual drives, making it one of the most storage capable laptops in the world.
The Metabox Pro P170SM is wrapped in a beautiful and durable brushed black onyx metal enclosure.
The days of having to sacrifice battery life in order to obtain high-end graphics performance
are a thing of the past. NVIDIA's Optimus Technology and AMD's Enduro Technology seamlessly calculates how best to optimise
your notebooks battery by intelligently fast-switching between Intels new integrated HD
4000 graphics card and the P170SM's high-end graphics card. The technology works by actively calculating your precise graphical requirements
and directing those data streams to the most suitable card for processing. Therefore during less graphically intense applications
the dedicated video card is powered off and the integrated HD4000 is activated to handle both rendering and display calls to
conserve power and provide the highest possible battery life. As a result, you can focus on doing the fun stuff, like watching
a movie or playing a game, with the assurance that you will be getting the greatest performance and longest battery life from your P170SM.
