EVGA decided to enter the mobile gaming market and recently announced their first gaming notebook – the EVGA SC17. The new EVGA SC 17 gaming notebook features a slim profile with a nice 17.3-inch 4K UHD display and is powered with an Intel Core i7-6820HK (unlocked) paired with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M discrete graphics processor. A GTX 980M might not be sufficient enough for a 4K gaming experience, but you can always change the resolution or the game details when gaming to increase your fps rate. Even a full pledge GTX 980 Ti isn’t enough (on some games at max settings) to deliver 60fps on a 4K UHD resolution desktop setup. But the EVGA SC17 is still one heck of a mobile gaming machine. There are more beefy components installed on the SC17, check them out below.
