If you find the 5950X has too many cores for your liking, the ARX315 can also be outfitted with an 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X or 12-core Ryzen 9 5950X CPU depending on your needs. The exterior of the chassis is colored in a stealthy matte black finish, accented by four exhaust ports that house the copper heatsinks that are visible to the naked eye. The laptop also comes with a LED-backlit keyboard (with 15 color options) and a 240Hz matt display (the resolution is unknown).
Eurocom has released the Nightsky ARX315, a new 15.6-inch notebook that features a full-fledged Ryzen 9 5950X 16-core desktop processor and can be configured with either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3070 mobile GPU. Pricing starts at $2,683 when the 5950X and RTX 3070 are bundled. Eurocom designed the ARX315 with a 1.3-inch thick casing and adequate cooling to support the desktop-class processor. The CPU, GPU, and power supply components are all cooled by a heatsink constructed completely of copper. Six heat pipes connect all four heatsinks, with two big fans cooling the laptop.
Along the right of the laptop are a mic/headphone jack, another microphone jack (yes two jacks), and a single USB 3.0 port. At the rear, there is a USB Type-C port, full HDMI port, mini DisplayPort, and AC power. To the left, you get a Kensington lock RJ-45 ethernet port, dual USB 3.2 ports and a MicroSD card reader. For storage and memory, you get a good selection of options including dual M.2 NVMe 2280 slots and a single 7mm SSD/HDD hard drive slot for bulkier storage solutions. Sandwiched between the M.2 slots and hard drive slot are two DDR4 SODIMM slots capable of running up to 64GB of 3200Hz DDR4 memory.
This laptop is optimal for power users and professionals who need a desktop replacement capable of quickly crunching through big CPU workloads. Just keep in mind that laptops housing desktop components typically are best suited to desk duty plugged into the wall. Battery life with these notebooks is generally terrible and is best left for times where you only need to be on battery for a short period of time.
