If you've dropped the dough on a spiffy new enthusiast-level Sandy Bridge-E processor, you may decide to drop a corresponding level of dough on a spiffy new enthusiast-level Nvidia HTX 680 graphics card. (If so, we salute your Maximum-ness.) There's just one little caveat you should be aware of, however; Nvidia's initial WHQL drivers for the GTX 680 nerfs data transfer levels to slower PCI-E 2.0 speeds, rather than the blazing fast enthusiast-level PCI-E 3.0 x16 speeds the X79 chipset is capable of.
There's no mistaking Origin PC's new EON17-X laptop for an Ultrabook. The EON17-X is a full-fledged desktop replacement and the latest to incorporate Intel's X79 chipset in a mobile form factor. It's a "shock and awesome" notebook, as Origin PC describes it, that comes standard with an Intel Core i7 3930K processor, or you can upgrade to a 3960X Extreme CPU for bonus bragging rights.
