Highlights from EVGA:

  • 100% EVGA in-house design from the ground up

  • Unibody design with 1.05 inch (2.65 cm) thickness including RJ45
  • USB 3.1 Type-C support

The SC17 offers a 4K display with G-Sync (a first for laptops at this resolution) and features the company's "Superclocked" branding for the main components, with a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7 processor running at 3.8 GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M GPU clocked at 1200 MHz, and G.SKill DDR4 2133 memory overclocked to 2666 MHz.

The known specs:

  • 17.3-inch 4K G-Sync display
  • Intel Core i7 6820HK Unlocked CPU
  • NVIDIA GTX980M with overclocking support

  • 2 TB storage drive
  • USB 3.1 Type-C
  • FHD front camera
  • Synaptics Clickpad 1.5

Other than the promise that this laptop will ship at some point in 2016, we don't have much to go by as far as pricing or availability is concerned just yet.

Indented keyboard section with apple-style island keys. I'm getting a little sick of that these days, both design wise and the fact that they often had kinda shitty action. I may not be the sort that needs a mechanical keyboard but the action on a ton of those keyboards is truly horrid.

It also seems to have a fan under the top left, I wonder if it'll heat up the WASD keys any, cause that also kills it for me.

sadly its 4k that strangely a deal breaker for me as its a laptop i would prefer saving money by not having the excessive 4k screen. if theres a 1080p model i would look at it as a option for my ageing msi gt60 i have

"•USB 3.1 Type-C support" is that USB Type-C Gen 1, or USB Type-C Gen 2?

The "The known specs:" are not listing the USB specification using the proper naming nomenclature from the USB-IF naming guidelines.

the 4k seems to be a feature box thing, at 17" it seems excessive. A model with 1080p, G-SYNC, and some high refresh would be a good thing.

That is really funny... and sad.
