Second-gen Valkyries powered by fourth-gen Intel Core processors
iBuypower on Monday stepped into the Haswell era, announcing the launch of the latest generation of its Valkyrie gaming laptops. The new Valkyrie series comprises the 15-inch CZ-15 and 17-inch CZ-27, both of which are powered by 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors and the latest Nvidia graphics cards.
The cheapest CZ-27 SKU costs $1,349 and has a Core i7-4700MQ processor, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M with 3GB VRAM, 500GB HDD and 8X dual format DVD±RW combo. The CZ-27 and the CZ-15 are both available in three basic flavors, but there is no dearth of toppings. This is what a fully tricked-out CZ-27 looks like on paper: Intel Core i7-4930MX Extreme Edition processor, 32GB of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M with 4GB VRAM, 6x Blu-Ray-R burner, and 1TB solid-state storage.
Unlike the CZ-27, the 15-inch CZ-15, which starts at $1,599, is a completely new model. It features a 15.6-inch full HD display, Core i7-4700MQ (up to Core i7 4930MX), up to 32GB DDR3 RAM, GeForce GTX 780M with 4GB VRAM, and your choice of optical drive. With up to two storage slots that can each accommodate up to a 1TB HDD or up to a 512GB SSD, there are a wide variety of storage options to choose from.
The new Valkyries are beautiful, powerful, and deliver the promise of lasting battery power for high-performance gaming notebooks, said Darren Su, Co-Founder and Vice President of iBUYPOWER in a press release. Battery life and performance are two critical focus areas for our customers, and the new generation of Valkries [sic] deliver on all fronts.
