The Infinite X makes use of the eightth Era Intel Core i7-8700Ok processor paired with its NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 Ti for high-end efficiency. Out the field, the unit comes with 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2400 which is expandable to 64GB by its 4 DDR4 UDIMM slots. The storage configuration comes within the type of 2x M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs for a complete of 512GB. It additionally features a 2TB three.5-inch SATA HDD. In complete, customers have room for 2 three.5-inch HDD, one 2.5-inch HDD/SSD, and two M.2 SSD. Wi-fi duties are dealt with by the identical Intel AC3168 machine providing 802.11b/g/n/ac together with Bluetooth four.2. Wired LAN performance is thru an Intel I219-V Gigabit Ethernet. On the USB facet of issues, the Infinite X provides customers a complete of 9 ports. On the entrance, there’s one in all every, USB three.1 (5 Gbps) Kind-C, USB three.zero, and USB 2.zero. The again has 4 extra USB three.zero ports and two USB 2.zero ports. Show outputs encompass HDMI and DisplayPort on the again.

System RAM is within the type of 2x16GB (32GB complete) of DDR4 2666 SO-DIMMs expandable to 64GB. Storage choices embody a 512GB RAID zero setup utilizing M.2 PCIe SSDs, whereas mass storage is a 3TB SSD. It additionally has one other 512GB PCIe M.2 SSDs in RAID0 through PCIe extension Gaming storage card to place your video games on ultra-fast storage. Networking, each wired and wi-fi is dealt with by Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet and Killer Wi-fi-AC 1435 respectively. There’s a slew of USB ports with USB three.1 (10 Gbps) Kind-A and Kind-C ports as effectively a USB three.zero slot on the entrance, whereas on the again is one other six USB three.zero ports and two USB 2.zero ports.
Neither pricing nor availability was talked about with any of those new models, however we do count on this to price a bit extra contemplating it’s utilizing a greater video card and upgraded CPU.
