Especially mobile, of course, this computer will not. His body will weigh about 6 kg, and in performance with 16 - or 17-inch screens, and even more. Two-system - a special design, the second monitor will leave because of the first thanks to a complicated scheme and slide fasteners.

Work gScreen Spacebook be running Windows 7, and his «heart» become CPU Intel Series Core 2 Duo. RAM can be up to 4 GB, subsystem video - based on the discrete card NVIDIA GF900M GT. HDD will be installed with speed 7200 rpm. And battery - 6 - or 9-tiled. Unlike notebooks this mobile PC will be equipped with more and DVD-drive.

For such an unusual laptop will have to pay a considerable sum, according to preliminary data, it will be quite round - 3000 U.S. Perhaps, gScreen have time to come up with Spacebook on the market by the end of the year.

According to the source, his colleague from IT168 obtained with an engineering sample of Clarkdale, having a clock frequency of 3.06 GHz, and conducted a small test.


As seen in the second illustration, the processor is equipped with 4 MB of cache memory, and third level supports Hyper-Threading.



For purposes of comparison was chosen processor Core 2 Duo E8400.




According to the results of tests Clarkdale clearly superior Core 2 Duo E8400, but the games have a performance almost unnoticeable.


Raise the frequency of the engineering sample was unable to above 4 GHz, even if the supply voltage.


Regarding power consumption, with the rate at Clarkdale 6-10 W lower than that of Core 2 Duo E8400.


When tested the processor from the engineering phase of the sample returns to the stage of a commercial product, it will fall to the level of Core i3, and will cost $ 143.
