Detailed Overview

Why NVIDIA GeForce?

The graphics card is the most important component in a gaming laptop. The Scan 3XS LG17 Carbon Extreme includes NVIDIA's most powerful laptop GPU the GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, ensuring smooth frame rates in every game at high detail settings. The GTX 980 is the only laptop GPU to be GeForce GTX VR Ready certified, ensuring a great experience when playing games on a VR headset such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

Choosing the Right CPU

A fast CPU ensures a smooth and responsive experience whether you're playing a game, watching videos or browsing the web. The Scan 3XS LG17 Carbon Extreme includes a powerful Intel Core i7 6700K which has four cores running at 4GHz and Turbo Boosts up to 4.2GHz so delivers great performance when you need it.

The Right Memory

Fast and reliable system memory is a crucial part of any laptop. The Scan 3XS LG17 Carbon Extreme gaming laptops include 16GB of Corsair DDR4. We recommend 16GB of RAM for a high-end gaming laptop.

Lightning Fast Storage

Nobody likes waiting, so the Scan 3XS LG17 Carbon Extreme includes a PCI-E NVME SSD for your games and an HDD for your music and photos. SSDs use sold-state memory, so boot into Windows, load games and applications in a fraction of the time of a mechanical HDD.

Genuine Windows

All 3XS gaming laptops include genuine Windows 10 64-bit, the most modern and up to date operating system for a gaming laptop.
