Seeing the big picture just got easier on the eye --and shoulder. NP8978 dropped a size but kept its giant screen. Thinner bezels make this feat possible. Enjoy the finest entertainment in rich vibrant color at large scale on a huge 17.3" screen without the bulk of a 17.3" footprint. All the benefits of a big-game display in a smaller frame.
Among the slimmest in its class, NP8978 delivers heavy-weight performance and power in a compact, machined, aluminum body. Its trim, sleek, and understated form makes it easier than ever to bring its heavy-hitting power wherever you need it.
A generational leap in graphics capability, Real-Time Ray-Tracing (RTX) throws the doors wide open on complex and immersive new experiences that blur the line between the virtual and the real. Capable of rendering truly responsive and dynamic environments that capture the imagination. RTX traces light paths billions of times a second to create dramatically richer materials, lighting, shadows and reflections. Matched with NVIDIA's latest Turing architecture and AI-based shaders, get a combination of technologies unrivaled in the industry.
Unlock the powerhouse roaring at the heart of NP8978. Packed with the latest 9th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, it rips through millions of operations at lightning speed. Optane-ready for even quicker response and flawless performance under the heaviest conditions. It's the key component to a balanced and future-capable machine, whether for the latest VR applications, or delivering breakthrough gaming experiences to you, or to your audience.
Take advantage of faster clock speeds and bandwidth with next generation DDR4 memory. 64GB of Dual-Channel memory delivers top performance for the most demanding and complex high-end games and media.
Button free and secure, the world's leading in-glass bio-metric fingerprint sensor. Bezel-free and seamless, the sensor lights-up when needed to login. Secure your device, secure your data.
Broaden your horizons. Add up to 3 additional displays, and see the big picture, whether it's games, editing video, streaming to your fans, or all 3 at once.
Massive storage at maximum velocity. In the age of big data, volume matters as much as speed. RAID-capable, to shrink load times and outpace the needs of your expanding media library.
Always cool under pressure. NP8978 rapidly sheds heat and maintains optimal performance. More heat pipes drive heat away from the CPU and GPU faster, and a new cooling fan design uses more blades to dramatically increase the air flow volume.
It's lit. Customize the look and set the tone with a vibrant and rich color LED backlit keyboard. Independently adjust 3 zones or set all 3 to uniform color for dramatic effect.
Powerful and effective gameplay relies on powerful and accurate sound. Amplify an immersive experience with life-like audio, and use auditory cues to sense the hidden movements of your enemies. Voices and audio effects ring true and deliver unmatched clarity, range, and strength.
