Like most gaming laptops on the market, Eurocom's Tornado F5 has been upgraded to support Intel's new seventh-generation Kaby Lake CPUs, rocking up to 3.6GHz Intel i7-770K processors. Tornado F5 pairs Kaby Lake CPUs with NVIDIA's latest 16nm Pascal-based GeForce GTX 10-series video cards including the potent GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB GDDR5X VRAM, the GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB GDDR5 VRAM, and the GeForce GTX 1060 video card with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM.

 

What sets the Tornado F5 apart from other builds is that Eurocom has put emphasis on user upgradeability, making it easy for everyday consumers to replace or upgrade the laptop's internal hardware.

 

Other specs of Eurocom's high-end gaming laptop include up to 64GB of G.Skill TridentZ DDR4-3200 RAM, up to three storage drives in RAID 0 or RAID 1 including SSHDs, HDDs, and SSDs as well as two M.2 PCIe options. Inputs include three USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C port, one DisplaPort 1.2 port, and one HDMI 2.0 port. The laptop's 15-inch Full-HD display can also be upgraded to support 4K resolution.

 

Interestingly enough, the Tornado F5 doesn't come pre-installed with Windows 64-bit; you have to add $141 for a Windows 10 Home 64-bit license.

 

The Tornado F5 starts at $1,666 for the base model, and its hardware can be configured in a myriad of different ways to suit the needs of consumers and gamers.
