Clevo, a large OEM/ODM exclusively producing laptop computers, has announced three new laptops powered by the recently released Coffee Lake-S (desktop) CPUs. The flagship P870TM supports up to a 95W CPU in the hex-core i7-8700K and either a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 as a single card or in SLI. The two other models, the P775TM, and P751TM, share the same options for processors, but for the most part different with GPU options. The P775TM gives users the choice of a GTX 1060, GTX 1070, or GTX 1080 in while the P751TM offers a GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 both in single card configurations.
The flagship P870TM replaces last year’s model, the P870KM, which was a pretty powerful desktop replacement laptop. The big change is going to be in CPU department with the incoming 8th generation Coffee Lake-S CPUs replacing the 7th generation Kaby Lake processors as options. Clevo posted benchmarks of Cinebench R15 claiming a 45.7% improvement over the i7-7700K on the last generation laptops; a direct result of the 50% increase in cores and threads in the i7-8700K. Video card options remain the same with a single or SLI GTX 1070 or GTX 1080s with support for 4K/FHD 17.3 displays using NVIDIA G-SYNC. Both the CPU and the GPU(s) are overclockable through the BIOS. Powering the laptop will be a 330W-660W power supply (based on GPU configuration).
Memory capacity is up to 64GB with speeds up to 3000MHz using its four DIMM slots. The network side is handled by an integrated Killer GbE ethernet and Killer Wifi capabilities. Another feature is the use of the Killer Double Shot Pro used allowing the use of both the wired and wireless networks at the same time for more useable bandwidth. Audio processing is tuned by Creative Sound Blaster X Pro-Gaming 360 and includes an ESS high-resolution headphone audio. Another feature focused on gaming is the fully backlit RGB LED keyboard supporting 44-key rollover and anti-ghosting. Overall a beefy set of specifications.
The P775TM and P751TM series offer similar specifications to the P870TM including the choice of processors but mainly differ with the available GPU options. To that end, the P775TM gives users a choice of a GTX 1060, GTX 1070, or a GTX in single GPU form. The P751TM gives users a choice of a GTx 1060 or a GTX 1070, only in single card configurations. The P775TM has an improved audio setup with a built-in subwoofer-speaker combination, with the P775TM and P751TM also tuned by Creative’s Sound Blaster X Pro-Gaming 360 as their big brother is.
Though Clevo will sell these outright, we can expect to see their resellers (Sager, Eurocom, Origin PC, Falcon Northwest, and dozens more) releasing their implementations in the coming weeks as well. Pricing was not listed and will vary depending on the hardware configuration selected.

Gunbuster - Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - linkI see the sky is still blue and clevo's are still chunky, plastic, and 10 years behind on any styling choices.
SharpEars - Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - linkYou forgot to mention that they also weigh 10 metric tons, give or take.
Meaker10 - Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - linkThis beast is not light no, but there are lighter options available :)
Freakie - Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - linkhttps://www.sagernotebook.com/Notebook-NP8952.html Ah yes, chunky and 10 years behind in style, and 10 metric tons!
Clevos aren't .73 inches thick and weighing 4.2lbs while packing a GTX 1070, an i7-7700HQ, 4k (matte!) screen, 32GB of RAM, M.2 AND SATA drive, and all while retaining a LAN port, 4 USB ports, 2 mDP and 1 HDMI ports, and an S/PDIF audio-out port... such an computer from Clevo is totally inconceivable!
MaidoMaido - Friday, October 13, 2017 - link...perhaps you mean "while packing hex-core i7-8700K desktop CPU"? Clevo does sell a number of slim form factor laptops with i7-7700HQ and even GTX 1070, but the P870/P850 is their desktop replacement line.
Manch - Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - linkAn X would get them sued so T-Box?
Flunk - Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - linkThey fulfill a need, powerful, properly cooled and durable. You are totally right about the styling, it looks almost exactly like a 10-year old ASUS gaming notebook.
bennyg - Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - linkI had an Asus that long ago, glossy fingerprint magnet, blue and white all over it, a dumb bottom case with a covered over fan intake and a dumber lid LED-lit logo that caused horrible bleed into the screen.
Clevos like this are for the adults. And at about $4k fully loaded, are the clear best in class over the $9k showpony P21X, the watercooled-but-no-faster $6k GX800, and the $4.5k still-last-century-1080p60 18 inch MSI.
Notmyusualid - Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - linkAnd those bezels...
So they can give you a monster like this - but can't give you an 18.4" screen?
I priced it up for fun, and international warranty is still +$200/year.
I'm still waiting for Alienware to make an 18.4" laptop again. I like their styling (well, its as good as expected for such beasts), and I cannot live without the global warranty.
I really do like the 780W PSU you can get with these Clevo's though... That should make for some fine tuning fun...
Gigaplex - Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - link18.4" screens aren't popular, so it's hard to find a supplier that will produce good ones with the right specs at a reasonable price.
