Crunching Power

The Venom BlackBook 17 has the power to do it all with the latest fourth generation high performance Intel Quad Core i7 processor, no BlackBook has ever been made with anything below a Quad Core Intel i7 processor and we have stayed true to our cause by ensuring all the speed is at your fingertips yet again. Everything is now quicker, faster and smoother to work or play with processor intensive applications or just everyday tasks will be smoother than ever.

Intelligently cool

All that performance doesn’t come with a price, our new and upgraded three fan intelligent twin cooling system has been built to work with the 980m graphics processor to ensure that regardless of what you are doing your system is always operating at its required cool temperature. The Intel i7 processor is cooled by a separately controlled intelligent fan that only runs when the processor is being utilised and has separate speed controls to ensure noise is reduced to a minimum. The Nvidia 980M GTX graphics card is cooled by a twin fan intelligent cooling system that also operates at different speeds independently to the processor, this ensures that the cooling system only runs at speeds and levels when needed. So if your number crunching, gaming, or just everyday computing, the fans will only we running when needed, the core temperature is where it is needed and noise levels are always at a minimum. Intelligent, efficient and silent cooling engineered to perform consistently when you need it.

Fastest… well everything

Performance is only a measure of unit if it can be delivered consistently and throughout. Nothing more is true to this than the PCIe based SSD drive used in the Venom BlackBook 17.

Low Latency, high speed memory is what makes the access speeds and clock speeds of this memory push the boundaries with all applications but also reduce stress on all other components such as the processor ensuring that homogenous low energy, reliable high performance system speeds are achieved – always.

Crafted with attitude

None of this would mean much if the system was not placed in anything other than a beautifully crafted anodized aluminium chassis, at only 2.98 cms in height it is not only the thinnest but also the  lightest Venom BlackBook 17 weighing in at 3.2kgs.
