Play Smoother, Play Harder, Play Longer
4K QFHD premium display featuring Sharp IGZO technology shed a new light on how end users view their favorite games and movies. Images have never been so crisp and clear. At twice the resolution of HD, end users get 3840×2160 pixels of breathtaking brilliance. ILLEGEAR S5 also provides other screen upgrade options such as 4K QFHD display with Samsung PLS technology, Full HD LG IPS display and 3K QHD+ display upon special request.
The 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4710HQ processor multitasks and manages power distribution effectively. In 25mm thin chassis, end users could also upgrade their RAM to the maximum of 32GB DDR3L to add even more multitasking power to the notebook and be free from lag completely.
S5 each contains three next-generation M.2 slots, 2 of them are for M.2 PCIe SSD and one for Intel 7265-AC M.2 WLAN + Bluetooth module. M.2, formerly known as the Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF), is a specification for internally mounted computer expansion cards and associated connectors. PCIe M.2 Solid State Drive delivers next-generation SSD performance with speeds exceeding that seen in the typical SATA 3 SSD range.
Today’s games continuously require a bigger and bigger amount of storage space. To meet the storage needs of growing media libraries and cutting-edge games, S5’s quad drives capability allows a maximum storage of 4TB (2x M.2 SSD, 2x SATA).
The heat generated by next-generation gaming and high-powered applications is decently tackled by S5’s triple-fan, triple-heatsink and triple-heatpiper thermal cooling design. Users are therefore allowed to play for as long as their mind and body can take.
