Its so hot it stings

WidowPC has announced its Socket AM2 powered Sting 917X2 notebook. The Sting 917X2 is powered by AMD’s Athlon 64 X2 and FX dual-core processors. Sting 917X2 systems can be ordered with up to 2GB of DDR2-667 memory and two hard drives.

Powering the graphics portion of the Sting 917X2 is an unnamed 512MB graphics card, though WidowPC claims the Sting 917X2 can be ordered with the fastest graphics cards available. Backing the 512MB graphics card is a large 17” wide screen display capable of 1920x1200. Widow PC hasn’t published weight numbers, though DailyTech expects it to be no less than 10lbs.  Considering the Sting is a desktop-replacement (DTR) rather than a thin and light laptop, we are willing to give a little slack on the weight specifications. 

The WidowPC Sting 917X2 also has Reverse Hyper Threading technology according to the product page, though this is likely a typo as RHT has been largely disproven as a component of the K8 architecture.

WidowPC has gotten a few headlines this year as the company also claimed to be the first manufacturer of SLI notebooks when in fact a other manufacturers began to rebadge the Clevo white books too.

"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
