World’s First Laptop with AMD’s 64 Core EPYC Processor and Desktop NVIDIA RTX 4080

The world of technology never ceases to amaze, sometimes in ridiculous ways, and in one such feat a Chinese laptop maker Xinjuneng has announced the world’s first-ever laptop with an entire 64 Core EPYC server chip stuffed into it. Complete with a desktop-grade NVIDIA RTX 4080 and an actual water cooling solution including an in-built water pump and a water tank, another world’s first. Suffice it to say, this thing is a computational powerhouse, although the practicality for general consumers is questionable. It seems tailored more towards people working with workstations and wanting a portable one.

The AMD chips in question are the EPYC 7713 and the EPYC 9554, both 64-core chips based on Zen 3 and Zen 4 architectures respectively, the latter having a TDP of up to 400W. The EPYC 7713 tested by them has a TDP of 225W and a Cinebench R23 score of 49,000. Packaging all these elements into one package understandably doesn’t come small, as this laptop sports a hefty dimension of 420mm x 325mm x 46mm, one that we definitely wouldn’t recommend placing upon your lap for any extended period of usage. But coming in at a thickness of 4.6 cm, it can still be carried in a 17-inch laptop bag, which is neat.

It boasts a 17.3 inch 16:9 ratio 2.5K 240 Hz display, with a 100% sRGB high color gamut and full viewing angle technology, upgradeable to 4K 120 Hz. There’s also a nifty little 3.5-inch CPU and GPU monitoring display to keep track of various parameters. It also features a host of unique connection options such as the IPMI 2.0 (Intelligent Platform Management Interface), dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet cards, TPM 2.0 standard interfaces, and customizable integration of other professional equipment cards.

According to the company, the whole laptop is a customized product, with different colors of the machine customizable as per preference with a variety of options (black, silver, gold, rose gold, blue, purple, red). There’s even a 10-watt woofer and full-color LEDs on both sides of the screen.

Coming back to the aforementioned cooling solution, it features what’s described as the split liquid cooling system, with a large copper radiator linked to heat pipes instead of traditional heat dissipation fins for enhanced cooling necessary for the components packed within and an 18W 36mm water pump with a 6-meter lift. It also mentions being low-noise, which would be interesting to see.

As for the NVIDIA RTX 4080 inside, the company mentions it being upgradeable to the upcoming RTX 4080 Super as well as being 15% faster than the RTX 4090 mobile version.

Named the Yunguai REV-9, and currently being crowdfunded with a goal of CNY 500000 (around $70,616), the company Xinjuneng plans to launch it on December 19th exclusively on Taobao, an online Chinese shopping platform. The pricing is currently unknown, but seeing as the AMD EPYC 9554 alone retails for around $4,795 on Amazon, expect it to be on the higher side. If you’re in the market for a fancy over-the-top workstation-grade laptop, you might want to keep an eye on this one!
