Eurocom ads XTU and XMP support into its new Panther 2.0 super- notebook.

The new EUROCOM Panther 2.0 utilizes Intel XTU and XMP technology to increase the frequency of memory and processors for extreme performance.

Intel’s XTU (eXtreme Tuning Utility) is an application that allows for manual performance tuning, stress testing and system monitoring.

XMP (eXtreme Memory Profile) allows for manual tuning of frequency, latency and voltage parameters of memory. Intel XMP is a performance-packed expansion of the standard DDR3 memory specification.

The benefit of XTU and XMP to Eurocom customers is that it gives them the ability to customize their memory and processor to offer the best performance for their needs, whatever they may be. With predefined memory optimizations built into Intel XMP, overclocking on the Panther 2.0 is easy right away. A user no longer is required to manually customize their Eurocom notebook; XTU and XMP offer simplified processor and memory overclocking to optimize performance.

When running XTU a user can monitor a great deal of information regarding the underlying system. The interface is laid out to allow for easy adjustment of tune parameters. XTU also features an auto tuning capability which is very flexible, offering multiple levels for voltage settings.

The philosophy behind Eurocom mobile workstations is that they must be highly upgradeable, customizable and durable. XTU and XMP offer Eurocom customers the ability to customize their memory and processor to meet their highly demanding needs.
