Toshiba Qosmio X875 Hands-on: More Oomph, Less Ugly

Sometimes, less is more. Taking a step back from the garish designs of the past couple years, Toshiba’s new Qosmio X875 has a new look, featuring a new “Black Widow” aesthetic that is intended to appeal not just to gamers, but others looking for the most powerful notebook Toshiba has to offer. 

Like the pattern on the deadly spider itself, the Qosmio X875’s aluminum lid and deck have a diamond texture, and, similar to earlier Qosmios, a metallic red-and-black color scheme. The Qosmio logo on the lid will glow red, as well as the keyboard backlighting. 

The Qosmio X875 will be powered by a third-generation Intel Core processor, and up to 32GB of RAM–the notebook has 4 memory slots. Plus, the Qosmio will use Nvidia GeForce GTX 670M GPU, which is based on the graphics-maker’s new Kepler architecture, and has 3GB of GDDR5 memory. Two hard drive bays mean that consumers will be able to pack up to 2TB of storage in the Qosmio for all those games and movies. Keep reading for an image gallery and more specs available in the new Qosmio. Here’s a tease: the list includes a high-res display and some impactful audio perks.

You’ll be able to configure the Qosmio with either a 1600 x 900 TruBrite display, or a 1080p 3D-ready screen. The notebook will have quad harmon/kardon speakers, SRS Premium Sound, and a Blu-ray player. 

The Qosmio X857 will be available in the third quarter of 2012, and start at $1,299.

    Sadly GTX 670m isn’t of kepler architecture, neither is the 675.
