CyberPower Inc., a global manufacturer of custom gaming PCs, gaming laptops, and performance workstations unveiled its Zeus Hercules gaming notebook, which represents a new class of performance and portability for gaming notebooks. The Zeus Hercules incorporates some of the latest innovations from Intel, such as the hyperbaric cooling solution and Intel’s Iris Pro graphics 5200 that set a new standard for ultraportable gaming notebooks.

The Zeus Hercules is as mighty as its name with it 4th Gen Intel Core i7-4750HQ processor that can be automatically overclocked to 3.2GHz via Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 is integrated onto this CPU giving you the processing and graphics power to slay any gaming application and smash through any graphics-intensive program that mortals can throw at you. With Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200, users can expect up to a 2X 3D performance improvement over today’s fastest mobile Intel HD Graphics solutions. Intel Iris graphics brings next-generation mobile computing devices to life with a built-in, eye-popping visual experience with no extra graphics card required.

“The 4th Gen Intel Core processor with Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 is a tremendous product and a great example of the value added processor graphics available in Intel CPUs”, says Michelle Johnston-Holthaus, vice president of the PC Client Group and general manager of the Channel, Central Marketing and Operations at Intel Corporation “With these innovations from Intel and the unique customizability and support from CYBERPOWERPC, the Zeus Hercules will help redefine the standards of notebook PC gaming.”

Other advancements found in the Zeus Hercules are the Intel Hyperbaric cooling technology, a highly efficient thermal solution that will revolutionize notebook PC cooling.
