EVGA confirmed to TweakTown that they're about to enter the gaming laptop market. The company didn't share a lot of details but said it would be a thin 17" gaming laptop with very high-end hardware, designed 100% by EVGA from the ground up. The estimate release date is the end of the year or early 2016.

We don't know which chip the laptop will use but perhaps it will be the new K-series mobile CPU from Intel?
EVGA is traditionally known for their aftermarket video cards and motherboards, and they have a large following of enthusiasts and gamers who want the best hardware in their computers. I contacted our EVGA representative to get more information or even confirmation. According to EVGA marketing, "[EVGA] are working on a new 17-inch thin gaming notebook with very high-end hardware. Plan to launch late this year/early next. 100% EVGA design from the ground up".

EVGA is known for their NVIDIA-based GPUs and Intel-based motherboards, so we should expect an Intel CPU and the possibility of a discrete mobile GPU from NVIDIA. We could even go as far as to expect Intel's first K-SKU mobile CPU in EVGA's gaming notebook, but at this time there is no solid confirmation of what hardware will be used in their gaming notebook.
