Introducing the NOMAD 17


Desktop Performance at your Fingertips

With the full power of desktop components along with CPU and GPU overclocking options, the NOMAD will dominate any task or game with ease. The NOMAD features the full power of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 desktop graphics and the latest unlocked 8th Gen Intel® i7 desktop processors. That means it features the same performance, features, and overclocking you’ve come to expect from its desktop counterpart.

Featuring NVIDIA® G-SYNC

Experience silky smooth 4K or 1080p gameplay that only G-SYNC can offer. G-SYNC’s revolutionary smoothness is achieved by synchronizing display refresh rates to the GPU in your GeForce GTX-powered desktop or notebook, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag.

Express Yourself

Make your NOMAD one of a kind with our custom luxury automotive paint finish. Applied in-house by our master painter with over 30 years of experience painting the world’s finest super cars, our auto-quality paint is the same that goes onto the likes of Porsche and BMW.
