It`s here!

Being slightly bigger than our previous flagship series (CQ60G), the new king
- the CQ70G series - delivers an even greater amount of processing horse-power.
With its powerful 6-core Intel Core i7-8700T CPU and full-sized NVidia GTX1060 GPU,
this platform can handle the most demanding of workloads in an impressively
discrete form factor (<6.6 litres).

As with all our PCs, numerous built-in options are available, including GPS, Wi-Fi, video capture and
CAN-bus. The fanless nature of the CQ70 series makes it suitable for extremely dusty environments,
and the device's ruggedness is demonstrated by multiple MIL-STD-810G tests. The CQ70 series is
E-mark certified making it fully approved for in-vehicle use. A 2-year warranty is standard, extendable
to 3 or 5 years.
