Maximum PC's Online Managing Editor and ace reporter Jimmy Thang is currently scurrying around the show floor at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and one of his stops was to see CyberPower's curious looking Fang Trinity PC. At a glance, it looks like the result of a Tie Fighter having unprotected relations with a desktop PC, though it also reminds us a bit of Razer's Project Christine. Unlike that system, however, this is a real product.
Has the "Gaming Supercomputer" era officially begun?
CyberPower PC is certainly excited about the release of Nvidia's GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, as are many other boutique system builders. Not only is Titan a, well, titan in the GPU space, it's also based on architecture that's been used in several supercomputers. This fact has led CyberPower to declare this the "Gaming Supercomputer" era, which for CyberPower actually begins on February 21, which is when customers will be able to configure Titan in new builds.
The FangBook X7 won't leave a lethal bite in your wallet (unless you want it to).
Gaming notebooks are infinitely more affordable than they were even just five years ago, and if you don't believe it, just have a look at CyberPowerPC's new FangBook X7 Series. These 17.3-inch (1920x1080) gaming laptops start at $1,299 and pack at least an Intel Core i7 3630QM quad-core CPU (you can configure a FangBook X7 with up to an Intel Core i7 3940XM Extreme Edition processor) and 8GB of DDR3-1333 RAM.
A new 17-inch FangBook gaming laptop is one of three products CyberPower PC has on tap for CES.
It's always a welcome sight to spy boutique system builders hanging around the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Yes, we fully expect a full slate of tablets and gadgets to debut this week, but as far as CyberPower PC is concerned, now is the perfect time to unveil a trio of enthusiast products, including a new notebook, small factor factor (SFF) gaming PC, and a redesigned liquid cooling system (LCS).
New Zeus Touch all-in-one systems from CyberPower PC start at $899.
Here's a riddle for you: What is Zeus without his Thunderbolt? If you guessed an "all-in-one (AIO) PC," pat yourself on the back, and then thank a teacher, without which you may not have been able to read the headline. CyberPower PC's Zeus Touch line is the latest in an influx of touch-capable AIO systems built around Windows 8, though unlike some of the others, Zeus is "fully expandable," CyberPower PC says.
Boutique system vendor CyberPower PC is out to prove that Zeus doesn't need a Thunderbolt to whip up a storm (but we'll gladly take USB 3.0, thank you very much). Zeus is the name of CyberPower PC's newest gaming desktop line with half a dozen models to choose from, including the Zeus Thunder 1000, 2000, 3000, and MAX, all of which feature Intel processors, and the Zeus Lightning 1000 and 2000 models built around AMD's FX platform.
