Gone are the days when the only gaming laptops on the block are the ones that carry ultra-premium price tags. These days you can get gaming goodness on the go for relatively cheap, at least compared to what these systems used to cost. Such is underscored by CyberPowerPC's new Fangbook III HX6, a 15.6-inch laptop for gamers equipped with an Intel Core i7 4700MQ processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics, and starting price of $1,100.
Runs Windows 8.1 but boots straight into Steam’s Big Picture Mode
Syber, a division of California-based boutique system builder CyberPowerPC, has announced an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980-packing gaming PC that boots directly into Steam’s Big Picture Mode. The Syber Vapor Extreme, as the machine is called, is not an altogether new product, but the latest addition to an upcoming line of Windows 8.1-based gaming consoles the company unveiled at E3 2014 back in June.
CyberPowerPC today uncaged its new Raven X6 laptop for gamers. The Raven X6 sports a 15.6-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) display with a 1920x1080 resolution powered by an Intel Core i7 4710HQ mobile processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics. It all comes wrapped in an aggressive looking chassis with sleek angles and subtle aesthetic enhancements and accents.
Lightweight gaming laptop with an optical drive in tow
Boutique builder CyberPowerPC today announced the availability of its new Zeusbook Edge X6 notebook for gamers. In case you haven't noticed, gaming laptops are trending into thin and light territory these days, and the X6 is no exception -- it weighs just 4.75 pounds and measures 0.82 inches thick. That's a sliver more than Origin PC's EVO15-S, another lightweight notebook announced today, though the X6 brings an optical drive to party.
Configure a custom mini ITX system with a full size videocard
It's often said that big things come in small packages, and to prove it, CyberPowerPC is encouraging consumers to try out its new custom SFF Configurator. This allows customers to choose from what CyberPowerPC claims is a "carefully selected menu of high-end components" to piece together the ultimate mini-ITX gaming machine. And with the back-to-school season not too far off in the future, these space saving systems would fit nicely in a dorm room.
Three Benjamins gets you a pre-built rig for general computing chores
If you need a high-end gaming rig or a machine that can tear through content creation chores like a chainsaw through butter, move along, there's nothing to see here. However, if you need a general purpose system for scrolling through Facebook, firing off emails, typing up reports, and that sort of thing, keep reading. Boutique builder CyberPowerPC has teamed up with Newegg to offer the "Everyman Quad Core (EQ100)" PC for $300.
A PC/gaming console that boots directly into Steam Big Picture mode
Let's just come out and say it -- Valve dropped the ball with its Steam Machine initiative. Rather than let its hardware vendors run with their own brand Steam Machines that they've been developing for the past year, Valve decided to delay things until next year while it tweaks its Steam Controller, an integral component of any machine that might use the "Steam Machine" designation. That decision left OEMs and boutique system builders in an awkward place, but rather than let their hardware designs collect dust, we're seeing them reborn as Windows-based PC consoles that boot right into Steam Big Picture mode. The newest PC console to take this approach is CyberPowerPC's Syber system. Let's have a look.
We've seen our share of suitcases over the years, but they're usually packed full of clothes and other essentials for travel. What if your destination is a LAN party in the next town over? If that's where you're traveling, it's not a traditional suitcase you need, but perhaps one that's filled with gaming hardware. Such a thing exists -- CyberPowerPC's Fang Battlebox is now available in a variety of configuration options.
Boutique builder stretches beyond its gaming roots
CyberPowerPC is probably best known for its line of gaming systems comprised of off-the-shelf parts that you could otherwise buy yourself at places like Newegg and Amazon. However, don't cast the company as a one-trick pony. The boutique builder actually offers a variety of systems, and today CyberPowerPC introduced its new Power Mega Pro Series of workstation systems with professional graphics card options and choice of AMD or Intel inside.
"The Fang Mini is no toy, but a fully functional PC," CyberPowerPC says
Boutique system builder CyberPowerPC today stuck out its Fang Mini series of NUC-like PCs. These compact systems measure a scant 4.5 inches by 4.3 inches by 2.4 inches -- small enough to fit in your hand but with enough venom to strike down not only daily computing chores, but also a bit of 3D gaming and 4K video watching, CyberPowerPC says. And unlike the NUC, you can configure a Fang Mini PC with AMD inside.
