A new crop of small form factor gaming PCs starting at $599
Don't have room for a hulking desktop tower but still want to get your gaming fix? CyberPowerPC may have a solution. The boutique system builder today rolled out eight pre-built Zeus Mini Small Form Factor (SSF) Series PCs ranging in price from $599 to $1,479. In an attempt to cater to all preferences, you'll find Intel and AMD systems rocking AMD and Nvidia graphics solutions.
Business users typically tote a briefcase filled with all the necessary gear, things like pads of paper, a tablet, documents, TPS reports, pencils, calendars, and whatever else. What if you fancy yourself a professional or diehard gamer who likes to game on the go? Well, you could invest in a notebook, or you could check out CyberPowerPC's Fang Battle Box, a mobile gaming system that acts as a briefcase for your hardware.
Sylish Steam Machine configurations are slated for the second half of 2014
Let's kick off the week with some good news, shall we? CyberPowerPC just flipped us a note announcing a pair of Steam Machine configurations that come complete with a Steam Controller and Steam OS, and the cost of entry starts at just $499, the same MSRP as Microsoft's Xbox One console. Pretty snazzy, right? Well, the bad news is that you'll have to wait until the second half of the 2014 before you can buy one - drats!
Boutique builder CyberPowerPC is teaming up with EVGA to offer an exclusive series of mini ITX based gaming rigs loaded with powerful hardware. Specifically, the system the two companies are pimping is the Hadron Hydro, a compact gaming machine that measures 6.6 inches wide by 13.7 inches high by 12.1 inches deep. It's only 1.7 inches taller than the Hadron Air, though this version comes with EVGA's liquid cooling kit.
It seems every PC maker is suddenly on a quest to build smaller sized gaming rigs, presumably because they envision these boxes taking residence in your living room where they'll host Steam games on your big screen TV. One of the newer candidates is CyberPowerPC's Hadron Air, a mini iTX based gaming system that measures all of 6.6 inches (W) by 12 inches (H) by 12.1 inches (D).
Whether you're a fan of 17.3-inch laptops or the more portable 15.6-inch form factor, CyberPowerPC's new Fangbook Evo HX6 gaming notebook series will oblige, though there's a caveat. Only Intel is offered inside the 15.6-inch models (Fangbook Evo HX6-100/200/300), whereas the 17.3-inch versions offer both Intel and AMD processor options. Regardless of which way you go, you can customize a respectable gaming PC without paying top dollar.
Well equipped gaming laptops measuring 17 inches are generally of the desktop replacement variety, which in part means they're big and bulky. CyberPowerPC has something else in mind. The boutique system builder today unveiled its new ZeusBook Ultimate Series, which the company claims are the thinnest and lightest 17-inch gaming notebooks in the world. Let's have a look.
System builder CyberPowerPC just announced its new Zeus Hercules gaming laptop with Haswell inside. You might think that such a name would be reserved for a high-powered notebook with dual GPUs, but in this instance, the Zeus Hercules leans on integrated graphics to push pixels around its 14-inch display. Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200, to be exact, which Intel claims offers up to twice the 3D performance of today's fastest mobile Intel HD Graphics solutions.
It seems the whole world is going crazy over Ultrabooks and ultrathins, but until Intel or AMD figure out a way to cram a pair of high-end GPUs into a form factor that's about the width of a pancake, there will still be a market for oversized gaming laptops built like a cinder block. Witness CyberPowerPC's Fang Taipan M2 gaming laptop (Clevo P375SM), a 17.3-inch machine that's capable of delivering a desktop-like computing experience.
Boutique builder CyberPowerPC today announced its Power Mega III Series, a family of Intel 4th generation Haswell or Xeon-based professional workstation PCs with Nvidia Quadro K Series or AMD FirePro graphics. The choices don't end there. CyberPowerPC is serving up its Power Mega III line in half a dozen starting configurations, each of which can be custom configured.
