The Raptor MultiPlex is a home theater and gaming hybrid system.

Boutique builder Velocity Micro is joining a growing number of companies looking to carve out a place for themselves in your living room. Velocity Micro's new Raptor MultiPlex is a fully customizable home theater and gaming hybrid system that's capable of streaming and gaming at a Full HD 1080 resolution. It also sports Cable Card functionality with DVR, Blu-ray playback, and other living room amenities.

"Since our early days, Velocity Micro’s focus has been largely in two categories – powerful enthusiast desktops and stunning home theater PCs," said Randy Copeland, President and CEO of Velocity Micro. "With the Raptor MultiPlex, we’ve essentially brought those two categories together to create something really awe-inspiring. It was a natural progression for us and we think our customers are going to love it."

The Raptor MultiPlex ships in a horizontal aluminum chassis that looks right at home in an AV environment. Pricing starts at $1,849 for an Asus P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt motherboard, Intel Core i5 3570K processor, Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro heatsink, 16GB of DDR3-2133 memory, Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 graphics card, 1TB hard drive (7200 RPM), 24X DVD burner, 52-in-1 media card reader, Bluetooth, Corsair 850W power supply, Windows 8 Professional 64-bit, and other odds and ends. It also comes standard with a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse combination and remote control.
