There are gaming PCs...and then there's the CyberPower Fang Trinity. While CES 2015 has proved that the Steam Machine revolution is still simply treading water, CyberPower's mad X-Wing-like gaming PC has been turning heads. The days of the black-box gaming tower are numbered.
Considering the unique casing, the Fang Trinity doesn't scrimp on powerful internals. And, most surprisingly, its components are easily-upgradable, off-the-shelf parts: the build on show at CES 2015 had a liquid-cooled 4GHz Intel Core i7 4790k processor, full-size Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, Gigabyte Z97 Mini-ITX motherboard and not one but five SSD drives, as well as a 3.5-inch hard drive bay.
The three "pods" of the chassis are each designed to contain a set of related components, so you end up with the motherboard, CPU and cooler in one section, GPU and SSDs in another and the PSU in the last prong.
It's not, however, remotely portable. At 3.5kg per pod cover, you'll need a removal team to get it from one room to another. Still, you'll probably be too mesmerised by its design to ever think about moving it.
Though only a prototype was on show at CES, CyberPower expects to have the Fang Trinity on sale within the next three months. Pricing will be dictated by a buyer's selected components. [CyberPower via PC World]
