CyberPower’s Trinity gaming PC
Sure, you can accessorize a gaming PC with curved monitors and glowing lights to make it stand out, but what if you don’t think they’re eye-catching enough? Cyber-Power thinks it has an answer: it just started taking orders for the Trinity, an oddball gaming rig that divides the chassis into CPU, Performance (read: graphics) and Storage “blades.” According to the company, that three-part design is both pretty and functional. The unusual split prevents the components from heating each other, so a hot-running video card shouldn’t cook your processor.
The line starts out relatively modestly with the $955 Trinity 100, which carries an AMD A10 processor, 8GB of RAM, GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics and a storage combo that includes both a 120GB solid-state drive and a 1TB spinning drive. However, you can pony up for higher-end pre-configured models (up to an Intel Core i7 and a GeForce GTX 970), and you can order advanced upgrades like the Titan X card if you insist on the best. This definitely isn’t be the cheapest gaming rig you can buy, but there’s no question that it’ll get attention the next time your gaming pals stop by.
