CyberPower debuted its new Trinity gaming PC at CES, and it was one of the most unique-looking computers at the show.
The Trinity gaming PC is now available for configuration and for preorder, starting at $995 for a base configuration.
"Trinity is anything but ordinary. Split into three "blades," the Trinity is designed to provide maximum cooling capacity to the major heat-generating components in the system individually. The tri-point design of the Trinity allows for powerful configurations in this striking chassis," says CyberPower on its website.
Trinity is very unique in its design. Instead of housing the components of the computer inside a simple box, they are housed in three "blades." This maximizes cooling, essentially meaning that the fans don't have to work as hard in order to keep the computer cool. Not only that, but each blade represents a different type of component. One of the blades is the "performance blade" and includes the graphics card. Users can also mount some extra storage into the performance blade. The next blade is the "CPU blade," which includes the processor. Last but not least is the "storage blade," which is where users can find the RAM and memory of the computer.
The base configuration includes an AMD A10-7700K CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card, 8 GB DDR3-1600 RAM, MSI A88XI AC motherboard, 120 GB + 1 TB SSD/HDD combo and an 8X DVD writer. It comes running Windows 8.1. This configuration comes at $995.
The next model up is called the Trinity 200, and it comes with a Core i5 4690K CPU, 16 GB DDR3-1600 RAM, GeForce GTX 960 GPU, Gigabyte Z97N WiFi mobo and a 240 GB SSD + 2 TB HDD. This configuration comes at $1,339.
Last but not least is the Trinity Extreme, which brings the processor to an Intel Core i7 5820K, 16 GB DDR4-2400 RAM, GeForce GTX 970 graphics card, ASRock X99E-ITX/AC motherboard and 240 GB SSD + 2 TB HDD. The most expensive configuration of the computer, it comes at $1,795.
Companies have increasingly been experimenting with desktop computer designs over the last few years. Even Apple has jumped on the bandwagon, redesigning the Mac Pro to be a cylinder rather than rectangular. It is also much smaller and is much sleeker, however, it has garnered the nickname of "the trash can," because of the way it looks.
Of course, the new design isn't all about performance. It certainly looks pretty cool and is sure to make heads turn while sitting atop the user's desk.
