CyberPowerPC releases some new LAN gaming systems.
CyberPowerPC is showing off its new LAN III series gaming PCs that come in four versions. The LAN III Series gaming PCs from CyberPowerPC are, as the name indicates, designed for LAN parties, and thus come in small form factor enclosures. The three enclosures used are the Fractal Design NODE 304, the BitFenix Prodigy mini-ITX case, and the Cooler Master HAF XB case.
The least expensive model, the LAN III Mini-A, comes in the Fractal Design case. It contains an AMD A4-5300 APU, which has a HD7480D graphics part on-die. There are 4 GB of memory, and a 500 GB hard drive controlled by an A75 motherboard from ASRock.
The second tier model, the LAN III Mini-I, has an Intel Core i7 3770K CPU, 4 GB of memory, an ASRock B75 motherboard, and a 500 GB hard drive. It is housed by a BitFenix Prodigy enclosure. Oddly enough, the two cheapest stock models have no discrete graphics cards.
Moving on to the more powerful gaming machines, the second most expensive model is the LAN III Xtreme, which also comes in a BitFenix Prodigy case. It carries an Intel Core i5 3570K CPU, paired up with 8 GB of 1,600 MHz DDR3, Nvidia's GTX 650 graphics card, a Gigabyte Z11 motherboard and a 1 TB hard drive. This one is also the first that comes with a DVD drive.
The most expensive model, the LAN III Commander, comes in a Cooler Master HAF XB enclosure. It carries an Intel Core i7 3820 CPU, 8 GB of 1,600 MHz DDR3 memory, a GTX 670 2 GB graphics card, and is run by an X79 motherboard from ASRock. Storage is achieved with a 128 GB Sandisk SSD and a 1 TB hard drive. It also carries an optical drive.
Pricing is set at an MSRP of $439, $705, $795, and $1,395 for the LAN III Mini-A, LAN III Mini-I, LAN III Xtreme, and LAN III Commander, respectively.
