CyberPowerPC Crams Fang Gaming PC Into a Suitcase

By - Source: CyberPowerPC Press Release | B 15 comments

Who needs clothes when you have a suitcase full of awesome PC gaming hardware?

CyberPowerPC showed the Fang Battle Box system at CES 2014. Does this rig have anything to do with Nvidia's Battlebox certification? Yes, it does.

As reported several months ago, Nvidia launched its "Battlebox" certification program with a number of partners to provide systems that can handle 4K gaming using Nvidia-based GPUs. CyberPowerPC is one of the Battlebox partners.

According to the company, CyberPowerPC took all that qualifying hardware and crammed it into a suitcase form factor. So not only is this new Fang Battle Box a certified Battlebox, but easy to carry off to a LAN party or some other event.

The specs show that this rig sports an mITX Z87 motherboard packed with Intel's Core i7-4770K CPU clocked at 3.5 GHz, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 780 Ti GPU, and 16 GB of dual channel memory. The box supports up to GTX Titan/AMD 7990 sized video cards as well.

The Battle Box also includes a 120 GB SSD, a 1 TB hard drive, and 120 mm Cooler Master liquid cooling to keep the heat at bay. There's also an Ethernet port, Wireless AC and Bluetooth connectivity, a Corsair CX500 power supply, and a number of USB and output ports.

"The Battle Box is a mobile gaming system that features a one-of-a-kind design and is a full performance gaming rig that you can tote anywhere and everywhere," reads the company press release. "The compact gaming box features support for full size graphics cards including the AMD R9 series and Nvidia GTX 700 series."

The Fang Battle Box is scheduled for late Q1 / early Q2 release.

    "Nvidia's GeForce GTX 780 Ti GPU"

    can just one of these really drive 4k gaming at max settings?

    So, basically, this "suitcase" cannot handle 4k resolutions with just one GPU. It's pretty impressive though, but as some of the comments above says, a 600w psu would be fine, just in case. Also this computer can handle 1080/1440 resolutions at max settings, but for 4k i'd rather have 2 GPUs.

    subjectively speaking, it'd be better if the lid had a display attached, a 1080p laptop display perhaps. otherwise, the same innards inside bitfenix prodigy, cooled by corsair h100 seem better. or cm elite 110.

    Don't forget us that game at 2560 x 1600 ultra settings, but only a 500w psu? Seems unbalanced, needs at least a 750W.

    It looks very similar to the original Xbox.

    No 500W is enough. I was talking about PSU quality

    "The box supports up to GTX Titan/AMD 7990 sized video cards as well."Oh boy! Did I hear Titan in a custom built PC again? Why the hell is every pre--built PC builder recommending Titan so much over the 780 Ti?

    500W PSU is more than enough. You don't need a damn huge power supply for everything!!

    My guess is because TITAN simply sounds cooler. Its name has a greater impact when advertising. Remember that this kind of system is never going to be targeted at people who build their pcs or know about the latest and greatest GPUs

    Sometimes thought it would be interesting if Pelican Case came out with some kind of semi-portable military spec PC enclosure. They make a fairly cool toolbox and their plastics and quality are excellent.
