iBuypower kicked off its first day of CES with the unveiling of a brand new gaming PC dubbed the Revolt. The company is hoping the Revolt will serve as a breath of fresh air in a sea of boring black. As such, the chassis is quite different to the more traditional cases you'll see on the market, and iBuypower says its re-engineered the internal components for 'the most exciting PC gaming experience in existence.' Lofty claim!
"We didn't look to the industry for inspiration when we were developing Revolt," said Darren Su, Co-Founder and VP of iBUYPOWER. "What we looked for was the burning question of, what would we like to have on our own desks? We wanted to shake up the industry and make something beautiful. This is what Revolt is."
Powered by Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics and Intel's Core i-series of processors, the Revolt is liquid cooled with a full-size 140mm radiator and powered by a redesigned server-class power supply. The top of the line model is decked out with an i7 3770K Intel processor, Nvidia's GTX 680 graphics card and an SSD (though iBuypower didn't mention capacity). It's a Mini-ITX form factor PC and measures 16-inches tall, 4.6-inches wide, and 16.2-inches long. It's got Intel's Z77 chipset under the hood, two DDR3 DIMM Slots (Up to 16GB), one PCI Express 3.0 x16 Slot, one Mini-PCI Express Slot, 802.11b/g/n 1T1R Wireless LAN, Bluetooth v2.1 EDR, two USB 3.0 ports up front and four around the back, an SD card reader, two USB 2.0 ports in the back, two SATA3 6.0 Gb/s Connectors, two SATA2 3.0 Gb/s Connectors, one mSATA 3.0 Gb/s Connector, Support for RAID (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 10, Intel Rapid Storage and Intel Smart Response), NCQ, AHCI and Hot Plug Functions.
Pricing for this baby starts at $649 and goes right up to $1400. We're told it's already available for pre-order and will be shipping in February. Peep the pics below for an eyeful of this uniquely designed PC!
Maybe I'm used to the usual "luxury" price tag/increase for most boutique vendors, but I find that 1400 is quite good for an i7 + GTX680 + other goodies in that form factor.
Kudos to iBuyPower for it.
And yeah, hopefully the Steam boxes will fall around that price-tag.
Even more interesting...
I demanded benchmarks!
"the Revolt is liquid cooled with a full-size 140mm radiator and powered by a redesigned server-class power supply."
and 1800 starting price tag, yes.
to add on, assuming the AIO cooler was most likely an astek oem based cooler, the cooler will probably be similar to the nzxt kraken x40 give or take the difference between the stock fan.
Probably because it would be a really, really tight fit.
