CyberPowerPC Crams Fang Gaming PC Into a Suitcase

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
