Who said console gamers and PC gamers can’t play nice? Origin PC’s Big O, revealed here at CES 2020 today, combines the two in one chassis. Besides a high-end PC, the company will also jam in either a PlayStation 4 Pro or an Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. It’s on sale today starting at $2,499 on Origin’s website.
And that means some differences. Primarily, PC gamers may notice a modified Corsair Crystal Series 280X case, rather than one that Origin designed. The dual-chamber design houses the PC on one side and the console on the other.
Origin PC Big O Specs
|PC CPU||Up to AMD Ryzen 9 3900X or Intel Core i9-9900K CPU|
|PC GPU||Up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti|
|PC RAM||Up to 32GB DDR4 @ 3,200 MHz|
|PC Storage||M.2 PCIe SSD options|
|Console included||PlayStation 4 Pro or Xbox One S All-Digital|
|Other options||Elgato 4K60 Pro Capture Card, optional SSD to replace console hard drive, RGB, Laser etching|
Both the gaming PC and console portions are liquid cooled, which should result in near-silent operation.
The final price will depend on add-ons, including a built-in 4K60 Pro Capture Card from Elgato (another Corsair company), as well as aesthetic options like laser etching.
In theory, you could use the Big O to run both a console and a PC at the same time, as long as you have enough power going to each of them.
