Walmart is dipping its foot into the gaming PC business. The international retail giant recently partnered with Esports Arena to create its Overpowered (OP) line of pre-built gaming desktops and laptops. The initial lineup is comprised of a desktop with unique specifications at different price points and two laptops.
OP Gaming Desktop Specs
Credit: WalmartThe OP Gaming Desktop is available in three forms: DTW1, DTW2 and DTW3. The hardware is housed inside a sleek, black case with glass front and side panels. Four fans provide the case with active cooling; although, at the moment it's unclear whether they come with normal LED or RGB lighting.
The OP Gaming Desktop DTW1 is the entry model and features an Intel Core i7-8700 hexa-core processor, 16GB of memory and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. Storage consists of a 256GB SSD and 2TB hard drive. The DTW1 is priced at $1,399.
The DTW2 model also employs the Intel Core i7-8700 processor but is accompanied by 32GB of memory and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. There's a 512GB SSD for primary storage and a 2TB hard drive for secondary storage. This model carries a $1,899 price tag.
The DTW3 is the flagship model and comes with similar specs to the DTW2 but with a faster Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, which bumps the price up to $2,099.
Regardless of the model, OP Gaming Desktop runs on Windows 10.
Walmart backs up its gaming desktops with a one-year warranty but also offers extended coverage up to three years for an extra $58 and up to four years for $77. All three models are available for pre-order and are eligible for free two-day shipping.
