CES 2007: VoodooPC to show off AMD's Quad FX with 18 ft. screens

Las Vegas (LV) - Being part of Hewlett-Pack hasn't made VoodooPC lose its flair for the dramatic. The enthusiast computer maker plans to unveil its eagerly awaited systems featuring AMD's new Quad FX processors at CES 2007 this week. Three of VoodooPC's high-powered Omen desktops will be running on Quad FX chips with enormous 18-foot displays. In fact, the three Omen systems will be networked together with a sit-down module for actual gameplay.

The Omen desktop is VoodooPC's flagship; last summer the computer maker introduced the Omen i:121 Extreme model, with features the Intel Core 2 Duo processor and ATI Radeon X1900 Crossfire graphics cards. VoodooPC has supported AMD's Quad FX since the technology was introduced last November, and the new Omen systems are a welcome development for gaming enthusiasts who want to see what VoodooPC can do with the newest platform from AMD. VoodooPC rival Alienware, which was acquired by Dell last year, has also thrown its support behind the Quad FX platform and is expected to unveil new systems using the processors.

In addition, VoodooPC will introduce a new gaming notebook at CES this week. No details have been released about the specifics of the new model, but VoodooPC says it will be one of the biggest and fastest notebooks on the market.
