View Full Version : Computex - Asus launch hardcore gaming PC

06-02-2010, 04:15 AM
Asus at a press conference at Computex announced a powerful gaming desktop will be released real soon. The gaming PC has a Core i7 980X and two Radeon HD 5870 cards on board setup in CorssfireX.

The new desktop PC comes from the Republic of Gamers team and will be named CG8490. With this game PC Asus aims at hardcore gamers

The desktop is also equipped with the fastest processor Intel has available for the consumer market, the Intel Core i7 980X. The CPU will be overclocked by 20 percent (thus 4 GHz) and will receive a luxurious 12GB DDR3 memory.
The two Radeon HD 5870's provide the necessary graphics power but will be pre-overclocked as well (no speed available).

Further specifications of the components and their respective clock frequencies are not known, but we expect it will make use of a Rampage Extreme III motherboard and likely the Matrix HD 5870 series. It's probably for the best that we do not know the pricing just yet :)
