EXO to push limits of high-end gaming PCs

updated 01:45 pm EDT, Sat June 23, 2007

EXO gaming PC prototype

Former Alienware designer Garrett Bain is attempting to surpass his predecessors with the EXO, a gaming PC with extremely high standards. The case is by default composed of carbon fiber and polished aluminum, but virtually anything can be substituted, including steel or woods such as bamboo. RAID hard drive mounts are supplied, and a watercooling system comes stock, covering both the CPU and video card.

Raw performance remains the focus however, foremost because the computer uses a Core 2 Extreme processor, giving buyers the choice of going quad-core. Bain's company has further signed a deal with Nvidia, giving it access to the top one percent of 8000-series chipsets suitable for overclocking.

Each computer is assembled by a single technician, and covered by warranty for up to three years. A steel luggage case is supplied for transport. Shipments begin in eight weeks; prices are so high, however, that they are not being publicly disclosed. Lower-priced machines are promised in the future. [via Gizmodo]
