Lenovo previews IdeaCentre K330 desktop tower

Lenovo had one extra PC in store beyond its new notebooks today with a new IdeaCentre desktop targeted at gamers and other high-end users. The K330 will use up to quad Core i7 processors, likely based on Intel's Sandy Bridge, and will use the matching Turbo Boost 2.0 to toggle between speed grades on the fly. A switch will let users range from a throttled-down 'green' mode for keeping the system quiet through to a regular mode (blue) and full speed (red).

The design will also be more upscale than usual for Lenovo, using a metallic mid-tower case with side vents. At its peak, the system will have extra performance options that can bring it up to 16GB of RAM from the factory and put two hard drives in a RAID 0 stripe for faster load times. As much as 4TB of disk space will be an option.

Some details still aren't known, including the base specifications, but Lenovo promises DirectX 11-capable graphics and media options such as a Blu-ray drive or a TV tuner. The new IdeaCentre won't be available until sometime in 2011, but Lenovo has said prices will start low at $699.
