You'll get to enjoy the very latest DDR5 memory technology, PCIe 5.0 connectivity, and NVIDIA's flagship Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card with 24GB of GDDR6X memory.
The company will be offering up to 64GB of dual-channel DDR5-4000 memory, an AIO liquid cooler, plenty of RGB lighting, and impressive cooling chops that will keep your Alder Lake CPU and Ampere GPU as cool as possible inside of the Acer Predator Orion 7000 series desktop gaming PC.
Lenovo has just announced the very first Intel Alder Lake PC, which features Intel's upcoming 12th Gen "Alder Lake" CPU, DDR5 RAM, and PCIe 5.0 technology -- all ready for now, and the future of gaming.
Lenovo's new Legion 9000K 2022 PC features an Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake CPU of some sort, with what should be an Intel Z690-based motherboard. The Intel Z690 chipset will include DDR5 memory support and PCIe 5.0 support, with Lenovo listing an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card.
The new gaming PC from Lenovo will be available starting October 29, with VideoCardz pointing out that this should be when pre-orders go live. Intel will have its new Alder Lake CPUs up for pre-order on October 29 with the new CPUs launching on November 4... we can expect Lenovo's new Legion 9000K 2022 PC to begin shipping then.
COLORFUL has just unveiled its new onebot M24A1 AIO PC, which is a new all-in-one desktop PC that arrives in a 23.8-inch display.
The new COLORFUL onebot M24A1 AIO PC features an 11th Gen Intel Core CPU, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. There's a 23.8-inch IPS display with a native 1920 x 1080 resolution, a built-in 2.0-megapixel 720p webcam and dual 3W speakers. It makes for the perfect work-from-home system.

GIGABYTE has just unveiled a beast new workstation that packs AMD's core-packed Ryzen Threadripper 3995WX processor, which offers 64 cores and 128 threads of Zen 3 processing power.
The new GIGABYTE W771-Z00 workstation packs AMD's flagship Ryzen Threadripper 3995WX processor, offering 64 cores and 128 threads, as well as support for 8-channel DDR4 RAM which supports up to 2TB of system memory for high-end workstation use.
You can't have 64 cores and 128 threads of CPU power and 2TB of RAM if you're not going to have a ballistic amount of GPUs inside, with GIGABYTE's new W771-Z00 workstation capable of having 4 x dual-slot GPUs with PCIe 4.0 x16 lanes ready for all those GPUs.
Intel's next-gen NUC is going to be an even bigger pocket rocket of portable PC performance, with the next-gen Intel NUC 12 Enthusiast teased with some damn good technology inside.
The new NUC 11 Enthusiast would be offered in multiple configurations, starting with an Intel Core i5 + 8GB GPU, Core i5 + 12GB GPU, and Core i7 + 16GB GPU. The GPUs in question are based on the Intel Xe-HPG DG2 family of discrete graphics cards, which are Intel's upcoming graphics cards for gamers.
Intel's current flock of NUC 11 Extreme PCs rock Tiger Lake CPUs and have the size inside for a full-sized graphics card, but the new Intel NUC 12 Extreme... well now, the Xe-HPG GPU with varying VRAM amounts and DisplayPort 2.0 which is capable of 4K 240Hz, 8K 120Hz, and 16K 60Hz? Hell yeah.
Dell's brand new Aurora R10 and R12 desktop gaming PCs can't be sold to 59 million+ Americans... the reason? New power regulations in multiple US states prohibits the sale of these PCs -- meaning Dell can't ship them to you.
The reason why Dell can't ship these new Alienware Aurora R10/R12 desktop PCs is "due to power consumption regulations". California's new Energy Consumption Tier 2 began on July 1, 2021 and is much tighter on power regulations... almost too strong.
This means you can't buy a new Alienware Aurora R10/R12 desktop PC if you're in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, or Washington. Across those US states, are 59 million+ Americans that are barred from gaming on a new high-end Alienware PC.
Aftershock PC has just opened up a gigantic new HQ in Melbourne, Australia -- with the Singaporean brand expanding its operations Down Under in a big way... one would say, causing aftershocks in the custom PC making business in Australia.
In a new post on their official Facebook page, Aftershock PC said that their new 40,000 sqft facility will allow them to make some of the most EPIC PCs on Earth. I personally visited the Aftershock PC offices in Melbourne, Australia a few years ago but this new HQ absolutely blows their previous HQ out of the water.
Aftershock PC explains: "Located in the heart of Melbourne, the new 40,000 sqft facility will allow us to produce some of the most EPIC PCs on the planet. As a proud Singaporean company, its been just over 3 years since we've expanded regionally, and our mission to bring our local Singaporean brand and flavor of custom PC building with quality service beyond our shores has been a blast".
Intel started its NUC range out with a bang and has continued to impress over the years, but AMD has been missing out on that Mini-PC world... until now.
AMD's new Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU is the heart and soul of these next-gen Mini-PC systems from Morefine Focus and Minisforum computer manufacturers, as well as more -- with Zen 3-powered NUC-like PCs. The new MoreFine S500+ MiniPC is powered by the Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, offering 8 cores and 16 threads at up to 4.6GHz.
There's room for 2 x M.2 2280 NVMe SSDs and a single 2.5-inch SSD or HDD, up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM is supported, while there's dual RJ45 connectors (one of them is 1GbE and one of them is 2.5GbE). Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity is on offer, with DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 for display output.
Minisforum is teasing its new ultra-compact gaming PC with an all-AMD CPU+GPU combo, and an interesting open-air design that I'm kinda liking the vibe of to be honest. Check it out:
The new Minisforum GameMini is powered by an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor, a GIGABYTE B550 AORUS PRO AX Mini-ITX motherboard, up to 32GB of DDR4-3200 RAM from Kingston and its HyperX family of memory, a 1TB M.2 SSD and an AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card.
It's all installed into a really dope open-air case with a full-sized GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6700 XT GAMING OC graphics card on the other side. The CPU is cooled by a gigantic air cooler, while the entire system is powered by a SilverStone SX650-G PSU.
GIGABYTE has just unveiled some very Tesla-inspired AORUS gaming PCs with the introduction of the new pre-built AORUS Model X and AORUS Model S.
The new AORUS Model X and Model S gaming PCs can be tweaked with either an Intel Core CPU or AMD Ryzen CPU, with the Intel model packing the new Rocket Lake-S flagship Core i9-11900K processor. GIGABYTE is using the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor in the AMD-tweaked AORUS Model X gaming PC.
Both of the systems are powered by NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, 16GB of DDR4-4400 memory (for Intel) while the AMD-powered AORUS Model X had DDR4-3600 memory. There's a 1TB PCIe 4.0 storage options, as well as a larger 2TB PCIe 3.0 SSD.
