CyberPower's latest gaming rig, known as the Trinity, is one of the most unusual systems we've seen, offering a design that wouldn't look out of place in a sci-fi blockbuster. The system features three "blades", placing the processor, graphics card and storage components in their own separate sections of the enclosure.
While most gaming PCs feature some sort of design flare, usually in the form of a customizable case lighting or a stylized grill, the Trinity's eccentricity extends beyond a mere few aesthetic frills, offering a drastically different setup to conventional PC towers.
The first segment of the high-end machine can be fitted with a mini ITX motherboard, allowing for compatibility with both Intel and AMD processors. There's room for up to 16 GB of DDR3 RAM and support for 120-mm (4.7-in) liquid cooling solutions. Meanwhile, the second blade has space for a high-output power supply, two HHDs, up to three SSDs and an optical drive.
The final segment is reserved for the GPU, with support for full-length cards, including the high-end AMD Radeon R9 series and Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X. There's also room for "several" extra SSDs in this segment of the case.
According to CyberPower, Trinity's unusual design allows for more effective cooling than conventional setups, with better airflow to individual components. The case itself is made of steel, and weighs in at 10 lb (4.5 kg). Users can either stand the system on the edges of two blades, or on just one of the hardware-packed outcrops. One of those options seems decidedly more sensible than the other.
If you're interested in getting your hands on the eye-catching machine, you'll be happy to learn that it's available for pre-order right now, with prices starting at a not-unreasonable US$955. The base configuration offers an AMD A10 processor, 8 GB RAM and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti GPU, as well as a combination HDD/SSD storage solution.
Of course, if you're interested in packing the tower full of high-end components, you can easily push the asking price over the $4,000 mark. Systems are expected to ship in early May.
