Not your typical all-in-one
Remember when all-in-one systems were considered basic PCs for general computing chores? For the most part, they still are, though don’t tell that to Maingear. The boutique builder just announced the Alpha 34, the first AIO to offer 8-core Intel Extreme Edition and 18-core Xeon processor options.
The battle-ready Alpha 34 is big in every way — size, performance, and price (if going the distance when configuring a model). Starting with the size, the crux of the Alpha 34 is its 34-inch curved WQHD (3840×1440) display.
That’s a lot of pixels to push around, and to get the job done, you can configure an Alpha 34 with a range of graphics cards including a GeForce GTX 980 Ti, Titan X, and Radeon R9 390X at the higher end. For workstation chores, Maingear offers several professional GPU options, up to an AMD FirePro W9100 or Nvidia Quadro M6000.
“The superb combination of Intel’s blazing fast processors with state of the art graphic cards and an astounding screen, gives Alpha 34 the muscle to handle any task while being the centerpiece in every room,” says Wallace Santos, CEO and Founder of Maingear. “Alpha 34 is a super stocked modern dream car with old fashioned muscle under the hood that is perfect for gaming, movie watching or even designing in Adobe’s Creative Suite.”
For lesser needs and tighter budgets, you can configure a toned down version of the Alpha 34, though price can still be prohibitive at $1,999. That gets you an Intel Core i3-6100 processor plopped into a Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming-5 motherboard, 8GB of Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 RAM, AMD Radeon R7 360X graphics card, 1TB HDD (7,200 RPM), 8X DVD burner, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
From there, the price and power scales upward with Intel Haswell-E and Xeon-based foundations. You could easily drop several grand and have the baddest AIO ever built.
The Maingear Alpha 34 is available to configure and order now.
