Yoyotech is selling its XDNA Aurum 24K gamer PC for 7,979 English pounds, or $13,000. That may sound like nuts, but it’s not unusual for gamer-PC makers to create luxury models for super-rich gaming fans.
The British retailer’s machine includes an Intel i7 4960X processor, overclocked (run beyond recommended specifications) to 4.4 gigahertz. It has two Nvidia GTX Titan graphics cards, with a fully customizable case and components that match its black and gold color scheme.
Now, this kind of machine is going to run circles around a $400 Sony PlayStation 4 and the $500 Microsoft Xbox One. Those consoles got off to good starts in November, but clearly PC technology is racing ahead.
The tower-style machine has a 1,250 watt modular power supply, an Asus X79-Deluxe motherboard, a full custom watercooling system, 512GB of solid-state drive (SSD) memory, a 2TB Seagate hybrid hard drive, and 64GB of Vengeance Pro Gold 1600 megahertz DDR3 memory.
