Maingear announced today that they upgraded the X-Cube small form factor PC. It's designed to fit into small spaces in living room entertainment centers or office space. The design lends itself well to anyone who wanted a PC that could double-down as a Steam Machine. That's not to mention that it's only a couple hundred more dollars than the Xbox One with the Kinect bundle, making it a very worthwhile alternative to home consoles.
Maingear's X-Cube has been upgraded to offer more options for storage and mechanical drives, enabling users to store up to three solid state drives and three mechanical drives. The all new chassis is also designed to give it a sleek new look that helps give the small-form PC some modern appeal for those who want a high-tech looking desktop that fits right in with the home consoles next to or underneath the TV.
Wallace Santos, CEO and Founder of Maingear commented in the press release, stating...
“The MAINGEAR X-CUBE packs the same high end performance of our full sized desktops into a sleek new compact design,” .... “X-CUBE's small form factor allows it to unobtrusively and quietly fit into even the tightest home and office settings, while providing the latest hardware and performance options without compromise.”
There's also a sexy new promo trailer for the X-Cube that you can check out below. It highlights the compact design that also sports the option for up to 32GB of RAM and SLI and Crossfire support for both AMD and Nvidia GPUs. Check it out below.
Not content to simply let the images and the videos and the news do all the talking, Laura Crone, Intel Vice President and General Manager, PC Client Group also chimed in about the new and improved X-Cube, stating...
“We are excited that MAINGEAR is now offering a refresh of their small form factor X-CUBE,” … “The new X-CUBE integrates the newly introduced Core i7 processor Extreme Edition 5960X, featuring 8 cores and 16 independent threads, into a design that offers nearly noiseless high performance in an elegant small form factor.”
I would love to see how well this system handles some of the more graphically demanding games out there.
Maingear's PR offered a temporary loaner unit for review but unfortunately I haven't had the time to dedicate to doing a thorough series of benchmark and performance tests of the hardware. But hopefully I can spare some free time to give it a look over... soon.
Nevertheless, sporting either twin AMD R9 290X or GeForce GTX 980 GPUs means that you'll have enough graphical power under your fingertips to play games at the glorious 4K resolution.
The X-Cube comes with a Corsair 1200i power supply and Gigabit Ethernet capabilities. Best of all? This thing is a heck of a lot cheaper than you might have thought. The X-Cube has a starting price of $799. That's very, very impressive.
Update: Alternatively, Maingear also has the X-Cube Titan Z Edition available as well for the holidays. I just received an e-mail update noting that the X-Cube Titan Z Edition comes jam-packed with the GeForce GTX Titan Z 12GB GDDR5 GPU from Nvidia for the moderate price of $1,499. That's actually pretty slick price for such a powerful GPU.
