HP announces 'high-end' games PC
PC stalwart Hewlett-Packard is aiming to take a slice of the multi-million pound games business after it unveiled an all-powerful PC targeted directly at gamers.

The HP Blackbird has been developed with the firm's recently acquired VoodooPC and comes in a black aluminium case that is filled with goodies.

Phil McKinney, vice president and chief technology officer of HP’s personal systems group, said: “We see the gaming market gaining significantly. We think there is significant opportunity in the market. There are a lot of Ferrari fans, but not many people can afford a Ferrari.”

The unit features a 1.1-kilowatt power supply and a liquid cooling system, and will contain both Intel and AMD processors complete with a top-of-the-range Nvidia or AMD graphics card (dependent on the model).

To make upgrading the machine easier, the PC also features a latch providing quick access to the insides of the system.

The Blackbird gaming PC will be priced in the price range from $2,500 (£1,235) to $7,100 (£3,508), depending on the configuration.

HP is yet to announce a release date for the system in the UK.
