YouTube channel LinusTechTips has brought us some incredible gaming PC builds in the past, but the latest one takes the cake.
Last year, Linus and his team created the 2 Gaming Rigs, One Tower, a behemoth machine that could accommodate two gamers. It actually ran two separate instances of Windows 10.
For CES 2016, LinusTechTips partnered with Kingston, CASELABS, and EK Water Blocks to build a $30,000 behemoth of a machine that can accommodate seven gamers.
The components required to power this machine included two Intel Xeon E5-2697 v3 processors ($3,000 each), seven AMD R9 Nano graphics cards ($650 each), eight 1TB Kingston solid-state hard drives ($400 each), and eight sticks of Kingston 32GB DDR4 RAM ($300 each).
Also necessary: a CASELABS Mercury S8 case ($300) and a custom EK water block to cool the seven AMD graphics cards (unknown price). Add in the massive power supply, the high-resolution Acer Predator ultra-wide gaming monitors, and the sleeved cables, it’s no wonder this uber-computer cost as much as a car.
The build is completely impractical and nowhere near cost effective, but it’s incredibly cool nonetheless.
