Origin PC Omni stuffs a lot of gaming power into a big-screen all-in-one
Well I have doubts about the viability of an all in one as a gaming system.
RGPC's Omni custom build with it's 34 inch curved display does deliver a great gaming experience for wide field and view play.
The display is pretty much like every other 34 inch wide quad HD curve monitor I've seen lately.
It's got a decent 100% SRGB gammet that looks good as long as you're viewing it dead on without tilting it.
The max display is great from a reflectivity perspective, but it suffers from color and contrast shifts when viewing from even a little off angle.
The system performs as fast as you'd expect, given it's components.
In our case that includes an NVIDIA TITAN X card and a 4.2 gigahertz CPU.
And it was only occasionally outpaced by others that we tested, that incorporate the Intel extreme CPUs with more cores.
I've got few complaints about the game play.
We did experience some crashes from overheating when driving it hard though.
And the system's almost fully upgradeable.
It fits as much gear as a standard desktop with only a single graphics card.
You can put in a full size, current generation Nvidia or AMD card, up to 32 Gb of memory, two drives of either the spinning or solid state variety and a sound card.
But the all in one layout is very good Motherboard and graphics cards connectors come out the bottom.
While it's crammed with useful ports that are kinda hard to get to and I'm talking about frequently used ones like USB.
You gotta weigh down the system.
There are a few connectors conveniently located in the back as well as an SD card slot.
But all of the powerful ones like the 10 gigabyte per second USB connectors are the ones that earmark for VR Or underneath.
For a lot more details about my experiences with this novel system, you'll have to read my review on CNET.
