Origin PC's Millennium desktop is built for 4K gaming

Desktops
[MUSIC] Here's a chance to take a look at the very latest in CPU and GPU hardware. I'm Dan Ackerman. This is the Origin PC Mellennium. Now this is a build to order gaming desktop PC that the company named Origin PC makes. And you can configure this in a lot of different ways, starting from. About $1,500 up to $6,000 and north. And the reason we're primarily interested in looking at this particular model is because it's our first chance to see a couple of very important new pieces of hardware. One is Intel's Haswell-E processor, that's a super high end Core i7 processor that's really intended for these gaming systems, and that just was announced back in the end of August. And also, Nvidia's latest desktop graphics card. We've got the highest in one in here, that's the Nvidia. GeForce GTX 980. And we have, not just one, not two, we have three of these cards all strung together. So if you put that together with the new Intel X99 Chipset, you pretty got every leading edge gaming PC piece of hardware in one big buy. so, what would you do with a very high end gaming desktop like this? There's only so far you can push games on 1920 by 1080 monitors, we hook this up to a 4K TV, and this is 4K gaming, that's really the next horizon for gaming. And this is one of the few systems that can actually handle that. We played a whole bunch of games, cranked up to 4K, cranking the, detail levels of games, you know, from medium-high to very high, not quite ultra because you're pushing four times the pixels, and it was really the first time we were able to get a very satisfying 4K gaming experience. It's really miles beyond anything you can do with a current-gen game console or gaming laptop, or even most other gaming desktops. Now here's the bad news. This configuration costs $6000. The better news is, if you really want all this, next-gen stuff, you could, you could dial down the CPU a little and still keep it Haswell-E and just get one of these cards. So it'll be about $2800, in the same Millennium case, from Origin PC and they do a very nice job making a very, adjustable case. You can set it up w-, with the window on this side, you can invert it so the window's on this side. You can actually rotate the whole motherboard 90 degrees. And the cards pointing down from the top, that actually gives you some better heat management and of course you want to hook this up as we do here with a liquid cooling system. If your the kind of person who's in the market for a $6000 gaming desktop, you probably already know what kind of, what your looking for, what kind of hardware and how you want to set it up, but it's very nice to have. That flexibility in a case that's a little bit different from a lot of the off the shelf cases that you see a lot of even high end gaming desktops built into. Obviously you get plenty of ports and connections on the back, especially if you have three video cards in there. In the front they've got this window that opens up, and you've got five hot swappable hard drive trays in here, so that's really cool if you want to move a lot of data around, or just access data very quickly and. Put in the new drive and upgrade it. But of course you're going to pay for the privilege and origin beside getting access to these super high end components as soon as they're available. They do a great job of building the system, of burning it in, of testing it. Making sure it arrives neatly packed so nothing's out of place. And if you do have a problem. They got U.S. based tech support. You can call up and you'll talk to somebody who actually knows what they're talking about when it comes to a very specialized piece of hardware like this. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Origin PC Millennium. [MUSIC]
