Posted on March 7, 2008, Shawn Sines Vigor Reveals Colossus Gaming Rig
Vigor Gaming has announced it’s latest high-end desktop geared for gaming, Colossus. The Vigor Colossus features the latest dual-processor technology from Intel and the multi-GPU technologies of NVIDIA’s Quad SLI and AMD’s CrossFireX. The suggested set up runs for $6,799 USD, which includes a standard 3-year limited parts and life-time labor warranty. Get the complete specs after the break.
Based on Skulltrail, Intel’s first Dual Socket Extreme Desktop Platform, the Colossus features full support for two Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 quad-core processors. Clocked at 3.2GHz and capable of reaching much higher speeds through Vigor’s complimentary overclocking service, these enterprise-level chips provide industry-leading performance that can handle even the most graphically intense computer games with ease. The Intel D5400XS mainboard that makes Skulltrail possible also incorporates the latest technologies from NVIDIA and AMD that allow for multi-GPU configurations.
Skulltrail-based Colossus from Vigor Gaming can currently support up to eight processing cores and four graphics cards; a configuration that is capable of running demanding video games like Crysis and Call of Duty 4. Thanks to these powerful graphic cards, the Colossus is capable of running up to two XHD (2560×1600 resolution) monitors with stunning clarity and minimal effect on performance. The Vigor Gaming Colossus can be configured with Windows Vista 64-bit and up to 8GB of fully-buffered DDR2 memory clocked at 800MHz. All of these high-end components are cooled using Vigor’s exclusive Twin-Peaks cooling system, allowing the Colossus to run at full speed indefinitely. The Colossus is designed primarily for use as an extreme gaming desktop, but doubles as a powerful multimedia content platform, making it the perfect solution to blend work and play on a single computer.
The default configuration for Vigor Gaming’s Colossus PC includes 4GB of DDR2 800 memory, more than 2 Terabytes of Hard Drive space in RAID-0 configuration, a 1000W power supply, and two overclocked NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT graphics cards, among other components. This recommended configuration is available direct from Vigor Gaming at www.vigorgaming.com for $6,799 (US). A fully-configured Vigor Gaming Colossus PC, including two Western Digital Raptor 150 Hard Drives, two AMD Radeon HD 3870 X2 graphics cards, 8GB of fully-buffered DDR2 800 memory, high-fidelity audio by Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi, and many other high-end components would cost just over $8100.
The Colossus, like all other desktop systems from Vigor Gaming, comes with a standard 3-year limited parts and life-time labor warranty. Vigor Gaming also offers two promotions with its desktop systems, which include options such as free Logitech gaming peripherals, free shipping, or instant rebates.
