CyberPower’s Trinity Fang is ready to sink its teeth into competitors

Just when we thought no one could possibly dazzle or intrigue hardcore gamers more than Origin at CES 2015, CyberPower took the wraps off the Fang Trinity. Much like the Omega, this is a prototype not yet ready for primetime, but the specifics are clearer, and the ETA more precise – within three months of its out-of-the-blue introduction.

Aesthetically, the Omega and Fang Trinity couldn’t be further apart, although they’re both obviously designed for use in a living room entertainment center. Don’t even try to find the Fang an earthly equivalent. It’s something Christopher Nolan could have concocted to help Matthew McConaughey save humanity.

Beyond the sheer style and razzle-dazzle of the design, there’s a practical component to how the cutting-edge PC is built. Instead of cramming every component and piece of hardware into a single, sealed case, CyberPower split them in three separate chambers, united by a central “trunk,” as PC World describes it.

One pod accommodates the computer’s motherboard, CPU and liquid cooling system, the second the 500-watt power supply, a couple of SSDs, a hard disk and Blu-ray drive, and the third holds a full-size GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, and an additional SSD trio.

No word yet on whether we’re looking at a modular PC, where you can easily detach the composing capsules and swap them for higher or lower-end parts. But surely, CyberPower will let gamers tinker with the Fang Trinity, and customize it in a number of ways.

And in case you’re wondering, yes, the system’s SSD grand total at the moment sits at a whopping five, with an extra 3.5-inch hard drive thrown in the mix for incurable digital hoarders. The motherboard is a state-of-the-art Gigabyte Z97 Mini-ITX, and the highest you can go in the processing department is a 4GHz Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell.
