Nvidia’s Beer-tastic KEGputer

1 min read


Many of you reading this would know that some years ago, I gave up on PC gaming in favour of the less robust but infinitely simpler and more relaxed world of console gaming. A few games, here and there, have nearly tempted me back – but nothing so far’s really swayed me.

NVidia has created a gaming PC that might just get me to switch back – by combining two of my favourite things in the world. Video games and beer.

For their stand at this year’s CES, NVIDIA has -In conjunction with the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co -  built one heck of a monster GeForce gaming rig in to a functional 15.5 gallon beer keg. It naturally has liquid cooling as well as built-in refrigeration ensuring a frosty brew, and fluid frame-rates.

Here are the specs of the KEGputer, which would pretty much run anything you threw at it at the highest possible settings :

  • 2 x EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Hydrocopper 2 graphics cards in 2-Way SLI
  • ASUS P67 Sandybridge motherboard
  • Intel i7 2600 3.4 Ghz Sandybridge CPU
  • 8 gigs of DDR3 Crucial Ballistix at 1600 Mhz
  • Crucial 160 Gig SSD
  • Danger Den Extreme liquid cooling system
  • Antec 1200 watt TruePower Quattro PSU

Now they just need to slap on a pair of tits and get it to make sandwiches and I’d be in heaven!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
