First New VoodooPC since HP Buyout

VoodooPC, the specialist producer of personalized, high-performance PCs, has launched its first new model since it was recently taken over by HP.

The OMEN Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core uses the Intel Core2 Extreme Quad-Core processor. The company quotes the new processors as having 70% more processing power than Intel’s dual core processors. The new machine is set to launch on November 14. VoodooPC say that the new quad-core OMEN will deliver incredible desktop performance across today’s industry standard benchmarks, along with new levels of multi-threading performance and multi-tasking responsiveness for ultra-realistic gaming experiences.

The new OMEN is the fastest near silent PC on the market, equipped with a system-wide intercooler that silently cools the Quad-Core processor, choice of ATi Crossfire or nVidia SLI graphics cards and motherboard chipsets. Additional features include an advanced chamber airflow layout that allows the system to operate at peak efficiency without draining excess power. Copper-cooled pre-overclocked graphics cards let OMEN users set their monitors to resolutions at WQXGA. The OMEN Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core is fully upgradeable, including a modular swappable power supply.

“The cutting edge technology in the new quad-core allows users to manage simultaneous tasks faster and smoother, enabling them to run multiple tasks without slowdowns to applications,” said Rahul Sood, founder of VoodooPC who now carries the title of chief technologist, global gaming PC business unit, HP. “This, combined with the ability to run highly threaded applications, puts our Extreme Quad-Core on the cutting edge of technology.”
