Yes, it’s real. KFC’s Gaming PC is not a joke and does actually manage to pack some rather powerful specs, alongside a built-in “chicken chamber”.
2020 has been a pretty horrendous year, bundle in trying to grab a new console or PC part and you’ve got yourself even more to worry about.
There is due to be a huge PS5 stock update in 2021, but many retailers have had none in months.
So, instead of trying to get your hands on a PS5, how about you get your hands coated in a brand-new KFC Gaming PC.
That’s right, KFC has partnered with Coolermaster in order to bring to the table, quite literally, their own gaming PC. You can see a full rundown of the KFC themed computer here.
KFC Gaming, yes that’s a thing now, tweeted earlier this week showing off their rather unusual creation:
KFC Gaming PC: Surprising Specs
KFC and Coolermaster’s rather bizarre collab actually comes with some rather zingy specifications.
Surprisingly, the PC promises 4K support at 240fps. Furthermore, the PC can support 240hz output on 4K displays.
Inside you will notice that there are is an Intel Core I9 Processor and an easily swappable ASUS GPU slot.
Rather fittingly, the PC comes bundled with two 1TB SSD’s, the Seagate ‘Firecuda’. No storage solution is better named for such a job than the ‘Firecuda’, ensuring your chicken is hot is top priority.
Coolermaster also mentions that KFC’s Gaming PC will feature Ray Tracing. Therefore it’s likely that there will be one of the latest 3000 Series Nvidia cards to go along with it.
The “Chicken Chamber”
Most important of all, however, is the ominously titled “Chicken Chamber”.
Let’s be honest, gaming and eating have never been a particularly harmonious combination. Interestingly, however, the ‘Chicken Chamber’ feature ensures you can do both at the same time.
For Gamers who really cannot step away from their systems for even a moment, Coolermaster’s KFC Gaming PC comes equipped with a separate chamber for keeping food warm.
Coolermaster describes: “Utilising the systems natural heat and airflow system you can now focus on your gameplay and enjoy hot, crispy chicken between rounds”
This doesn’t seem like a particularly well thought out plan… Players generally want to try and avoid getting food and drink everywhere, never mind putting it inside their systems.
The amount of questions this particular feature raises is rather alarming, but who are we to judge!
Not to mention that KFC’s Gaming PC or ‘KFConsole’ looks like it belongs on your kitchen counter, not on your desk space.
What do you make of KFC’s Gaming PC? Is utilizing your system’s airflow to keep food warm a stroke of genius, or complete madness?
Perhaps this can be taken a step further and we can begin to cook food from scratch using only our PC’s…
Or maybe we just need a poorly optimized game like Cyberpunk 2077 which is considered unplayable on PS4 and Xbox One consoles to turn our gaming PC’s into fully functioning grills…
