The all new and highly awaited HP Firebird PC 803 gaming tower has been leaked. Engadget managed to get hold of some pictures and specifications about the gaming tower. In a more compact form factor, the novel tower appears to save much space as the disc drive and most other components are at the side of the tower.
The tower boasts of a NVIDIA nForce 760i SLI chipset, Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz processor and two 320GB SATA drives along with Dual NVIDIA GeForce 9800S cards that should save both space and power. Designed quite like a gaming console, the HP Firebird actually has very little space for additional configuration or expansion.
With 4GB of RAM, other interesting features of the tower apparently include Blu-ray, 5-in-1 card reader, 6 USB, 1 FireWire, 2 eSATA, 1 S/PDIF and 1 DVI dual-link and connectivity options that include Bluetooth and 802.11n WiFi. In addition to this the tower is powered by an external supply to eliminate the extra space and heat factors.
Bundled with a wireless keyboard and mouse, the HP Firebird 303 tower should provide gamers with the much needed enhanced gaming-level performance.
While there are no details on the availability and pricing of this gaming tower, we won’t be surprised if it happens to debut at the CES 2009.
