iBuyPower Introduces SBX Entertainment System
There are very few instances where one product category can leap frog over to another and make a profound impact. Today, iBUYPOWER, makes one such leap. Introducing the iBUYPOWER SBX Entertainment System, an ultra-simplified system designed to do one thing: entertain. Melding together the simplicity of a traditional game console, but harnessing power usually available to only high-end desktop PCs, iBUYPOWER is able to usher in both performance and content unheard of in the living room space.
Designed in Los Angeles, iBUYPOWER labored to create a highly tuned and optimized system that would deliver a sustainable 60 frames-per second gaming experience at true high-definition resolutions. Powered by a high-performance AMD multi-core processor paired with the latest Radeon HD graphics technology from AMD, customers will be able to jump a full generation ahead of the latest game consoles.
“What we really wanted to do was make an impact in the living room. We wanted to really show the world that the power of desktop gaming machine can be experienced in the living room in a totally seamless way,” said Darren Su, Co-founder and VP of iBUYPOWER. “All preconceptions of what entertainment in the living room should and can be, are out the door.”
Customers can expect an out-of-box experience unlike any other. Every iBUYPOWER SBX comes with a Microsoft Xbox game controller so customers can jump into the action immediately. All aspects of design and hardware are optimized for a gaming experience that sheds away legacy PC overhead. Make no mistake about it; this is not a PC.
Customers will be able to configure their SBX to boot into Steam Big Picture mode, or any other configuration. Games, media, streaming, the SBX handles it all. It’ll even be the perfect system for those who want to enjoy their classic games on emulation on the big screen. SBX is also fully Steam OS ready.
iBUYPOWER’s SBX is available for pre-order immediately 4 and will ship in 3 weeks starting at $399 and is available in matte black.
