Maingear Introduces New VYBE Gaming and VR-Ready PC
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
Maingear refreshed their VYBE Gaming PCs, allowing you to build a gaming and virtual reality ready PC starting from $999. Naturally, that price can go up and up, but the system features a solid base and tons of customization options.
There is a large selection of the best gaming components available and countless options to customize everything to sleeving and liquid cooling which makes every system one of a kind, almost. The entire line is designed for maximum upgradeability, allowing you to add more hardware later on when the budget allows it again. As Maingear puts it themselves, “The VYBE is everything users would want out of a system designed purely for gaming and VR.”
There are three base choices from Intel H110 and Z170 chipsets to X99 ones, but the latter will cost you an additional $600 base price. From there on, you can build it with up to Core i7 processors, up to 64GB premium DDR4 memory, NVMe SSDs, and the latest helium filled 10TB hard disks.
Graphics card options range from AMD RX 480 and R9 Nano and Fury to Nvidia GTX 1070, GTX 1080, and Titan X. So there is something for everyone’s price range.
With that in mind, you can guess that you easily can build on top of the base price and a dream system with i7, 32GB RAM, Z170 chipset, GTX 1080 GPU, and NVMe and HDD storage will easily get you above $4200.
“The VYBE provides an amazing amount of power and performance at an incredible price point,” said Wallace Santos, CEO of MAINGEAR. “MAINGEAR is bringing its ‘boutique builds’ to the masses with the VYBE and opening up high-end gaming and VR to a wider audience than ever before.”
MAINGEAR also announced a refresh of its notebook lineup which will feature Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards which make them VR-ready too. Two models are available: the Maingear Nomad starting at $2,399 USD and the Maingear Pulse starting at $2,149 USD.
The NOMAD features such as full desktop processors like the Intel i7-6700K, GTX 1080 8GB graphics card, up to 32GB of RAM, the latest, blazing fast NVME SSDs and a razor sharp 120Hz 4K G-SYNC display.
The Pulse is Maingear’s thinnest and lightest notebook ever. It is only 0.69-inch thin and weighs less than 4lbs. It features a vibrant 15.6-inch 1080p display, a VR-ready GTX 1060 graphics card, NVME SSDs, and an Intel i7-6700HQ processor with up to 32GB of RAM.
