Predator G6 Gaming Desktop
Powered by the latest 6th Generation Intel® Core® i7-6700K processors, the Predator G6 (G6-710) delivers maximum power by utilizing the massive potential of the Intel core, the latest Windows 10 OS, and a market-dominating 64GB of DDR4 dual-channel memory. All this is packed into a radically redesigned armor-like shell crafted to look the part of an unstoppable fighting machine. The casing allows for a bi-directional inflow of air to enable the IceTunnel cooling, and also houses the expansion slots, letting the beast support up to 12TB of storage.
Revo Build Mini PC
The Revo Build (M1-601) is a mini PC that is easily customized with blocks that provide different functions such as extra storage, speakers and microphones, or even wireless charging. The blocks connect precisely via magnetic pogo pins that make assembling a computer as easy as playing with toy blocks. The blocks can also work independently or with other PCs.
