Corsair Unleashes Bulldog DIY 4K Gaming
PC on the Living Room
Corsair's liquid CPU and GPU cooling technology condenses true 4K gaming performance into a compact, quiet, living-room ready Bulldog PCNEW DELHI, India - June 2, 2015
"Bulldog is designed to take the 4K gaming experience delivered by desktop gaming PCs, and bring it to the big 4K screens in the home," said Mr Andy Paul, CEO of Corsair Components. "We knew we needed to deliver a solution that was elegant, powerful, and compact. By leveraging our leading expertise in PC case design and liquid cooling, we met that goal with Bulldog. We can't wait to unleash it on gamers this fall."
With the increasing affordability of 4K TVs and the arrival of new NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards, PCs are now poised to deliver the definitive gaming experience in 4K, far beyond the 1080P limitation of current game consoles and most Steam Machines. However, 4K-capable PCs require a lot of power and run hot when pushed, throttling down performance and becoming excessively loud as the stock fans struggle to cool the CPU and graphics card.
Bulldog is designed with PC enthusiasts in mind, incorporating a builder-friendly layout and tool-free features, and using standard mini-ITX motherboards and SFX12V PSUs for future-proof upgradeability so users can keep pace as games and hardware evolve. Since Bulldog provides the foundation of a full PC, users can choose the OS that suits their needs: Windows, SteamOS, or Linux.
