Fujitsu unveils Celsius Ultra gaming rig

By on
Last month Fujitsu made clear its intentions to compete in the high-end gaming segment, promising to craft the “fastest rig on the planet” and blurting out a bunch of vague marketing claims. Today, we have an actual name and official specs. Now calling it the fastest air-cooled gaming system around, Fujitsu has packed a 3.33GHz Intel Core i7-975 and a pair of souped-up GeForce GTX 295s running in SLI under the hood.

In addition, the new Celsius Ultra has been equipped with no less than 6 x 2GB DDR3-1333 memory modules, one 150GB Western Digital VelociRaptor HDD working at 10,000RPM and dual 1TB hard drives from Seagate, Creative Titanium X-Fi audio card, Blu-ray and DVD writer combo, and 64-bit Windows Vista Business. Lastly, the “German ultra clocking” thing apparently refers to a custom-made Fujitsu motherboard and tweaker-ready BIOS found exclusively on the Celsius Ultra.

The system is being shown off at Gamescon this week in Germany and is expected to become available for the equivalent of $5,685 when it launches in Europe sometime after the currently ongoing show.
