"We sold out [Dell XPS 600 Renegade systems] in 3 days. The XPS 600 Renegade was a great example of Dell’s ability to deliver cutting edge technologies to gamers, and we’re committed to making these technologies – such as physics accelerators and quad SLI – more broadly available over time," said Liem Nguyen, a spokesman for Dell.
What makes the XPS 600 Renegade so special? Well, the system specs pretty much speak for themselves.
The Dell XPS 600 Renegade was equipped with Intel Pentium Extreme Edition dual-core processor overclocked to 4.26GHz, 2GB of PC2-5400 (667MHz) memory, specially designed graphics cards each carrying two NVIDIA GeForce 7900 graphics processors with 512MB of memory per chip (2GB in total), Western Digital Raptor hard disk drives, Ageia PhysX accelerator for physics effects and so on. Dell sold the system for roughly $10 000, an unprecedented price of a desktop PC for gaming.
