Nvidia Corp. on Tuesday unveiled its new initiative called GeForce GTX Battlebox. Under the new program leading makers of high-performance gaming PCs will offers Battlebox-branded systems optimized to run the latest PC games at super high resolutions, at high settings and every Nvidia-exclusive feature enabled.

Each Nvidia GeForce GTX Battlebox PCs features GeForce GTX 780 or GeForce GTX Titan GPUs in 2 and 3-way SLI configurations, supported by overclocked Intel Core i5 and i7 microprocessors, advanced cooling systems, high-speed DDR3 RAM to assist with overclocking, and the latest high-speed SSDs. With the performance afforded by such setups, GeForce GTX Battleboxes are ready for gaming in ultra-high definition 4K (3840*2160) resolution, the next big thin’ for enthusiast PC gamers. Quite naturally, Battlebox PCs should also come equipped with 4K monitors. Boutique PC builders will be offering Asus 31.5” PQ321Q display with 3840*2160 resolution, but a host of new models to choose from will be available in the near future.

GeForce GTX Battlebox systems come equipped with Nvidia’s new SLI bridge. Themed to match the design of the GeForce GTX Titan, GeForce GTX 780, and GeForce GTX 770, the new SLI Bridge enables illumination of its GeForce GTX claw logo, which matches the illuminated “GeForce GTX” text on the graphics cards themselves.

The Battlebox program is Nvidia’s indirect response to the launch of new high-end AMD Radeon R9 products, which are also claimed to be optimized for rendering in 4K resolution.

Nvidia’s Battlebox systems, which will be available from leading-edge PC makers, such as DigitalStorm, Falcom Northwest, Maingear, Origin and others, will cost from $2500 and upwards. It is hard to expect Battlebox PCs to become popular not only because their extreme prices, but also because of limited production of 4K UHD displays.

Nvidia will be battling to move these hence the product name. This targeted portion of the gaming market is so niche it won't generate Nvidia much in sales. If anything it is an attempt to make a flagship type product to create a halo over the brand. But I think AMD really have their measure.

Really!!!??? Test setups of Eyefinity with 3 monitors 5760x1200 (close to 4K) works just fine with hi-end AMD processors, so who cares about Intel?

Its smart move, as these are the people who always have money and currently Intel and Nvidia rule the ultra high end. That won't change anytime soon.

The wealthy neighbours on my street aren't parting with their money atm and haven't done so since the GFC began. Everything has tightened up and people are being cautious until they can see real signs of growth in the economy. Only then will they start to spend money on luxury items knowing it will be covered by the returns on their investments. The growth isn't in high end and expensive products. PS4/Xbox will move units because the price is right for the times. Battlebox is more like BattleToPayOffBox and will be skipped.

Hmmm, 2 or 3 high end and expensive Nvidia graphics cards, plus an expensive Intel processor, or 1 Radeon R9 graphics card and a relatively cheap AMD processor that can render at 4K ...lemme think ...
and that's not taking the lack of air flow around those three cards into consideration either

AMD processors don't go in high end systems. Rich people have never been richer at the moment. Mercedes just had their biggest year ever.

1 Radeon R9 equal to 2 or 3 Titan? Where do you get that fact?

Where did you read I said they were equal?
I only stated that an AMD R9 can render 4K, whereas the article states you need two Titans or three GTX 780's to render at that quality.

Only fanboys will use fx8350 with R9 290X,,, fx will creat huge bottleneck its not capable to handle such powerful gpu,on other side fx consumes twices the electricity............my openion is i7-4770K i personally saw performance difference between fx8350 and 4770K running on hd7990 and i saw i7-4770K is more than 40% powerful than fx.

Don't buy current fx if u hv powerful gpu like gtx 680,7970ghz

Only hope is mantle can boost performance.
