V3 Gaming PC Announces Launch of Updated Avenger High-end Desktop Gaming PC Featuring the Intel® X79 Express Chipset

LOMITA, CA (November 14, 2011) - V3 Gaming PC, manufacturer of high-end computer systems, has announced the launch of the recently overhauled Avenger desktop gaming PC. The "Avenger 2" desktop has been updated with new configuration options to reflect the latest hardware technology available. V3 is now using the brand new Intel 2nd Generation CoreTM Processor Family on the X79 chipset, which brings hex-core processing and quad-channel memory performance to the gaming audience.

Avenger, the acclaimed flagship model from V3 Gaming PC, will remain atop the performance hierarchy, above the award-winning Convoy desktop PC. Like the Convoy, the updated Avenger sports Intel 2nd Generation CoreTM Processors, albeit more recent, more powerful versions of the industry-leading processor family. At launch the Avenger can be equipped with the Intel Core i7 3960X, or the Intel Core i7 3930K. The former is the latest to take the Extreme Edition throne, with an unlocked multiplier to permit overclocking, six Hyper-Threaded processing cores at 3.3GHz, and a monstrous 15MB of L3 cache. The latter is a more affordable but just as powerful unlocked six-core processor with Hyper-Threading at 3.2GHz with "only" 12MB of L3 cache.

The new processors are housed on the brand new X79 Express Chipset. Desktop motherboards based on the X79 chipset follow in the footsteps of the previous performance chipset offerings from Intel by supporting the latest computing technologies and offering superior features. Among the most notable features of the X79 chipset is the utilization of the processor's quad-channel memory controller. Unprecedented in the enthusiast market, the quad-channel memory capability on the X79 platform provides enormous memory bandwidth that will suit the needs of gamers and professionals alike.

Chuck Morris, System Engineer at V3 Gaming PC, remarks, "Over the past several weeks we've been able to extensively validate the X79 chipset and new processors as an exceptional solution for both high-end gaming and professional digital content creation applications." Part of what makes the X79 chipset so versatile is its support for ultra high-end graphics configurations, such as those achieved through NVIDIA's SLI Technology.

"For gamers looking to achieve the best possible gaming experience when playing the latest and greatest games like Battlefield 3, we recommend the Avenger configured with either of the processor options and three NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 graphics cards in 3-way SLI." says Thomas Gribble, V3's Project Manager.

V3 Gaming PC suggests gamers try out NVIDIA® 3D VisionTM 2 Technology with the Avenger. Featuring bigger glasses, brighter images, and a better overall 3D experience, 3D Vision 2 from NVIDIA provides the most immersive gaming experience possible. An optimal Avenger desktop from V3 Gaming PC would also be configured with up to 32GB of high-speed DDR3 memory, ultra-fast Solid State Disks for Storage, and advanced liquid cooling to keep the system running cool and quiet. V3 Gaming PC also recommends that all potential customers chose its famous and complimentary Launch Control overclocking service to take the performance of their system to the next level. All V3 Gaming PCs are backed by industry-leading lifetime labor and technical support services, as well as a 3-year limited warranty on parts. Built-to-order Convoy and Convoy 3DS Desktop PCs can be ordered directly from the V3 Gaming PC website.
