It is Might 4th and people Star Wars themed SSDs from Seagate (opens in new tab) introduced final month have made it into a shocking PC from EKWB to mark the event. I might love this construct even with out the refined lightsaber theme, the blacked out case and parts with the purple and blue lighting is, uh, so good.
However rattling if it does not make me want there was a more recent model of these Star Wars-themed Nvidia graphics playing cards to go together with it.
Keep in mind these graphics playing cards? I do, all too properly. Largely as a result of we have been handed one to giveaway again at my final hang-out. A Titan Xp Galactic Empire version (opens in new tab). Oof, it was attractive.
We did find yourself sending it off to 1 fortunate winner, however not earlier than prying it from Dave James’ fingers. To this present day he is nonetheless horribly bitter about it.
There have been two Titan Xp playing cards on the time, the Jedi Order possibility lit up in a vibrant inexperienced hue and a well-used end, and the aforementioned Galactic Empire in a menacing, clean-cut black with purple lighting.
The Empire possibility being absolutely the best-looking particular version card I believe I’ve ever seen. It is only a disgrace that the Pascal structure powering the Titan Xp has aged a lot since. There is no ray tracing on these playing cards. Or DLSS, AI acceleration, nada. If you happen to might take that shroud and cargo it onto an RTX 4090 (opens in new tab), I might be glad. You’d want a a lot larger shroud, nonetheless, the RTX 4090 makes even six-year-old Titan playing cards look teeny tiny.
Take that dream Star Wars GPU, stuff it into EK’s newest construct, subsequent to a few these Seagate Star Wars SSDs, and you will have a PC that any diehard Star Wars fan would reduce off a finger for. Admittedly it would not be a liquid-cooled GPU, so possibly EK would not go for that, however I might take the hit to thermals if it meant a cohesive theme—at the least on this very particular case, anyhow.
Although clearly, it is not a Borg Dice (opens in new tab).
