HP's new Blackbird 002 High-End Gaming System with Voodoo DNA, tested and burned in at HotHardware.com.
After HP's acquisition of Voodoo PC last year, many speculated that the company's entrance into the high-end gaming PC market was imminent. After all, why else would they have bought Voodoo, right? But since then, not much has changed. It seemed as if it was business as usual at both HP and Voodoo. HP was secretly working on their own gaming PC, however, and its codename was Blackbird.
Though it may appear otherwise, the Blackbird wasn't being designed solely by the newly acquired engineers from Voodoo. In fact, the Blackbird project was well underway before the acquisition was finalized. The two did collaborate on a design though, that ultimately became the product featured at HotHardware.com today, the Blackbird 002 - a high-end, fully customizable machine that's poised to do battle with the best gaming systems the industry has to offer.
Benchmarks and a full design showcase are included in the article, here:
From the article:
As expected, this new gaming system powered by Intel's fastest quad-core processor that's been overclocked by more than 22%, along with 4GB of Corsair's top of the line Dominator memory, and a pair of NVIDIA's flagship 8800 Ultra graphics cards, the Hewlett Packard Blackbird 002 is simply a high performance machine. When you cram as many high-end components into a solution like this, it can't help but be fast. In a few of the tests the machine put up benchmark scores higher than any other machine we've tested to date...
Ultimately, the Blackbird 002 is what HP designed it to be, a fully customizable, high performance gaming machine that also happens to be easy to access, upgrade, and work on. We're also told that pricing will be in-line with competitive offerings, further solidifying the Blackbird 002's appeal among other high-end gaming system.
