November 1, 2004 – CALGARY, ALBERTA – VoodooPC, a world leader in the design and manufacturing of high-performance personalized computer systems, today announced the launch of the world’s fastest Gaming Computer, the Voodoo RAGE SLi.
„RAGE SLi produces gaming performance that is currently unheard of,“ says Trentent Tye, chief software engineer, VoodooPC and avid gamer, „PC Gamers are always looking for an edge to make their gaming experience more immersive and realistic. With RAGE SLi the popular title Doom 3 runs smoother than ever, at over 107 frames per second at 1600X1200 with high detail. In laymen’s terms that means the game play is smoother than silk – to put this in perspective, current high end gaming systems will run Doom 3 with the same settings at 30 frames per second.“
RAGE SLi is the first of many SLi based systems that VoodooPC will be launching. RAGE SLi is also the first personal computer to introduce technologies like PCI Express to an AMD processor-based platform, which opens up the doors for future upgrades. There are multiple ways to implement SLi technology, and currently there is a choice between AMD and Intel processors. VoodooPC has chosen AMD processors to drive their flagship machines, as noted in following statement from their CTO.
„Voodoo RAGE SLi is a computer system featuring Nvidia SLi, a ground-breaking technology which effectively combines two video processors to nearly double the graphic performance of the machine,“ said Rahul Sood, president & CTO of VoodooPC. „We don’t stop there, however, our RAGE SLi system uses an AMD Athlon FX-55 CPU with an NVIDIA nForce4 chipset, and the entire platform is designed for gaming. To put it bluntly, with RAGE SLi you can bet your entire bank that our system will destroy any XEON based SLi system in any game – liquid cooled or not.“
„With the mind-blowing power of our latest AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 processor, this Voodoo gaming machine can take you on an unbelievable ride,“ said John C. Morris, division marketing manager for desktop business, Computation Product Group, AMD. „We have infused the AMD64 processor family with the ultimate in performance to satisfy the most demanding PC enthusiast.“
VoodooPC is known for building some of the worlds finest computer systems, RAGE SLi is another system added to their PC Gaming lineup. RAGE SLi features technologies from Nvidia, AMD, Hitachi, and ASUS.
