Origin Transcends Above The PC And Console Wars With The Big O

It's so transcendent that no mortal can buy one.

Today, in news about cool products I will never afford (kind of a moot point, since it’s also not for sale) Origin PC has released one of their coolest and most exorbitant projects yet. To be honest, I first saw it in an Unbox Therapy video, which you can view below, but Origin did send out a press release for this bad boy and it reads as stunning as it looks.

The Origin Big O is a celebration of the PC corporation’s 10-year anniversary, and a showcase of the artistry and skill that you get if you’re ever buying a prebuilt computer from them. I’m not really the biggest fan of prebuilt towers in general, as PC building is an experience that’s on par with playing on PC itself, but I do appreciate when companies make these super high-end builds that are often comparable to super cars, mostly thanks to the spectacle they cause.

And what a spectacle this is, as this particular PC – if you can even call it one at this point – joins together all of the consoles into one high-end and sexy PC tower. Gone are the days where you must pick between playing any console exclusive, as the Big O comes with an Xbox One X, a PlayStation 4 Pro and a Nintendo Switch – plus an RTX- and Intel-powered PC, of course.

The system boasts a hardline liquid cooling setup across the build, with even the consoles sporting one that’s attuned to their proper color schemes. Props to the team for properly implementing that, as it can be quite a pain, especially in a system as complex as this. Of course, the PC itself is powered by the best of the best, rocking an Intel Core i9-9900K 8-Core Processor with 5 GHz Turbo Boost and a NVIDIA TITAN RTX 24GB GDDR6 graphics card. The CPU and GPU are settled in an MSI MEG Z390 GODLIKE motherboard with 64GB of Corsair’s Dominator Platinum RGB RAM.

The entire system can be utilized with the built-in Elgato 4K60 capture card, or through a single HDMI output pre-wired between the three consoles, with an intuitive switcher built-in. The Switch itself had its dock integrated into the front for easier access.

I don’t think it’s a PC so much as a technical showpiece, but it does work, as seen on Unbox Therapy’s video. Kind of makes me wish that they will actually release this though, as I’m very curious as to how much Origin will charge for it.
