NVIDIA Launches GeForce GTX Battlebox Program

NVIDIA unveiled today the GeForce GTX Battlebox program which certifies PCs form "hand-picked system builders" as ready for 4K gaming at maximum graphics quality.

"Working in concert with hand-picked system builders, we’ve developed a new breed of gaming machine purposely built to play this Holiday’s AAA, combat-focused games at super high resolutions, at high settings and every NVIDIA-exclusive feature enabled," the company explained.

According to NVIDIA, GeForce GTX Battlebox certified PCs are capable of running next gen games at "console-destroying graphics" that are beyond the capabilities of any next-gen console.

Each GeForce GTX Battlebox PC features GeForce GTX 780 or TITAN GPUs in 2 and 3-Way SLI configurations, supported by overclocked Intel Haswell i5 and i7 CPUs, advanced cooling systems, high-speed DDR3 RAM to assist with overclocking, and the latest high-speed SSDs, which load the action in record time. With the performance afforded by such setups, GeForce GTX Battleboxes are ready for 4K Gaming.

longside 4K-Ready GeForce GTX Battlebox systems, boutique builders will be offering 4K monitors at the point of sale. At present, only ASUS sell a 4K monitor in the form of the 31.5” PQ321Q, but NVIDIA expects a host of new models to choose from in the near future.

"Battlebox certified PCs are capable of running next gen games at "console-destroying graphics" that are beyond the capabilities of any next-gen console." Yeah so's my 2 year old $700 BigBadBlack box (real name, no shit). WTF anyone care about 4096p on a little PC monitor for? 1080 is fine on an 80" TV you fucking twits. What's the next gimmick gonna be Nvidia?

4k can wait

is it 4k cause of the resolution or the price of the monitor? fuck that shit I aint spending 3500 on a fucking monitor that's retarded gaming isn't that high on my list of prioritys my current pc can run next gen shit just fine

am I the only one who still

am I the only one who still likes games at 800x600? I can't notice much gain from 1024/768. In fact I PREFER lower resolution for most games because the high-res exposes just how flat the geometry is (like the stony textured beach floor). A game like Doom run on 640x480 looks horribly squarish, which isn't so noticable on 320x240. Voxel games like Outcast look bette at lower res with effects like depth-of-field & anti-aliasing (movie/film style, rather than the sharp HD junk nowadays).
