HP has just outed their Pavilion HPE Phoenix Desktop PC, right on time for the glut of AAA games coming this holiday season. The Phoenix has everything a gamer needs to frag his friends and enemies into oblivion – Intel Core i5-2400, up to 16GB of DDR3 memory and an AMD Radeon HD 6850 (1 GB GDDR5 dedicated) discrete graphics. There’s enough room in the Phoenix for up to 9 TB of storage and the desktop comes with HP’s Beats Audio technology. HP claims that the Phoenix is free from non-essential programs (AKA bloatware), though the company has said that it’ll come with their LinkUp technology (which allows content on a user’s desktop PC accessible on their notebook), Skype and Norton Internet Security. There’s currently no date on when this thing will land nor a price for this behemoth yet, but you can expect the answer to the two to be ‘soon’, and ‘wallet emptyingly expensive’.
