You heard that right. KFC announced the “KFConsole” last week and everyone lost their minds. Partnering with computer hardware manufacturer Cooler Master, KFC aims to end the console wars once and for all with performance that competes with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
The KFConsole boasts incredible performance out the gate with its claims of 4K-TV Gaming, 240FPS with up to 240hz output, is VR ready and has raytracing capabilities. Did I forget to mention they added a “Chicken Chamber?” That’s right—the console is dedicated to heat your fried chicken using its system’s natural heat and airflow system while promising excellent gaming performance.
Detailed information on the KFConsole’s specs are only somewhat helpful. On CoolerMaster’s site, we see that it has 2TB of NVME storage, the Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Compute Element (Core i9 9th Gen), and an unknown RTX-capable graphics card by ASUS. So far there is no information on availability or pricing.
If you’re craving more information, KFC Gaming posted a video on YouTube to show off the console more. Whether or not KFC and Cooler Master can hold up to their promises is beyond me; however, it’s a nice collector’s piece for gamers and at its worst—an overpriced toaster.
