HP is introducing the "HP Firebird with VoodooDNA" 802 and 803 PCs, which will be featured at the CES 2009 show this week in Las Vegas.

Both Firebirds join the Voodoo Omen and HP's Blackbird gaming PCs, as a more compact gaming PC for 2009. Both versions of the Firebird are style-forward, eschewing the blocky gaming tower of the past: the Firebird has a slimmer, firebird_HP_CybersSystem.BlogSpot.comfloating design ID that evokes the Blackbird while keeping the slim theme. Like the Blackbird, the Firebird is easy to get into and service, though the slimmer chassis predictably has less expansion space.

The Firebird centers around a quad-core Intel Core 2 Quad processor (liquid cooled, naturally), dual Nvidia GeForce 9800S graphics cards in SLI configuration, and 4 Gbytes of DDR2 memory. The 802 comes with a Core 2 Quad Q9400 processor, 500GB (2 x 250-GB) hard drive capacity, and a slot-loading DVD burner. The 803 comes with a faster Q9550 processor, 640 GB (2 x 320GB) hard drive capacity, and Blu-ray player/DVD burner combo drive (also slot-loading). The Firebird's power supply is external, which saves space in the chassis, while giving the Firebird better power efficiency than other gaming desktops. (full Story)
