MAINGEAR releases SPARK gaming PC

Gaming is a popular activity nowadays but in many cases you can’t take your desktop PC with you anywhere due to excessive height and safety concerns. If this is an issue you face every day then you need SPARK – a small form factor gaming PC designed and sold by MAINGEAR.

The SPARK is the winner of the Popular Science Product of the future award, given at CES 2014. The minicomputer weighs less than one pound and can fit in the palm of your hand. The computer measures 4.5 inches wide, 4.23 inches deep and 2.34 inches tall. It is based on an AMD A8-5557M APU that runs at 2.1 GHz (3.1 GHz in Turbo mode) and comes with two video solutions. The first one is integrated in the APU and quite naturally packs Radeon hardware; the second one is a discrete AMD Radeon R9 M275X video card with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. The SPARK also provides support for up to 16 GB of DDR3-1600 memory, four USB 3.0 ports, a mSATA slot for SSDs with capacities of up to 512 GB and a 2.5-inch SATA slot for SATA 3.0 hard drives. The machine also provides Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 so you will stay connected at any time. A 135-watt power supply units powers the SPARK.

The new small-sized gaming computer sells for USD 699 and up. The purchase also entitles you to four free games that are worth USD 200.
