You can now buy a gaming PC inside a Tesla Model S built to scale, which can be driven
We’ve seen a lot of PCs tuned in the last few years but… a gaming PC that can be driven? The popular computer assembly brand, Origin PC, is launching its new Ludicrous PC, a gaming PC inside a scale Tesla Model S, for a limited time.
Half in earnest, half in jest, the advertising describes it as the world’s fastest gaming PC, both for its hardware, as we will see, and for its ability to travel.
If you want to see this technical prodigy in all its glory, check out this video from popular youtuber Marques Brownlee, on whose Tesla Model S it is based:
What Origin PC has done is take a scale Tesla Model S, which is sold as a children’s toy, and insert a PC inside it.
The biggest challenge was the cooling, because they didn’t want to change the design of the car or add air vents. So they opted for a Hydro X liquid cooling system, which they had to modify to fit the Tesla’s bodywork.
The hardware on this Ludicrous PC is absolutely spectacular. It features a 12-core AMD Ryzen 3900X processor, 32 GB Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM, NVIDIA RTX 2080Ti graphics card, 2 TB CORSAIR Force Series MP600 PCIe 4.0 SSD, and a 4 TB Samsung 860 PRO SSD. We don’t know if it’s the fastest PC, but there are few that can beat it…
The new generation of RTX graphics cards allows us to enjoy ray tracing, the graphics technology of the future. This Zotac RTX 2060 model is one of the most affordable. It has 6 GB of GDDR6 memory, and a clock speed of 1680 Mhz.
If you want to use it as a child’s vehicle… you can too. It has a battery and both the steering wheel and the lights work perfectly. But watch out for the bumps, because you can load the Tesla and the PC at the same time.
If you want to get hold of it, it’ll cost you about the same as a cheap car. This Ludicrous PC costs $13,373. It will only be on sale for a limited time, through the Origin PC store.
