CORSAIR Launches BULLDOG 4K Living Room PC and LAPDOG Portable Gaming Control Center
CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC components and high-performance gaming hardware today announced the release of its eagerly anticipated BULLDOG 4K living room PC kit and LAPDOG portable gaming control center, bringing 4K PC Gaming into the living room with the intuitive, accurate controls of a full size mouse and keyboard.
BULLDOG compresses high-end desktop PC performance into a form factor fit for your living room, supporting liquid cooling for both the processor and graphics card to deliver true 4K performance for the most detailed and immersive gaming experience possible. LAPDOG is the perfect companion for BULLDOG, bringing precision desktop peripherals to your couch with un-matched comfort. Together, BULLDOG and LAPDOG deliver the un-rivalled 4K PC Gaming experience in your living room.
CORSAIR BULLDOG – True 4K Gaming Performance in Your Living Room
First announced as a prototype at Computex 2015, the CORSAIR BULLDOG set PC enthusiast imaginations racing with the prospect of finally bringing a full-performance, liquid cooled PC into the living room. Continuously developed since and collecting a Best of CES 2016 Honoree distinction, CORSAIR BULLDOG finally realises the potential of a full-performance liquid-cooled PC in the living room.
Available as both a kit and via select configured systems from Micro Center in North America, BULLDOG includes a trio of innovations right in the box to bring the enthusiast PC to a living-room friendly form factor. Sleek industrial design and a console-sized case fit right in with the rest of your home entertainment gear, the multi-award winning CORSAIR SF600 SFX power supply powers the most ambitious of builds and the low-profile CORSAIR H5SF liquid cooler efficiently cools the CPU. BULLDOG comes with an Intel Z170 mini-ITX motherboard (specific model varies between retailer) right in the box, so all you need to do is add the CPU, memory, graphics card and storage to build a true living room gaming PC, with no compromises on performance.
While BULLDOG comes pre-configured for easy assembly and compatibility, it’s also been built with upgrades in mind. Supporting up to three 2.5in SSDs or one 2.5in and one 3.5in HDD mount, BULLDOG carries all the features you’d expect from a CORSAIR case. Builder-friendly layout, tool-free fittings and a standard mini-ITX form factor makes upgrades easy. What’s more, BULLDOG can mount not just the H5SF low-profile CPU cooler, but also a host of compatible all-in-one graphics card liquid-coolers such as the Corsair HG10 and H55, providing the benefits of liquid cooling to not just the CPU, but the power-hungry GPU as well.
LAPDOG – Living Room PC Gaming Done Right.
First shown at Computex 2015 and the winner of numerous “Best of Show” awards CORSAIR Lapdog brings desktop CORSAIR gaming peripheral performance to the living room. A full-size portable gaming control center, LAPDOG allows you to mount your choice of CORSAIR K70 or K65 Keyboard and mouse to enjoy the complete PC gaming experience from the comfort of your couch.
Built from anodized, brushed aluminium LAPDOG feels as good as it looks, and with a huge removable memory foam lap cushion is made for comfort as well as style. Weighing just 5.8lbs (2.63 kg), multi-hour gaming sessions are a breeze, with the light-weight aluminium chassis and moulded cushion minimizing weight and pressure. Any CORSAIR K70 or K65 mechanical keyboard fits securely into Lapdog, while a full-size 11in x 11in textured-finish mouse pad provides both precision tracking for optical or laser sensor equipped mice and enough surface area to enable the best gaming mouse experience.
CORSAIR is no new-comer when it comes to cable management, and LAPDOG is no exception. Cables and connectors are tucked away inside LAPDOG’s hidden compartment, along with an integrated powered USB 3.0 hub with four USB 3.0 ports, allowing gamers to connect not just a keyboard and mouse, but also a USB headset, phone, flash drive or any other USB device, all right from their seat. Connected via a 16ft / 4.8m USB 3.0 cable, LAPDOG offers the reliability of a wired connection for maximum performance and minimal latency.
Combining the precision of CORSAIR’s industry leading keyboards and mice with supreme comfort and aluminium construction, LAPDOG is living room PC gaming done right.
