The Great Equalizer: KFC Unveils KFConsole Powered by Intel x ASUS, Cooler Master, Seagate (Featuring Chicken Chamber)

The dankest of memes has come out of the digital underworld to spread fear through all chickens out there in the world. KFC has announced the KFConsole, a development made in partnership with Intel, ASUS, Cooler Master, and Seagate, do deliver a console that "runs better than any other console" - which means bugs relating to chicken movement have been ironed out before release. The chassis is a KFC chicken bucket-shaped one, and is based on Intel's NUC 9 Extreme compute element paired with an unspecified ASUS graphics card - that supports ray tracing.

According to Cooler Master, the console supports 4K gaming, ray tracing, and supports up to 240 Hz displays. A 1 TB NVMe SSD is also inside, obviously. And KFC has found an ingenious, marvelous way to reuse all that wasted TDP that manifests in the form of heat with a purpose-built compartment - the Chicken Chamber), where users can download their chicken wings in the middle of a gaming session to heat them up via the power of the integrated hardware choices. A sure nail in the coffin for the current console wars - Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo must be collectively trying to fly away from this monster (and failing). And I can already hear the collective noise of scalpers rubbing their hands at feeding their pockets, and their mouths as well.

I think I'll just get a regular air-fryer instead. I don't think even an Rtx 3080 with a 10900k is good enough to have crispy chicken. I curious to see the kfcconsole just for the laugh. Anyone remember the 5.25 bay toaster?

Gamer A: I can use my computer to keep my feet warm.
Gamer B: My computer is so powerful you can fry an egg on it.
Gamer C: My computer is more powerful, you can fry chicken with it !

Finally Intel & GPU manufacturers have an excuse for creating 300w or more peak power usage CPU/GPU. Would you like fries with that?

Forget the chicken, throw a Hot Pocket in there. Let it cook while you game for an hour or two, then take it out and snack on it. Replace with a fresh Hot Pocket from the mini-fridge next to the console, and you'll have another Hot Pocket ready when you get hungry again.

This would be excellent with a gaming chair with a built in dumper and cold storage to hold all that Diet Coke.

Do air fryers make food taste good? I read they are horrible... my Dad has been considering getting one though... any tips for us to get good taste out of it?

Fixed that for you.

Something like this just equals greasy CPU's with a roll.

And don't get me started with the BK flame broiled edition CPU coolers........
