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.
