- The chicken-heating PC is VR-ready and gets up to 240FPS.
When KFC Gaming teased the KFConsole this June, most of us thought it was a joke on the backs of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. To be completely honest, it almost feels like it's still an elaborate joke, but there is a product listing now for the unique gaming PC.
KFC worked with Cooler Master to create the KFConsole, a gaming PC with a built-in chicken chamber. There's no price listing or buy option for the KFConsole at this point, but you can check it out in all of its chicken-heating and gaming glory.
The chicken chamber, and the fact that it's branded with KFC, are the headline features of the KFConsole, but it actually has very respectable specs for gaming. The KFConsole is powered by the Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Computer Element and features PCIe NVMe storage in the form of the Seagate BarraCuda 1TB SSD.
According to its product listing, the KFConsole is VR-ready, supports ray tracing, and gets up to 240FPS.
The gaming PC's chicken chamber takes the airflow and heat generated by the system to keep chicken hot and crispy. To clarify, it's a chicken chamber for heating up chicken that's already been cooked. Even the most powerful gaming PCs shouldn't put out enough heat to actually cook raw chicken, let alone fry it.
Some balk at the idea of a chicken-heating gaming PC ever taking off, but as KFC Gaming points out on Twitter, "It's not meant to take off, we built it with a Chicken Chamber not wings."
