KFConsole is actual; Data on technical information, value and publication date
Keep your gameplay (and your chicken) crispy!
There has never been a state-of-the-art console in the history of gaming that will keep your roast chicken crispy and warm. Until now.
After weeks of promises (and the occasional delay that CD Projekt Red and Cyberpunk 2077) Kentucky Fried Chicken did well from the first glance at their KFConsole. Fans of the slightly skewed fast food marketing content at @KFCGaming felt this was all a well-made joke until the gaming rig / chicken warmer itself was revealed last night. Some may still be skeptical and rightly so. However, the fact that Cooler Master is involved in the design (or at least the joke) gives the new console a lot of credibility.
Check out the reveal video for the KFConsole here:
Please visit the Cooler Master KFConsole page for more information. Here is a breakdown of the rig’s specs and potential price:
Cooler Master’s KFConsole promises “the latest titles in a breathtaking 4k, 240fps”.
The company’s mod team, led by Swedish artisan “Timpelay”, is responsible for this beauty, including:
Chassis: Custom-made NC100 by Cooler Master (approx. 200 USD)
Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Compute Element: A PCIe-based module with a 9th generation Intel chip that basically contains multiple components in one easy-to-use container (about $ 1,000).
GPU: An unknown Asus RTX-supported graphics card in the “hot-swappable GPU slot” of the rig (approx. 250-500 US dollars)
SSD: Two (2) Seagate Barracuda / Firecuda 1 TB SSD (approximately $ 200)
VR-ready with ray tracing technology, 240 FPS with 240 Hz output and games in 4K quality

Regardless of what the performance actually looks like, the KFConsole will be the first (and probably only) video game player with a built-in chicken warmer: “[T]he patented the henhouse. Using the system’s natural heat and airflow system, you can now focus on your gameplay and enjoy hot, crispy chicken between rounds. “One wonders if this way the Cooler Master and KFC can bypass the cooling problems of the hot technology in this rig. It remains to be seen if you need a piece of chicken in the chamber to make sure everything runs cool.”
You’ve probably noticed that there is no mention of a CD drive in this thing, so it’s likely similar to the Sony and Microsoft cousins who only use digital consoles. But the fact that the KFConsole contains a number of easily interchangeable components (including the chicken) actually gives the off-brand platform a leg up (or is it a drumstick?), Though it does so at a potential speculative price of around US $ 2,000 -Dollar being a limited offer this promises to be more of a collectible item than an ordinary console.

Mark Cheevers, Head of PR and Social Media at KFC UK & Ireland, had this to say in a press release:
“This machine is capable of running games at the highest level, in addition to keeping your food warm so you can enjoy it during your gaming experience. What’s not to like? When Sony or Microsoft has tips on device development wish Hühnerkammer for their efforts next time, they would like to get in touch. ”
As CNN reported, “Intel said it had nothing to add to the details posted by Cooler Master or KFC, and did not comment on prices or release dates when CNN contacted them. KFC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.” Stay tuned!
