With the next-gen Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 on the horizon, Origin PC has upgraded the idea of the “hybrid” platform. This started years ago when a version of Xbox 360 was combined with a PC. Celebrating it’s 10th anniversary, Big O, a new “hybrid,” is about to be mass-produced. In simplistic terms, you’ll be able to combine a gaming pc with an Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, or PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, you can’t pair them all and are, in fact, limited to choosing only one console for the hybrid build.
If you’re interested in this nameless “hybrid”, you may also want to know what power will come from the following PC hardware and software:
- It will run on Windows 10 Home
- 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3000
- GeForce GTX 1660 Super will cover the GPU
- 450W Corsair SFX series
- AsRockZ390M Pro4 motherboard
- Intel Core i5-9600k
- Origin Frostbite 120 all in one liquid cooler
- 240GB Corsair Force MP510 M.2 NVMe SSD
But keep in mind that most of those components can be improved, depending on preferences and budget. For example, the Intel Core i5-9600k can be easily replaced up to Intel Core i9-9900K, or an AMD Ryzen 9 3950x if Intel is not your cup of tea. The RAM can be upgraded up to 64GB, and the GeForce GTX 1660 Super can be replaced up to a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or the RTX Titan.
The whole package will come in a Corsair Crystal 280X case, slightly modified so that the console will fit in there with no problems. The original Corsair design has a dual-chamber which encouraged the use of it.
Origin PC said” Play, steam, or record your console gameplay with the PC and capture card inside Big O. Choose how you want to play your games, whether using a single PC display with the Elgato capture card software or using multiple screens to display the PC and console at the same time. With the power of PC and console cross-play, you can even play with a friend locally using Big O”
