GameSetWatch has further details on what's being called "The Warhead PC," saying this machine designed specifically for Crysis Warhead will be officially announced next week and the PC itself should be available when Crysis Warhead ships on September 16. The system is built around an Intel E7300 CPU and an NVIDIA 9800GT graphics card, and it was designed by Crytek with the goal of being able to run their upcoming shooter sequel at 30 FPS while costing no more than $700 USD. After the box was designed, it was used to benchmark the game, and they made sure to optimize any areas where performance lagged. As to why this is all going on, they quote Crysis franchise producer Bernd Diemer saying: "EAís not getting into the hardware business, and Crytek isnít either. The biggest thing for us is convenience. We want to make PC gaming convenient." Thanks Mike Martinez and Kotaku.
