Nvidia’s PC Gaming Revival Kit aims to reawaken your old PC – TechSpot
It’s not uncommon for online retailers to offer barebones PC packages for those putting together a new system. What you won’t see all that often, however, is a purpose-built bundle like the PC Gaming Revival Kit that recently cropped up from Nvidia.
First spotted by Videocardz.com in Spanish-speaking countries, Nvidia’s curious kit includes an MSI GTX 1060 3GT OC graphics card, a 240GB Corsair Force Series LE 240 solid state drive and a Corsair CX450M 80 PLUS Bronze power supply (450W) as well as a code for a digital copy of Gears of War 4 and a t-shirt.
The kit is reportedly priced at €399, or around $415. Tallying up the individual components on Newegg comes up to $472.13 before shipping which makes this a decent deal assuming that you were already planning on purchasing similar hardware.
It’s unclear if Nvidia is planning on offering the kit in other markets or if there will be multiple offerings with varying levels of hardware.
The timing is also of interest as it might not be a coincidence that this is just now surfacing in the holiday timeframe. It’s entirely plausible that Nvidia may be going after less tech-savvy shoppers looking to upgrade aging manufactured PCs that likely lack a discrete graphics card and flash-based storage.
