In what's essentially a very, very early build of Star Citizen here at NVIDIA's Montreal 2013 event, we've gotten the opportunity to get up-close and hands-on with the likes of 4K output. This game isn't out on the market yet - it's still rolling in funding cash, in fact, having just reached a $23 million dollar point this week. We've found this game rolling out on a massively powerful dual-card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titans, as it were) gaming build from Maingear - the same we saw yesterday kicking out the jams with Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. Here we're also seeing some fabulous NVIDIA-pushed next-generation development taking full effect as well.

MAINGEAR Potenza Review

MAINGEAR Potenza Review

It's time to take a peek at the MAINGEAR Potenza, a desktop gaming machine that's small enough to fit under your desk if you wish, or sit right up out in the open with its powerful innards hidden by a perfectly stripped-down black and red outer metal body made of anodized aluminum with a steel frame inside. The unit we've got here utilizes the fabulous GeForce GTX 660 Ti for graphics, cutting the cost of the final build while it keeps with the Kepler power NVIDIA is known for.
