Aftershock’s Aeon 34 is a sleek AIO machine with a curved, ultra-wide display
Aftershock has announced yet another all-in-one PC for those who want to minimize clutter on their desk. The new Aeon 34 features a curved, ultra-wide 34-inch display and a sleek, minimalist design, so it’s shaping up to be quite the entertainment machine.
Here’s an overview of its specifications:
- 34-inch 3,440 x 1,440-pixel 60Hz display
- Intel Core i5-8400 processor (2.8GHz, 9MB L3 cache)
- 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM
- Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
- 120GB M.2 SSD + 1TB HDD
- Windows 10 Home 64-bit
The 34-inch wide-view panel boasts 98.8 per cent coverage of the sRGB color space and a 1800R curvature for a more immersive viewing experience.
While the 60Hz refresh rate and wide 21:9 aspect ratio does mean that it’s not the best for competitive, twitch-reaction games, it should do nicely for single-player titles that traffic in lush, detailed landscapes.
But it’s biggest strength is probably the fact that it’s fully upgradeable unlike most AIO machines, so you don’t have to worry about getting the most powerful components right from the outset.
The Aeon 34 supports standard desktop components, although you’ll be limited to mini-ITX motherboards. The above configuration ships with an ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac motherboard, which also offers features like onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
However, there’s room for a full-sized graphics card, including up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
The CPU is liquid-cooled as well, which will come in handy if you decide to spring for an overclockable CPU like the Core i7-8700K (3.7GHz, 12MB L3 cache).
Finally, you’ll have the option to customize the Aeon with a range of automobile paints and vinyl car wraps, just like any other Aftershock machine.
The configuration listed here will cost you S$2,584 and is already available to buy on Aftershock’s website.
