Built around a 34" curved 3440x1440 display, the Alpha 34 is designed with high-end PC hardware in mind. The configuration options let buyers choose among a number of Mini-ITX Skylake motherboards, while the more insane can jump up to a Haswell-E setup. Buyers can choose to keep the CPU cool with a closed-loop liquid cooler, and Haswell-E versions of this system will get one by default.
Desktop CPUs are only part of the story, though. The Alpha 34 also supports full-size graphics cards. As with the CPU selection, buyers can choose from consumer-oriented cards as powerful as a Radeon R9 390X or a GeForce Titan X, or they can go the professional route and run with a FirePro or Quadro. Pricing on the Alpha 34 starts at $1,999 and goes way, way up from there.
