"Penguin Computing is pleased to announce the release of the world's first Linux gaming computer. This system is based on the latest high speed multimedia hardware and the most popular commercial games available for Linux bundled together with the Red Hat 6.1 Linux Operating System."

"This is a revolutionary product, designed to bring the emerging Linux game industry together with the world's most reliable Linux computer systems.", said Sam Ockman, President of Penguin Computing."

"At its, core the system runs on the all new AMD Athlon 500 MHz processor. The base system also includes 128 MB RAM, to help speed up the action. For screaming 3D rendering, Penguin Computing has included the 3Dfx Voodoo 3000 16MB video card. To fully appreciate the stereo sound effects and music of today's games, they have included the Sound Blaster PCI128 with the Yamaha YST-MS50 Speaker system. With a 10 GB Hard Drive, there is plenty of room to store games. The high speed CD will allow for smooth viewing of those cut scene videos, and with a 3COM / USR 56K Modem as an option, our customers will be equipped to engage others online. And for those yet to be released flight simulators and space combat simulators, the system includes the Logitech Wingman Extreme Digital Joystick."
