ASRock announces M8 compact gaming rig in collaboration with BMW

BMW and ASRock just announced the new M8 gaming PC, which will debut at Computex next week. The collaboration is ASRock's first rig with a small form factor, though it shares the sharp lines and edgy color palette of the hulking, BMW-designed Thermaltake Level 10 case. An OLED screen sits on the front of the case and displays stats such as fan speed and temperature, and there's a knob for adjusting the fan depending on the game at hand. Interestingly, the M8's semi-transparent side panels are attached magnetically rather than screwed in, so users should have no trouble accessing components. So far, the companies have only shared connectivity specs: 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 are on board, as is a quad-core Creative SoundCore 3D audio processor. We're bound to find out more in Taipei, though, so hang tight.
