First, we will talk about the chicken warmer. Nested in a custom-designed Cooler Master shell, the world’s first built-in chicken warming chamber will use the heat naturally generated by the components to keep your fried chicken warm in between rounds! KFC spokesperson Mark Cheevers was quoted saying the following to the BBC in England “If Sony or Microsoft want any tips on how to engineer a chicken warmer for their next efforts, they’d be welcome to get in touch.”.

One thing is for sure, under the shell it’s not just the chicken warming chamber that the KFConsole has to boast about, it also has some impressive specs too! The console will feature a Nuc9 Extreme Compute processor showing straight away that the chicken warming newbie is certainly nothing to be sniffed at – except when you’ve stuffed it full of succulent KFC wings! It’s not just a powerful processor that this console can boast about, Asus has delivered a graphics card capable of running the latest titles in 4k 240fps which is said to be on par with an RTX 2080 Super – which by the way, will be hot-swapped upgradeable – another world first for a console! When speaking to the BBC in England, KFC spokesperson Mark Cheeverrs said “This machine is capable of running games at top-level specs, all on top of keeping your meal warm for you to enjoy during your gaming experience… What’s not to like? “.
