NAMM 2013 - 3rd Gen Orange OPC
Orange Amplification upgrades the Orange Personal Computer, now with 3rd Gen Intel i7 and maximum RAM of 16GB.
This upgrade brings the OPC up to speed with the latest in computing technology, making it a serious and versatile work station.
Orange will be showcasing the latest model of the OPC at their booth in the coming NAMM 2013. It still has the same amp functionality and it retains an array of useful inputs and output ports, only this time featuring a more powerful CPU and faster performance.
The use of 3rd Generation Intel i7 Processor gives this PC/amp hybrid up to twice the HD Media and 3-D graphics capabilities as the previous model.
Aside from making music, the new OPC can deliver great visuals, able to handle mainstream gaming or even HD Video editing. Typical computer tasks like picture and video editing, web surfing, playing high end games and watching movies are now faster, crisper and life like.
Orange also added 16 GB RAM for even more speed and to handle multi-tasking without any noticeable slow down in performance. If that is not enough, you have the option to avail of the latest generation Nvidia 650ti or AMD HD7750 Graphics Card.
Here is the rest of the press release from Orange:
Already described as an ‘affordable guitarists dream’ by Guitar World Magazine and a computer ‘[packed] full of high-performance components’ by CNET, the OPC now has a huge speed boost with the upgraded 3rd gen Ivy Bridge Intel CPUs with the added benefits of built-in studio quality speakers, ultra-low latency (1ms), ¼ jack inputs/outputs and an incredible £500 of recording software already installed and configured. The latest upgrade means the OPC now has more power and speed for a wider range of creative needs from recording, video editing, gaming, music playback and 3D modeling to provide unbeatable value.
The latest upgrade on the OPC follows a succession on world class reviews in 2012 which saw Expert Reviews.com give it a 5 star review, Guitar World awarding the OPC their coveted Gold Award, CNET.com presenting it their editors choice and Stuff magazine describing the OPC as an ace-sounding all-in-one studio crammed into a ‘70s rock icon’!

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
