This year, Nintendo GameCube turns 20. While part of its claim to fame has always been its compact design, one Reddit user has demonstrated that you can, in fact, squeeze out an entire PC capable of running high-end games in the classic main console.
Although not as popular as some of its successors like the Wii and Switch, Gamecube’s unique design and titles are popular – especially Super Smash Bros.Miley–It has inspired a steadily booming fanbase since its launch in 2001. And intelligently, Modder Cityle has shared pictures of this unique gaming console. On Reddit This week, which was outfitted with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, Ryzen 5 4500u processor, a 2TB Samsung 860 QVO SSD, and 16GB of HyperX DDR4 RAM.

My personal favorite: Cityle spray-painted the original black can-peach pink.
After benchmarking, Cityle indicated that the narrow excavator has no overheating issues. Its temperature remains at about 86 ° F (30 ° C) Idle, and during a full load, the GPU hits around 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 ° C) And CPU around 176 ° F (80 ° C).
The end product is an incredibly clean GameCube that will be hard-pressed to distinguish it from the real thing. Cityle’s too Work on installing a computer for games in it a Sega Dreamcast. As a sucker for nostalgia, I’m all with the trend of moderates who see just how far they are Technology can shrink In classic keyboards. Someone please do a GameBoy pocket after that.
