The Gateway FX6800-11 is a high-end desktop PC designed for gamers to keep up with the higher system requirements of recent PC games. The 6800-11 is the predecessor of the 6800-01e and 6800-09 models and is not due for release until sometime in March, 2009. Not much is known about the exact 6800-11 specifications, however since the MSRP is only $50 more than the 6800-01e there is a big chance the two machines will have nearly identical specs.
The Gateway FX6800-11 will most likely feature an Intel Core I7 processor combined with 6GB DDR3 memory to provide enhanced speed options. The 6800-01e model machine featured an ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card but it is rumored the FX6800-11 will include a more powerful graphics adapter; hence the $50 higher price tag. The FX6800-11 will also most likely feature a 750GB hard drive, 15-in-1 media card reader, a built-in illuminated media control interface, an easy install tool-free chassis, an HDMI port, eSata and 1394 Firewire support, and a Gigabit Lan (10/100/1000).
