Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally as the Weeknd has shown off via twitter post his brand new gaming PC. Abel is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.
He is noted for his versatility in vocal style, music production, and eccentric presentation, the Weeknd is often cited as an influence to contemporary music, as well as by other artists. He has been considered as one of the biggest names in music out there but it turns out he is also an avid gamer. On March 30th, a video of the build for the weeknd’s gaming PC was shared by Arpit Manak of Paradox Customs on Twitter who has been tasked with assembling the mighty beast. He shared a video of the process as well as the list of specs. He captioned his tweet: “A Dream come true… Built a Gaming PC for theweeknd.” His gaming PC was stacked with over $8,000 of the best hardware out there. At the center of it all is an AMD Ryzen Processor which costs $700 and a $3,000 EVGA RTX 3090 graphics card that’s capable of running Red Dead Redemption on ultra settings.
The PC looks just as good in person as the specs do on paper, with an RGB color scheme that recalls The Weeknd’s memorable halftime show performance at the 2021 Super Bowl. It is unknown whether he will be streamed on Twitch or YouTube but still, his PC is as good as you can get these days.
