CyberPower’s Infinity i3 Apollo desktop PC is sold with a dual-core Core i3-530 processor overclocked to 3.4GHz, but at stock speeds it lags behind the competition.
CyberPower’s Infinity i3 Apollo desktop PC is built around a dual-core Core i3-530 processor. CyberPower sells this system with the CPU overclocked to 3.4GHz, resulting in a 138-point score in our WorldBench 6 test. However, we’re concerned only with this chip’s stock speeds: at 2.93GHz, its 123-point tally lags somewhat behind the competition.
Even when overclocked, it’s possible to find an unclocked machine with similar bench performance at the same price as the CyberPower Infinity i3 Apollo desktop PC – look to the Eclipse Matrix, for example.
The CyberPower Infinity i3 Apollo desktop PC's MSI motherboard doesn’t offer USB 3.0 support and provides limited expansion potential with only a pair of PCI Express 1x slots and a single PCI slot free.
Don’t rule out the CyberPower Infinity i3 Apollo desktop PC yet, however. The cash saved on a cheaper processor has enabled the inclusion of a whopping 1TB of storage and the largest monitor here, at 23.6in. The HKC offers a full-HD resolution, making it a great choice for watching films or playing games. Its larger pixel pitch also improves text readability.
