The Eclipse Matrix i567r577 offers the highest CPU clock speed in the chart, but this desktop PC has more to offer still, running at 3.73GHz with its turbo boost technology in gear.
Based on Intel’s dual-core Core i5-670 running at 3.46GHz, the Eclipse Matrix i567r577 offers the highest CPU clock speed in the chart. Its WorldBench 6 overall-speed score is impressive at 135 points, but this desktop PC has more to offer still, running at 3.73GHz with its turbo boost technology in gear.
Similarly priced to the Core i7-920, however, the Core i5-670 leaves less cash in the budget for other components. Eclipse has been unable to include external speakers in the Eclipse Matrix i567r577 desktop PC's specification, and its 500GB hard drive looks meagre in comparison to the 1TB models provided by two of its rivals.
The Hanns-G HH222DPB supplied with the Eclipse Matrix i567r577 desktop PC isn’t the only 22in monitor here, but it is the only screen that can’t carry a full-HD image. The HH222DPB offers 1680x1050 natively.
However, unlike Arbico, Eclipse hasn’t skimped on the =Matrix i567r577 desktop PC's graphics card. You’ll get the same ATI Radeon HD 5770 and 1GB of video memory as supplied with the rest of the competition, allowing for excellent gaming results even if you can’t play them at such high resolutions.
The ASRock motherboard doesn’t support USB 3.0 or SATA 6Gbps, but its pair of PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (one of which is restricted to x4 speed) enable you to add a second graphics card to the Eclipse Matrix i567r577 desktop PC.
