CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT review

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The appearance of Intel's E8600 chip leaves CyberPower's Gamer Infinity GT lagging behind the other systems in our chart this month.

Only last month, Intel’s E8500 processor was enough to guarantee chart-topping performance in most of our desktop PC categories. The E8600 now eclipses that chip, leaving the E8500-powered CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT lagging behind. Credit is due to CyberPower, however, for delivering a system that’s almost as fast as the PC Specialist despite using the older CPU.

Neither does gaming performance appear to have become a victim of the CyberPower’s choice of processor, and the ATI Radeon HD 4850 delivers decent performance in most current games. Indeed, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT achieved exactly the same Crysis framerates in our tests as the E8600-based systems using the same graphics card.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT's Raidmax Aztec Silver system case, with its space-age looks and transparent side-panel, should also appeal to gamers. Access to the internals is very simple. There’s a pleasing array of tool-free drive bays and large, quiet fans, one of which is dedicated to cooling the graphics card.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT's 22in Hanns-G monitor is another favourite among system vendors. It may be a budget model, but it offers a good balance between price and performance and comes with dual digital and analogue inputs.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT is covered by a three-year warranty, and both the motherboard and power supply are very energy-efficient. A month ago, it would have fared much better in our charts.
