CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda review

£999 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

CyberPower’s trademark transparent side panel immediately marks the Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda out as a gaming PC. It comes with plenty of internal illumination and blue component details, colour-co-ordinated with the heatsinks on the motherboard.

CyberPower's trademark transparent side panel immediately marks the Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda out as a gaming PC. It comes with plenty of internal illumination and blue component details, colour-co-ordinated with the heatsinks on the motherboard. It also comes with a cool LCD temperature read-out and fan-speed controller built into the front door of the system case.

Behind this door, you'll find a Blu-ray-compatible DVD drive. The top surface of the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda's case provides a pair of USB ports, along with audio and FireWire connectors - this will prove a convenient placing for PCs stored on the floor.

The Intel Core i7 920 CPU once again delivers a high level of performance, trouncing the Core 2 Duo of Mesh's Whisper 4850 HD. Gaming performance is also very good, thanks to the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda's HD 4870 graphics card.

Despite this being the 512MB version of that card and clocked slightly slower than the 1GB boards, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda performed well in our games tests. Demanding games may need to run with reduced quality settings in order to fit all the required textures into the card's memory, however.

The Asus motherboard provides a trio of 16x PCI Express slots and three empty memory slots for upgrades, although the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda's 600W Storm PSU isn't as beefy as the 750W model fitted by Chillblast.

The 21.6in Hanns-G display is basic, but it has an attractive thin bezel, digital input and tiny concealed speakers. No external speakers are provided, so you'll need to provide your own if you're going to make the most of the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda's Blu-ray drive.

  • CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda review

    CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda

    As the least expensive PC in our chart, CyberPower's Gamer Infinity i7 Andromeda has evidently undergone some skimping on features to achieve a tempting price tag. In a category with no price ceiling, it looks a little lacklustre.

  • CyberPower Infinity i7 Andromeda Elite review

    CyberPower Infinity i7 Andromeda Elite

    Unlike some of the crazy-looking systems we’ve seen, the CyberPower Infinity i7 Andromeda Elite tempers its daring touch of metallic paint and interior blue neon with a degree of visual restraint. You can take the system seriously during Microsoft Office moments too.

  • CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Phoenix (Windows 7 edition) review

    CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Phoenix (Windows 7 edition)

    First submitted two months ago with Windows Vista installed, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Phoenix has had a makeover. And the results are good.

  • CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Galaxy review

    CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Galaxy

    The CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Galaxy is a highly impressive if rather expensive desktop PC.

  • CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Galaxy

    Also based on the Core i7 920, CyberPower’s Gamer Infinity i7 Galaxy is a good performer, if not quite as fast as the Arbico or Chillblast.
