CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT power desktop PC review

£1499

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

It’s big, it’s fast and it’s very impressive. The CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT is the most expensive but also by far the fastest gaming PC we tested this month.

It’s big, it’s fast and it’s very impressive. The CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT is the most expensive but also by far the fastest gaming PC we tested this month. With two 1GB Radeon HD 3870 X2 cards, each with two graphics processing units (GPUs), it has a total of four chips.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT is powered by the 3GHz E8400 rather than the faster E8500, but this is a system that’s designed to be overclocked. The first thing you’ll notice is the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT’s sheer size: the stylish CoolerMaster case dwarfs rival systems.

A single latch allows each side panel to be removed, revealing plenty of room for internal engineering and expansion in the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT.

Our CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT review system came with a pair of 250GB drives in a striped Raid configuration for optimal performance. Meanwhile, three large system fans provide excellent internal airflow in the water-cooled CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT runs the 64bit edition of Vista, which means you get to use the full 4GB of RAM (conveniently supplied as two 2GB sticks, leaving room for expansion).

Unsurprisingly, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT comes out well ahead in gaming performance, even when running at stock speed. However, cranking the system up to 3.825GHz saw the Worldbench score soar from a respectable 117 to a massive 136.

The only let-down is the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT's Hannspree monitor. Although it’s good, this isn’t in the same class as the other components.

Verdict

It’s hard to position the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT in a chart filled with far cheaper systems. It’s not for everybody, but those seeking extreme performance will love this amazing PC.
