Eclipse Titan i795R585 review

£1,329 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Eclipse Computers

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Eclipse’s Titan i795R585 delivers excellent performance and the latest graphics technology for considerably less money than our Best Buy Chillblast.

Eclipse's Titan i795R585 delivers excellent performance and the latest graphics technology for considerably less money than our Best Buy Chillblast desktop PC.

Another system based on the Core i7 950, Eclipse's Titan i795R585 delivers excellent performance and the latest graphics technology for considerably less money than our Best Buy Chillblast. Scoring 150 points in WorldBench 6, the Titan offers plenty of speed - enough for even the most demanding of users.

Like the Chillblast, Eclipse has plumped for a brand-new 58XX-series AMD graphics card - in this case, a less expensive HD 5850. The Titan i795R585's results in our gaming tests lag behind the competition somewhat, but the HD 5850 is still capable of delivering a great gaming experience in most titles. Its support for DirectX 11.0 is a major advantage over the faster HD 4890, offering enhanced graphics and performance in forthcoming games, as well as faster video transcoding.

Also in common with our Best Buy, the Eclipse Titan i795R585 offers three 500GB hard drives with two combined in a Raid 0 array. Such a setup provides a good balance between performance and data security.

The 23.6in Hanns-G monitor is a sleek-looking model with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1920x1080 resolution that perfectly matches the HD resolution of the supplied Blu-ray drive. Unfortunately, no speakers are supplied with the Eclipse Titan i795R585.

The Eclipse Titan i795R585's Enermax system case is smart and sturdily constructed, if not as solid as that of the CyberPower. Tool-free drive bays and a Biostar T-Power X58A motherboard are found inside, with the latter offering two spare x16 PCI Express slots for additional graphics cards and three memory slots for upgrades. If you need FireWire support, you'll have to add it with a plug-in card.
