CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven review

£1,399 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

By far the most impressive-looking PC we've seen this month is CyberPower’s Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven. Finished in stealth black both inside and out, it looks more like a piece of military hardware than a consumer desktop PC.

By far the most impressive-looking PC we've seen this month is CyberPower’s Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven. Finished in stealth black both inside and out, it looks more like a piece of military hardware than a consumer desktop PC.

Twin ATI Radeon HD 4890 graphics cards are paired in a CrossFireX configuration, providing the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven with more graphics processing power than any other system here. We found the Best Buy Chillblast's single-chip HD 5870 to be a better performer in Crysis, but the relative gaming performance of these two systems will depend on a game's CrossFireX support. In Fear, for example, the 4890 combo achieved a much faster result than the 5870.

What this powerful combination doesn't give you is support for DirectX 11.0. This will be necessary for some upcoming games and the DirectCompute 11.0 features in Windows 7, although the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven will still give superb performance on current titles.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven's WorldBench 6 performance is outstanding, scoring a chart-leading 152 points. This achievement is largely down to the machine's 3.2GHz Intel Core i7 960 processor - the fastest of the group.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven is a considerably more powerful system than the slightly cheaper Eclipse in second place, but it lacks some key features. Most notably, it's the only system in this price category to ship with a 22in flat-panel monitor - the others offer 24in or thereabouts. This Digimate model is also unable to display a full-HD image.

Given that neither a Blu-ray drive nor speakers are provided, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven would need yet more money spent on it in order to compete with the multimedia capabilities of the other systems here. It also comes with a single 1TB hard drive, which offers 500GB less capacity than most of the competition and lacks the performance increase that could be gained from a Raid 0 array.

  • Overall: We give this item 7 of 10 overall

On performance alone, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven would find itself higher up the chart. However, with a smaller screen that doesn't offer a full-HD resolution and less storage than the competition, we feel it isn't quite as good an all-round machine as the top two PCs.

    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 Infinity i7 Heaven

    CyberPower's Infinity i7 Heaven is one of the first PCs we've seen in months to use nVidia graphics, offering excellent performance in both general computing tasks and gaming.

  • 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.

  • UPDATE: CyberPower Gamer Infinity Quad GT power desktop PC

    UPDATE: CyberPower Gamer Infinity Quad GT power desktop PC

    Quad-core chips haven't perhaps come of age in the way we might have expected a few months ago. But for the floating voters, the newly trimmed (chopped even) price tag of the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Quad GT could swing the balance in favour of quad-core.
