CyberPower’s Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven is the only PC here to combine the fastest CPU with the most powerful graphics card.


CyberPower's Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven is the only PC here to combine the fastest CPU with the most powerful graphics card. Its Core i7 960/Radeon HD 5870 combo results in excellent performance across the board, recording 153 points in WorldBench 6 and some top-notch gaming framerates.

But here's the catch: the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven is expensive at £1,499 but lacks external speakers and a Blu-ray drive. Indeed, this is the only system in the chart that's incapable of playing back Blu-ray movies. And with all the other PC vendors supplying 1.5TB of disk space, the CyberPower's 1TB storage capacity seems a little stingy.

A 24in AOC monitor is provided with the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven. It's a 16:9-format model with a full-HD 1920x1080 resolution and dual inputs. Its thick silver-grey plastic bezel detracts somewhat from the system's looks, although it does include a convenient USB socket on the lower side for hooking up peripherals.

The PC itself looks more impressive: NZXT's Beta system case has imposing looks and comes with a decent black paint job inside and out. The outside is textured, lending the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven a rather more expensive feel. Tool-free drive-bays are provided for easy upgrades and the system is covered by CyberPower's three-year return-to-base warranty as standard.

  • Overall: We give this item 7 of 10 overall

Combining the fastest processor with the most powerful graphics card, the staggeringly fast CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven unsurprisingly has a price tag to match. The lack of speakers and an inability to play back Blu-ray films also leaves a sour taste.

    CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Heaven

    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.

  • 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

    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.
