Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

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'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’s Infinity i7 Heaven is one of four PCs in the chart to supply a 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 930 processor. It achieves excellent performance results, despite not being matched with an SSD. The CyberPower instead takes its speed boost from a pair of 1TB drives configured in a Raid 0 array, while a third 500GB drive is provided for backups.

The CyberPower Infinity i7 Heaven took the lead in WorldBench 6, scoring 144 points. This is noticeably quicker than competing PCs using the same CPU, and may have something to do with the fact that this is the first machine using nVidia graphics we’ve seen in months.

The 1.5GB GeForce GTX 480 is nVidia’s flagship DirectX 11.0 graphics card and the company’s answer to the ATI Radeon HD 5870. In most cases, the GTX 480 equals or betters the performance of ATI’s product.

Unlike the three systems placed above the Heaven in the chart, the CyberPower Infinity i7 Heaven's MSI motherboard doesn’t offer USB 3.0 and 6Gbps SATA support. Nonetheless, it’s clearly capable of excellent performance.

Three PCI Express x16 slots are provided, enabling you to add multiple graphics cards in scalable link interface (SLI) mode to the CyberPower Infinity i7 Heaven.

You also get a Blu-ray drive and a 24in full-HD BenQ G2420HDBL monitor. A Creative X-Fi XtremeAudio 24 sound card completes the multimedia credentials of the superb CyberPower Infinity i7 Heaven.

    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 Infinity White Knight review

    CyberPower Infinity White Knight

    The striking all-white Infinity White Knight desktop PC from CyberPower immediately grabbed our attention – not only because of its dazzling paint job, but also with its sheer size.

  • CyberPower Infinity i7 Phoenix review

    CyberPower Infinity i7 Phoenix

    Despite supplying one of the cheapest systems in the chart, CyberPower has been able to specify a 2.8GHz Intel Core i7-930 processor and a premium Asus X58-chipset motherboard for its Infinity i7 Phoenix desktop PC. The compromises have all been made elsewhere.
