CyberPower Infinity Fusion GT review - overclocked gaming PC with high-performance AMD graphics

£1,449 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

CyberPower's Infinity Fusion GT is a mid-priced gaming PC featuring a moderately overclocked processor and high-performance AMD-based graphics. Here's our CyberPower Infinity Fusion GT review.

Carbide 300R System Case

Featuring a 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K processor, overclocked to 4.6GHz, the Infinity Fusion GT PC delivers good application and gaming performance. See all gaming PC reviews. See also: gaming PC buying advice and our latest gaming PC group test.

The processor is cooled by a Corsair H60 CPU sealed-unit liquid cooler which offers slightly higher performance than the H55 found in systems we've tested recently from Chillblast and Yoyotech. It uses a thinner radiator which provides space for its twin fans. See all Power PC reviews.

CyberPower has gone for a high-end AMD graphics card in the form of a Radeon HD 7970, here manufactured by XFX. This card offers slightly faster memory performance than the latter's system, but overall performance was pretty much the same. You'll have no trouble running games at high resolution and with high-quality settings with this card.

The Infinity Fusion GT achieved a fast storage performance, thanks to a pair of 128GB Plextor M5S SSDs configured as a RAID 0 pair. It's worth noting that other PC makers have used a single 256GB version of the same SSD, which measured only fractionally slower and without the added complexity and danger of RAID 0.

These components are clearly visible through the transparent side panel of the Corsair Carbide 300R system case, which also provides plenty of expansion room – and a pair of handy front-facing USB 3.0 ports.

We were disappointed by the selection of mouse and keyboard. The Logitech MK330 wireless combo is a low-cost general-purpose kit offering nothing to the gamer. Serious first-person shooter fans will want to exchange this right away. On the other hand, we were pleased to find a Blu-ray writer included – the only example in this group test.

A smart-looking 23.6in AOC i2367FH monitor is included, with a very thin bezel and great colour reproduction, although it's an IPS model which may disappoint purists who demand the very fastest response times.

CyberPower participates in AMD's “Never Settle Reloaded” promotion which means that the included graphics card entitles you to free copies of Bioshock InfiniteFar Cry 3 and Crysis 3 – games that total about £90 at retail.

The CyberPower Infinity Fusion GT is a mid-priced gaming system with decent performance. It comes with a standard keyboard and mouse rather than specialist gaming peripherals, but unusually features a Blu-ray writer. Its twin SSDs provide very fast storage, but this cheese-paring ultimately adds unnecessary complication.

    CyberPower Infinity Hades GT

    CyberPower has cleverly opted for a cost-effective Core i7 9xx-series CPU with its Infinity Hades GT power desktop PC, leaving cash in the budget for a fast-booting solid-state disk and a Blu-ray drive.

    CyberPower Infinity Achilles GT

    The incredibly fast CyberPower Infinity Achilles GT desktop PC is our first review system to use the new 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-2600K. This processor makes all other contenders appear rather slow.

    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.

    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.
