Intel® Core™ i7 CPU
Process, Architecture, Optimisation. These are the key current aims for Intel with processor improvements for forthcoming CPUs. With Skylake we saw a change over to the 14nm process size, and with the new 7th gen Intel line-up (codename Kaby Lake) Intel have focussed on more efficiency and performance. Not only does the new 7700K provide cooler performance, but there is also a boost to clock speed and turbo has been increased from 4.2 GHZ to 4.5 GHz providing better performance over the previous generation 6700K.
We offer pre-overclocked CPUs on certain machines, resulting in improved performance in CPU-intensive tasks. This would be a moderate overclock that wouldn't have much impact on the lifespan of the CPU, it has been approved by our R&D team and would only be offered with an improved CPU cooler to counter the increase in temperature. There is also the option to remove overclocking, as Core i5 and upwards feature "Turbo Boost" which ramps up clock speeds by default as and when it's called for.
NVIDIA™ GeForce® Graphics
The GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti is NVIDIA’s new flagship gaming GPU, based on the NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture. The latest addition to the ultimate gaming platform, this card is packed with extreme gaming horsepower, next-gen 11 Gbps GDDR5X memory, and a massive 11 GB frame buffer.
Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM
At the heart of Corsair performance RAM modules is cherry picked silicon that has passed stricter tolerances and is able to perform more efficiently at higher frequencies. To increase the thermal efficiency when operating at higher speed, Corsair performance RAM is equipped with an improved cooling coolingsolution, a heatsink that sandwiches the memory module. Another great feature of Corsair gaming RAM is the support for XMP profiles, Extreme Memory Profiles is something we take advantage of in the BIOS to set up the PC with optimal clock speeds and latencies.
250GB Super Fast M.2 SSD + 2TB SSHD
Included is a super fast 250GB M.2 SSD for ultra fast boot times, and speedy read and writes. M.2 is still solid state storage which means it is just as reliable as a typical SSD, but as it runs through the PCI bus it is not limited by the SATA3 interface. M.2 drives are currently some of the fastest storage options available as they are capable of much faster transfer speeds than SATA will allow. With 250GB of capacity you'll be able to install the Operating system, as well as some of your favourite programmes and games. Alongside it is there’s a 2TB hybrid mechanical hard drive for your collection of games and bulky data storage. Not quite as fast as an SSD, but massively faster than a regular HDD, these “in-betweeners” are our pick for value-for-money performance.
Corsair Quality PSU
The RMx series from Corsair are aimed at the enthusiast looking for a Power Supply capable of delivering extremely stable voltage regulation and high efficiency, with the added visual appeal of flat modular cables. The RMx series models are rated 80 Plus Gold, which means that they perform at over 90% efficiency, in other words, these PSUs are not only handy when it comes to your energy bill, but also, because they produce less heat, quieter than less efficient ones. Corsair have opted for a particularly high grade of 105C Japanese capacitors, for smooth power regulation and reliability.
Included is the latest version of Windows 10 Operating System, installed and ready to go! With release of Windows 10, the Start menu is back and Microsoft has managed to satisfy many different types of users - PC gamers, console gamers as well as mobile and tablet users. After listening to feedback from millions of users and taking into account our rapidly evolving usage of technology, the latest version of Windows has had a great response and addresses many issues encountered with previous versions.
