Gamer Xtreme XI system
CyberPower has unveiled its latest desktop system, the Gamer Xtreme XI, for gaming or other high performance needs. Although the company leaves almost all of the hardware options open for customization, the standard package features a quad-core Intel Core 2 Extreme processor overclocked to 4GHz at 1600FSB, with 12MB L2 cache. CyberPower claims the overclocking can be used by games that put heavy loads on processing power, or HD video encoding or editing. The EVGA nForce 790i SLI mainboard provides 7.1 channel audio output.
To meet the needs of demanding graphics, a pair of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 1GB PCIe x16 video cards have been integrated. The multi-cored GPUs feature the CUDA architecture, allowing for processing of PhysX graphics or other tasks such as scientific calculations. 4GB of Corsair DDR3 PC 1333 dual channel memory is offered with the standard configuration.
Gamers will appreciate two 64GB 2.5 inch SATA Gaming MLC solid state disks, connected using a RAID-0 array for fast access to information. For data storage, two 500GB SATA-II 3.0GB per second drives are included, running at 7200RPM and offering 16MB cache, also connected through RAID-0.
All of the hardware is protected with a NZXT Khaos full tower case, enclosing dual 1000W power supplies. An LG Blu-Ray/HD-DVD optical drive is also provided. The base price of the Gamer Xtreme XI is $4939, with a long list of different setup options provided from CyberPower.
