The performance of a gaming PC is highly dependent on the CPU and graphics card installed. Therefore, when choosing a product, these two are often emphasized.
However, when actually moving, there are many unconvincing points, such as the heat dissipation capacity of the radiator is not enough, the performance is not enough, and although the performance is definitely high, it makes a roar like a vacuum cleaner. Regardless of how accurate the specs are, I have to say this is an odd product.
|CPU||Intel® Core™ i9-12900K processor (3.2GHz to 5.20GHz)|
|you||Windows 11 Home 64-bit|
|memory||32GB DDR5-4800MHz (UDIMM) (2 x 16.0GB)|
|storage||512GB SSD, M.2 PCIe-NVMe (with dedicated heatsink)
+ 2TB HDD 7200 RPM
|graphics||NVIDIAR GeForce® RTX™ 3080 LHR 10GB GDDR6X|
|Wireless communication||Bluetooth® + Wi-Fi 6 compatible (IEEE 802.11ax/ac/a/b/g/n compatible) 2×2|
The model I tried this time was a high-end configuration with a Core i9-12900K CPU and a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. Also, it comes with up to 2TB HDD in addition to the 512GB SSD. In addition to being able to store a lot of data like photos and videos, I’m glad there’s plenty of room for games with multiple big titles.
One of the key points in the specs is that DDR5 is used for the memory. I like that we opted for the latest DDR5, which seems to be a high-end product, rather than compromise and go with DDR4 to keep costs down.
In fact, the SSD is also very particular, and the high-speed mode is also used here. We’ll check this speed later in benchmarks.
Beautifully customizable lighting and handy utility “Vantage”
It’s no exaggeration to say that glowing is essential for gaming PCs, and many products are glowing.There are some that only fans will shine to the point of sorry, but
The first thing that surprised me was the sheer number of lighting parts. I list them all, the logo on the front panel, the internal lights, the water block, the rear fan, the front fan (3), and the top fan (2), a total of 6 places (9 parts units). it is.
In addition, the pattern and color of the glow can be finely customized to the user’s taste. You can turn it off if you don’t want it to glow.
This lighting customization is provided as a feature of the comprehensive utility “Vantage”. It can be customized from “Lights” in the lower right corner of the main screen.
Interestingly, the CPU temperature is prepared as a mode. This changes color according to the temperature of the CPU and you can visually see the load on the PC. Although it is my personal preference, I would recommend setting this CPU temperature setting to the water block.
By the way, this Vantage is a very versatile utility that can be used not only for custom lighting but also for general PC maintenance. Let me introduce some of its features.
The appeal of Vantage is that you can easily check PC-related settings and information, such as when you want to view PC settings or check for problems.
