CyberPower Unleashes the 'Gamer Dragon'

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 2 comments

Last week CyberPower revealed its line of high-definition desktop workstations based on AMD's new Phenom II X4 CPU

CyberPower, known for manufacturing custom gaming machines, notebook systems, and high performance workstations, said that its new Gamer Dragon line of desktop workstations will feature AMD's new Phenom II X4 processor. The Gamer Dragon series will offer three base models: the entry-level Gamer Dragon 8000, the mid-range Gamer Dragon 9000, and the high-end Gamer Dragon CrossFire X Ultimate. Each model in the family can be custom-configured by the end user.

As for standard, across-the-board features, the Gamer Dragon includes AMD's Phenom II X4 CPU 920/940 CPUs, AMD's 790GX motherboard, 4 GB PC6400 DDR2/800 memory, ATi's Radeon GPU, high capacity SATA-II hard drives and Blu-Ray or DVD optical drives, and Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium edition. The entry-level Gamer Dragon 8000 will cost consumers around $805, featuring the AMD Phenom II X4 920 Quad-Core CPU, ATI's Radeon HD 4850, 4 GB PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory, a 500 GB SATA II hard drive, a 20x DVD rewritable drive, and a 16X DVD-Rom drive.

Need more power? CyberPower's mid-range system, the Gamer Dragon  9000, comes packed with AMD's Phenom II X4 920 Quad-Core CPU, Asetek's Liquid Cooling System, 4 GB PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory, a 1 terabyte SATA II hard drive, Radeon’s HD 4870 512 MB video card, a Blu-Ray player, a 20x DVD rewriteable drive, and HD 7.1 onboard sound. Completing the Gamer Dragon 9000 is Microsoft's Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 64-bit Edition and Cooler Master’s new Storm Sniper full tower case. The price of this configuration is $1139.

Not enough gaming juices to spit out those high-resolution Crysis frames? Perhaps the Gamer Dragon CrossFire X Ultimate is the system of choice, filled to the brim with hardware goodness including AMD's Phenom II X4 940 Quad-Core CPU, Asetek's Liquid Cooling System, and a pair of super fast ATI Radeon HD4870 2 GB 16x video cards running CrossFire X mode. The machine also features a Blu-Ray Player, a 20x DVD rewriteable drive, a 12-in-1 Flash Media Reader, all packed into a NZXT Khaos black full tower case with dual 800-watt power supplies and Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 64-bit Edition. The price of this configuration is a whopping $2235... a meaty price for a meaty rig.

CyberPower said that all Gamer Dragon models are available to purchase direct from the online store, customizable with numerous components and monitor options. The company said that systems come with a 3-year limited warranty and free lifetime labor and phone support.

With that said, donations for one of these will be gladly accepted.

    Those first 2 rigs look like pretty good value for the non-builder.
