Velocity Micro Raptor Signature Edition Review

29 April 2011
  • Summary: If you’re someone who regularly uses a video editor, encoder, 3D modeling app, engineering app, or another workstation-level app, the hexa-core LGA1366 is worth the stretch. However, for all others, a quad-core Sandy Bridge is simply too much of a bargain to ignore. Despite this, we won’t rob Velocity Micro of its deserved kudos. The system is fast, stable, and can hang with the best boxes.
  • Pros: Hexa-core performance; tri-SLI ready.
  • Cons: Pricey; understated looks.

Fridge Case Cools Jets on Speed-Burner Gaming PC

Wired
20 October 2008
  • Excerpt: The Signature Edition Raptor has only a basic 3.0-GHz CPU, but it’s overclocked and swaddled in an electric refrigeration watercooler to reach a gnarly 4.28 GHz. Combine that with the three top-shelf Nvidia GeForce GTX 280 videocards running like a pack of frame-rate-rabid dogs and you’ve got the fastest gaming PC in our entire roundup. The case shape is uninspired — OK, it borders on tacky, what with a window that glows like a blue slushy.
  • Pros: Balls-out speed from the three graphics cards running in tandem. Cheap, thanks to a midrange processor overclocked to atmospheric performance levels.
  • Cons: Front-mounted USB and audio ports are too low to be very useful. Hard-to-open case looks like it was pulled off a generic gaming PC and assaulted with a BeDazzler. Chip manufacturer Intel will not guarantee its processor’s longevity when overclocked, so cross your fingers. Comes with only 2 GB of RAM.

  • Excerpt: You might have come across laptops and PCs that come with familiar names like HP, Sony or Panasonic. These names are so common that, you can predict the product hearing the name.
