The PCO Group Intel I7 Gaming PC

Sandra & SuperPi

SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
 
 
 
 

SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers as it's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. A test of 8 million itterations was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest times removed from the results and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 

 
Cinebench
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to guage the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 
Results Observation

The PC has output some solid numbers though our first set of tests. Multi-threaded benchmarks really shining, showing what the I7 can do with a bit extra oomph behind it. The single threaded SuperPi showing some, while not jaw dropping, competent figures coming in at just under 11 seconds on a 1M test. The Cinebench results looking impressive also, with the multi core test standing out like a sore thumb once again.

Nice review. Appauling that they leave all of the settings on auto and let that poor CPU hit 100°c!

Looks fairly tidy to me for a PC build from a company so, well done there! Quote

That 100C is criminal. The sort of people who buy a prebuilt computer generally won't know them back to front, so won't bother checking the bios or CPU temps, leaving them with a smoking pile of silicon in next to no time.Quote

Fully agreed. It's shocking!

Yes, Sleekit, it is a lot more fun when you build it yourself! Although, unfortunately there are many people that do not have the confidence to do it as they're scared it won't work. Also, if they have limited knowledge, they will not be able to troubleshoot if it doesn't POST for example.Quote

I think there are also an increasing number of people who probably could (and did back in the late 90s) but now reckon that people like dell will give you something for the same money...this is very sad Quote
