At first look many will notice the lack of processing power like I did but the graphical performance is top notch. Their tagline "Fusion is the future" is something I believe to be very true. Now we wait for a response from Intel; hold onto your hats ladies and gentlemen this is going to be good.

They must have high hopes for the A series platform to release a system so soon targeted at gamers.

Seems strange to go for this for a gaming desktop instead of Bulldozer + discrete 6xxx. I don't even think the price difference is that large either. For a laptop or everyday use desktop sure, current fusion chips are great. It's just that the GPU cores and the CPU core is pretty oudated. Gaming desktops with fusion should only start with Trinity in my opinion.

That didn't take long at all,.....Smile

I'm planning on building one of these A-8 systems in a week or two, just to check it out and see for myself.

As for CyberPower, I have first hand knowledge of the quality that this company builds into it's PC's. If you don't like to build your own,....buy one from them and you'll be impressed with it. The attention to the little details was perfect on mine. The cable routing was stellar too.

From the write-up: "When combined with the new features of the A-series platform and the latest GPU technology from AMD or NVIDIA, the Gamer Ultra gaming PC series has all the horsepower and features to tackle anything."

So yeah, they're pairing it with discrete cards  and using the onboard GPU to accelerate whatever card that you choose to add. Of course, Bulldozer would be more compelling if it was released already, but it's not. This just may be a good entry level way to game for some folks.

BTW: That second case is Fugly, Ugly, and Bugly!          Yech!.

Just remember that you need to use an AMD card to crossfire with the onboard GPU. Most reviews I've seen are getting nice results adding in a 6670. At this time, this works only with DX 10 and DX 11 titles, and not all of them either as the driver is still immature.

Damn!

Integrated GPU, and its the latest generation of AMD graphics!

Any comparison of what the integrated GPU would compare to in a Discrete Card?

Seems to on the level of a 5570 or so.

Don't buy from this company. If you have any problems with this your computer this company will do everything they can to get out of helping you. My friend bought a computer from them, and they computer arrived broken. Not only did they make him pay to have it shipped for repair, but it arrived broken a second time. DO NOT BUY FROM THESE GUYS. Any money you save with going with them will quickly be gone.
