Digital Storm VIRTUE: Intel Haswell-Powered Gaming PC

3 thumbs up
We continued our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran four of the built-in subsystem tests (CPU Arithmetic, Multimedia, Memory Bandwidth, Physical Disks).

Preliminary Testing with SiSoft SANDRA
Synthetic Benchmarks



The VIRTUE came in third behind two other systems, but it should be said that those two systems are loaded with more powerful components. Compared to the others, the Haswell-packing VIRTUE and CyberPowerPC systems were a cut above the rest, particularly in the multimedia test.



There’s a great deal of parity here among the systems in regard to memory and storage, although the VIRTUE is certainly one of the best performers, by the smallest of margins.

Cinebench R11.5 64bit
Content Creation Performance

Maxon's Cinebench R11.5 benchmark is based on Maxon's Cinema 4D software used for 3D content creation chores and tests both the CPU and GPU in separate benchmark runs. On the CPU side, Cinebench renders a photorealistic 3D scene by tapping into up to 64 processing threads (CPU) to process more than 300,000 total polygons, while the GPU benchmark measures graphics performance by manipulating nearly 1 million polygons and huge amounts of textures.



The Cinebench scores are nothing to get too excited about, as the performance deltas between most of the systems running a Core i7-3770K and Core i7-4770K is rather small.

That optical drive looks COMPLETELY out of place there...

I haven't used my optical drive in almost a year for anything whatsoever.

It really is out of place and ugly. Inner beauty is what counts and that machine is got that part down for sure.

With that hardware and service I'm guess its ridiculously expensive!

The build seems really solid, even has a blu-ray player. My only quarrel is the aesthetics of the optical drive don't quite match the sleek/shiny aesthetics of the case. Other then that, It looks really nice

Really awsome choice on the H100i Liquid Cooler. Amazing cooling with that piece of tech!
