Fancy pants PCs
Quick, name three different boutique system builders. Was CybertronPC among them? Probably not (unless you were swayed by the headline), though the company’s been around since 1997 and boasts that it’s the 15th largest system builder in the U.S. Out of how many, we don’t know, though CybertronPC is attempting to boost its name recognition by launching a luxury line of customizable PCs.
“Already a strong leader offering products that cater to PC users across the spectrum on retail sites such as Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, and Fry’s among others for 19 years, CybertronPC is expanding its growth with the introduction of the CLX brand targeted towards PC gamers looking for the ultimate custom PC that offers an aggressive price to performance options,” CybertronPC said. “This marks a significant milestone for CybertronPC, as it’s the first time the company has launched a fully high end custom performance product line with special options from their Foundry customizations that includes features such as overclocking and liquid cooling.”
Dubbed “CLX” for “CybertronPC Luxury Experience,” the outfit will offer five different categories of systems inspired by the Egyptian mythos and sci-fi genre.
First up is RA, CybertronPC’s new flagship desktop PC line. Buyers can configure a RA system around an Intel’s X99 or Z170 platforms with support for the latest Skylake processors, up to four Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics cards, up to 64GB of RAM, and hard-lined liquid cooling.
If you’re looking to game at 4K, the RA is what you’re after.
Next up is Horus, CybertronPC’s line of mid-tower desktops. It offers the same components as RA, but in a smaller space and with toned down specifications, such as up to two graphics cards instead of four and up to 16GB of RAM instead of 64GB.
Moving on to Scarab, this is a line of mini-ITX desktops that deliver “Goliath performance,” CybertronPC says. Component options will be the same as for the two aforementioned lines, but again, in toned down form such as support for a single graphics card (up to a Titan X) instead of multiple ones.
Overclocking will also be part of the package here, with a base configuration consisting of a closed-loop CPU cooling setup.
For mobile warriors, Osiris is a 17-inch desktop replacement. It supports up to an Intel Core i7-6700K processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics, plus up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM and lots of expandability. You may be tempted to pair it with an external display, as the hardware will likely be overkill for its 1920×1080 panel.
Finally, the Anubis is another gaming laptop line, one that comes in 15.6-inch and 17-inch form factors. These aren’t desktop replacements, in that they measure less than an inch thick and sport mobile parts, such as up to a Core i7-6700HQ CPU and a GeForce GTX 970M GPU
CybertronPC said its new CLX systems will be available in two weeks (countdown timer here) starting at $999.
