The CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme GXIVR8020A4 uses an RX 580 as a GPU which provides great gaming performance, comparable to the GeForce GTX 1060 while costing much less. It manages to play most AAA games at ultra and at 1440p with great framerates. Battlefield 1 for example never went below 60 FPS at 1440p and ultra-high detail settings. See More
Even though it has a luxuriously large 1TB HDD, it's unfortunately very slow when opening, saving, or moving large files and it's easy to see why. The CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme GXIVR8020A4's HDD has a read speed of 190MB/s and writing speeds of 195MB/s this is quite slow compared to pre-builts that use SSDs capable of hitting read speeds of 500+MB/s and write speeds of 448MB/s.

It goes without saying but the GTX 1070 handles most AAA games perfectly. Most games consistently hit 120+ FPS on high settings at 1080p. On ultra settings, most games average about 70+ FPS with the Witcher 3 for example reaching 82FPS. Like other GPUs that use the NVidia Pascal architecture, the GTX 1070, and by extension the GT62 Dominator Pro also supports VR gaming. See More
This laptop's display is beautiful. It reproduces 105.8% of the sRGB color gamut, beating the average of 91% for laptops at this price. The display is also extremely bright, averaging 301 nits, which means that you can easily take it and play outside during the day and the sun will not give you any trouble. The laptop also comes with a special software from MSI which lets users adjust their screen colour temperature. See More
This laptop's keyboard is the closest thing to a mechanical without it actually being a mechanical keyboard. Keys have a travel distance of 1.9mm and 66 grams of actuation force. It also goes without saying that the keyboard has a backlight that can be turned on and off. See More
The GT62 Dominator manages to straddle the line between elegance and the bulkiness gaming laptops are known for perfectly. On the back it has a pair of glossy red strips embedded into the black, aluminium-brushed case. The red accents on the all-black body are found throughout the laptop but without overdoing it, which helps giving this laptop a sleek look. See More
While from the outside Blade Pro looks like an ordinary 17 inch laptop, it packs serious gaming laptop performance. It is because Razer has equipped this laptop with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and one of the fastest mobile processors you can buy today. It can run almost any modern game in 4K resolution in high or maximum settings at upwards of 30 FPS. See More
The Razer Blade Pro has easily one of the best touchscreen displays that can be found in any laptop. The colors look accurate and vivid, as it covers 185% of the sRGB color gamut. Brightness goes beyond the industry average and can provide a very bright picture. The screen also supports NVIDIA G-Sync that helps eliminate screen tearing and smooths out movement. See More
Razer uses ultra-low profile mechanical switches in the Blade Pro, which replicate full-sized mechanical keyboards. While it certainly makes the familiar, though noisy, clicking noise and is stiffer than a Chiclet keyboard, the travel is still too shallow compared to a regular mechanical keyboard. See More
The Inspiron 5675 uses an RX 580 as a GPU which provides great gaming performance, comparable to the GeForce GTX 1060 while costing much less. It manages to play most AAA games at ultra and at 1440p with great framerates. Battlefield 1 for example never went below 60 FPS at 1440p and ultra-high detail settings. See More
While it's rather easy to open the case (you need to remove four screws), it's hard to feel welcome. Admittedly there's some space to make some expansions, like adding some extra RAM. But the Radeon RX 580 GPU is bolted in with a metal bracket and that requires a bit of extra patience to remove. The bracket itself is perfectly sized for the RX 580 GPU and might not work for a larger graphics card. See More
There's a wide array of ports available on this PC. The back has ix USB-A ports, an Ethernet port, five audio input/output jacks, a pair of PS/2 ports, and two HDMI and DisplayPorts. On the front there are four more USB-A ports, an SD Card reader, a headphone jack, and a single USB-C port. See More
Even though it has a luxuriously large 1TB HDD, it's unfortunately very slow when opening, saving, or moving large files and it's easy to see why. The Inspiron 5675's HDD has a read speed of 190MB/s and writing speeds of 195MB/s this is quite slow compared to pre-builts that use SSDs capable of hitting read speeds of 500+MB/s and write speeds of 448MB/s.

The Dell Inspiron 5675 mixes a gaming rig design with a office-friendly look which surprisingly works. The case is made of metal shrouded in a silvery plastic shell and accented with angled vents that surround almost half of the case itself. Under the grills there's a bright blue light that looks great from all viewing angles. See More
The Inspiron 5675 uses an AMD Ryzen 5 as a CPU which unfortunately falls a bit behind as far as performance goes compared to Intel CPUs around this price. This is reflected even on third-party benchmarks such as the Geekbench score, where the Ryzen 5 scores 3377 points compared to Intel Core i5's 4500 score. All of this means that for day-to-day tasks like web browsing, editing files, etc. is kinda good but could have been better without increasing the price by much (if anything). See More
