AT-FX Unleashed PCFormat Gold Award Winning Gaming System Issue 235 Jan 2010

AT-FX Unleashed PCFormat Gold Award Winning Gaming System Issue 235 Jan 2010

This Unleashed rig from AdvanceTec takes the random nature of what you can get from your chips out of the equation, doing all the hard work for you.

You see, from the quad-cores at the top of the Phenom II CPU tree down to the low-end, dual-cores, AMD essentially use the same chips. Sometimes particular cores are locked down for a reason, such as faulty/ corrupt silicon, but sometimes this is done just to create dual-or triple-core chips.

This means that in this particular CPU lottery you could end up picking a dual-core CPU and find yourself with a shiny quad-core chip lurking under the heat-dissipation plate.

What AdvanceTec has done is to handpick the processors and the ones which can be unlocked are then slotted into its Unleashed series. The is a slight premium in terms of the labour charge, but to get an equivalent out-of-the-box quad-core into this rig would cost you close to £70 more.

Here you've got a chip running with all four cores unlocked and all running stably at 3.1GHz. AdvanceTec's technical advisor assured us he could have overclocked the chip too if only one core had been unlocked. Read the Full review...

AT-FX Dragon PCFormat Gold Award Winning Gaming System Issue 229 Jul 2009

AT-FX Dragon PCFormat Gold Award Winning Gaming System Issue 229 Jul 2009

You'll need to run Crysis on a 30-incher to slay this gaming beast

Every month we see machines crossing our desks delivering fantastic gaming performance.

That's all well and good if you're an oligarch or third-world dictator, but for the rest of us, any machine north of a grand is out of our budget.

Even at £650, the AT-FX Dragon is pushing it a little, but when you're getting this performance in a sub- £1,000 rig, you're laughing.

You see, the combination of happily overclocked CPU and quality GPU makes this gaming rig dangerously close, in performance terms, to machines twice the price.

Granted, it's dropping frames on £1,000+ rigs, but so long as you're batting above 30fps on full settings at 1680x1050 and 1920x1080, then what's 5fps difference? Read the Full review...

AT-FX VENTO TOTAL PC Gaming Editors Choice Award Issue 21 16/06/2009

AT-FX VENTO TOTAL PC Gaming Editors Choice Award Issue 21 16/06/2009

AdvanceTec has surprised us all by managing to present a high-end gaming PC at a near entry-level price point.

The 2.8GHz Phenom II X3 inside AdvanceTec’s ATFX Vento system makes for some interesting benchmark results – but then, it’s a rather interesting processor. On the one hand, its three-core design shows weakness in video manipulation and 3D rendering by turning out noticeably slower results than the technically similar Medion Erazer, which utilises Intel’s entrylevel Core i7 CPU.

It’s no great surprise that three single-threaded cores would be at a disadvantage against four multithreaded cores, but that’s not true of all benchmarks.

While we were fully expecting the same results from our real-world gaming benchmarks – the frame rate scores most of us are really interested in when we turn to these pages – it actually managed to wipe the floor with the Erazer and even give other Core i7 systems well outside its price range a run for their money.

AT-FX Skeleton PCFormat Gold Award Winning System Issue 225 Apr 200

AT-FX Skeleton PCFormat Gold Award Winning System Issue 225 Apr 200

Components so capable you'll want to caress them
Components so capable you'll want to caress them

Unsurprisingly for a rig containing three humungous graphics cards, it's neither small nor light, with all the components shoved into a Coolermaster Cosmos case like big rectangular sardines in a designer tin.

Naturally there are questions to be asked: the Skeleton, by its nature, should be about starting from scratch and rolling your own. Sold fully set up, all it really has left to boast about is its gimmicky shape. Its huge footprint means it’s something of a desk hog if you’re just simply wanting a new PC.

The insides aren’t even that remarkable (bar a few fancy LEDs scattered around the place), but we will give Advancetec credit where it’s due: they’re the sort of components you’ll want your chums to notice. Centrally, there’s a Core i7 920, an absolutely roaring processor at the top of its game; the phenomenal Zotac GeForce 295 GTX fills a PCIe slot, tearing through gaming graphics with some degree of nonchalance; and 3GB of Corsair’s finest RAM fill the triple-channel slots.

This is unquestionably the gaming PC you want to get your hands on. Read the Full review...

AT-FX Triple SLI PCPlus Perfromance Award Winning System Issue 268 May 2008

AT-FX Triple SLI PCPlus Perfromance Award Winning System Issue 268 May 2008

Triple SLI powerhouse
Until now, a system with triple-SLI pre-installed has been a dream - theoretically possible, but never actually seen in the wild.

That is, until the arrival of Advance Tec's new machine, comprising no fewer than three beefy BFG 8800GTX graphics cards.

Unsurprisingly for a rig containing three humungous graphics cards, it's neither small nor light, with all the components shoved into a Coolermaster Cosmos case like big rectangular sardines in a designer tin.

High Quality Gaming
The build quality of the whole thing is mightily imressive, and in little danger of overheating. The case looks the part, and barely a whisper is heard thanks to the Coolermaster's neat acoustic design. Like any rational being, the first thing we did was to run Crysis at maximum resolution. It struggles at the highest texture rates, but performs very well with medium settings - and still looked so real we began booking tickets back from the South China Seas.

World in Conflict also performs incredibly at high resolution and maximum detail, with the frame rate staying well into double figures. But the cynic amongst us (Alan) suggested that we find out just how much of a difference the triple-SLI setup really makes. Read the Full review...

AT-FX Ultimate PCFormat Gold Award Winning System Issue 200 Apr 2007

AT-FX Ultimate PCFormat Gold Award Winning System Issue 200 Apr 2007

Sexy, Fast, and affordable, But enough about us...

So then: Vista is here. And was it worth all the fuss, hype, hopes and the fears? Well, yes and no. It's easy on the eye. The Aero Glass thing is sweet. But there's been a lot of gabber about how many of your resources it uses, and that can't be a good thing, can it? Here's the deal: with today's technology, it just doesn't matter.

This rig from system-builders Advancetec comes pre-installed with Vista, and its gaming abilities simply aren't in question. Knocking through Company of Heroes in 1680 x 1050 at top settings, you'll see an awesome return of 86fps. Not to be sniffed at, that. Likewise, Oblivion breezes by at ultra settings with HDR at 46fps. Admittedly, this beast is touting the mighty GeForce 8800GTX, Nvidia's high-end DX10-ready offering, so frankly, you'd expect it to perform pretty well.

But with these demanding games as benchmarks, we're confident it'll run everything else around at the moment at a glorious framerate. And let's not forget, DX10's on the way... this PC will be ready to rock, straight from the box, with the likes of Bioshock and Alan Wake.
