Aria Gladiator Sparta Haswell i5 4670K Nano Overclocked Bundle Review
PC Mark 8
PC Mark 8 is still the new kit on the block and so we've had very little testing with it. So far only the Aria overclocked bundle we're reviewing today and the Cyberpower Infinity Achilles GT have been run through it. Given the Cyberpower came with a heavily overclocked i7-4770K and a nVidia GTX780, then the Sparta Nano bundle is happily giving it a run for it's money. Certainly in your every day tasks it's up to the job.
The last of our system based tests, CineBench is naturally lessened by the loss of the hyperthreading. For CPU intensive tasks the benefits of hyperthreading can't really be overstated, but the Sparta Nano makes a good fist of things, being only half a point behind a stock i7-4770K. On the plus side it attained 126FPS in the OpenGL test, which is one of the highest results we've seen.
