CyberPower Apollo GT review

Our Rating :
Price when reviewed : £1170

This PC packs in gaming and processor power at the cost of a comprehensive specification


4.5GHz Intel Core i5-3750K, 8GB RAM, N/A display, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit


The Apollo’s angular front panel has a door to conceal the 5 1/4in drive bays, but it can be a little awkward to get closed. On top of the PC are the power switches, two USB3 ports and two USB2 ports, as well as 3.5in headphone and mic ports. At the back of the PC are four USB2 ports and two USB3 ports. There’s also a PS/2 port for older keyboard or mouse connectors, 5.1 analogue surround sound outputs, an optical S/PDIF audio output and the obligatory Gigabit Ethernet port.

CyberPower Apollo GT

This is a without a doubt a fast and distinctive-looking performance gaming PC with brilliant performance in both processor-intensive tasks and 3D gaming. Unfortunately, it’s let down by its high price, relatively poor range of external ports, the disappointing inclusion of a DVD-RW rather than a Blu-ray drive and – in particular – its tiny hard disk. It’s also less that £100 cheaper than the Palicomp Alpha Detonator, which has comparable performance when it comes to processor power, a more powerful graphics card, a Blu-ray reader and a much larger, if slower, 2TB hard disk, making it a better buy.
