We take this slick new box through the paces

Back at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) iBuyPower showed off an intriguing design to us -- Revolt.  The system packs an eye catching case an an unsual graphics card mount that allows the card to sit somewhat flush with motherboard, which in turn allows a rather slender profile for a system with a high end GPU.

Our colleagues over at Anandtech have already done a nice writeup on overall performance of the system.  We got our hands on a Revolt unit of our own and wanted to test in a little different direction.  Tomorrow we'll share the first of our results.

We decided to run our benchmarks in the stock Windows 8 and are currently benchmarking a couple of more recent titles including Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3.  We'll post our first results tomorrow, but for now here's some pics.

Our system includes an Intel Corp. (INTC) i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge) and NVIDIA Corp. (NVDA) GeForce GTX 670 (Kepler)

The system began shipping yesterday and is available direct from iBuyPower.

My machine cost less than that to build.... 3930K, Watercooling, 32GB-2133, 256 Samsung SSD, 2TB WD Black, 7970 GHz Ed, 850w PSU.

Why not just build?

Invest in X79, the IB-E (up to 12 cores) will be released this year I believe.

Yeah, I know I could save a few hundred if I built it myself. A few years ago, I probably would have, just for the fun of integrating a new system. Now, though, it's worth the $300 or so to have someone do it for me and give me a 3 year warranty to go with it! I also REALLY like the idea of a semi-portable compact gaming rig. I have been waiting for YEARS for someone to get it right, and it looks like ibuypower finally did!

Any DIY PC will cost less than one from an OEM, that's beside the point. Some people want easy support and a central warranty.

I've always assembled my PCs and I probably always will, but I don't blame people if they go with an OEM PC as long as it is well made. This Revolt seems pretty good, small-ish form factor with room for good video cards.
