of all: the
Ultima arrived in our office perfectly packed. We were actually surprised when
we opened the case, since we found a large, protecting air cushion, which makes all the components support eachother. This
makes dead sure nothing is going to break during shipment.
If you are looking for a powerful high-end gaming desktop, which is
capable of running recent games at 1440p as well as UHD (lower details), the PC Specialist Ultima is a solid choice.
In our tests, the PC Specialist Ultima has proven to be a fast and efficient
The temperatures measured in games and benchmarks are perfectly in line for this
configuration. PC Specialist equipped this system with an SSD, where they installed Windows 8.1 64 Bit and therefore the system boots quickly. Since we received this system before the launch of Windows 10, there is Windows 8.1 installed. All new PCs from PC Specialist are being shipped with Windows 10 pre-installed. We were also happy to find a 2
Terabyte hard drive, which allows for storing quite a few games/files.
PC Specialist is overclocking their Ultima system to a beefy 4.375GHz.
This means that the CPU does its job 25 percent faster than what's standard. In order to keep the CPU cool, there is a Corsair H100i GTX All-in-One watercooler, which is a very good choice for the job.
Now we come to the price for this version of the
, which is available
at PC Specialist for 1'599 GBP or about 2'220 Euro. We configured a PC system using the same components at Geizhals.eu and the price difference between the two configurations is about 200 Euro.
These 200 Euro you pay for an overclocked CPU and a perfectly assembled and
setup system and pre-installed operating system.
The PC Specialist Ultima
is a well perofming gaming PC with good looking design.
