Uberclok launches with two overclocked game PCs

updated 04:10 pm EDT, Tue September 11, 2007

Uberclok Ion and Reaktor

Offering a new alternative for pre-built gaming PCs, Uberclok today began selling its first desktops for mid-range gamers looking for overclocked performance without performing the speed boost themselves. The Ion and the Reaktor are both based on Antec's high-flow Nine Hundred case that allows the system maker to ramp up clock speeds without overheating the system. The Ion's budget-oriented 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo is boosted to 3.4GHz in stock trim, outperforming many more expensive stock models; the Reaktor's already fast 3GHz Core 2 Duo is pushed even further to 3.7GHz with a faster 1,333MHz bus.

The Ion starts the range at $1,500 with both the slightly slower processor and the choice of either a 320MB or a 640MB GeForce 8800 GTS video card and a stock 250GB disk. Upgrading to the $2,500 Reaktor adds an 8800 GTX, a 500GB hard drive, and a GeForce 8800 GTX with the option of as much as two GeForce 8800 Ultra cards in SLI mode. Both carry 2GB of memory and the option of a Creative X-Fi sound card or a Killer NIC Ethernet card to offload network lag in online games. Ship dates are unavailable and will likely vary from order to order.
