Gamer Dragon Series
CyberPower has released its Gamer Dragon series, a set of three custom-built high definition towers based on AMD's newer Phenom II X4 CPU. The complete group consists of a Gamer Dragon 8000 and 9000, and the Gamer Dragon CrossFire X Ultimate. Basic features of all three Gamer Dragon models include SATA II hard drives, an ATI Radeon HD video graphic card, a dual Blu-Ray and DVD drive setup for both the 9000 and CrossFire X series, or DVD drives alone for the 8000.
The Gamer Dragon 8000 is the least powerful of the series, providing a 2.8GHz Phenom II X4, an ATI Radeon HD 4850 video card, and a 500GB hard drive. For memory, the tower comes with 4GB DDR2 RAM. The Gamer Dragon 9000 uses the same 4GB RAM as the 8000 series but offers a 1TB hard drive and a faster Radeon HD 4870 512MB video card. The Gamer Dragon CrossFire X Ultimate offers the most raw CPU power in the set and gets a 3GHz Phenom II X4. It also comes complete with a pair of ATI Radeon HD 4870 2GB video cards, a 12-in-1 card reader, and the same dual-drive Blu-ray and 20x DVD support as the 9000 model.
The Gamer Dragon series can be found on the company's website and is priced at $800 for the 8000, $1,140 for the 9000, and $2,240 for the CrossFire X.
