Review: Palicomp Alpha Detonator (page 2)

Introduction and benchmarksThe Palicomp Alpha Detonator is the first fully Ivy Bridge PC through the TechRadar labs, and it's a bit of a beast. You might be getting a little bit of Ivy Bridge - sorry, Intel 3rd Generation Core Microarchitecture - fatigue by now and that's only natural considering the lukewarm response we've given it so far. But bear with us as Palicomp has got in there early with our first example of an Ivy Bridge PC.This Alpha Detonator is being put together as the perfect example of a modern, future-proof, gaming PC. It's been fully specced up to the nines, but it's been put together sensibly with a complete focus on gaming.What does that mean? Well, essentially that means Palicomp has opted for, what we're going to increasingly see as, the real gamer's chip from this new range of Intel processors. That's the Intel Core i5 3570K, and is the only K-series chip in the resolutely quad-core i5 lineup. Palicomp has easily managed to hit 4.7GHz on air-cooling with this chip and that makes it fly.
