Product on Review: Stormforce Onyx 1060
Street Price: £799.99
First Person Shooter games are becoming increasingly popular, year on year, with the recent introduction of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS and Fortnite really pushing things on. Due to this massive surge in player counts, more and more people are seeing the appeal of a keyboard and mouse for such games, which is something you can’t do on a console. In steps Stormforce, with their budget orientated systems, far-outpacing even the Extreme editions of today’s consoles and offering a true keyboard and mouse gaming experience.
The Stormforce Onyx i3 that we’re looking at today features an 8th Generation Intel Core i3 processor, clocked at 4.0GHz, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, 8GB of DDR4 RAM and a 1TB Western Digital Hard Drive. All of which is packaged inside the rather attractive Cooler Master MasterBox 3.1 Lite case.
The Stormforce Onyx i3 comes in at £799.99, around twice the price of the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X; straight away its an uphill battle, but can the appeal of the PC Master Race win through?
We’ll push some games through the system and test benchmarks on the Core i3 8350K CPU to see how it fares. Read on for more.
