Final Thoughts

 

Testing a full system is difficult and time consuming, but the CyberPower Black Pearl made my job a lot easier. CyberPower chose the best components for the system and put together a well oiled machine that was capable of besting every benchmark score set by this lab to date.

 

Just like the Gamer Xtreme XE system we looked at last month, it would be difficult to order all of the components used in this system and spend less money than the Black Pearl costs on its own. CyberPower does a really good job when it comes to price; the Black Pearl configured as we tested it today came in at 4,499 Dollars. That is still quite a stack of change, but we are on Day 1 of i7 hitting the market. As time passes the cost of both Core i7 and X58 motherboards will decline and CyberPower will be able to include more of their Value Added super special sauce to the mix.

 

Simply put, you can't build a system with better components than our sample Black Pearl. CyberPower has chosen the best of the best, wrapped everything together and put a bow on top. There wasn't a reason to go in and tweak settings, it has already been done. Cable management was already performed and the only thing we had to do was install our software and get started.
