Velocity Micro's Raptor Z55 is a very high-performance gaming machine that can tackle pretty much any game on Ultra settings, most in 4K. The overclocked 7700K is impressive and tops our charts except when in direct comparison with X99 CPUs in multi-core applications. The Raptor Z55 is one of the fastest gaming PCs I have tested thus far, and won't let you down in that domain.
Storage and Network Performance
ixChariot Network Throughput:
The Raptor Z55's SSD is the fastest we have tested so far. The Samsung 960 Pro is one of the fastest M.2 NVMe drives on the market, so that isn't much of a surprise. Its HDD is also very quick; I think it uses some caching technology to increase speeds. Network performance is where it should be for a Gbit NIC.
