    It's a shame that the HDD couldn't be mounted with the label outwards and that the PSU has to be mounted upside down, in a Corsair case. After all, they have decided to make everything visible.

    Also, is 16GB of RAM really enough for a £3000 PC? I'd expect all 4 banks to be filled with 8GB sticks, for the extra £90 that it would cost, at retail.

    Deus Ex is a beast of a game.

    Marketshare matters! Game on Intel IGPs! Makes gaming a unique experience!

    Nice to see Hexus not pulling punches and showing how near-useless SLI (and CF) is at the moment.

    Re: Scan 3XS Z270 Vengeance SLI

    Lol..£3K, 5Ghz CPU, 1080SLI..and the performance of the latest Deus Ex game is still a joke.

    How did they make it run so bad...oh yes, because you're still using that horribly CPU bound Gfx engine which makes hardly any use of more than 2 cores, that has been crippling your games for nearly 5yrs now.

    Get with it Ubisoft, and start using a more up to date, properly multi threaded engine, for all our sakes.

    Meanwhile, fans of the Civ series are watching as a team of devs - who are happy to throw every new API feature they can get at their games - implements DX12 for turn-based simulation and still can't get a pleasing level of performance out of it.

    Are the new APIs just too hard for gamedevs to grasp right now? Even studios I'd consider competent are struggling with new stuff. Only Vulkan seems to buck this trend.

    Its not just UBISoft.

    ALL devs need to adapt to mGPU and low-level APIs. It's probably going to take a few years

    To be fair, I don't think the target market for this machine are the frugal.

    I had to stop playing Civ 6 because turn times are so bad. I even upgraded my CPU specifically for that game, and while it slashed 75% off the loading times, turn times were barely improved for early game.

    I actually think it has more to do with the quick combat/movement implementation - even with it on, it still plays animations. If they enabled true quick combat/movement, turn times would be quicker
