    Re: Scan 3XS Vengeance XTi

    I was looking at those benchmarks and thinking "let's just wait for the power consumption figures".

    Yeh, wasn't disappointed.

    When you can get future proofing, similar performance, cooler running and often a lower price from AMD, you'd be mad in many ways to go Intel. There are definitely reasons to do so, but they are fewer and fewer with each 14nm rehash.

    From a personal perspective, I'd like to see what happens to those gaming results with a 2080 S in the new Intel machine as that would allow a more apples to apples comparison with the AMD CPUs. But that's just me and it's an unreasonable ask.

    88 degrees with a top-notch 360 AIO cooler, and over 400w. AND £3,300
    Gulp.
    Gaming for idiots.

    That cooler, and its hoses coming off the head like that, across the RAM.
    That would mess so bad with my OCD i would be bouncing off walls and sealing in a short time.

    Re: Scan 3XS Vengeance XTi

    For such an expensive and hand built piece of niche market kit I would have expected the visible power cables to be a bit tidier. Also, as the review says itself, performance is good but not exceptional. And that is at the expense of high power demands, high temperatures and lots of money.

    So, I don't agree that "For the PC gaming enthusiast wanting to step up to 4K visuals, this is about as good as it gets".

    No AMD machine using a 2080Ti to compare against???, bit of daft comparison outside of these are various machines you can buy and relative performance.

    if a 2080Ti Verse 2080 S is +15% performance uplift then an AMD rig with one of the Ti's should be on par with the Scan machine.

    ...Plus their re-stocking fee if you have to return! Check the small print!

    Well, it's quite true. They don't say it's sensible, good value or efficient, just that it's the quickest 4k gaming machine available without going to truly absurd lengths. Still a funny line to read after the Hexus 10900k review has a 3300X within 12% across the board at 4k.

    They're reviewing the machine, not the CPU.

    4K is bound to be heavily GPU-bottlenecked. To compare CPU performance in games you really want to push the settings right down and test at 720p or 1080p.

    But they're not testing the CPU. This is a whole system test.
    It would be $400 cheaper with a 3300x and get comparable 4k performance.

    Indeed. That's why I felt it was unreasonable for me to want an apples to apples comparison for my own personal CPU-ego gratification. This is a system review and not a component level review.
