CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR General Performance Testing


The CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR with the Intel Core i5-6402P processor and XFX Radeon RX 480 4GB graphics card scored 123.34 FPS on the OpenGL benchmark, 538 points on the multi-core CPU test and 146 points on the single-core CPU test.


We didn’t do any DirectX 12 game benchmarking, so we ran the 3DMark Time Spy DX12 benchmark test. The CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR scored 3,704 points. If you looked closely and see we got a validation warning it is because the processor is not recognized by Futuremarks SystemInfo.


Worried about OpenCL performance or maybe you’ll be using this gaming system for some coding projects at school? We ran LuxMark v3.1, a very popular OpenCL cross-platform benchmark tool and found that we got a score of 14,373 when rendering the Luxball scene. A very solid score from a PC that costs under $720!


Ripping moves or creating digital content is a common occurrence these days, so we ran Handbrake 0.10.5 and used the Big Buck Bunny 1080P 60 FPS movie as our test file. We were able to complete the transcode with an average speed of 40.0 FPS! Not bad performance again from a PC in this price range as you need remember this is a quad-core processor without hyper-threading.


AIDA64 v5.75 beta showed that the dual channel 2133MHz DDR4 memory had 13-13-13 2T timings and was capable of 30,985 MB/s read and 31,510 MB/s write speeds with a latency of 59.5 ns. The copy test bandwidth was found to be 27,873 MB/s. These are respectable scores for an 8GB (2x4GB) 2133MHz DDR4 memory kit.



The benchmark included in CPU-Z showed we had a single thread performance score of 1683 and a multi-thread performance score of 6227.


CipherShed v0.7.4.0 shows that the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR had a mean score of 2.6GB/s on the AES Encryption test.


We ran the JetStream v1.1 JavaSctipt on Google Chrome 50 and found an overall score of 195.77.


The 7-Zip v16.02 benchmark test showed that the Intel Core i5-6401P Processor in this system had a total rating of 13871 MIPS and handled compression tasks well.


A quick run of CrystalDiskMark v5.1.2 showed the performance of the Toshiba 1TB 7,200 RPM Hard Disk Drive (HDD) was pretty solid. Sequential read speed to be 179.9 MB/s and the sequential write speed was 164.8 MB/s. The Random 4K read speed was 0.4 MB/s and the 4K random write speed was 0.6 MB/s. It would have been nice to have an SSD in this system, but that would have drastically increased the cost of the system and having 1TB of storage space is nice as you can install tons of games.


Speaking of games, when downloading and installing games through Steam we found that the disk drive was running at 100%. The system does feel a little sluggish when the disk is at 100% use, but you just need to remember this is budget friendly gaming PC that has a rotational hard drive.


Looking at boot times you’ll see this system takes roughly 54 seconds to boot to the desktop. We ran this test after we installed gaming applications like Steam, Origin and as that is what most folks will be installing as soon as they get this PC!

Let’s take a look at power consumption and CPU temperatures on the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR.

    What is the weight of the pc because I want to know the Shiping cost in my country

  • lonemuffin

    i have a few questions
    1. On amazon it says that it has a i5-7400, so will they change the processor due to availability reasons or will that always stay the same no matter what
    2. Is it possible to upgrade to a nividia 1070

  • Mark

    This was my first PC but. I always went with the laptops but I wanted something that I could upgrade down the line. I didn’t do enough research into this computer and if Cyberpowerpc can’t fix it and send it back I will be disappointed. The good news is that I fell in love with it immediately. Of course, ignorance is bliss. I didn’t know about the power supply. I did the power supply test after it crashed and wouldn’t turn on. The power supply is still working but the tech support says that the motherboard itself is fried. Was this caused by the power supply? Will a Corsair 750 be an improvement? One month without a PC….. I’m going crazy and I just want to make sure that it works and stays working when I get it back. Help?!?

  • Spacecreepkitan

    yeah, that power supply WILL fail, if you buy this system do yourself a favor and fit it with a namebrand psu; you can use the one the system ships with as a nifty doorstop or paperweight, the possibilities are practically endless… unless you count the possibility of long-term use as a power supply… the possibilities end there

    • Nathan Kirsch

      The High Power HPG-600BR-F12/14S has been around since 2010 and I don’t see too much about it online. Does it have a bad track record or short life span? Let me know if I missed something! All power supplies will fail, but I don’t know much about High Power models.

      • Spacecreepkitan

        I can only speak from personal experience ( and everyones personal experience will vary ) but I’ve had them in a couple cheap setups and they failed relatively quickly, no damage to any other components or anything, but i definitely don’t trust them, the systems here are still a good value even after buying a more reliable power supply.

        • Nathan Kirsch

          I totally understand and I’d take a good EVGA or Corsair PSU over a High Power model on any given day based on the same personal experiences. Having used this system and pounded on it for a week it seems like this PSU is okay and it should be okay.

        • JustaGuyFromCincy

          Can you recommend a better power supply that will work in this PC and will be compatible with higher end video cards? Thanks.
