SkyTech Blaze II (ST-BLAZE2-0350-B-AM) is a gaming tower desktop PC with a powerful Intel i3-10100F processor, GTX 1650 Super graphics card, 8GB DDR4 SDRAM memory, 500GB Solid State Drive, Windows 10 Home 64-bit operating system, RGB lighting and modern connectivity options including the 802.11ac WiFi. You’ll get an RGB keyboard and mouse combo included in the package. There is no junk ware or bloatware that you’d need to uninstall on the Blaze II desktop.
Skytech Blaze II is specifically designed for gaming, multimedia, home or personal use but will perform well in almost all cases. You have the option to get this tower desktop (ST-SHADOW-0238-AM model) with the 6-core Ryzen 5 3600 processor with twice the benchmark score and power and GTX 1660 Super at about 250 dollars more at the moment. Please check Amazon.com for the current prices for both options. The quarter 4 of 2020 release tenth generation quad-core Intel i3-10100F processor (8 threads with hyper threading) works at a base speed of 3.6GHz that goes up to 4.3GHz with the turbo boost function. The typical TDP is 65W and the average CPU Passmark benchmark score of 8853 for an advanced processing power overall to handle the complex tasks and demanding games.
8GB DDR4 SDRAM at 3200MHz with Heat Spreader is an acceptable and adequate amount of memory for the usual regular computer users for daily multitasking needs but not a lot for those that need lots of it. 500GB SSD offers a large storage space, again for daily use and for being able to store many regular and multimedia files including songs, videos or games. But if you’ll be saving lots of games you will need a larger storage. The speed on this SSD is up to 30 times faster than a regular SATA HDD. This tower desktop PC comes pre-installed with the Windows 10 Home 64-bit with its user-friendly interface and can be upgraded to Windows 11 easily through the Microsoft Store as it has become available recently. You can pretty much start using it straight away with the pre-installed Windows.
GTX 1650 Super with the 4GB dedicated memory has an impressive video card benchmark score of 9973. And it will let you play most of the demanding games at FHD 1080p resolution, high to ultra high settings, maximum details and decent 60+ frame rates per second. The overall performance is reported to be about the same as the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT and bit better than the GTX 1650. And the GTX 1660 Super on the alternative model has an average video card benchmark score of 12696 and is about 30% faster and more powerful than the GTX 1650 Super. And you can play the latest modern games at FHD resolution and maximum detail settings, or at QHD resolution and at a little reduced settings.
