Chillblast Fusion Juggernaut gaming PC

A wolf in sheep’s clothing

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The one thing you notice about the Juggernaut is how quiet it is. It’s not silent by any means, but considering the hardware and the number of fans inside it, its low noise level is still very impressive.

So far so good, but what about the graphics performance? In keeping with the rest of the internals, the graphics performance is top notch. In fact, the graphics card is the first thing that catches you eye when you open the case’s side panel - it's massive.

Sitting in the primary x16 PCIe slot is an Nvidia GeForce 9800 GX2 dual-chip graphics card with each of the cores clocked at 600MHz. Th 1GB of GDDR 3 memory runs at 1GHz - effictively 2GHz since it's double-data rate memory. Futuremark’s demanding 3DMark06 benchmark yields a score of 18,825.

Tested with a real life game, in this case World in Conflict's built in benchmark, the Fusion Juggernaut produced an average frame rate score of 65f/s when tested at a 1280 x 1024 resolution with all in-game details set to high.

Now, this is all well and good. But if you ever want to upgrade the graphics, you face a bit of a dilemma. While the Juggarnaut comes with a single Nvidia card, if you wanted to go down the multi-card route you’ll have to ditch the Nvidia board as the motherboard only supports AMD’s CrossFire technology, not Nvidia's equivalent, SLI. You're also limited to just two AMD graphics cards, not three or four.
