Gladiator Computers BATTALION 800 Gaming PC Review

Gaming Performance


Grand Theft Auto 5

Grand Theft Auto V’s visually stunning environment is brimming with detail and poses a significant challenge for modern graphics cards on extreme presets. The system’s GTX 970 is able to maintain a very solid average frame-rate of 94 when paired with a 1080P monitor. Even increasing the resolution to 2560×1440 doesn’t allow the average figure to drop under 60. Of course, at this resolution you will experience more frequent dips but it’s not enough to detract from a great user-experience.

Metro Last Light

Here we can see the system fares brilliantly and manages to uphold a fluid frame-rate across the two most commonly used resolutions.

Tomb Raider

The BATTALION 800’s achieves the best scores we’ve seen from any GTX 970 equipped system. Granted, this is probably down to driver improvements from NVIDIA and there’s very little to choose between products opting for similar hardware. Despite this, the level of performance is exceptional when you consider the fairly modest price point.

Bioshock Infinite

In Bioshock Infinite, the system maintained superb performance numbers and I didn’t encounter and major frame drops at higher resolutions. While it’s not the best result in its class, the experience is more than enough to please users with high demands. Furthermore, the deficit remains within a small margin of error.
