The Dreamcore Bullet is the latest SFF PC vying for a place on your desk

Dreamcore Bullet

Dreamcore is expanding its range of custom PCs with two new systems. The Dreamcore Bullet is a compact small form factor PC that packs plenty of performance, while the Ghost is a more value-oriented machine for those on a budget.

Dreamcore says the Bullet is the smallest custom PC you can get here to feature an internal power supply. At 305 x 120 x 200mm, it’s slightly smaller than even the Aftershock Impulse V2 – arguably its biggest competitor locally – all while supporting the fastest desktop components.

The company says it designed and manufactured the chassis itself, and it’s also more compact than similar products like the Kolink Rocket, Hammertech H4, and Preflow Shadow.

The Bullet makes few compromises in terms of performance, supporting up to an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor (or AMD Ryzen chips if you want), speedy M.2 PCIe SSDs, and even an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

The chassis boasts a sandblasted aluminum surface, and generous vents at the side and top help ensure that there’s enough airflow to keep the components running cool.

In addition, the Bullet features plenty of connectivity ports, to the tune of eight USB ports, of which six are USB 3.1 ports, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.

Here’s an overview of Dreamcore’s recommended specifications:

  • Intel Core i5-8500 (3.0GHz, 9MB L3 cache)
  • 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • 250GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD
  • 1TB 7,200RPM HDD
  • Windows 10 Home (64-bit)

The above specifications will cost you S$1,985, but the Bullet actually starts at a more affordable S$1,490 with an Intel Core i3-8100 (3.6GHz, 6MB L3 cache), 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.

On the other hand, the Dreamcore Ghost is targeted at those looking for a gaming PC that won’t break the bank. It starts at S$875, and it’s a good fit for those who want to run less demanding esports titles or 1080p games at Low to Medium settings.

The base configuration will net you a quad-core AMD Ryzen 3 2200G (3.5GHz, 4MB L3 cache) with Radeon Vega 8 processor graphics, 8GB of RAM, and a 120GB SATA SSD.

That said, you’ll probably want to opt for a discrete GPU if you’ve got the budget for it, and here’s a look at Dreamcore’s recommended configuration, which will cost you S$1,615:

  • Intel Core i5-8500 (3.0GHz, 9MB L3 cache)
  • 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • 250GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD
  • 1TB 7,200RPM HDD
  • Windows 10 Home (64-bit)

The Dreamcore Bullet and Ghost will be available to buy on Dreamcore's website starting on 28 May. They'll also be on display at the PC Show 2018 next week.
