The Dreamcore Reverie Pro is a monster PC that can be equipped with AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper and 128GB of RAM
Local startup Dreamcore is back at Comex 2017 with two new PC systems – the Dreamcore Alpha and Reverie Pro.
The latter is the far more attention-grabbing model, and Dreamcore says it is its most powerful PC yet. The Reverie Pro is the larger sibling of the Reverie, and it is something of a bridge between professional workstations and consumer gaming desktops.
For one, it can be equipped with either AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper or Intel’s Skylake-X processors, up to 128GB of ECC DDR4 memory, and four graphics cards.
That said, most users probably aren’t going to need to max out all the specifications, and Dreamcore recommends the following configuration:
- AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X (3.5GHz, 32MB L3 cache)
- Corsair H110i AIO cooler
- 32GB DDR4 RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
- 250GB SSD + 2TB HDD
- Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
Naturally, you’ll have to be prepared to pony up for premium parts like that, and the above configuration will cost you S$4,509. The Reverie Pro joins gaming rigs from other local companies like Aftershock and Typhoon Systems in offering Threadripper, so there's a decent amount of choice if you're looking for a pre-built PC.
However, the Reverie Pro actually starts at S$2,599, and you can get it with a more sensible Intel Core i7-7700K, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. This base model also comes with a smaller 120GB SSD and 1TB HDD, and ditches the closed-loop liquid CPU cooler for a Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi air cooler.
The Reverie Pro’s chassis will also feature dual tempered glass panels and a sandblasted aluminum body.
But for those of you who don’t need that amount of computing heft, Dreamcore is hoping you’ll look to the Alpha.
This is an entry-level PC targeted at gamers who play e-sports titles such as Dota 2, League of Legends, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
It starts at an affordable S$1,059 with a quad-core AMD Ryzen 1200 processor (3.1GHz, 8MB L3 cache), 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, but most users will probably prefer to opt for a more powerful configuration with a GeForce GTX 1060.
For S$1,299, you can get the following recommended specifications:
- Intel Core i5-7500 (3.4GHz, 6MB L3 cache)
- 8GB DDR4 RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
- 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD
- Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
The Alpha also comes with braided cables by default, in addition to optional RGB case lighting and case fans. And even though it was designed for more budget-oriented gamers, there are still options to equip it with up to an Intel Core i7-7700 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
