PC Magazine named our Edge Z55 its Editors’ Choice for high end gaming

EC Vertical_Z55With as many of these awards that we’ve won (this makes 18 from PC Magazine alone for those keeping score at home) it really never gets old. Thanks to some serious attention to detail, expert engineering by our team, and our new MX3 case, the Edge Z55 dominated PC Magazine’s benchmarks while wooing the reviewer with its good looks. From the article:

“The Velocity Micro Edge Z55 blows away the competition on five of our six 3D gaming tests, and costs $3,000 less….We wholeheartedly award the Edge Z55 our Editors’ Choice for high-end gaming desktop PCs.”

That’s some pretty solid praise from a reviewer that’s seen a lot of PCs. To read the full review, click here. If you’d like to configure a Z55 for yourself, here’s where to do it.
