iBUYPOWER added the Revolt compact gaming powerhouse back at CES 2013. While that built was awesome, it was also a little on the pricier side of things which is always the case with Intel based systems. iBUYPOWER looks to now expand those options and offer a very reasonable entry-level system with the same Revolt case. In addition to this they are also launching a new series of Valkyrie gaming laptops with AMD A10 APUs.
I know as well as the next guy that AMD cannot realistically compete with Intel in clock for clock performance. I also know first hand how little that actually matters for gaming and daily use of a PC so I am very happy to see the iBUYPOWER Valkyrie with AMD A10 APUs up to the A10-6800K and up to an Radeon HD 8970M 2GB GDDR5 graphics card. These gaming laptops can also be equipped with an SSD and HDD for the best in capacity and speed. The best part is the entry price is much lower than its Intel based Valkyrie counterparts.
If a gaming laptop was not your cup-of-tea then iBUYPOWER still has you covered with the AMD A10 equipped Revolt. The perfect pairing of compact design, low power use, and high gaming performance. The AMD Revolt gives you more control over the price by starting as low as $499. AMD and iBUYPOWER are determined to bring you as many options as possible and save you money while they do it.
