Hot on the heels of Intel’s new CPU releases (Sandy Bridge) and the latest nVidia graphics cards Cryo updated and re-launched its range of flight and driving simulation PC’s. The range has been named after iconic Fighter Aircraft used by the RAF dating from the 1940’s with the Supermarine ‘Spiteful’ the entry level model, to the mid-range 1950’s English Electric ‘Lightning’, and finally the showcase of state of the art flying technology the Eurofighter ‘Typhoon’.
The entry level takes affordable pricing from £795 to ultra performance at £1795 and upwards. The systems have been carefully designed, tested and fine tuned to yield the best results with FSX, which by happy coincidence also suits most other gaming and simulation software.
The Sim Collection has at its heart ultra high core speed CPU’s, low latency memory and SSD storage to maximum effect. The systems include options for specialist control systems such as yokes, rudder pedals and throttle quadrants, multiple 3-way and 6-way monitor configurations, pre-installation of sim software, and instrument panel sets for radio comms controls, altimeter, airspeed indicators and navigation panels.
Any potential customers interested in these systems are welcome to call up Cryo engineers and talk about what might work best for them and their budget. Cryo loves to talk about the things its passionate about.
