With the launch of Nvidia’s new range of high end graphic cards well under way it is time for the Santa Clara engineering team to turn its attention to the more affordable end of the market. Each generation has its ‘people’s champion’ and Jen Hsun Huang will surely be hoping that the GTX760 can be that card for 2013. The MESH brand has been around since 1987 and when we asked them for a powerful, affordable GTX760 SLi system for analysis, they happily obliged.
While MESH may not be competing for world records, they do have a reputation for creating systems that appeal to a larger audience … for less money that you might pay for a Hewlett Packard or Dell unit with a similar specification.
At the point where MESH’s R&D testing finished on the GTX760 cards, a brand new system was created and made ready for sale on the company’s web site and for detailed analysis in the KitGuru Labs. We spoke with the management team at MESH before they shipped the box and they told us that around 50% of their customers are insisting on Windows 7.
All MESH systems come with a ‘Gold’ Warranty which means you get free collect and return in the first 3 months, then parts guaranteed for 2 years and an additional 3rd year of free labour should any issues arise.
