The Skytech Chronos 2, is a system designed for gamers who want to dive straight into action with a punchy next gen graphics card, but you don’t have to look very far to find systems that offer better value for money.
The packaging exhibits Skytech’s dedication to ensuring a safe transit for this powerhouse. The meticulous placement of airbags and foam inside the chassis indicates a proactive approach to safeguarding the PC’s delicate components.
The Chronos 2 may not win many beauty pageants. It’s simple, with a mesh design that might seem a tad outdated, especially in 2023. Yet, the RGB Skytech logo adds a touch of modernity without overwhelming the aesthetic. On the inside, impeccable cable management echoes professionalism and care.
The default RGB lighting leaves much to be desired, with a muddy yellow that isn’t too pleasing. However, the Chronos 2 offers options: Signal RGB and RGB Fusion. Though the two might conflict, opting for Signal RGB offers a smoother experience. Yet, to get the best out of it, you might need to uninstall Fusion.
At its core, the Chronos 2 packs a punch for gamers with the RTX 4070, though it might stumble on workstation tasks. The pricing might be a bone of contention for some, especially with RTX 30-series machines available at discounted prices.
At first glance the RTX 4070’s allure can be tempting, but the rest of the specs in the machine make one ponder.
My view is that for the price, their are better options out there currently.
Our Product Score
The Chronos 2 offers a gaming experience out of the box, but its limitations in workstation tasks and potential upgrades, coupled with competition from last-gen models, curtail its score potential.
The Skytech Chronos 2 doesn't quite hit the mark. If you're on the hunt for a more all-rounded machine, consider the discounted RTX 3080-powered systems as an alternative.
