The purpose of this article is to provide my review of the Skytech Blaze 3.0. In this review of the Skytech Blaze 3.0, I will share my thoughts on this prebuilt PC. I will discuss the hardware included and its performance against modern AAA games, like Warzone 2 and others. The end of this article will show a list of all the games you can play. It will list your ideal graphics and resolution settings for performance.
I am only going to focus on the hardware that’s important to performance and gaming. I’m not going to go into the PC case, cooling, motherboard or network connectivity. Instead, I will be discussing the processor, graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.
Overview of the Skytech Blaze 3.0
The Skytech Blaze 3.0 is a good choice for those who enjoy gaming at higher levels of performance, graphics, and resolution. This means your resolution can scale to 4K and you will be able to turn your graphics settings to high or ultra and still get good performance.
Overall, the Skytech Blaze has a good processor, 16TB of RAM, and a 1TB NVMe SSD drive. The specs for the Skytech Blaze 3.0 are listed below and I will talk about each one in detail and provide my reasons for liking this build, as well as some items that I’m not a big fan of.
It is also made in the U.S.A. (so you get U.S. based support) and comes with a 1-year warranty with lifetime technical support.
Review of Skytech Blaze 3.0’s CPU (AMD Ryzen 7 3700X)
The Skytech Blaze 3.0s processor is an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X. It was initially released in July of 2019. The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X supports up to 3200Mhz of DDR 4 memory. It also has 32GB of L3 cache and a boost clock ratio of 4.4Ghz. This is an 8-core processor, which surpasses the recommended system requirements of any modern AAA game today.
That being said, let’s take a look at how this processor ranks against the system requirements for Warzone 2.0.
We can see that Competitive Specs call out for an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X. Ultra 4K Specs call out an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X. Competitive Specs would allow you to play at 1440P resolution with maximum graphics settings. The Ultra 4K Specs would allow you to play on 4K resolution with maximum graphics settings.
|Cores (Threads)||Base Clock||Boost Clock||L3 Cache|
|AMD Ryzen 7 1800X||8 (16)||3.6||4.0||16MB|
|AMD Ryzen 7 3700X||8 (16)||3.6||4.4||32MB|
|AMD Ryzen 9 3900X||12 (24)||3.8||4.6||64MB|
You can see from the table above that the Ryzen 7 3700X falls in between the Competitive Specs and the Ultra 4K Specs requirements. I think you would be fine playing at 4K resolution with this processor. You may need to adjust your graphics settings for better performance, however.
Lastly, I love the fact that all AMD Ryzen processors can be overclocked. You can certainly overclock this processor if you need to hit higher levels of performance for 4K gaming.
RAM and Hard Drive – Skytech Blaze 3.0
RAM: The Skytech Blaze 3.0 comes with 16GB of DDR4 3200MHz. I have said this in my other reviews of Skytech gaming PCs and I will say it again. I would not go less than 16GB of RAM for a new PC. At this point, especially with this build, I think 16GB is the bare minimum.
Another thing to consider is that DDR4 memory is mainstream today. However, DDR5 RAM is available on the market and will be mainstream soon.
Hard Drive: The Skytech Blaze 3.0 comes with a 1TB NVMe SSD drive. NVMe is the latest in storage technology and adds a factor of 6 times the speed of traditional SSD. 1TB is a good amount of data storage being that modern AAA games have installation requirements of 20-60GB.
What Games Can I Play on the Skytech Blaze 3.0?
The processor, RAM, hard drive, and graphics card all play important roles in determining the games you can play. The most important component with this build that we need to focus on will be the graphics card. NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 is an upper-level graphics card in the 30 series product line. It was made for performance gaming along with the 3080 Ti, 3090, and 3090 Ti. There are really not any games out there that this graphics card would not be able to handle.
The question that remains is what kind of performance you will get. You will likely game at 4K resolution or 1440P resolution with your graphic settings turned all the way up.
|Game||Ideal Resolution||Ideal Graphics Settings|
|Modern Warfare 2 / Warzone 2.0||1440P-4K||Maximum|
|Red Dead Redemption 2||1440P-4K||High-Ultra|
|Far Cry 6||1440P-4K||Maximum|
|Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5)||1440P-4K||High|
|World of WarCraft||1440P-4K||Maximum|
|League of Legends||1440P-4K||Maximum|
|Team Fortress 2||1440P-4K||Maximum|
The Skytech Blaze 3.0 is one of the better gaming machines from Skytech Gaming. You would not be able to build this gaming PC for any less by doing it yourself. It also comes with one year of support. If anything goes wrong in that first year, you can submit a claim and work with U.S. based support. This gaming PC will treat you well for the next 3-5 years without needing to upgrade. If you do need to upgrade, focus on the RAM first. Overall, I highly recommend the Skytech Blaze 3.0.
