In this article I will provide my review of the Skytech Siege 4 and how it performs against STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor. Please note the specific SKU being reviewed is ST-SIEGE4-0534-B-SK (below).
Skytech Siege 4 vs STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor
In order to understand how the Skytech Siege 4 would perform against STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor, we must first get its recommended system requirements. Steam lists the following:
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- Processor: 4 core / 8 threads | Intel Core i5 11600K | Ryzen 5 5600X
- Memory: 16 GB RAM
- Graphics: 8GB VRAM | RTX2070 | RX 6700 XT
- DirectX: Version 12
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Storage: 155 GB available space
To gain a true understanding of their request, it’s essential to delve into the key components outlined. For many, including myself, these crucial elements encompass the (1) processor, (2) graphics card, (3) RAM, and (4) hard drive. A comparison will be made between the recommended system requirements and the specifications of the Skytech Siege 4. The analysis will reveal that the Skytech Siege 4 aligns well with the demands of this game, ensuring high-level gaming performance (FPS) while maintaining maximum graphical settings at a 1080P resolution. Additionally, the Skytech Siege 4 should support gameplay of STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor at 1440P, although the performance outcomes may not be optimal. However, achieving satisfactory results at 4K resolution might be challenging due to limitations posed by the graphics card.
Processor – Skytech Siege 4
The Intel i5 13600K is a newer generation processor from Intel. It is two generations above what is called out for STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor. Here is how the two compare:
|Intel i5 11600K
|Intel i5 13600K
|Cores and Threads
|6 cores, 12 threads
|14 core, 20 threads
|Clock Speeds (Max Turbo)
The Intel i5 11600K processor is two generations behind what comes with the Skytech Siege 4. The Intel i5 13600K is double the performance of the older generation i5 in some areas. Are you going to see double the performance in STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor? Probably not but you will see a performance increase.
Graphics Card Review – Intel Arc A770 16GB
The Intel Arc A770 is a new graphics card released by Intel. It is their first venture getting into graphics cards and when it was first released there were a lot of complaints about bugs (of course). That’s to be expected. However, it’s been some time and now, given this price point and what it can do, it’s an attractive card. Since it’s difficult to compare graphics cards’ specs across brands, many benchmarks have revealed that this graphics card is similar to the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti or AMD RX 6600. A comparison by PCWorld demonstrates its performance against these two graphics cards and shows that the Intel Arc A770 16GB graphics card outperforms the RTX 3060 Ti and AMD RX 6600 on 1440P resolution, but the other cards do better on 1080P resolution.
That being said, you shouldn’t have any worries about playing this game with this graphics card since all three of the aforementioned graphics cards beat out the RTX 2070 – the graphics card called out for STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor.
The Skytech Siege 4 is equipped with an impressive 32GB of DDR5 5200MHz RAM, an extraordinary amount of high-speed memory for a game such as STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor, which only specifies 16GB as the recommended capacity. This RAM configuration is excessive for this particular game, yet it provides a solid foundation for upcoming games like Hogwarts, which demand an extraordinary amount of RAM to run smoothly. The substantial RAM allocation ensures seamless multitasking capabilities, enabling you to simultaneously stream, listen to music, browse the web, play STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor, and engage in various tasks without encountering any bottlenecks related to RAM constraints.
Hard Drive Review
The Skytech Siege 4 boasts a state-of-the-art 1TB NVMe SSD, a cutting-edge innovation in storage technology. NVMe delivers speeds six times faster than traditional SSDs, guaranteeing rapid data access. With its 1TB storage capacity, it perfectly caters to the demands of modern gaming, providing ample space for multiple contemporary games. Additionally, it allows for potential future storage expansion if needed.
Considering the inclination of gamers to amass substantial media content such as streaming files, various games, photos, and extensive data over time, I recommend considering an external hard drive. Specifically, the Buffalo LinkStation stands out due to its 2TB storage capacity, achieved through RAID 1 drive mirroring. This setup ensures data redundancy and offers a total of 4TB of RAW storage.
In my opinion, the Skytech Siege 4 is a great PC to play STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor. However, I would stick to 1080P and 1440P resolutions with this prebuilt PC due to the graphics card and processor combination. That being said, this PC will give you a good five years of gaming on modern AAA gaming titles, like STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor.
