In this article I will provide my review of the Skytech Siege 4 and will also talk about some of the games you can play with this prebuilt PC. I will analyze the following:
- The entire build
- Processor used for Skytech Siege 4
- Graphics Card (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 12GB)
- RAM and Hard Drive
- List of PC games you can play and at what resolution/graphics setting
Overview of the Entire Build – Skytech Siege 4
The Skytech Siege 4 is meant for gamers who want to enjoy their games at 1080P resolution with really great graphics. This is a very interesting build from Skytech because it comes with Intel’s new Arc A770 16GB graphics card. This build is similar to Skytech’s Nebula build in that it has the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card. The 4070 on the Skytech Nebula will perform a little bit better and does have a more mature graphics card. That being said, the Intel Arc A770 does come with 16GB of VRAM compared to the 4070 that only has 12GB of VRAM.
Overall, my opinion is that the Skytech Siege 4 has a good processor, good graphics card, good amount of RAM and storage capacity. It’s a good entry-level gaming PC. It’s perfect for the gamer who enjoys rich graphics.
All Skytech PCs are made in the U.S.A. (so you get U.S. based support) and they come with a 1-year warranty with lifetime technical support.
Review of Skytech Siege 4’s Processor
The Skytech Siege 4 comes with an Intel i5 13600K processor. What’s important to know about this processor is that it can be overclocked. This is different from other Intel processors that do not have the “K” designation. Other builds that have the Ryzen processors can all be overclocked. All Intel processors that are denoted with K can be overclocked, but not processors denoted by F. The “F” in this case tells us that the processor requires a dedicated graphics card and that there is no on-chip integrated graphics processor.
Additionally, this series of Intel processors are almost the latest generation of processor at the time of this writing. These are the 13th generation Intel processors.
However, that being said this processor is still going to surpass any recommended system requirements from any AAA game in the near future. To date, there has not been a game that has been released that calls for recommended system requirements. That being said, Competitive Specifications and Ultra 4K Specifications do call for higher end processors. But, that level of gaming is not who this PC is targeting. This PC targets those gamers who don’t want to break the bank but still get a great gaming experience. They are okay with gaming on 1080P and getting exceptional graphics and performance. Those higher end processors are meant for higher resolutions, higher graphics output, and faster performance.
Games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 / Warzone 2 are examples of games coming out with advanced system requirements. This is due to competitive gaming requirements and 4K. Let’s take a look at how this processor ranks against the system requirements for Warzone 2.0 – a modern AAA game. We will specifically review its Competitive and Ultra 4K specifications.
You can see that Competitive Specs call out for an Intel i7 8700K. Ultra 4K Specs call out an Intel i9 9900K. 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|
|Intel i7 8700K||6 (12)||3.7||4.7||12MB|
|Intel i5 13600K||14 (20)||3.5||5.3||24MB|
|Intel i9 12900K||16 (24)||3.2||5.2||30MB|
You can see from the table above that the Intel i5 13600K CPU is superior to that of the Competitive Specifications of Warzone 2. It is also less than the Ultra 4K Specifications of Warzone 2. This is truly a processor that exceeds the recommended system requirements, but does not quite make it in to the upper levels of processing power for 4K gaming with a high refresh rate. Although it has higher frequencies it does not have quite as many cores or cache. Again, this all fits into the picture of the target audience for the Skytech Siege 4. You can play 1440P resolution with Ultra graphics but may lack a little on the 4K gaming side.
Skytech Siege 4 – Intel Arc A770 16GB
The Intel Arc A770 16GB graphics card is a great entry level GPU. It has a ton a VRAM and can perform well on 1080P resolution. This is a newer graphics card that has undergone some much needed patching from its first release. To get a comparison of how this stacks up, HWBen posted a video that shows a good comparison between this graphics card and the RTX 4070 Ti.
Skytech Siege 4 – RAM and Hard Drive
RAM: The Skytech Siege 4 comes with 32GB of DDR5 5200MHz. I have said this in other reviews of Skytech gaming PCs: 32GB of RAM future-proofs your gaming experience for new games coming out in 2024 and beyond. 32GB is especially needed for games like Hogwarts that demand a higher amount of RAM.
Hard Drive: The Skytech Siege 4 comes with a 1TB NVMe SSD drive. NVMe is the latest in storage technology and is 6 times the speed of traditional SSD. 1TB of storage capacity will allow you to have enough storage for any modern game. If you need to add storage down the road, you can.
I do also recommend an external hard drive due to the fact that most gamers have large media files from either streaming, other games, photos, and just years of data. I recommend the Buffalo LinkStation because it comes with 2TB of storage after RAID 1 drive mirroring (4TB of RAW storage).
What Games Can I Play on the Skytech Siege 4?
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. Intel Arc’s A770 graphics card is the new kid on the block and competing hard against NVIDIA and AMD. It was made for gamers who are looking for good performance on 1080P resolution at a good price point.

Please do note that your results may vary. New patches and changes to the game along with background applications you run will all have an impact on your performance. These are also conservative estimates in most cases so you may be able to get better performance on 1440P resolution than listed here. You may even be able to game with ultra-settings on 4K with some of these games, but do know that the quality and performance may not be optimal or even good in some cases.
