Evesham Aims to Decimate Competition

Evesham's Decimator sports a new look and some bleeding-edge technology.

Evesham, the worlds favourite Worcestershire based PC manufacturer, has informed us that its going to be releasing a new flagship PC system designed to showcase Evesham’s expertise at putting bleeding edge technology together. The Evolution Decimator is based on Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 but is also designed as a cutting–edge gaming machine that Evesham claims that the machine will “eat eats Half Life 2 for breakfast”. This will be in no small measure due to the presence of an brand new ATI Radeon X850 XT graphics card.

The naming indicates a move away from the boring numbering scheme of old to shorter and hopefully more memorable names that hint at the technology inside. As well as a new name the Decimator sports Evesham’s new high end case. This unusual looking case, which Evesham claims is exclusive to it, will certainly garner a strong reaction with its large circular LCD panel on the fascia.

The specs are not for the faint hearted and pricing starts from £1820.08 including VAT.
