Aftershock Ultracore gaming PC review

Aftershock is an Australian based PC builder. Its fully customizable PCs, workstations, and laptops have earned strong praise in the few years since its formation. Aftershock earned the ‘Best Desktop PC Builder’ award at our own Australian PC Awards two years in a row. If you’re after a desktop that lets you choose every one of its components, without the hassle of building it yourself, Aftershock is a definitely a brand you should check out.

We have Aftershock’s Ultracore (opens in new tab) model in for review. It’s a big, bold, and brawny PC. Take one look at it and you’ll be left in no doubt that this is a serious PC. It just looks the part. One of its strengths is the fact that it uses off the shelf components, so there’s none of that bespoke stuff that can hinder upgrades on the likes of an Alienware or HP gaming PC.
