Introduction


A big thank you to Computer Upgrade King for providing the Continuum Micro Gaming PC for review.

Computer Upgrade King was founded in 2008 in Richmond, Virginia and is a family owned business. With a drive to produce aesthetically pleasing but entirely functional and enduring computers, they have dedicated themselves to ensuring customer satisfaction above all else, which may be why the company has grown as large as it is. While a relative newcomer in regards to public awareness, the company has been at numerous trade shows, including this year's CES 2019 and Computex 2019. Considering their penchant for building quality systems, I suspect we will see a great deal more of them in the future.


In today's review, I take a look at the Computer Upgrade King Continuum Micro Gaming PC. This will be the first system I look at from the company, and it is a more value-focused offering. It comes equipped with an AMD Ryzen 2700, AMD Radeon RX 580 4 GB, 16 GB of DDR4 3000 MHz memory, and a 512 GB SSD for storage, all of which is packed into a Micro-ATX chassis with six RGB fans and a unique infinity mirror styled front panel with RGB LEDs. It certainly looks good, but looks only go so far. Let us take a closer look at what's behind the tempered glass.
