From Thursday, July 29th, there will be a new gaming PC in the Aldi online shop. Equipped with an Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 Ti and an eight-core processor of the latest generation from Intel, the Medion Erazer Engineer P10 around 1,300 dollars.
We are therefore taking a closer look at the upcoming new Aldi PC, taking a look at how good the offer really is and how much a comparable do-it-yourself computer would cost.
What’s in the Medion Erazer Engineer P10?
The list of installed components is short but concise. The beating heart of the Erazer Engineer P10 is an Intel Core i7 11700F with eight cores, 16 threads and a top clock rate of 4.9 GHz. An Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 Ti with eight gigabytes of GDDR6 video memory is responsible for calculating the graphics. This is joined by 16.0 GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1.0 TB PCIe SSD, packaged in an InWin housing.
The specs at a glance:
- Mainboard: unknown
- CPU: Intel Core i7 11700F 8C/16T 2,5/4,9 GHz
- GPU: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 Ti 8,0 GByte GDDR6
- RAM: 16.0 GByte DDR4-2933
- Storage: 1,0 TByte PCIe-SSD
- Network: Gigabit LAN, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201
- Casing: InWin 303
How fast is the new Aldi PC?
In terms of performance, the RTX 3060 Ti is comparable to an RTX 2080 Super. In the GameStar test, it even scores slightly better. Together with the Intel Core i7 11700F, the team should be sufficient for playing current titles in the coming years – depending on the resolution and level of detail.
Depending on the game, the RTX 3060 Ti can also achieve smooth 60 frames per second in 4K. Here, however, performance and 8.0 GB of video memory can become the limiting factor and cause unpleasant drop in frame rates.
An RTX 3060 Ti or RTX 3070 is exactly your case, but you plan to build your own PC? In our detailed guides you can find out what your system should look like in order to be able to take full advantage of the performance of the new graphics card:
Who is the Engineer P10 suitable for?
For demanding WQHD players: The setup is best suited for gaming in WQHD resolution (2,560 x 1,440 pixels). In the GameStar test, the RTX 3060 Ti achieved an average of 108 FPS there. So here it makes sense to use a monitor with a refresh rate of 120 Hertz in order to take full advantage of the performance of the Erazer Engineer P10.
How lucrative is the offer?
We take a closer look at the individual components and see how much you would have to pay for them (as of July 20, 2021):
- Mainboard: that. 70 Euro
- CPU: that. 310 Euro
- GPU: that. 700 Euro
- RAM: that. 70 Euro
- Storage: that. 90 Euro
- Power adapter: that. 70 Euro
- Casing: that. 110 Euro
In total, we come to 1,420 dollars – without taking Windows 10 Home into account. The offer of 1,300 dollars can therefore be viewed as quite lucrative. The price driver is the graphics card, which, despite the tendency towards normalization of prices, has recently continued to cost almost twice the RRP of 400 dollars.
