Artefact Silver and Gold, what are the differences?

Artefact offers you two ranges of refurbished gaming PCs at prices that are still under control! Artefact’s historical range, SILVER, is an excellent price/performance ratio. The GOLD range, for its part, brings a breath of fresh air, with more recent hardware and very high scalability towards more modern and more energy-efficient processor generations!

Who is it for?

Certain particular uses of a computer benefit enormously from more recent processors , which embed optimized calculation technologies , this is the main reason why we offer this GOLD range. These uses are limited but the main ones are:

  • Games on modern emulators (Wii U, Switch, PS3 etc.)
  • Flight or racing simulators ( Flight Simulator , iRacing etc.)
  • Recent CAD/CAO/MAO applications

Obviously, the GOLD range is not limited to that, and for a simple question of comfort and scalability, you can turn to these products 🙂

And for the rest ?

For the rest of the PC, nothing changes: we apply the same time for each range of refurbished gaming PCs, use the same connectors, the same ATX PC cases and the same PC power supplies, of the same quality!

Choosing a range when you buy an Artifact is important, because it is impossible to change it after purchase! Indeed, motherboards are designed for one and only one processor connection (called a socket). You will therefore not be able to upgrade a SILVER Artifact to a GOLD Artifact .
