Pakistan’s PC market has been diluted for many years with only a limited number of brands covering most of the nation. But in the last few years, we’ve seen the rise of many eCommerce websites who did not only bring us an easy solution to buy products from home but also brought along with them numerous international brands to the Pakistan market. And Pakdukaan is one of that website, who brought a few new competitors to the local market and are rapidly expanding their partner list. And today, thanks to them, we’re going to take a look at the Antec P8 mid-tower chassis up-close and personal. Another brand brought to the local market by Pakdukaan.
The Antec P8, as mentioned above, is a mid-tower chassis that packs a 4mm tempered glass side panel, 3x white LED fans and a whole lot of space for your PC components to go with. It also comes with 7x PCIe expansion slots so you’ve got enough room to cramp in dual or triple GPUs.
About the brand itself, Antec has been in the PC parts industry for about 3 decades and they’re known for their top quality power supplies with a very low failure rate in the global market. And Antec is not only limited to PSUs but rather they also make chassis and cooling solutions.
Antec’s take on P8:
Clean lines and an interior designed around performance characterize the Antec P8 as a distinctly modern addition to the acclaimed Performance Series. Among the many advanced features, the P8 mid-tower includes ample space for high-end components, clearance for a variety of cooling options, and a tempered glass side panel for a versatile and elegant system at an attractive price point.
