Corsair Launches Intel Core i9-Powered High-End Compact Gaming PCs at CES 2019
Corsair has launched a new range of gaming PCs at CES 2019. Leading the launch is Corsair One Pro i180, which is powered by a liquid-cooled Intel Core i9-9920X 12-core processor with a top clock speed of 4.5GHz and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU. All this in a small workstation form factor that is claimed to occupy “less than a third” of the space of its more traditional counterparts. The company also announced its new Corsair One i160 and Corsair One i140 gaming PCs that are comparatively more affordable than the One Pro i180.
Starting with the highlight, the Corsair One Pro i180, the PC has been developed in partnership with Intel. It’s clad in a 2mm-thick aircraft-grade bead-blasted aluminium gunmetal housing. Besides the earlier mentioned Intel Core i9-9920X that delivers a 24-thread performance at speeds up to 4.5GHz, and a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU with real-time ray tracing, it sports 32GB of quad-channel Corsair DDR4 memory, support for up to four 4K monitors and VR, 960GB of high-speed M.2 SSD storage and 2TB of HDD capacity.
The Corsair One Pro i180A has a completely redesigned internal layout, in conjunction with a patented convection-assisted liquid cooling system for both the processor and graphics card. This expels hot air through a vent in the top of the chassis, allowing the machine to stay cool despite its compact 12-litre volume.
These high-end specs are aimed at delivering high performance for content creators, game designers, and video editors, among other system intensive applications.
Moving on to the new Corsair One i160 and Corsair One i140, both machines are aimed at high-end gamers. The Corsair One i160 is powered by an Intel Core i9-9900K processor and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card, while the Corsair One i140 features an Intel Core i7-9700K processor and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card, with liquid-cooling for both the processor and graphics card on both models. Both come with 32GB of Corsair DDR4 memory, multi-monitor and VR support, 480GB of high-speed M.2 SSD storage and 2TB of HDD capacity.
The Corsair One i140 is priced $2,999 (roughly Rs. 2,10,000) and available immediately from the Corsair webstore in North America. The Corsair One i160 and Corsair One Pro i180 priced $3,599 (roughly Rs. 2,52,000) and $4,999 (roughly Rs. 3,50,000) respectively, will be available sometime early this year. All three systems will be available from the Corsair worldwide network of authorised retailers and distributors later in 2019.
