Building a powerful desktop computer is a lengthy and expensive task with many options available on the GPUs, RAMs and SSDs market. Razer, the popular game laptop manufacturer, announced at CES 2020 that Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is a dream true for gaming enthusiasts and DIY enthusiasts.
Razer Tomahawk bundles the Intel NUC 9 Element for Extreme Compute, which allows updating components a child’s game. Intel NUCs are basically a system-on-card with Intel Core H Series processors for the 9th generation. Components such as the motherboard, storage, RAM and CPU are soldered on a single PCI-E card so that components can easily be upgraded easily.
As far as customization is concerned, Intel NUCs can support up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM, Intel i9 processors and even fit into a GPU up to Nvidia RTX 2080 super. Assembling a gaming desktop PC with these solid components is just 30 seconds.
Razer will start shipping its 16 GB of RAM, Core i7, 512 SSD and GeForce RTX 20-series GPU Tomahawk desktop game PC. The company still does not reveal any amount, but we can expect it to fall below the price brackets of $2,000 and $2,500.
Razer is also a standby option for gaming enthusiasts and system integrators who want to install their favourite NUCs with the Tomahawk N1 chassis. The chassis comes complete with a standard industry SFX power supply, and only an Intel NUC has to be installed and wires attached to start playing.
Components can be replaced or upgraded easily with the Razer Tomahawk N1 chassis which features an open and closing lock and slide mechanism.
According to Razer, “NUC card RAM and SSD modules and fans, GPU and the NUC itself can be upgraded.”
So, what would you like, an individual Razer chassis or a full desktop game PC with upgradeable components?
