Razer’s Tomahawk secluded gaming PC is at last a real product
Razer has been talking up secluded gaming PCs with smoothed out swappable parts for quite a long time. Presently, after different ideas, CES uncovers, and standard PC cases with related branding, the organization is really selling a pre-built desktop PC for the first time.
The Tomahawk is the last version of what we saw at CES 2020 back in January. It’s a basic case plan with two PCIe slots: one for a full-sized GPU, and one for an Intel NUC Element board that contains the CPU, the RAM, the storage, and fundamentally all else you require for a functional PC.
The NUC module incorporates a 45W Core i9-9980HK Coffee Lake processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB NVMe SSD, and a 2TB hard drive. The memory and storage are upgradable, yet the CPU isn’t — except if Intel releases another viable NUC board that you can trade straightforwardly into the Tomahawk. That Coffee Lake CPU is the sort of part you may discover in a top of the line gaming PC, so while it’s quick today it likely could be something you’d want to upgrade down the line.
The Tomahawk has space for a full-size GPU up to 320 x 140mm and there’s an alternative to arrange it with a Nvidia RTX 3080 Founders Edition pre-introduced. The 210mm x 365mm x 150mm metal chassis is 10L in limit, accompanies a 750W PSU, and utilizations active cooling. There are 4 USB-A 3.2 ports and 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, just as locally available Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 Razer says the little size is intended for bringing to competitions and LAN parties or simply opening up work area space.
You’ll need to truly esteem those traits for the Tomahawk to be justified, despite any trouble, on the grounds that obviously it doesn’t come modest. Razer has evaluated it at $2,400 for the base model without a discrete GPU or $3,200 with a RTX 3080; preorders have opened in the US, yet it’s presently recorded as unavailable.
