The CES announcements for this year from Corsair took play not too much time ago and one of them mentioned a small but powerful machine by workstation standards, the One Pro i180 Compact Workstation PC. This future release is equipped with an Intel Core i9-9920X 12-core processor whose speed is 4.5GHz, and Nvidia RTX 2080Ti graphics that offers you the possibility to take advantage of its ray tracing technology.
If you were looking for a PC that is capable of the most demanding tasks, then your search is over. The compact 12-core Corsair workstation can be fitted with 2TB HDD to bolster it, a 960GB M.2 SSD for storage, and up to 32GB of quad-channel RAM. The advantages list of this workstation PC is not over yet. It also comes with RGB lighting which is controlled by their iCUE app. This sounds like a dream, but the price not so much. For such a PC you would need to pay $4,999.
If you are a gamer, then this PC would suit you best as it has the One Pro i180’s specs you are looking for, all aside from its great design and the RGB lighting. You might also assume that this PC is built with the help of Intel Xeon chips and Nvidia’s Quadro GPUs, but none of these parts are in.
If the 12-core workstation does not suit your budget, do not worry just yet. Corsair has some unique gaming-oriented variants for you in the form of the i140 and i160, priced at $3,599 and $2,999, respectively. Both models look similar to the more powerful (and expensive) model, including the liquid cooling for both the CPU and GPU. You will find GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics and an Intel Core i9-9900K processor in the i160 compact gaming desktop while the i140 one is equipped with GeForce RTX 2080 GPU and a Core i7-9700K chip.
