Fans of Corsair’s high-end gaming machines are in for some good news. The company is releasing two new computers that will be surely please even the most demanding gamer.
Last year, Corsair came out with a great concept: a gaming computer called the Corsair One that was like a console. That is, it was pre-built to do one thing: to run games and run them really fast. You didn’t have to tinker around with them or add any special components. They just worked.
Now the company is releasing two new editions of the Corsair One, both of which come with state-of-the-art specs. Both models include Intel’s latest high-end processor: its 8th-generation 6-core Core i7-8700K, which is an upgrade from the 7th generation Intel Core i7-7700K the original Corsair One used. They have also upgraded the graphics card. Instead of a Nvidia GTX 1080, they now come with a Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti.
The first new model is called the Corsair One Pro Plus. It comes standard with 16 GB of RAM. The second model is called the Corsair One Elite, and it comes with 32 GB of RAM. Both new Corsair One machines include a 2 TB standard hard drive and a blazing fast 480GB M.2 NVMe SSD drive.
As to price, Corsair One Pro Plus has a list price of $2,799, while the Corsair One Elite — with its extra RAM — costs $2,999.
The release of new Corsair models does not mean that the company will stop selling the original Corsair One computers. The original Corsair One, which comes with a 7th generation Intel Core i7-7700K and a Nvidia GTX 1080, is still available, for $2,299. The same computer with 32 GB of RAM costs $2,499.
Corsair is selling all 4 computers on its website.
