Razer has been talking for years about launching a modular personal computer with interchangeable parts, and after numerous conceptual products and advertisements, the company announced the sale of its first pre-built desktop personal computer.
The new computer Tomahawk is the final version of what the company exhibited at CES 2020 in January. It is a simple box design with two PCIe slots: the first is for separate graphics cards, and the other is for the Intel NUC Element board that contains the CPU (processor), random access memory (RAM), internal storage memory, in addition to other components that any computer needs to function .
The Intel NUC Element unit includes a 45W Core i9-9980HK Coffee Lake processor, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, a 512 GB NVMe SSD, in addition to another HDD with a capacity of 2 TB.
RAM and internal storage can be upgraded, but the processor cannot be upgraded, unless Intel releases a compatible NUC board that can be swapped directly into the new Tomahawk.
The Tomahawk has enough space to add a separate full-size graphics card, and there is an option to order it with the Nvidia GTX 3080 Founders Edition graphics card preinstalled.
The metal box measuring 210 mm x 365 mm x 150 mm measures 10 liters in addition to a 750 watt power supply unit, and uses active cooling technology.
Razer’s new Tomahawk contains four USB-A 3.2 ports, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, as well as support for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
Razer plans to launch the new Tomahawk computer at a price of $ 2,400 for the base model that comes without a discrete graphics card, and at a price of $ 3,200 with a GTX 3080 card. The door to initial ordering for the computer has opened in the United States.
