Razer sells a lot of gaming mice, keyboards, headphones and avant-garde gaming laptops called Blade, but it has never sold its own gaming desktop computer. This summer, however, that will change, with Razer to launch a fully upgradeable gaming computer called Razer Tomahawk, which will be just 10 litres in size.
At first glance it looks like Razer Tomahawk is just an external GPU graphics box, with a smooth aluminum and tempered glass box with no traditional motherboard or desktop CPU, but an Intel NUC Element modular computer with up to 45W of Core the i9-9980HK mobile CPU, cooling fan, memory and storage slots, Wi-Fi 6 wireless network cards, a large number of ports, and the power connectors that the motherboard usually needs to provide.
This design allows Razer to simply design the chassis, provide power, graphics, SSDs, fans and memory, and pre-install the operating system. Razer Tomahawk has a larger standard SFX power supply than Intel’s NUC 9 Extreme. Intel will sell Intel NUC modular computers through retailers such as Amazon and Newegg, so consumers can buy them and insert them into the chassis.
Razer said the full system will be shipped in June. Although the price has not yet been determined, it starts at just over $2,000 and includes a Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB SSD and an unreleased RTX 20 Series GPU.
