Every one is powered by a liquid-cooled ninth know-how Intel Core processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics, housed all through the acquainted 12-liter chassis Corsair has been utilizing because of it launched its One sequence in 2017.
The distinctive One earned a extreme mark as quickly as we reviewed it various years so far, and so did the i160 configuration we evaluated earlier this 12 months—the latter mannequin made our itemizing of the easiest gaming PCs. We weren’t as enamored by the One Skilled i180, significantly for the value.
On the easiest finish, the mannequin new One Expert i182 mannequin is described as a “workstation-class” PC. It retains the an an identical Core i9-9920X and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti as discovered all through the i180, nonetheless doubles the reminiscence to 64GB of DDR4-2666 RAM.
Corsair furthermore mentions an “up to date storage configuration” consisting of a 960GB NVMe SSD and 2TB HDD, nonetheless it isn’t clear what precisely is totally completely completely different—that very same mixture was discovered all through the i180 mannequin we reviewed in March.
Pricing is a tad cheaper, a minimal of in contrast with earlier this 12 months. The One i182 is obtainable to preorder for $4,499.99 (it launches subsequent week). That is the an an identical value because of the i180, although it listed for $4,999.99 as quickly as we reviewed it. Nonetheless expensive, clearly, nonetheless it least factors are trending inside the right path (lower value and extra RAM). We might depend on an substitute to tenth Gen Intel Cascade Lake-X processors to most definitely drop the value fairly a bit on the top-tier config (when and if Corsair chooses to change the One to make the most of any of these elements).
The non-pro fashions are bit tamer beneath the hood, and cheaper aside from. Corsair’s One i145 decisions an i7-9700Okay processor and RTX 2080 GPU, whereas the i164 bumps factors as rather a lot as an i9-9900Okay and RTX 2080 Ti. Each embody 32GB of DDR4 reminiscence, and the an an identical 960GB NVMe SSD + 2TB HDD combo.
