Corsair has expanded its fluctuate of compact desktops to include three new fashions, the Corsair One i145 and that i164, and Corsair One Skilled i182. Each one is powered by a liquid-cooled ninth know-how Intel Core processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics, housed throughout the acquainted 12-liter chassis Corsair has been using as a result of it launched its One sequence in 2017.
The distinctive One earned a excessive mark as soon as we reviewed it quite a lot of years up to now, and so did the i160 configuration we evaluated earlier this 12 months—the latter model made our itemizing of the very best gaming PCs. We weren’t as enamored by the One Professional i180, considerably for the worth.
On the very best end, the model new One Skilled i182 model is described as a “workstation-class” PC. It retains the an identical Core i9-9920X and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti as found throughout the i180, nonetheless doubles the memory to 64GB of DDR4-2666 RAM.
Corsair moreover mentions an “updated storage configuration” consisting of a 960GB NVMe SSD and 2TB HDD, nonetheless it is not clear what exactly is completely totally different—that exact same combination was found throughout the i180 model we reviewed in March.
Pricing is a tad cheaper, a minimum of compared with earlier this 12 months. The One i182 is available to preorder for $4,499.99 (it launches subsequent week). That’s the an identical price as a result of the i180, though it listed for $4,999.99 as soon as we reviewed it. Nonetheless pricey, clearly, nonetheless it least points are trending within the correct path (decrease price and additional RAM). We would rely on an substitute to 10th Gen Intel Cascade Lake-X processors to most likely drop the worth pretty a bit on the top-tier config (when and if Corsair chooses to switch the One to utilize any of those components).
The non-pro fashions are bit tamer beneath the hood, and cheaper apart from. Corsair’s One i145 choices an i7-9700Okay processor and RTX 2080 GPU, whereas the i164 bumps points as a lot as an i9-9900Okay and RTX 2080 Ti. Every embody 32GB of DDR4 memory, and the an identical 960GB NVMe SSD + 2TB HDD combo.
