Corsair has been known as makers of PC accessories. From fans, casings, PSUs, and RAMs, the company has a very diverse set of products. Now, Corsair has jumped in head-first into the PC making business with the Corsair ONE, a mini-ITX form-factor gaming rig.
The Corsair ONE was first announced back in February. At the time, the company is still trying to market its bare-bone PC, the Bulldog. Although a fully-built PC is something new to Corsair, it sure did not leave any screw untightened.
The new Corsair ONE, with its tiny form factor, is packed with performance. The mini-ITX motherboard has the newest Intel Kaby Lake i7-7700 at the helm. Supporting the Intel processor is an air-cooled NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. With a RAM size of 16GB – DDR4 2400 – and SSD of 240GB paired with a 1TB spinning platter, this rig can cost anyone around $1,800. And that is only for the basic model. The Corsair ONE has one more model in the lineup.
The Corsair ONE PRO comes in two different versions. The only difference between the two is the type of storage used by each. The slightly cheaper PRO version has a 480GB SSD paired with a 2TB spinning disk hard drive. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line version has a 960GB SSD for storage. Just like the standard version, the PRO versions have a 16GB DDR4 2400 RAM. However, both of the PRO versions are equipped with an Intel i7-7700K processor and a water-cooled NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. The cheaper Corsair ONE PRO is priced at $2,299 while the top-tier one is only $100 more expensive.
When it comes to the build, the Corsair ONE is mainly built with black aluminium panel with the side covers active as air vents. The main fan is a 140mm exhaust situated at the top of the casing. On idle, the system gives only around 20dB of audible noise.
The Corsair ONE runs on Windows 10 Home Edition with all the necessary drivers including Corsair’s CUE customization tool. The system also has installers for popular game distribution platforms such as Steam, UPlay, Origin, and GoG Galaxy. Corsair’s first fully built PC will be distributed to major PC sellers as well as its own online store. For more updates on the Corsair ONE, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
