We have seen Razer sell gaming mice, keyboards, headsets, and their Blade laptops, but they have not yet tried to make a gaming desktop PC. It will soon change since this summer we will get to see this beautiful Razer Tomahawk, which is said to be a fully upgradeable gaming PC which is actually pretty small (10L volume).
Aluminum, Tempered Glass and an Intel NUC – the Tomahawk Ready to Be Launched in June
This is not your regular desktop PC. We are talking about Razer, always coming up with something to stun its fans. This time, they chose to make some room for an Intel NUC instead of a traditional motherboard, which means we are looking at a modular computer.
The Tomahawk has an up to 45W Core i9-9980HK mobile CPU, comes with cooling, and has slots for memory and storage. It also has a Wi-Fi 6 radio, many ports and everything that is needed to power a desktop PC. Intel will sell all the NUC Element boards separately and users can slot them in the Tomahawk.
Razer stated that a prebuilt system will be able to be shipped this June, with a starting price of nearly $2,300. Gamers that want a desktop PC from Razer for that kind of money will receive in terms of specs the following: a Core i7, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of solid-state storage and an undisclosed RTX 20-series GPU. For a lot more money, you can choose Core i9 with 64GB of RAM and a GeForce RTX 2080 Super.
Intel will be making upgrades for a few years so that the modules can be swapped in the future and many other partners have joined the project. For instance, Cooler Master will also come with its own NUC Element enclosure and prebuilt systems in 2020.
