Many gaming fans are left fuming when they were unable to secure the next-gen consoles, the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5. But who needs damn consoles when you can have an equally powerful gaming rig that looks just as sleek, if not more power and sleeker?
OK. Maybe not everyone can afford a $2,000 or more gaming PC, but if you do, Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop, an Intel NUC-based Small Form Factor (SFF) gaming PC, could be a very attractive proposition.
The obvious boon here is the ability to upgrade components as and when they become available (as long as they are supported). That’s something consoles cannot offer.
In the case of the Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop, it packs some serious specs, including a 9th-gen Intel Core i9-9980HK Coffee Lake 8-core CPU (2.4 GHz/5.0 GHz, 16 Thread, 16 MB cache) with Hyperthreading, 16 GB DDR4 2667 MHz RAM, 512 GB NVMe SSD – in addition to a 2 TB HDD, an additional M.2 slot, NVIDIA Founder’s Edition RTX 3080, dual top-mounted fans, Razer Chroma RGB, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, and 750 W PSU.
I/Os offered are 4x USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports with Type-A interface, 2x Thunderbolt 3 ports with Type-C interface, and a 3.5 mm line out/optical out and a 3.5 mm headset port.
All these awesome features are packed into a compact, all-metal, modular case with tool-less sled system and of course, support for full-sized GPU, as you may have already noticed.
It is worthy to mention that the base price of US$2,399.99 is without GPU. If opted with the aforementioned NVIDIA Founder’s Edition GPU, the Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop will run you back at US$3199.99.
Also, you can also elect your own GPU and both the RAM and storage are upgradeable if you so desire. Pricey, it is, but no worry. You will have sometime to think it over because, last checked, it is sold out. Yes, already. Just to be sure you get it the next time it is back in stock, you may want to consider signing up to be notified of the availability.
