For those PC newbies, assembling a powerful desktop can be more than just intimidating. It’s hard to navigate through all types of cables, slots, and components, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can do a pretty big (and expensive) mess.
To simplify the whole process, Razer came to the CES 2020 to introduce a new concept of Gaming Desktop – a compact PC gaming solution that makes expandable components easy to use without tools. Called the Razer Tomahawk, the advantage of this product is the size of the casing that is classified as mini and based on Intel NUC.
Razer Tomahawk uses the Tomahawk N1 chassis which is known to have a compact design. Although it is a gaming PC, the dimensions make it easy for gamers to move it or put it anywhere without taking up much space.
Most importantly, this desktop carries a modular concept so it’s easier to disassemble the hardware. Another advantage is that there are not many cables which are usually an obstacle for gamers while assembling a gaming desktop. In fact, Razer claims that the owner of the Tomahawk doesn’t need any tools to open and replace hardware such as GPU or storage.
Razer Tomahawk is actually mini PC in disguise, the gamers can install a full-size graphics card. On its official website, Razer explains that gamers can choose the Nvidia RTX 20 Series graphics card.
As for the processor, there are options for the 9th generation Intel Core i9-9980HK. Gamers can also install dual-channel DDR4 RAM up to 64 GB. With such a combination of hardware, Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is able to run today’s AAA games optimally.
Not limited to playing games, the Razer Tomahawk is also suitable for content creators who often took the whole task video editing or making animations into the new level.
As for the availability of ports and slots, Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop provides two M.2 Key M slots, two Thunderbolts 3 ports, six USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A ports, two Intel 10/100/1000 Mbps (i219-LM and i210- AT) Ethernet ports, and HDMI 2.0a connector.
For the gamers or content creators who are interested in taking the Razer Tomahawk home, the company reportedly will launch their new gaming desktop before mid-2020. Unfortunately, the company has not yet disclosed the exact date of the launch or how much it will cost on the market.
