A company like Razer has a controversial reputation. On the one hand, this company is engaged in the production of really attractive and easy-to-use gaming accessories and not only. But on the other hand, the quality of this very product leaves much to be desired. But one way or another, the aforementioned manufacturer has been saying for many years that the future lies precisely with special modular computers, the outdated parts of which can be replaced as simply as possible. And finally, just now, after showing us the most varied concepts of such a PC, which were ultimately swept aside, Razer is ready to present a truly modified branded modular computer.
And in general, this is quite an important event for the company, because it has been trying to create a case suitable for its purposes for at least the last three years. The first modular PC from the Razer Tomahawk is called. And yes, this is exactly the same PC that we saw at the beginning of this year at CES 2020. And if we talk about the design of this computer, then its simplicity and minimalism are immediately striking. Inside, this PC has two PCIe slots at once - one is needed to install a full-size GPU, and the other for the Intel NUC Element board, which contains a processor, RAM, storage, sound card and almost everything else that you just need to assembly of a fully functional PC.
The manufacturer has already announced that it will be selling a version of the Razer Tomahawk with a NUC Element module that includes a Core i9-9980HK Coffee Lake processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB NVMe SSD, and a 2TB hard drive. ... And yes, the good news is that the amount of RAM and permanent storage can be upgraded at any time by installing much more capacious solutions. But if you want to update the processor installed in your NUC Element, then you cannot do this. The only recourse is to purchase a newer compatible NUC board from Intel. But be that as it may, do not forget about another advantage of the Razer Tomahawk, which is the ability to install a full-fledged graphics processor, whose size can be 320 × 140 mm.
The company itself offers several options for video cards that it can install in the Tomahawk, among which there is even an Nvidia GeForce GTX 3080 Founders Edition, which is not so easy to get. It is also worth noting that this PC comes with a 750 W power supply and uses active cooling. Well, if you are worried about the fact that it may not have enough ports, then you should not worry about this. The Tomahawk has 4 USB-A 3.2 ports, as well as 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports. Moreover, there is even built-in support for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. If you want to buy this PC, then get ready to give $ 2,400, which will lack a discrete GPU - you will have to buy it yourself. However, if you want to buy the PC version right away with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 3080 Founders Edition, it will cost you $ 3,200.
