In its yearly round of refreshes, Corsair has taken to CES 2019 to unveil its One Pro i180 Compact Workstation PC. Perhaps geared more towards gaming enthusiasts, this is the first in the Corsair One range to house an Intel Core i9 processor and Nvidia’s RTX 2080Ti graphics card.
The compact Corsair One range has always fared well here at KitGuru, praised for their aesthetic, low noise and smooth performance. The Corsair One Pro i180 looks to follow in its predecessors’ footsteps, with a liquid cooled 12-core i9-9920X boosted to 4.5GHz and Nvidia’s new ray tracing technology. Although users will undoubtedly get to choose from a variety of options, the One Pro i180 holds up to 32GB of memory across four DIMM slots, a 960GB M.2 SSD as primary storage and a secondary 2TB HDD for good measure.
There are a few curiosities surrounding Corsair’s “Workstation” designation, from opting for an i9 over an Intel Xeon processor to Nvidia’s mainstream RTX series instead of Quadro. Corsair even completes the device with RGB lighting, controlled by its updated iCUE application.
While the Corsair One Pro i180 Compact Workstation PC is the flagship of the new i100-Series at a massive $4,999, the range is rounded out with the i160 and i140. Both are housed in the same redesigned case with liquid cooling on the CPU and GPU, however the i160 includes an Intel Core i9-9900K processor for $3,599, and the i140 bookends the line-up with a Core i7-9700K and RTX 2080 for $2,999.
The Corsair One i140 is already available in North America, while the Pro i180 and i160 are ready to pre-order ahead of their 12th February shipping date. International release dates have yet to be confirmed.
KitGuru Says: I’ve always liked the look of the Corsair One line, but the expense has continuously put me off. Still, the range has always been praised here at KitGuru for the space each iteration saves and their near-silent operation. How do you feel about the Corsair One Pro i180?
