Corsair One Pro i180: New Flagship Mini-PC with i9-9920X and RTX 2080 Ti

Corsair has expanded its Corsair ONE line of mini-PCs, aiming
for the higher end of the market. The Corsair One Pro i180 is
equipped with Intel’s 12-core high-end desktop processor as well
as NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card, which is why the
manufacturer calls it a compact workstation. In addition, the
company has also introduced new variants under the Corsair One i140
and Corsair One i160 naming system.

Corsair launched its first own-brand Corsair One systems in
early 2017. The concept of the system was to take advantage of the
company’s know-how: Corsair knows how to build cases with good
ventilation, it produces SFF PSUs, it produces custom liquid
cooling, and other components. With the Corsair ONE, the company
managed to create a Mini-ITX platform capable of handling
high-performance components. This year at CES, the system is
getting a refresh and expanding into several different
variants.

The dark grey
Corsair One Pro i180
is based on
ASRock’s X299E-ITX/ac
motherboard, Intel’s 12-core Core
i9-9920X processor and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics
card. The CPU and the GPU are cooled using separate AIO
implementations, dissipating a total of ~400 W of thermal power,
which is a notable achievement as we are talking about a 12-liter
PC.

Being aimed at prosumers, the Corsair One Pro i180 comes
equipped with 32 GB of quad-channel DDR4-2667 memory, a 960 GB M.2
PCIe/NVMe SSD, and a 2 TB 2.5-inch HDD. As for connectivity, the
compact PC features everything that the X299E-ITX/ac motherboard
and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti have, including Intel’s
Wireless-AC 8265 802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.2 controller, two GbE ports
(driven by Intel’s I219-V and I211-AT), six USB 3.0 Type-A
connectors, one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C
receptacle, a TRRS audio jack, and four display outputs (three
DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.0b).

It is important to note that due to customer feedback, the front
panel for this version of the Corsair One has been moved to the
bottom, rather than staying at the top.

Along with its top-of-the-line Corsair One Pro i180, the
manufacturer also released its
Corsair One i140 and Corsair One i160
systems. The One i140 is
powered by Intel’s eight-core Core i7-9700K processor accompanied
by NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080, whereas the One i160 is based on
Intel’s eight-core Core i9-9900K CPU paired with NVIDIA’s
GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Both PCs come with 32 GB of dual-channel
DDR4-2667 memory, a 480 GB PCIe/NVMe, a 2 TB HDD, and I/O
capabilities similar to those of the high-end HEDT machine.

Following the latest trends, all the new Corsair One PCs are
equipped with programmable RGB LED bars to make them look
attractive in the eyes of modern gamers.

Now, time to talk about prices of the latest Corsair One PCs.
The top-of-the-range Corsair One Pro i180 is going to cost a rather
whopping $5,000 when it becomes available later this year. The
“cheaper” Corsair One i140 and Corsair One i160 systems will be
priced at $3,000 and $3,600 (respectively) when the manufacturer
releases them in February. It is noteworthy that while Corsair’s
first-gen One systems used to be priced in the range between $1,800
and $2,400, the new-gen One PCs will retail for $3,000 – $5,000,
essentially competing against various ultra-high-end custom-built
PCs and brands.
