Razer Presents Tomahawk Gaming Desktop

At this year's CES, Razer presented its Tomahawk gaming desktop based on Intel's Compute Element - an all in one solution that packs CPU, RAM, and storage on the same PCB. The Tomahawk presents a complete solution, meaning that it is a pre-built PC that you can spec out to your liking. Available with up to Intel 9th generation Core i9, 64 GB of RAM and NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card, the Tomahawk is marketed as a powerful small form factor gaming PC.

When it comes to connectivity options, the Tomahawk is featuring all of the ports that are available on Ghost Canyon NUC 9, meaning two Thunderbolt 3 ports, six USB-A ports, one HDMI and two LAN ports, plus video output from the graphics card. On the PCB than connects the Compute Element and the GPU, there is also one PCIe 3.0 M.2 NVMe SSD slot available. Razer also announced that they will make this case available on its own to please all the DIYers, and it will be called the Tomahawk N1. For now, however, it is a pre-built only.

You'd be totally stuffed if synapse stopped working

So something about the size of an external GPU enclosure without the convenience of a separate laptop?

And stuck with having to run synapse as stated above?

Ooooook, sure why not... :wtf:

reading Razer: "thanks but no thanks"

"best in show" ... my @ss, usually i buy a Razer product (fortunately for me i don;t do it anymore) : i take bets on when it will break ahead of its warranty and how many times, ofc, this one is mostly made out of pieces that Razer didn't make themselves ( a bit like the Seiren and Seiren 2 whose only default are the price and the brand stamped over a Yeti blue ) so it might hold fine but the price tag... i wonder :rolleyes:

well, i am known to be unlucky with Razer (although not being the only one).

Is this an Intel GPU?...
looks more like a M.2 addon card than a GPU ... if it's one ... then Intel failed hard at design
maybe a network card or whatever

although i wonder how one can see or suspect a Intel GPU when they have barely just sent the Xe DG1 Software Development Vehicle out (which is awesomely and almost godlike at "The DG1-SDV is able to play games at 1080p" ) ...
