At the Consumer Electronics Show 2020, Living Room PC manufacturer STEIGER DYNAMICS launches the liquid cooled FORGE compact Gaming PC. Measuring only 6.7 x 18.5 x 10.8 inches (17 x 47 x 27.4 cm (WxHxD), 22 L volume), FORGE feels equally home on desks, TV cabinets and other areas with limited space. FORGE can be placed vertically or horizontally while providing equal cooling performance and quietness levels.

Based on a modified Phanteks Evolve Shift chassis, FORGE features a high-quality, vibration-optimized, sand-blasted aluminium design with side mesh or windows. FORGE is available in Satin Black and Anthracite Grey color options. 120 and 140 mm CPU liquid cooling options and 140 mm case fans allow for maximum air flow and ultra-quiet operation at idle and low loads. This gives FORGE the capability to handle latest generation overclocked Intel CPUs up to 10 cores/20 threads and the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X with 16 cores/32 threads as well full-size NVIDIA graphics cards up to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.



Highlights:
  • Configurations starting from $749
  • Compact design that allows for horizontal or vertical placement
  • CPUs up to 10-Core Intel i9-10900K (once available) and 16-Core AMD Ryzen 9 3950X
  • NVIDIA graphics cards up to GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with HDMI 2.0b, HDR10, G-Sync and HDCP 2.2
  • Configurable with up to two M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs and 1x 3.5" HDD or 2x 2.5" HDDs/SSDs
  • Optional RAID1 and 0 arrays for SSDs and HDDs
  • Standard Gigabit Ethernet, Dual-band ac Wi-Fi and BT 4.0 (or higher)
  • Optional, syncable case, motherboard, memory and cooler RGB LEDs
Liquid cooled Intel and AMD processors, combined with M.2 SSD system drives and high-speed DDR4 memory give FORGE the performance of a high-end, large desktop PC in a compact housing. NVIDIA GeForce GTX and RTX graphics cards allow for content creation, all-ultra native 4K gaming, high-quality 4K streaming, and real-time madVR video upsampling. FORGE fully supports lossless bitstreaming of multi-channel surround sound including Dolby ATMOS.

Specs and Pricing:
FORGE is available in three lines. The Pure line starts at $749 and caters to media center, audio and video enthusiasts and allows for 4K Blu-ray disc playback. Core and Reference lines start at $1,199, feature AMD and Intel CPUs and are tailored to gamers and content creators.

FORGE is available to order from the Steiger Dynamics website now.

This thing is relatively huge compared to similar SFF cases in a sandwich style, cooling and ventilation look limited as well.

Sliger (and others) have far more compelling and similar options, I'll pass.

Wow, it didn't even dawn on me that it's a near copy to the Phanteks Shift line.
Just noticed it says so in the article too. So it apparently IS the actual Shift case. Modded... or destroyed, whichever you prefer :p

Still about as interesting as watching paint dry.

It'd be interesting to see some thermals from the top-end CPU offerings from both camps, when they're being cooled with what amounts to a slightly thicker than regular 120mm AIO.... I bet its atrocious and the GPU will throttle.





What a waste of money.

I wholeheartedly agree. I just ordered a Sliger SM580, so I'm not in the market anyway. The one prebuilt system that really appeals to me is the Corsair One, but it's not available as an empty case.

That poor, poor gpu.... What did it ever do to deserve such a tortuous fate..

That would be a winning bet. After seeing Shift thermals, I have completely written that case off and am currently looking at the new SV590 from Sliger once they can get production ramped up to meet demand.
