CORSAIR and Clutch Gaming Partner to Move Esports Into High Gear

CORSAIR , a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced a major new partnership with Clutch Gaming, a professional esports organization with a team in the North American League of Legends Championship Series. Clutch Gaming is the first venture into the world of esports by Tilman Fertitta, the owner of the Houston Rockets of the NBA, an American basketball team with an enormous international presence and a championship pedigree.

Clutch Gaming, a brand-new team to the NA LCS in 2018, has already tasted success by placing 4th in the 2018 Spring Split, setting them up for a chance to make the 2018 League of Legends World Championship in South Korea. Clutch Gaming is innovating in the esports space by bringing the same empirical, analytics-based performance approach the Rockets use to the world of esports. The ability to analyze player performance beyond the skin-deep views of what public perception allows them to drill deeper into analysis that goes way beyond GPM (Gold per minute) or KDA (Kill/Death/Assist Ratio).

Corsair Launches MP300 Budget M.2 NVMe 3D TLC NAND SSD Series

Corsair today launched a new series of SSDs under their brand. The MP300 carry a more budget affiliation, offering a high-speed NVMe solution (which Corsair says is up to three times faster than SATA) for relatively low prices. Like other budget NVMe solutions, the Corsair MP300 runs on a PCIe 2x bus, instead of the higher performance 4x (which carries higher cost for the controllers, hence, the price savings).

With that bus, Corsair is quoting up to 1600 MB/s read speeds, and up to 1040 MB/s writes, which are still more than enough for mainstream workloads. The usage of 3D TLC NAND also helps in the cost savings, naturally - and doesn't carry the same performance and longevity issues as it may have had in its inception. Corsair is selling these drives at 120, 240, 480 and 960 GB capacities, at €59.99, €94.99, €154.99, and €314.99 respectively.

Corsair Developing Gaming Monitors

Corsair has diversified a lot from its origins as a memory module manufacturer, and the company can easily make up everything other than the processor, motherboard, and monitor in your gaming desktop. That list of exclusions is about to get smaller, as the company is looking to enter the gaming monitors market. The move came to light as an Indeed job listing by the company reveal that it's looking for product managers for monitors. The listing reveals that Corsair's foray into monitors is still at a nascent stage, and it still needs to figure out a strategy to approach this market. We give it at least a year before Corsair can have a product lineup. Knowing Corsair, it could adopt a bottom-down approach, with a high-end product launch first.

Corsair Obsidian 1000D Leaked to Amazon

It's been a while since Corsair pushed the upper end of its Obsidian series high-end PC cases. The Obsidian 900D has held the fort since 2013, but could be getting dated in the wake of newer standards such as tempered glass, RGB lighting, newer connectors, etc. Corsair is careful not to just make a mash of glass and RGB lighting; when designing its upcoming flagship case, the Obsidian 1000D super-tower (model: CC-9011115-WW), which leaked to the web thanks to an eager Amazon listing, in which it's priced at USD $500.

The rear I/O can be configured to be perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard with 8+2 slots, or parallel to its plane, with 5+2 slots. You can install E-ATX and everything smaller, but longer 10-slot form-factors such as HPTX and XL-ATX are a notable exclusion.
