CORSAIR Announces the ONE PC

CORSAIR, one of the most renowned manufacturers of PC hardware, has recently announced the first in what is expected to be a new line of products: a fully-assembled, ready-to-run PC.

CORSAIR developed a new case for their ONE system, taking in cues from their previously-launched Carbide 330R and Obsidian 550D cases, though there is some increased attention to detail and blue accents in this ONE case. The top and bottom have a finned structure reminiscent of a large heatsink, while the side panels are perforated with triangular ventilation holes. Apparently, no windowed side-panel was used, which is slightly at odds with the industry-approved "gamer" aesthetic, which CORSAIR seems to have nevertheless strived to achieve. The tower seems unable to accommodate full-sized ATX boards, though that isn't necessarily a requirement for a high-end system. The Corsair ONE features an HDMI port on the front in addition to the usual USB, which is probably there to service VR headsets.

Pricing and availability for the Corsair ONE have not been announced, which isn't that strange, considering no specifications were announced either. Expect to hear more from this one in the coming months.

Corsair Vengeance RGB Series Memory Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of Corsair Vengeance RGB series DDR4 memory. Built on the same product design as the Vengeance RGB series the company launched at Computex 2016 (June), these DIMMs feature RGB LED lighting elements, with software control directly through the DIMM interface, without needing any additional wires or physical button pushes. Each DIMM can display a single color from the 16.7 million-color RGB palette at a given time. These DIMMs could come in densities of 8 GB and 16 GB, and in various DDR4 speeds, and in single-module, dual-channel, and quad-channel kits.

Corsair TX-M Series Power Supply Series Pictured

Corsair unveiled its TX-M line of mid-range semi-modular power supplies. Based on the existing 2016 TX-series, these units feature fixed 24-pin ATX and 4+4 pin EPS connectors, and modular PCIe, SATA, and Molex/Berg connectors, with flat cabling for these connectors and the EPS connector. Compared to older generations of TX-series PSUs, these units boast of 80 Plus Gold efficiency, all-Japanese capacitor innards, rifle-bearing fans, and 7-year warranties. The series includes 550W (TX550M), 650W (TX650M), 750W (TX750M), and 850W (TX850M) variants.

Corsair Unveils New HX and TX-M Series PSUs, and the Bulldog 2.0 Chassis

Corsair Also Announces the Scimitar Pro Mouse

In addition to its K95 RGB Platinum keyboard, Corsair have also announced an update to their well-received Scimitar gaming mouse. Based on the award-winning Key Slider 12 side-button SCIMITAR RGB, the SCIMITAR PRO RGB adds onboard profile storage and a native 16,000 DPI PMW3367 optical sensor developed in partnership with PIXART for precise control in single DPI steps for ultra-accurate, high-speed tracking.

Corsair Reveals K95 RGB Platinum Keyboard

Even though Corsair has already launched a K95 RGB Keyboard, the company apparently wasn't convinced that that was the best of what they could achieve; as such, Corsair has announced what they deem to be "the true successor to the K70: the K95 RGB Platinum.

This version features 8 MB of on-board memory to let owners save up to three profiles for lighting and macros, so that they are carried with your keyboard and you don't have to fiddle with the settings yet again if you change computers. There are now only 6 macro keys located on the left side of the keyboard, a step-down from the 18 offered in the previous K95 - but evey main key is now re-assignable, which means that you can do the same amount of work, without having those extra 12 keys taking up space and increasing the keyboard length . In terms of the ever-present lighting features, the K95 RGB Platinum features a lighting zone called LightEdge, which is located along the top edge of the keyboard. It's essentially a long strip of light created by 16 RGB LEDs, and you can program its lighting patterns and colors separately from the rest of the keyboard.

CORSAIR Readies Up for New 7th Generation Intel Core Processors

CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast memory, high-performance gaming hardware and PC components today announced its readiness for the new 7th Generation Intel Core processors and Intel 200 series motherboards, paving the way for a new generation of performance PCs.

CORSAIR is the industry leader in high-speed Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory, and with more Intel XMP certified DDR4 kits than any other manufacturer, CORSAIR is committed to compatibility and ensuring memory runs at the speed it claims. What's more, all CORSAIR current dual-channel DDR4 kits are fully compatible with both the new 7th Generation Intel Core Processors and new Intel 200 Series Chipsets, so you can easily choose the memory that's right for your build.

New Cherry MX Black Silent Switches Announced; No Longer Exclusive to Corsair

Cherry GmbH, the German-American computer peripheral-device maker best known for its mechanical keyboard switches, has announced a new addition to their Silent line of switches. The new Silent Black switches join the company's Silent line-up of Silent Red, Silent RGB Red, and Silent RGB Black. Cherry MX Silent switches are not particularly new, but until now, they were limited to linear Red switches, and were used exclusively on Corsair products (such as the STRAFE RGB Keyboard). Now, though, Corsair's exclusivity has come to an end, leaving other companies free to implement the Silent switches onto their own keyboards.

The "silent" operation is achieved via a rubber pad which dampens the sound of both the switch bottoming out and the rebound noise. Otherwise, the switches' specifications are identical to those of their non-silent counterparts. It's also worth noting that both Red and Black switches are linear, meaning there's no extra click within the key travel. The Silent Black switches are specified for 60 cN +/- 20 cN actuation force (against the 40 cN of their Silent Red counterparts), 2mm +/-0.6 pretravel, 4mm /-0.4 actuator travel, <5 ms bounce time, and are rated at 50 million key presses.

NVIDIA PC Gaming Revival Kit Detailed

Used to game in the 2000s, through your college, and then "life happened"? Want to turn your 4-year old Dell into a gaming PC, but its 350W generic OEM power supply is holding you back? For these things and other, NVIDIA is selling a "PC Gaming Revival Kit," a package consisting of a graphics card, an SSD, a PSU, and a game, to help you bring PC gaming back into your lives. The kit includes hardware to turn just about any desktop with a SATA port and PCI-Express slot, into a 1080p gaming machine (provided it meets some basic requirements of the graphics card).

Available in the EU, priced at 399€, the kit includes an MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GT OC graphics card, a factory-overclocked GTX 1060 3GB card with a dual-fan cooling solution; a Corsair Force LE 240GB solid-state drive, a Corsair CX450M partially modular 450W power supply, an NVIDIA GeForce t-shirt, and a copy of "Gears of War 4." Bought separately, the graphics card goes for 229€, and PSU for 51€, the SSD for 77€, and the game for 45€, total: 402€, so it's not that big a value, but could point a lot of people in the right direction. It could also make for a decent X'mas gift.
