Razer adopts Intel’s “Nuc gaming” concept

We’ve regularly told you about Intel’s NUC division and its products, which are discreet but far more innovative than the brand’s current range of CPUs. It seems that Razer has more or less the same analysis, since the company has just launched a PC that is obviously very high-end, based on the Compute Element in i9-9980HK. To complete the package, Razer also drew on something it had already presented: its Razer Tomahawk chassis, a product that we were able to discover at CES 2020. Razer Tomahawk Nuc concept

The Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop: an extension of Intel’s NUC?

Razer therefore intends to market a complete machine under the reference Tomahawk Gaming Desktop which, as its name suggests, uses its Razer Tomahawk chassis measuring 210 x 150 x 365 mm (11.5 litres). The heart of this PC is therefore built around the Intel NUC 9 Extreme Compute Element. As a reminder, the Compute Element brings together on the same board the processor, RAM and SSD, operating on a sort of “backplane” with its PCIe connector. This version is equipped with an i9-9980HK CPU ( 8 cores / 16 threads with 5Ghz max frequency ).

A solution that Intel had not retained since the NUC Ghost Canyon, shown here in Millenium declination, since the chassis is in an ultra-compact format of only 5 litres (238 x 216 x 96 mm). A truly ultra-compact PC but only capable of receiving certain Mini ITX graphics cards. Millenium NUC

Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop: a look but additional constraints?

Razer has therefore decided to free itself from the basic specifications set by the Intel concept, in particular the silence and ultra-compactness, to open up to all the graphics cards on the market. Razer Tomahawk Intel Nuc A paradoxical choice, since the chassis takes up the dimensions of the initial version in mini ITX while abandoning the evolutivity that this standard could provide…and all this at the price of a volume twice as big as that of the Ghost Canyon. It’s true that at this moment, the RTX 30xx doesn’t seem to be able to fit in a 5 litre chassis.
