Last January, we confirmed you Razer’s awesome-looking Tomahawk Elite desktop PC case, with its gull-wing doorways and auto-lifting lid for extreme warmth.
This January, I instructed you concerning the beautiful Razer Tomahawk prebuilt desktop, with slide-out upgradable Intel NUC Aspect modules and area for the newest GPUs regardless of its tiny 10-liter body.
So far as we will inform, no product referred to as the “Razer Tomahawk” has really ever shipped. However that isn’t preserving Razer from making an attempt once more in the present day with a pair of practical-looking PC instances for rolling your individual system.
The brand new $199 Razer Tomahawk A1 (ATX) and $179 Tomahawk M1 (Mini-ITX) are pretty commonplace if fairly versatile instances with a couple of options that set them aside — primarily, a pair of tempered glass panels with rear hinges to allow them to swivel backwards like suicide doorways, and will also be lifted proper off.
The instances function Razer’s Chroma RGB lighting beneath, they usually’ve additionally bought creature comforts like devoted drive bays and mounting spots for two.5-inch SSDs, a lot of cable administration, and — within the case of the ATX model — area for a 360mm radiator up entrance and as much as a 240mm radiator up prime.
Every case comes additionally with a USB-C port up prime with 3.2 Gen 2 speeds, devoted mic and three.5mm combo jacks and two USB-A ports, and a magnetic mud filter.
Razer has additionally confirmed to us that the brand new instances are fabricated from metal — not aluminum like the corporate’s advertising supplies initially stated. Right here’s the proper spec sheet:
At 367.2 x 206 x 321.5mm, the Tomahawk Mini-ITX received’t win any awards for being notably small — regardless of solely supporting Mini-ITX/DTX motherboards and SFX/SFX-L energy provides — but it surely ought to match most Nvidia RTX 3080 playing cards in the marketplace with its 320mm of graphics card room.
Razer’s Mini-ITX chassis is accessible for preorder in the present day at Razer.com, delivery in November, with the ATX model coming someday this fall. I wouldn’t count on to ever hear concerning the Tomahawk Elite or Tomahawk NUC once more: as of yesterday, the NUC was just listed as a “concept” on Razer’s web site, and practically two years later, the Elite was nonetheless a “notify me” product.
Razer says it is also working with motherboard producers to combine Chroma RGB lighting, with the primary AMD boards from ASRock coming in This fall.
Correction October 12th, 1:16 AM ET: Razer’s briefing supplies stated the instances had been fabricated from aluminum, however the firm says they’re really fabricated from metal. We’ve additionally up to date the scale of the Mini-ITX case primarily based on the corporate’s revised spec sheet — it’s barely bigger than initially talked about.
