Unveiled at CES 2020 in January, Razer’s first desktop is finally available for preorder. Based on Intel’s NUC 9 Extreme, the Tomahawk looks like a smallish aluminium box with tempered glass sides. The front slides out like a drawer: just slide it out to get unlimited, tool-free access to all the insides. The back has four USB-A ports, two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a 2.5mm Line Out / TOSLink, 3.5mm headset port. It comes with a 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9980HK processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 512GB of SSD storage and one 2TB hard drive. You can order it without a graphics card, or pre-loaded with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition. Memory and storage can be swapped out, unlike the processor, unless Intel comes out with a more powerful NUC to replace the existing one. The Tomahawk Gaming Desktop isn’t cheap: it starts at USD2,400 without the graphics card and runs up to USD3,200 with the RTX 3080. And, of course, RGB LED lighting is standard.

Windows Central, Dan Thorp-Lancaster, “Razer’s new Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is a tiny tower of modular power.”
