What you need to know

  • Corsair has officially launched its new One a200 and i200 gaming PCs.
  • Both come equipped with the powerful RTX 3080, a hard-to-find GPU.
  • The a200 packs an AMD Ryzen CPU while the i200 opts for an 11th-gen Intel processor.

If you're holding out for an RTX 30-series GPU amid the current market shortages, Corsair has you covered. In gamers' time of need, the company has arrived with two new pre-built gaming PCs: the Corsair One a200 and One i200, both of which come packed with an RTX 3080 for the low prices of $3,799.99 and $3,599.99, respectively.

But there's more to these two gaming powerhouses than their GPU. They're both equipped with 32 gigabytes of Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory, a one-terabyte SSD and two-terabyte HDD, and an SF750 80 Plus Platinum SFX power supply.

The CPUs are the big difference between the One a200 and i200. The a200 comes equipped with AMD's Ryzen 9 5900X CPU, whereas the i200 packs an 11th-gen Intel processor "up to a Core i9-11900K," according to Corsair. Without getting into the nitty-gritty of the two processors' differences and similarities, the bottom line is that either will power just about any game you throw at them without much issue, especially when coupled with an RTX 3080.

Corsair's site leaves it ambiguous as to when other configurations of the One a200 and i200 will become available, but given the customization-focused wording of the two pre-builts' store pages, it seems likely there will eventually be other models to satiate gamers looking for different PC innards.
