The new Corsair One is a compact, beastly gaming PC

Corsair is a company that you usually associate with enthusiast PC components and accessories, but the company is taking that one step further today with the launch of its own gaming PC. Called the Corsair One, the desktop rig offers plenty of pizazz from its compact design, but it backs that up with plenty of power as well.

Inside the One, you'll find Intel's latest Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz processors, 16GB of RAM, up to 960GB of SSD storage, and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 graphics. Liquid cooling is also packed in by default for the CPU, and can be added for the GPU if you step up to the One Pro. All of this is bundled inside of a pretty attractive black case that stands 380mm tall. Corsair has also done quite a bit of work to make sure the One operates quietly, promising a noise level of 20dBa at idle.

The company notes that the One is built with all standard-size parts, making it upgradeable in the future. That's great for anyone who likes to tinker around, but it's possible the engineering Corsair did on the case may make upgrades a slight bit more difficult than your average gaming tower.

The One can be had in any one of 4 configurations, ranging from the base One to the One Pro and One Pro Ti. The differences mainly lie in the amount of storage space — though the base One also lacks GPU liquid cooling. The One Pro Ti steps things up a bit further by throwing in an NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti GPU. All of that power comes at a price, however, with the base One starting at $1,799 and the One Pro Ti topping out at $2,599. All things considered, however, that's not too terrible for a powerful gaming rig.
