The latest version of the CHRONOS desktop comes with up to an Intel Core i9 processor or up to an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. On the graphics side of things, the CHRONOS comes with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, which looks to be one of the best graphics cards if it lives up to the hype. The CHRONOS starts at $1,449.

The CHRONOS is upgradable, allowing people to use different motherboards and to use full-length graphics cards such as the RTX 3090. Those full-length cards fit into a compact body that measures 15.5" (39.4 cm) (L) x 11" (28 cm) (W) x 7" (17.8 cm) (H).
