Corsair One vertical mini ITX PC refreshed with AMD Ryzen 5000X or Intel Rocket Lake CPUs plus Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics
Corsair’s One mini ITX vertical PC is getting refreshed with AMD’s Ryzen 5000 desktop-grade CPUs, as well as Intel’s freshly released Rocket Lake processors, plus a GPU upgrade in the form of the RTX 3080. Corsair is keeping the same compact 12-liter chassis from previous versions, as the processors and GPUs are cooled via liquid loops, which also allow for some generous overclocking headroom.
Interestingly enough, the Intel-based i200 model listed on the official Corsair site does not integrate the top-of-the-line i9-11900K processor. It only comes with an i7-11700K that has the same 8-core / 16-thread configuration, but has slightly lower clocks and supports slower RAM. This system includes a Z490 mini ITX mobo, 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, 1 TB NVMe SSD and 2 TB HDD storage combo, 2.5 Gb Ethernet + Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.1, and a Corsair SF750 power supply.
The AMD-based a200 model comes with a B550 mini ITX mobo and up to a Ryzen 9 5900X CPU. Otherwise, the features are almost the same from the i200 model, except for the port selection that replaces the Thunderbolt connector with a USB-C and a few more USB-A ports. However, the Intel model only features a Thunderbolt 3 port, even though the Rocket Lake platform supports Thunderbolt 4. Other than that, the port panels are identical and include: 2x 5 Gbps USB-A + 1x 10 Gbps USB-C + combo audio jack on the front, while on the back we find 1x 10 Gbps USB-A, GbE jack, HD audio jacks, 3x DP + 1x HDMI video outputs.
As far as availability and pricing are concerned, the One a200 with Ryzen 9 5900X can already be ordered for US$3,799.99, while the i200 model is listed at US$3,599.99, but is not yet available. Corsair is also expected to add the more powerful Intel version with the i9-11900K CPU and a few more affordable a200 versions powered by the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X processors.
