Razer has officially announced the details for its compact Tomahawk Gaming Desktop. The pint-sized powerhouse is now available for preorder, although it looks to have already sold out.
The Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is a compact PC that boasts the power of a much larger rig. Inside the tiny black box you’ll find an Intel Core i9-9980HK processor, 16GB of DDR4 memory, a 512GB SSD and 2TB HDD, and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU. It’s all powered by the NUC 9 Extreme Compute Element card that’s “docked into the Tomahawk’s unique sled-based design.”
This unique design also houses a PCIe slot for the Compute Element card, a 750W power supply, a 2TB HDD, and an extra PCIe slot for a graphics card if you decide to opt out of the RTX 3080. The interesting part of the design is how easy it makes accessing your internal components. Because the Tomahawk is so small, trying to reach in and work on your rig would have been nearly impossible. The sled design removes this problem by allowing the internals to slide out of the chassis for upgrades or maintenance.
The product features an impressive exterior design – as you’d expect of any $2,400+ computer – with CNC-milled aluminum, a matte black finish, and a bottom lined with Razer Chroma RGB. You’ll find all your ports on the back of the unit, including four USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 ports, two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, two gigabit ethernet ports, and a 3.5mm speakers/TOSLINK port.
Razer’s goal with the Tomahawk is to give gamers a powerful desktop rig that is “easy to store, maintain, and upgrade.” No doubt the specs on the Tomahawk seek to offer that experience, but you’re paying a hefty price for that reduced footprint. The base model clocks in at a massive $2,400, while opting for an RTX 3080 brings that to $3,200.
At the time of writing preorders are currently sold out, however you can sign up to be notified when inventory returns.
