Corsair has updated its compact gaming PC lineup, Corsair One a200 and One i200 with the Ryzen 5000 series based on Zen 3 and 11th Gen Core chips based on Rocket Lake-S. Along with these latest processors, both the compact gaming PCs feature the latest GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card.
Among all Intel’s 11th generation processors, Corsair chose Intel’s flagship Core i9-11900K for its Intel-based PC, Corsair One i200. The i9 features 16MB of L3 cache and 8 core/16-thread processor. It operates on a base clock speed of 3.5GHz and can achieve a boost clock speed of up to 5.3GHz. It is surprising to see that Corsair did not use the refresh to upgrade the PC’s Z490 chipset-based mini-ITX motherboard to Intel’s Z590 chipset with native PCI Express 4.0 support.
As for the AMD variant, One a200, Corsair opted for the Ryzen 9 5900X that has 64MB of L3 cache and 12-core/24-thread CPU. It operates on a base clock speed of 3.7GHz base clock and can achieve a boost clock speed of up to 4.8GHz.
Both the compact PCs feature the same patented convection-assisted liquid cooling setup to keep the components cool. Moreover, they also share a 32GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM, a 1TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 solid-state drive + 2TB hard disk drive, along with a 750W SFX power supply that has 80 Plus Platinum certification.
As far as the connectivity options are concerned, the front side of both models has two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The back panel offers three DisplayPort outputs, one HDMI output, four USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports (Type-A and Type-C), 7.1-channel audio ports, and a 2.5G LAN port. The PCs also offer Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) wireless connectivity
