There’s no argument that Alienware’s Area 51 Gaming PC is an excellent platform for AMD’s upcoming Ryzen Threadripper debut, but it seemed odd that AMD would make Alienware the initial exclusive big box retailer to carry the processor yet allow Alienware to not be exclusive to AMD Threadripper in return. Dell’s new Inspiron 5675 Gaming Desktop may explain why.
While the Alienware Area 51 clearly took the spotlight at E3, Dell also more quietly revealed the Inspiron 5675 Gaming Desktop at the booth next door. While the Inspiron 5675 Gaming Desktop isn’t as attention grabbing as the Alienware Area 51, it’s still very [...]

This week Corsair unveiled the company’s first ever fully built gaming PC, the aptly named Corsair One. While the One does represent a venture outside of Corsair’s usual product lineup, it is not necessarily outside of the company’s comfort zone as enthusiast gaming has been in Corsair’s DNA since the very beginning. With that said, the Corsair One is an impressive piece of engineering and design.
The small-form-factor tower packs quite a bit inside, featuring not one, but two ultra thin, 240mm closed-loop water coolers which cool down both the CPU and the GPU and are supplied air by the tastefully designed ventilation holes at [...]
Corsair recently put up a teaser for its latest project known as the Corsair ONE.
The leading peripherals and PC component manufacturer is looking to dip its toes into the pre-built PC market after previously inching towards the pre-built realm with their Bulldog PC which was launched last year in a barebones or DIY kit configuration. The Corsair ONE however, changes the game as it’s not only pre-built, but it’s also the first Corsair system designed for the desktop.
From the limited images they’ve shown so far, the ONE has a design that’s very typical of Corsair’s traditional design language sporting a futuristic yet [...]

With CES closing in on us in the next week, early tech announcements have been rapidly circulating online and one of the most interesting is Gigabyte’s BRIX platform with the addition of the GB-GZ1DTi7-1070-NK-GW and the GB-GZ1DTi7-1080-NK-GW.
With a physical footprint of just 276 mm x 384 mm x 128 mm, the Gigabyte BRIX GT series is in competition with the Asus G20 and MSI Vortex, both of which offer stellar performance within a tiny package.
