Razer announces a Tomahawk Modular Gaming Desktop at CES 2020

Is modular desktop good for gamer?

"For Gamers, By Gamers" is a unique slogan of Razer for leading it to be a well-known gaming PC and peripheral maker. It produces speakers, keyboards, gaming tablets, and even seems to operate on a toaster. Razer joined the CES 2020 to show off several products and shocked us with a modular gaming desktop PC named the Razer Tomahawk.


The Razer Tomahawk was built in partnership with Intel and is, in fact, the Intel NUC 9 Extreme Compute Element, the secret behind its small size and modularity.

The Razer Tomahawk will pack up to an Intel Core i9 CPU, 64GB RAM, and WiFi 6 with that Intel NUC at its core. Additionally, the NUC adds a range of ports to the Razer Tomahawk, including 2x Thunderbolt 3, 2x 1G Ethernet, 2x HDMI 2.0A, 6x USB 3.2 Gen 2.

The Razer Tomahawk will release with the RTX series, with the high-end Tomahawk packing in the RTX 2080 Super GPU. Furthermore, as this is a modular gaming desktop, users will be able to swap the GPU to a new one whenever they wish.


By the way, the same can be done with the Intel NUC inside this computer, so when it's time to upgrade the processor, it's nearly as easy as swapping a module and swapping with a better CPU and more RAM in a new module. Intel says it is planning for at least a couple of years to support the Tomahawk, and other manufacturers, such as Cooler Master, are also reportedly on board for the same.

Razer plans to release the Tomahawk to the public in June this year without any information on the desktop price, and reports suggest it's going to be around USD2000.
