This week Corsair introduced two new versions of its small form-factor desktop, called the 'ONE'. The new versions upgrade the processor to the latest generation Intel six-core Coffee Lake processors. The end result is more performance, with a corresponding increase in price. The new versions, called the ONE Pro Plus and the ONE Elite, represent the best performance versions of the Corsair One, while the model at the bottom of the stack is discontinued.

Corsair’s new ONE Pro Plus and ONE Elite systems are based on Intel’s Core i7-8700K processor, and subsequently get an upgrade to a Z370 based motherboard. The new Corsair ONE PCs come in the familiar 12L aluminum chassis with a custom liquid cooling system, featuring dual liquid cooling loops that are used to cool down the CPU and the GPU separately. For the new units, the GPU is also upgraded, to NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. Despite packing rather significant compute horsepower then, the use of the liquid cooling loops allows Corsair to promote the ONE Pro Plus and ONE Elite as quiet.

As for other components, the new high-end Corsair ONE models are outfitted with 16 GB of Vengeance LPX DDR4-2400 (ONE Plus) or 32 GB of Vengeance LPX DDR4-2666 (Elite) memory, a 480 GB M.2 NVMe SSD, and a 2 TB 2.5” 5400-RPM HDD. Since the systems use industry-standard components, they are upgradeable. Technically the CPU and GPU can also be overclocked, as long as cooling performance and 500W PSU are sufficient.

The new ONE Pro Plus and ONE Elite gaming machines exist alongside Corsair’s existing ONE Pro systems, featuring Intel’s Core i7-7700K as well as NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080. At the same time, Corsair has EOLed its original ONE computer based on the Core i7-7700 and the GeForce GTX 1070. Corsair says that customer interest for the $1800 system was low, so it decided to discontinue the SKU. As a result, the range now starts at $2300, while the most expensive Corsair ONE Elite model retails for $3000.

The new Corsair ONE Pro Plus and Corsair ONE Elite will be available worldwide directly from Corsair as well as its resellers.

    $1700? Are you from early 2017? Reply

    So I clicked the source link to see how things might look on the inside. OMG does the website suck. What happened to a simple gallery with multiple photos of different angles? What is this scroll a little, have a billion modals and animations and still can't really see how things are placed??? SAD. Reply

    Oh wow, you're right about Corsair's website. It's a huge turn-off when it comes to finding useful information. The miles-of-scrolling layout, the lack of valuable information or useful photos, and the excessive animations all combine in a trifecta of jarringly discordant design. I hope they fix that someday.

    I hope they fix it TODAY. I will, however, settle for anytime before I would consider buying one of their products that I need any detailed information about. Reply

    I did a quick check on Pcpartpicker, I manually used the MSRP of the GPU, and I think the case itself is more than $100 though. The price came out to be about $2300 for the model that corsair sells for 2800. If you include the cost of labor and having a all-in-one warranty (let's say they combine into 150). Then Corsair is actually making about 15%, it's not that ridiculous. Below is the list

    As iter mentioned before; if you're going to include costs such as labour and warranty to reflect an accurate price assessment then you should not use MSRP; by definition these are suggested retail prices. Corsair will be making a killing with these, particularly as they buy in bulk (and most probably waaaay before the recent crypto currency price hike); I'd love to check the batch number for some of these 1080Tis and find out the manufacturing date. Looks like it's going to be a while before I need to upgrade my 295x2. Reply

    True, but there is no accurate number for those service, so I just included what I personally thought it would be reasonable for labor/warranty. For the bulk pricing part, that's true too. But keep in mind that we are comparing this prebuild with DIY at the end of the day. So the cost difference will be us buying parts ourselves vs buying a prebuild, there is no way that we can pay bulk pricing ourselves. So I think the difference between the current gpu pricing and MSRP alone already outweights the bulk pricing and inaccurancy on the labor part Reply
