With their ONE series Corsair has a new range of small form factor gaming systems in it's portfolio. Today we're going to have a look at the ONE PRO, that packs well-performing components under the hood. This model is equipped with an Intel Core i7-7700K processor and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 pixel accelerator. We're going to put this PC up against our ocaholic reference test system for PC reviews and apart from that we're also going to look at all the other details such as design and build quality.
The ONE is Corsair’s first take on a fully integrated and globally available gaming system. The ONE PRO we’re going to have a look at today is a capable little gaming PC that looks nice enough to even put it up in your living room. It’s based on a mini-ITX motherboard and a well-thought cooling concept thus it’s reasonably small yet very silent.
A quick look at the specs reveals that Corsair packs well-performing components under the hood, like for instance NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070, GTX 1080 and soon even GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards. Apart from that they’re using Intel’s Core i7-7700 or Core i7-7700K CPUs in combination with 16 Gigabyte of RAM, which is definitely enough for gaming these days. The motherboard features a M.2 slot but unfortunately there is no version of the Corsair ONE available that comes such a drive. Despite not being a cheap system there are only variants of the Corsair ONE, featuring SATA drives. When it comes to the size of the SSDs there are either 240GB, 480GB or 960GB Corsair Force LE models in the different versions of the Corsair ONE systems. What all versions have in common is the 400W Corsair SF400 SFX power supply.
At a first glance it looks like the Corsair ONE could be capable of convincing due to very low noise levels. Apart from that it packs quite a punch in the graphics department and so far it looks like the only compromise is the SATA SSD, which in the end helps keeping the price on a more competitive level.
