CORSAIR offers first look at upcoming products at Computex 2016
CORSAIR kicked off this year’s Computex by offering press and industry partners an exclusive tour of its “Build it Better” showcase at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Taipei. They will show off a host of new technologies and soon-to-be-released products, as well as some amazing custom modded PCs. “Whether Enthusiasts want to build their system faster, quieter or brighter, with CORSAIR they can always Build It Better,” they stated.
Build it Brighter – Faster, Brighter, Better DRAM
Up first was their “Build it Brighter” portion of the campaign, as they show off two new ranges of high-performance DDR4 memory in the form of the CORSAIR Vengeance LED and CORSAIR Dominator Platinum Special Edition.
The Vengeance LED features integrated lighting as well as an aggressively styled new heat-spreader design to the already award-winning CORSAIR Vengeance range of XMP 2.0 certified DDR4. This allows enthusiasts to light up their system with vibrant red or white LED lighting, and the Vengeance LED will also be the fastest CORSAIR DDR4 memory kit thus far, thanks to specially selected Samsung ICs driving kits to 4.333MHz and beyond.
Next up is the Dominator Platinum Special Edition, which brings premium DDR4 to the next level by adding two unique finishes to the CORSAIR Dominator Platinum’s unmistakable industrial design and aluminum finish.The Dominator Platinum Special Edition has been shown in Blackout brushed aluminum and Chrome finishes, and is built utilizing top bin Samsung ICs. It has been tested rigorously to ensure ample overclocking headroom on both X99 and 100 series platforms.
Both versions of the DRAM will launch in Q3, 2016.
Build it Cooler – A Revolutionary New Range of Magnetic Levitation Technology Fans
The second part of their campaign was “Build it Cooler”, in which they show off a new range of cooling fans. The new fans shown off, the CORSAIR ML PRO and ML PRO LED, include a different kind of bearing that they state will change what enthusiasts expect from high-performance cooling fans.
The CORSAIR ML PRO fans harness patented Magnetic Levitation bearing technology and custom rotor designs, offering high static pressure and air flow along with an ultra-low friction magnetic bearing that manages to simultaneously generate lower noise and provide higher performance. The fans are offered with a PWM speed control over 2,000 RPM range.
Those seeking lighting from the fans as well can pick up the ML PRO LED versions, which radiate light out through the frosted translucent blades.
Both ranges of fans are currently set to launch in Q3, 2016.
Build it Faster – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 comes to CORSAIR with MSI
Up next was the “Build it Faster” portion of their campaign, in which they revealed that they have once again partnered with MSI to develop its Hydro GFX GeForce GTX 1080. This graphics card features an integrated closed-loop CORSAIR liquid cooler, as well as PCB design by MSI, allowing it to push the GTX 1080 even farther thanks to the greatly increased GPU core cooling capacity, which allows the GPU to reach higher boost clock frequencies for longer. This all results in a quieter, cooler, and faster GeForce GTX 1080 right out of the box.
The Hydro GFX GeForce GTX 1080 is set to launch in Q3, 2016.
Build it Your Way – 400C Gets a Clean New Look
The fourth portion of the campaign is the “Build it Your Way” portion, in which they reveal that they will be bringing a new look to their multi-award winning Carbide 400C Case. This new look is the Carbide 400C White, which retains everything that made the 400C a huge hit.
This new case is scheduled to launch in June, 2016.
Build it in the Living Room – BULLDOG and LAPDOG go VR
The final part of their campaign is simply “Build it in the Living Room,” in which they will be showing off Virtual Reality for their living room gaming system and control center. “By combining the performance of the liquid-cooled, living room friendly BULLDOG system,” they stated, “couch-comfortable LAPDOG and the latest in VR technology from Oculus and HTC, Gamers can experience all that VR has to offer, right from the comfort of their chair.”
