Corsair has finally navigated into AMD waters again. Today, the company listed the Corsair One a100, its first AMD Ryzen-powered gaming PC (opens in new tab) that hails from the One series.
The new desktop leverages the core-heavy AMD Ryzen 3000-series (opens in new tab) (Matisse) desktop CPUs (opens in new tab). While the Matisse family has many Zen 2 members, Corsair only taps the two fastest models, the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X (opens in new tab) and Ryzen 9 3950X (opens in new tab).
The Ryzen 9 3900X has 12 CPU cores (opens in new tab) and 24 threads (opens in new tab) and ticks with a 3.8 GHz base clock (opens in new tab) and 4.6 GHz boost clock. The Ryzen 9 3950X is the flagship 16-core, 32-thread part and checks in with a 3.5 GHz base clock and 4.7 GHz boost clock. The two 7nm processors boast native support for the PCIe (opens in new tab) 4.0 interface and DDR4-3200 RAM (opens in new tab) modules.

An unidentified Mini-ITX X570 motherboard (opens in new tab) lives inside the Corsair One a100's compact PC case (opens in new tab), which measures 7.9 x 6.8 x 15 inches (200 x 172.5 x 380mm). Being a Corsair-branded product, the gaming PC utilizes the company's own products wherever possible.
The Ryzen 9 3950X model lands with a Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (opens in new tab) graphics card (opens in new tab), a Corsair Force MP600 (opens in new tab) 1TB SSD (opens in new tab) and a 2.5-inch 5,400 RPM hard drive that's 1TB in size.
On the contrary, the Ryzen 9 3900X model has the option to feature an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super (opens in new tab) or GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with either a Corsair Force MP600 500GB or 1TB SSD, complemented with the same 1TB 2.5-inch hard drive.
Regardless of the configuration, the desktop uses liquid cooling to keep the Ryzen processor and Nvidia graphics card at bay. All configurations also come with 32GB (2x 16GB) of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 (opens in new tab) memory.
The gaming PC's other specifications include a Corsair SF600 80 Plus Gold certified power supply (opens in new tab) Gigabit Ethernet networking, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
The case's front panel supplies two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, a 3.5mm combo jack for headphones and microphones and a HDMI 2.0a port. The backside of the case houses three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, three 3.5mm audio jacks and three DisplayPort outputs.
The Ryzen 9 3950X model of the Corsair One a100 retails for $4,000 (opens in new tab). The Ryzen 9 3900X configuration with the GeForce RTX 2080 Super and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti costs $3,000 (opens in new tab) and $3,600 (opens in new tab) respectively.
