Zotac is bringing it's entire Mek gaming lineup to Intel's 9th Gen Core processors and Nvidia's RTX graphics, the company revealed here at Computex.

The flagship Mek Ultra will be refreshed at the end of June, while the adorable Mek Mini and super-thin Mek1 will follow in July. No prices were announced.

The Mek Ultra is keeping the RGB RAM we saw it get at CES and jumping to an Intel Core i9-9900K CPU paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card.

While the Mek1 is maintaining the same design, the Mek Mini is getting a new color: rose taffy. It's a nice bubble gum shade of pink, though Zotac suggested that the hue may only be available in Asia, with more traditional black desktops going to the U.S.
