Corsair Goes AMD: Vengeance Prebuilt PC With Ryzen 3000 & A PCIe 4.0 SSD Inside


RSS feed bot

At AMD’s Computex press conference yesterday, Corsair demonstrated its first AMD-based prebuilt PC. Set to be available later this year, Corsair’s miniature Vengeance system will pack AMD’s Ryzen 3000-series processor, a Radeon graphics card, as well as Corsair’s upcoming SSD based on the Phison PS5016-E16 controller featuring a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface.

Corsair’s AMD-based PC that the company demonstrated at AMD’s press conference came in a white Micro-ATX chassis that is very similar to the one used for the recently announced Intel and NVIDIA-powered Vengeance 5180-series. The case has tempered glass windows and naturally supports multiple RGB LEDs that can be controlled using the company’s iCUE software.

Internally, the PC is based on AMD's brand-new Ryzen 3000 series CPUs and the associated X570 chipset. One of the main selling points of the system — besides, of course, AMD’s latest platform — will be Corsair’s next-generation MP600 PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD based on Phison’s PS5016 controller (which promises up to 5 GB/s sequential read/write speeds). The drive is outfitted with a massive heatsink to ensure its consistent performance even under high loads.

As an early preview machine, Corsair has not finalized their specifications for the PC, so we can only speculate whether or not it will also use AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 5700-series graphics card, but since everything else inside of it was related to AMD's latest-generation technology, this seems incredibly likely.

The company does not have a firm launch date for its AMD-based Vengeance PC, but since AMD will be launching its Ryzen 3000-series processors on the 7th of July, hopefully Corsair's system won't be too far behind.
