In fact, Corsair’s commands a leading market share and is rumored to make for almost half of annual revenue for their now former OEM supplier, Danish-American Asetek. Yet during this year’s Computex Taipei, Corsair had a surprise for all of us expecting the usual redesign of their well-known AIO cooler. This time

As promised, custom boards were to follow over the “next couple of weeks”. MSI, known Taiwanese vendor of graphics cards unveiled custom versions of the 1080 Ti, featuring not just a custom heatsink option, but a custom PCB as such.

The MSI 1080 Ti Aero card comes with a blower-style cooler to bring its price as close to MSRP as possible. Second one is
In 2016, we saw the departure of a seasoned executive from GigaByte to Corsair. That transfer would not be odd if it was not for that person being the spiritual leader behind the BRIX line of mini-PC’s. Having Colin join Corsair, we believed that the time for an ultimate compact gaming PC would not be too far away, and the result is now public. Known as the Corsair One, this is the first complete computer system from a popular peripheral manufacturer.

Recently, Corsair Memory launched its first Solid State Disk, with 128GB capacity. Since the performance wasn’t earth shattering (as opposed to already-established memory, power supplies and memory sticks), I expected that this first product was nothing else but tapping into the highly lucrative market. However, after reading the press release, a statement from John Carlton, Corsair’s VP of Marketing stood out like supernova in otherwise dark universe: “Our engineering team is currently hard at work on even higher performance and higher-capacity drives with read and write-speeds expected to be in in excess of 200MB/s.
