Corsair today revealed two concept PC systems and a range of innovative new technologies, strongly indicating the direction that the next generation of CORSAIR products are going to take. They also unveiled the Concept Slate, Concept Curve and a host of new RGB lighting and liquid cooling demos at Computex 2017, being held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Taipei.
Concept Curve re-imagines the popular CORSAIR Graphite 780T in hand-finished carbon fibre and curved tempered glass, with orange trims and prototype RGB fans giving it a very dynamic, automotive look. The Concept Curve is encased in multiple pieces of curved tempered glass, providing an unblocked view of the liquid-cooled system within. The entire concept gives off the vibes of a supercar, which is definitely going to set it apart from its competition.
Concept Slate is a futuristic take on the super-tower PC, designed for maximum system support and with smoked tempered glass playing a major role in the design. Boasting of massive water-cooling and dual-system hardware support, Concept Slate's interior is targetted at building and showing off powerful PC builds. Along with that, other components like the fan and RGB lighting control built are built in. The monolithic design contains two fully water-cooled systems. This one's truly a first.
Alongside Concept Slate and Concept Curve, CORSAIR unveiled SYNC IT, a COMPUTEX exclusive demo unifying DIY, peripheral and motherboard RGB lighting for complete RGB synchronisation. Users can coordinate RGB lighting between CORSAIR RGB case fans, Hydro Series CPU coolers, light strips, keyboards, mice, mouse pads, headsets, and with the help and support of MSI, select motherboards as well. This level of synchronisation will provide for some very impressive RGB lighting on future builds.
New Liquid Cooling Options
CORSAIR has been greatly involved in enthusiast liquid cooling for years, and COMPUTEX 2017 saw them unveil two new advances. New prototype RGB Hydro Series liquid CPU coolers are focussed on style, performance and finish, combining a sandblasted aluminium pump head with 360° RGB lighting, magnetic levitation fans and a quieter, more efficient pump.
Additionally, for users who seek more from their cooling systems, CORSAIR also unveiled its new performance custom liquid cooling water blocks, fittings and radiators. Cooling the CPUs and graphics cards of both Concept Slate and Concept Curve at the demonstration, the nickel and copper water-cooling blocks, chromed fittings and efficient radiators are the first looks at CORSAIR's upcoming custom liquid cooling line-up.
