Corsair has introduced its first line of AMD-based gaming PCs, the Vengeance 6100-series. The systems are powered by AMD’s eight-core Ryzen 7 3700X processor as well as AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card and priced starting at $1,999. They are positioned slightly below Corsair’s (Intel-based) Vengeance 5100-series PCs launched last year.

The Corsair Vengeance 6180 and Vengeance 6182 systems come in the familiar Micro-ATX version the company’s Crystal Series 280X RGB case that is exclusively used for this lineup and is not available in retail. The chassis has two chambers for efficient cooling and compact size, three tempered glass windows, and loads of individually addressable RGB LEDs. In fact, the large number of RGB LEDs are a defining feature of this product family as they enable owners of the systems to define the look of their build themselves and without any additional investments.

Both Vengeance 6180 and Vengeance 6182 are based on AMD’s eight-core Ryzen 7 3700X processor accompanied by 16 GB of DDR4 memory, as well as AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card. The 6180 uses a motherboard based on AMD’s B450 chipset and comes with Corsair’s Force MP510 480 GB SSD. Meanwhile the 6182 uses X570-based motherboard and is equipped with Corsair’s Force MP600 1 TB SSD, a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD that offers leading-edge performance. As a result of the motherboard differences, the systems offer slightly different I/O features, though both support Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A and Type-C connectors.

One interesting thing about Corsair’s Vengeance 6100-series is that the company for some reason decided not to use components from MSI, but use ASRock’s X570 Pro4 motherboard as well as XFX's Radeon RX 5700 XT RAW II Ultra graphics card.

Corsair’s Vengeance 6180 and Vengeance 6182 systems are immediately available from Corsair in the USA starting at $1999. Both machines are covered with a two-year warranty.

    Can someone say how much would a system assembled manually with the same components cost ? Reply
  • PeachNCream - Friday, January 24, 2020 - link

    You can check a site called pcpartpicker.com to go through the hardware and get a pretty fair idea of what a DIY project with similar components would cost. Reply

    Or build it yourself for like $999? Half the price... Reply

    3700X $324
    RT 5700XT $400
    280X RGB Case $170
    Vengeance LPX 16GB 3200 DDR4 $72
    MP510 480GB SSD $100
    RM650 PS $110
    2TB SATA $50
    B540 Micro ATX Mobo $80
    Corsair Liquid AIO $130
    Win 10 Home $110

    Total $1546

    $1999 - $1546 = $454 markup minimum (+29%).

    Too steep Corsair. Most people are going to buy the parts and put the system together themselves. For $454+ one can use the money to get a gaming monitor, mouse, and keyboard. They'd have to fork up another $400+ for a decent GPU as well.

    Assembled and tested by Corsair. That's a reasonable price. Reply

    Total $1546, I think Corsair pays far less then the price's you have listed. Reply

    They buy in bulk, assemble in china and then sell it here with minimal support. Reply

    Really glad to see some Micro-ATX love. It needs to be the mainstream standard, not ATX. Who needs so many expansion slots these days Reply
