Corsair has officially teased its new One i500 compact gaming PC, which will be revealed on May 5 sporting "next-gen components". The official tease was posted on X by Corsair; check it out:

The company will be showing off a brand-new design with a tease of a sleeker chassis with beautiful LED lighting on the sides and bottom, but it's the next-gen component that I want to see. Hopefully we'll get some next-gen AMD Zen 5-based CPU goodness, alongside what I'm sure will be an interesting choice in GPU... Radeon, or GeForce?

We should see Corsair unveil its new One i500 compact gaming PC with Intel's new 14th Gen Core "Raptor Lake Refresh" CPUs, but the high-end Core i9 designs are very hot and very power-hungry, and they're not "next-gen". Alternatively, even AMD's current-gen Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series CPUs are wonderfully power efficient, while Zen 5 is a true "next-gen component" that AMD is teasing. Zen 5 inside of the Corsair One i500 gaming PC makes total sense.

Corsair explains on its website: "When we launched the first CORSAIR ONE, we set a new standard in the world of compact, performance PCs. Now, we're back with a brand-new build that's raising the bar. Meet the CORSAIR ONE i500 PC: a space-efficient powerhouse packed with next-gen components-so you can create, work, and game with no compromises".

The current-gen Corsair One i400 compact gaming PC features an Intel Core i7-13700KF processor, 32GB of DDR5-5600 memory, a 1TB M.2 SSD, and a liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. That's some old hardware when it comes to the GPU, with the RTX 4080 and even RTX 4080 SUPER now out on the market. I'm hoping we see Corsair switch over to the more power-efficient, and cooler-operating AMD Ryzen CPUs.

Liquid-cooled GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER would be nice to see inside of the Corsiar One i500 compact gaming PC, and with just a week to go until May 5, we're pumped to see what Corsair has to show both inside of the One i500 gaming PC, and on the outside.
