The graphics sector is entrusted to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, while a cooling system supplied by Cooler Master intervenes to keep the temperature at bay. Everything is enclosed in a tower case whose dimensions have been further reduced compared to the previous model: the internal volume is only 30 liters – air intake and explosion grilles, however, contribute to keeping temperatures low.
