So far as we are able to inform, no product referred to as the “Razer Tomahawk” has really ever shipped. However that isn’t retaining Razer from making an attempt once more in the present day with a pair of practical-looking PC circumstances for rolling your personal system.
The brand new $199 Razer Tomahawk A1 (ATX) and $179 Tomahawk M1 (Mini-ITX) are pretty commonplace if fairly versatile circumstances with a couple of options that set them aside — primarily, a pair of tempered glass panels with rear hinges to allow them to swivel backwards like suicide doorways, and may also be lifted proper off.

Razer says it is also working with motherboard producers to combine Chroma RGB lighting, with the primary AMD boards from ASRock coming in This autumn.
