During Computex 2013, Antec announced a new series of PC enclosures, the P100, the Super Tower 1900, the ISK 600 and the NSK4100.
This year at Computex 2013, Antec revealed their new computer case for enthusiasts, the P100, latest member in the Performance Series. Gamers, on the other hand, got a glimpse of the Antec 1900, a massive, yet simplistic gaming case. Finally, there was the ISK 600 a tiny, mini-ITX case.
This computer case is a monster to behold. With 9 expansion slots, enough space to put a few 330mm graphic cards, 17 drive-bays and TWO PSU bays, this case is the basic definition of "massive". Though we have no clear definition of how big it actually is, I think it's safe to say it won't fit under most traditional desks. Funnily enough, it seems like the Nineteen Hundred isn't all that light either, sporting a 0.8mm thickness steel build. Below you can find the currently known specs:

The nineteen hundred
The second enclosure showcased at Computex 2013 was the P100, an ATX case with more of a sleek and subtle design. This one is more of an entry-level model in the Performance Series. It most certainly doesn't compare with the Nineteen Hundred, sporting a minimalist appearance and a sound-isolating design. It's pretty much P182's little sister.
According to the Antec press release the new "P100 is an ATX case that epitomizes cool, quiet, and sophistication."
However, style doesn't matter all that much if the specs aren't up to par. Well, thankfully, they kinda are, at least for an entry level enclosure. It sports 7 expansion slots, 3 tool-less 5.25" drives and 4 tool-less 3.5"/2.5" drives. It can't compare with some of the bigger monsters out there, but it is a budget option and a fine good one at that.
A few mini-ITS cases were also on display, including the ISK600, a tiny, 260mm width and 332mm length, enclosure. The case is also built using 0.8mm SECC steel, and a brushed aluminium finish for the top and side-panels.
Though tiny, the form-factor case allows for quite extensive builds, sporting enough space to hold 11" (270mm) graphic cards, 2 expansion slots and three drive bays.
Lastly, we had the NSK4100, a case designed for people that are just looking for a full-featured case with a solid build. Looking at the case, the first thing noticed is the black-matte finish, and the front bezel with its indirect intake vents. Though it supports, ATX, micro-ATX and mini-ITX motherboards, and enough space to allow 11" (270mm) graphic cards, the case is not all that massive. Unlike the ISK600 or the Nineteen Hundred, NSK is built using thinner SECC steel, only 0.6mm.
The enclosure also supports liquid cooling, three 5.25" drives, six 3.5" HDDs, and one 2.5" SSD. It also contains two fan mounts and enough space for seven expansion slots. Lastly, we have the front with 2 USB 3.0 and audio ports.
All products will be available in Q4 2013.
