COMPUTEX: MSI Debuts New Devices For Gamers & Creators
Taiwanese manufacturer MSI is showing off a suite of new computers and accessories geared towards gamers and content creators at this year’s COMPUTEX.
Among MSI’s showcase is its new flagship GT76 Titan gaming laptop, an Intel i9-powered “creator” laptop, and an all-in-one PC.
The GT76 Titan has already won the COMPUTEX Best Choice Golden Award for gaming and entertainment for its advanced cooling system featuring 4 fans and 11 heat pipes to help keep temperatures down after overclocking its i9 processor to 5GHz.
The Titan comes in a car-inspired aluminium chassis, with carbon fiber themed vents.
The Titan will be shown alongside the compact GE65 Raider laptop, which features a 240Hz thin-bezel display that brings ultra smooth gaming right to the edge of the screen.
The Raider also sports next generation Wi-Fi 6 on-board for extra fast online gaming.
The small form-factor Trident X Plus desktop is another of MSI’s designs to pick up a Best Choice Award.
The CPU, graphics card and power supply are compartmentalised in separate chambers to help maximise airflow in the 10-litre case.
The Trident and the Raider both feature 9th-gen i9 processors and Nvidia RTX graphics.
After gaining a strong foothold with gamers, MSI is also looking to capture the content-creator market, with a laptop, desktop and all-in-one that ditch the aggressive gaming designs for sleeker aesthetics without compromising on power.
The P65 Creator laptop, P100 desktop and PRO 22X all-in-one will be on display.
The P65 is available with a 4K screen and is targeted at video editors, animators, and graphic designers looking for a portable device with plenty of power.
The P65 features similar i9 processors and Nvidia RTX graphics like the gaming laptops house within a sleek silver chassis.
The P100 desktop is another COMPUTEX award winner in the MSI line-up.
A high-powered workhorse designed to handle advanced rendering tasks and support for 8K resolutions, the P100 uses the same cooling technique as the Trident by separating heat-producing devices to increase airflow.
MSI will also be displaying the all-in-one PRO22X, featuring a 21.5-inch screen.
Unlike the majority of all-in-ones, the PRO22X has what MSI calls a Rapid Upgrade Design to allow easy access and upgrade to the storage.
MSI will also be displaying three monitors and a number of mice, keyboards, headsets and cases.
The 24.5-inch Oculux monitor is a full-HD monitor with a 0.5ms response time for smooth gameplay, with Nvidia G-Sync technology on-board to prevent screen tearing.
Those looking for higher resolution can step up to the 31.5-inch 4K Optix monitor.
Geared towards console gamers as a TV replacement, the Optix features a 10ms response time and AMD FreeSync support.
Creative types can increase their high-resolution workspace with the 34-inch, 5120 x 2160 ultra-wide Prestige PS341WU monitor, with an emphasis on precise colours and fine detail.
The monitor also syncs with the Prestige series desktops and laptops through the include Creator software to optimise settings for the chosen application.
MSI will also be showing off two aluminium frame gaming keyboards with customisable lighting effects, two headsets, two gaming mice, and two chassis.
COMPUTEX starts in Taipei on Tuesday May 28.
