High-end Sound Technology
Support for High-Performance Intel Quad Core CPU

Internal ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 Graphics
The future is in multimedia so the AE2400 uses the high-performance and energy-saving ATI Mobility Radeon HD5730 discrete graphic card with 1GB GDDR3 memory. Based on the latest graphics structure, the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 supports Microsoft's new DirectX 11 standards and is fully compatible with Windows 7. The 2nd generation UVD video processing engine perfectly handles H.264, VC-1 and MPEG2 high-definition video formats for smoother and more vivid imagery.

Purebred Sound System
The AE2220 Hi-Fi is equipped with MSI' proprietary Premium Sound Technology. IN an industry first, high-end 5W stereo speakers are integrated into the All-in-One PC together with patented Noise-Cancelling technology to minimize noise during sound signal transmission. Metal diaphragms used on high-end sound systems are fitted to provide a professional-grade sound field. Even more thought went into the AE2400 by adding to the existing hi-fidelity 5W stereo speakers a 10W sub-woofer in an industry first. This delivers realistic 2.1 channel sound that allows for more a sophisticated sound field suitable for gaming, movies and music. With the AE2400, there is no need for external speakers so there is no need to sacrifice space of high-quality audio.
