If you’re hip to pre-built, small-form factor gaming systems, MSI is now shipping quite a whopper of a PC which it claims is the world’s smallest gaming tower. The Vortex measures just 10.5 inches tall and aims straight for the jugular with an unlocked Intel Core i7 6700K processor paired with either 16GB (2x8GB) or 32GB (4x8GB) of DDR4 2133MHz memory. On the graphics front, you have two choices: you can go with either a dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 GPUs (6GB) or dual GeForce GTX 980 (16GB). The graphics subsystem is 4K-ready and capable of simultaneously outputting to up to six displays. Storage... Read more...
It wasn't long ago when using "gaming" and "all-in-one" in the same sentence would elicit funny or otherwise puzzled stares. And now? While not ubiquitous, AIO systems with gaming chops are much more common and quickly growing in number. You can add to their ranks MSI's upgraded Gaming 24, a Skylake-H powered AIO with discrete graphics.Customers can choose between an Intel Core i5-6300HQ or Core i7-6700HQ. The former is a quad-core chip clocked at 2.3GHz to 3.2GHz with 6MB of cache, while the latter ups the ante with slightly faster clockspeeds (2.6GHz to 3.5GHz) and Hyper Threading support. It...

MSI claims that it is now shipping the “World’s Most Powerful Gaming All-In-One PC” and we must admit, it does pack quite a punch. MSI’s Gaming 27T, as it names implies, features a 27-inch display. But unlike some all-in-ones released in the past few months, the 27T doesn’t feature a 4K display. Instead, the all-in-one ships with a Full HD (1920x1080) resolution anti-glare display. Powering the machine is a Skylake-based Intel Core i7-6700 processor which has a base clock of 3.4GHz and Turbo Boosts up to 4GHz. You’ll find a healthy 16GB of RAM standard along with an incredibly potent NVIDIA GeForce... Read more...
Shh, do you hear that? Neither do we, nor are we supposed to. In case you're wondering, we're listening for MSI's Cubi N mini PC, only we can listen until the cows come home and never hear a peep from the tiny box. That's because it's a fanless system designed to deliver "ultra-silent" (not just silent!) operation.In case you haven't been paying attention to the NUCs and Zboxes and every other pint sized PC of late, these mini systems are growing in popularity. You can thank advances in processor technology for that, and in this case, give a salute to Intel and its Braswell architecture. The Cubi... Read more...
Although the $999 GeForce GTX Titan X is currently the King of the single-GPU hill, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti is the far more palatable option for most hardcore enthusiasts, due to its lower $649 starting price point. As we showed you in our initial coverage of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, however, the card is still a monster in terms of performance. It typically outpaces AMD’s flagship Radeon R9 Fury X (at least with DX11 titles) and it finishes only a few percentage points behind the much pricier Titan X.NVIDIA’s partners have also taken the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and morphed it into something even...

Mobile gaming GPUs have never been on par with their latest desktop brethren, though that's about to change with the introduction of a GeForce GTX 980 built for laptops. NVIDIA answered the call for true desktop class graphics in a laptop form factor, and MSI will be the first to market with a gaming notebook built around the high end GPU.That system is the GT72 Dominator Pro G, a limited edition laptop in celebration of MSI's 29th anniversary. What makes it so special is the combination of a true GeForce GTX 980 GPU (with 8GB of GDDR5 memory) paired up with an Intel Core i7-6820HK processor based... Read more...
It won't be long (hopefully) before Intel's newly launched Skylake processors for the desktop will find their way onto retail shelves (they're already available through system builders). If you've been waiting for Skylake, you'll soon be able to proceed with your new build. In the meantime, you can get started with other parts, including the motherboard, some of which sport Rivet Network's all-new Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet Controller. Rivet's new flagship controller introduces something called "Advanced Stream Detect 2.0," which is a collection of technologies and algorithms designed for superior... Read more...
At this point, if you’re an avid follower of PC and gaming tech, we’ll assume that you’ve heard about NVIDIA’s Maxwell GPU architecture and the full line-up of graphics cards it powers. We most recently took a look at the mainstream GeForce GTX 960, but Maxwell is at the heart of the entry-level GeForce GTX 750 / 750 Ti and the flagship GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980 as well.In all of its iterations, Maxwell has proven to be a good performing, power-efficient architecture. But it’s at the high-end of the market where some of the most exciting products reside. Typically, when NVIDIA launches a new... Read more...
Have you ever thought to yourself, "I wish my laptop had a mechanical keyboard!", but have been left depressed with the dearth of options? If so, MSI's latest gaming laptop is worthy of your consideration. Called the GT80 Titan, MSI has impressively embedded an entire mechanical keyboard in its base, complete with CHERRY MX brown switches (light bump, non-clicky). Behold, what I feel to be one of the most interesting laptops ever: I admit that I've joked with myself (because I'm a little odd like that) about having a notebook with a mechanical keyboard, but I never actually thought it was something...

Intel Unveils Haswell-E 8-Core Beast Of A Desktop CPU Intel has officially launched their Core i7-5960X high-end, Haswell-E desktop processor today. Unlike Ivy Bridge-E, which maxed out at 6 cores (12 threads), Haswell-E is an 8-core beast of a machine (16 threads), featuring execution units based on Intel’s latest desktop microarchitecture. The Core i7-5960X has a base clock of 3GHz with Turbo Boost speed to 3.5GHz and will have up to 20MB of shared L3 cache. It also features an integrated quad-channel memory controller with official support for DDR4 memory at speeds up to 2133MHz, although... Read more...
We have been eagerly anticipating the release of processors based on Intel’s Haswell-E microarchitecture for quite some time. After about three years of incremental performance improvements at the ultra-high end, as Sandy Bridge-E was eventually replaced by similarly clocked Ivy Bridge-E based processors, the rumored specs of Haswell-E were enticing. Unlike Sandy Bridge-E and Ivy Bridge-E, which maxed out at 6 cores (12 threads) with desktops variants, Haswell-E would be an 8-core machine (16 threads), featuring execution units based on Intel’s latest microarchitecture. Assuming similar... Read more...
You've surely heard of 2-in-1 tablets/netvertibles before, but what about a 3-in-1? That's the nomenclature used by MSI to describe its latest contraption, the S100. It's a Windows 8.1-based tablet that ships with a keyboard and protective cover. Underneath the hood, there's an Intel Bay Trail quad-core processor, a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display, and a dual 2-megapixel camera system. You'll also find 2GB of memory, 64GB of storage, a microSD slot, and of course, a touch-friendly panel. Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 3.5mm headphone jack, HDMI 1.4a and a built-in 1-watt speaker are also... Read more...
