The Consumer Electronics Show hasn’t officially started just yet, but that hasn’t prevented a number of companies from showing of their wares a bit early at venues other than the Las Vegas Convention Center. We’ve already had a number of private briefings that we’ll be able to talk about soon; in the meantime we’ve got some goodies from MSI’s suites at the MGM Grand Hotel to show you. MSI had a number of components on display in one suite and a host of notebooks, peripherals, mobile workstations, and All-In-One systems in another.   MSI Radeon R9 290X Lightning... Read more...
MSI is bringing a great big bag full of new products to CES this year, and the lineup includes new gaming notebooks including one with a 3K display, quadro workstations, motherboards, tablets, touchscreen notebooks, and an intriguing all-in-one gaming PC called the MSI AG2712A. We’ve actually heard about several of these products already, so hit up the following links for all of the juicy details. The MSI 3K GT60 gaming laptop offers an unbelievable screen res, and we’re deeply intrigued by what the AG2712A all-in-one gaming PC can (or can’t) do. It’s also impressive that... Read more...
If your discerning gamer eyeballs aren’t satisfied with current hi-res display options, MSI has a little something for you in the form of a 3K screen on its latest gaming notebook. The MSI GT60 2OD-261US boasts an anti-reflective 15.6-inch panel with a 2880x1620 resolution. The notebook also features an Intel Core i7-4700MQ (Haswell) chip, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M GPU, Killer DoubleShot wireless tech, and Dynaudio Premium speakers with a subwoofer. For storage, there’s a 128GB SSD paired with a 1TB HDD, and MSI dropped in 16GB of DDR3L-1600MHz memory, a Blu-ray reader, and a hearty stash... Read more...
We’ve already had a taste of what ASUS and Gigabyte have to offer in the way of Z87 motherboards, and now it’s time to give MSI’s lineup a spin. MSI’s offering of Z87 motherboards has essentially three tiers: the “POWER” series (which includes four XPOWER and MPOWER boards), a trio of gaming boards, and five mainstream boards. The company sent us a motherboard from each area to put through their paces. The Z87 chipset goes hand-in-hand with Intel’s 4th-generation Haswell processors, and we outfitted the three MSI boards--the tiny Z87I, the Z87-G45 Gamer,... Read more...

Compact motherboard, meet compact graphics card. MSI announced a sweet-looking mobo/GPU one-two punch that offers a mini-ITX motherboard and a commensurately-sized graphics card to better enable users to put together a compact yet powerful gaming system. The MSI Z87I Gaming AC supports Intel’s 4th-gen (Haswell) processors and features a Killer E2205 gigabit NIC that includes built-in 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and Intel WiDi.

It's a new era in computing, and we say that because few would have imagined a few years ago that there would be so many all-in-one (AIO) systems aimed at gamers. For one, the form factor was, for a long time, cost prohibitive, and secondly, it doesn't exactly lend itself to the advanced cooling needs of high-end systems or upgrade desires of gamers. Nevertheless, we're starting to see more and more AIOs aimed at gamers, including MSI's AG2712A. The AG2712A is a 27-inch AIO (1920x1080) with an Intel Core i7 3630QM quad-core processor and AMD Radeon HD 8970M discrete graphics card. It also features... Read more...
MSI is apparently on a mission to shatter stereotypes in the PC gaming world starting with the size and weight of its newest laptop. Announced today by MSI, the GS70 is supposedly the world's thinnest and lightest 17-inch portable gaming "powerhouse" designed to give gamers plenty of pixel pushing power without resorting a chunky desktop replacement-style chassis. The Ultrabook-like GS70 is a mere 0.85 inches at its thinnest point along with with 16.47 inches wide and 11.29 inches deep. It weighs 5.73 pounds, or about half that of a typical desktop replacement. It's not exactly featherweight, but... Read more...
Image popupMobile gaming has become a bit of a misnomer as of late. You either have to sacrifice performance and settle for mostly casual gaming (tablet PCs) or give up a bit of portability to accommodate high-end hardware (gaming laptops and desktop replacements). Looking to cut down on the amount of compromises a mobile gamer has to make, MSI today announced its new GE40, a gaming laptop that measures less than 1-inch thick and weighs just 4.4 pounds. That's not quite Ultrabook territory, but for a full fledged gaming laptop, 4.4 pounds is nothing to be ashamed of. What you get in return is a... Read more...
It was just last week that NVIDIA launched the excellent GeForce GTX 780, which is essentially a scaled-back GeForce GTX Titan, at much more palatable—but still relatively high—price. NVIDIA is not quite done making news, however. As is typically the case when NVIDIA launches a graphics card in a new product family, derivatives that continue to flesh out the product stack are soon to follow. First came the GeForce GTX 780 and today marks the arrival of its little brother, the GeForce GTX 770. The GeForce GTX 770 looks much like the GTX 780 and Titan, but underneath its cooler assembly...

MSI announced two new G-series gaming notebooks that it claims are the world’s first to run AMD’s A10 (Richland) chips--specifically the A10-5750M, with up to Radeon HD 8970M graphics. The company says that the GX70 and GX60 notebooks boast a 40% increase in visual performance over previous generations as well as a boost in battery life and CPU performance. Other features on board include AMD EyeFinity 3D for multiple displays, Killer E2200 Game Networking LAN, a backlit keyboard on the GX70, and THX speakers replete with a subwoofer. The notebooks also sport a 750GB (7200 RPM) hard... Read more...
Just before the mid-range AMD Radeon HD 7790 hit store shelves in early April, NVIDIA countered with the GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST. NVIDIA’s move also involved pricing changes that were good for mid-range card shoppers, but what matters most is that the card NVIDIA managed to launch coincident with the Radeon HD 7790’s launch, offers better performance in most of our benchmarks. With the dust settling, all that’s left now is for the factory-overclocked cards to battle it out. Asus and Sapphire have already taken a crack with their overclocked Radeon HD 7790s. Those cards definitely... Read more...
