Back in March, MSI launched the Trident 3 compact gaming PC complete with a Kaby Lake-based Intel Core i7-7700 processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 GPU. MSI has taken the opportunity to make a serious upgrade to its compact gaming PC with the help of new hardware that has launched over the past few weeks, and has crowned it the Trident X. The Trident X is available with Intel's new 9th generation Core processors that were announced yesterday. In this case, customers can choose from the 8-core/8-thread Core i7-9700K or the 8-core/16-thread Core i9-9900K. When it comes to graphics... Read more...
If the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti are too rich for your blood, the company's "entry-level" GeForce RTX 2070 will launch later this month. Priced from $499 for third-party cards, the GeForce RTX 2070 could find a home in many gaming rigs. Enter the MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming X, which has a dual fan cooling solution, rather than the triple fan cooling solution some RTX 2070 cards utilize (a la the ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2070). The MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming X is a dual-slot video card, which might make this appealing to gamers who need a decent video card that can fit into a... Read more...
We are getting oh-so-close to the launch of Intel's 9th generation Core processors, and as that date approaches, motherboard makers appear to be bursting at the seams with excitement. ASRock has come out and formally introduced its Z390 lineup, while ASUS, EVGA, and MSI have all taken to social media to tease their upcoming motherboards. "The leading global motherboard manufacturer, ASRock, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Intel Z390 motherboard series, and also the Phantom Gaming Motherboards, the latest addition to the company's popular Phantom Gaming line up. These versatile new... Read more...
We already knew that MSI was planning on launching more than half a dozen motherboards based on Intel's upcoming Z390 chipset, but we have not seen the full lineup, apparently. Yet another Z390 motherboard has leaked to the web, this latest one being MSI's MEG Z390 ACE, which will sit alongside the company's MEG Z390 Godlike on top of the product stack. MSI is taking aim at enthusiasts and overclockers with its MEG boards. For those who do not want to go all out on the MEG Z390 Godlike for whatever the asking price ends up being, the MEG Z390 ACE will offer similar features but at a presumably... Read more...
Strap on your life preservers, folks, here comes the wet and wild liquid cooled variants of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards. MSI has taken the plunge with four new models, two of which are designed for straight liquid cooling setups, and two others that are hybrid all-in-one solutions. Starting with the latter, MSI's new Sea Hawk X models combine a traditional blower-style air cooler with an AIO liquid cooler that is already attached to the graphics card. All users have to do is install the card as they normally would, and mount then mount the 120mm radiator with... Read more...
Intel might as well go ahead and release its 9th generation Core processor lineup right now, because unless it has something up its sleeve that has not already been leaked, there will not be any surprises. This applies to the crop of Z390 motherboards waiting in the wings, too. In the latest batch of leaked images, we see more than half a dozen Z390 motherboard models from MSI, including its MEG Z390 Godlike board. There is no doubt that the Meg Z390 Godlike is a beastly motherboard. While we don't have detailed specs to share, we can see in the press render that it has four reinforced PCI Express...

To date, NVIDIA has disclosed a number of details regarding its GeForce RTX series graphics cards, based on the bleeding-edge Turing GPU architecture. We covered NVIDIA’s official announcements direct from Gamescom, where high-level features like Ray Tracing, DLSS, NVLink, and pricing were initially revealed and followed up with a nice, long podcast chat with NVIDIA’s own Tom Petersen, during which a handful of interesting tid-bits were divulged. We were able to dive into the Turing architecture last week, where we detailed and explained what makes Turing tick in all of its brain-melting... Read more...
If the rumors and leaks have been accurate, then we're now just weeks away from Intel rolling out its 9th generation Core processor family, otherwise known as Coffee Lake Refresh. The new round of processors is expected to debut in October. There will be new Z390-chipset motherboards as well, several of which have leaked to the web already. Here's a look at yet another one. This time around, it's two of MSI's upcoming MAG and MPG models (one each). Like Gigabyte recently did, MSI is using the Z390 launch as an opportunity to introduce a new naming scheme. At the top of the stack, MSI's MEG models... Read more...
MSI is going after content creators and business professionals with the new P65 Creator notebook. While MSI is a name synonymous with PC gaming hardware, that doesn’t mean that the company can’t walk and chew gum at the same time. At its heart is an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor (Coffee Lake-H) that supports up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 memory (via two slots). The notebook features a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display with thin bezels, "near" 100% sRGB and 72% NTSC coverage. That display is backed up by one of three GPU options. The White Limited Edition comes with an NVIDIA GeForce... Read more...
NVIDIA just dropped a massive bombshell on the gaming community with its GeForce RTX family of products, which include the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070. If you want to know more about the Turing architecture that underpins these cards and about their ray-tracing performance, we suggest you check out our two previous articles on the Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX announcements, but here's a quick refresher on what separates the three: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 4352 CUDA cores, 1545MHz boost clock, 11GB GDDR6 GeForce RTX 2080:     2944 CUDA cores, 1710MHz...

The Duke is back! No, we're not talking about screen legend John Wayne, but an upcoming line of GeForce graphics cards. Unfortunately for NVIDIA, MSI's penchant for leaking ahead of an official launch has struck again. This time, the company's GeForce RTX Duke series has landed in both RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti flavors. Like the MSI Gaming X Trio cards that leaked earlier this morning, the GeForce RTX 2080 Duke has 8GB of GDDR6 memory while the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Duke has 11GB of GDDR6 memory. As with the previous generation, the GeForce RTX Duke series employs a triple-fan... Read more...
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series of graphics cards isn't supposed to be officially unveiled until August 20th, but we're already getting our first look at retail cards that will be shipping soon. MSI tends to be a bit "leaky" when it comes to new product releases, and the GeForce RTX 2080 is no exception. An alleged box shot has leaked that shows the GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio, complete with a triple-fan cooling system. For those familiar with MSI's graphics offerings, this setup is very similar to the company's current-generation GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio cards. The box also confirms... Read more...
Top tier motherboard makers have started rolling out new products based on AMD's X399 chipset, presumably in anticipation for second-generation Ryzen Threadripper chips that are right around the corner. That includes the beastly slice of silicon with 32 cores and 64 threads that AMD has been teasing since Computex. Starting with ASUS, the company did not announce any new motherboards, but did introduce a cooling kit for its existing ROG Zenith Extreme. The cooling kit consist of a small fan, bracket, SOC heatsink, and set of screws. It is intended to keep vital parts of the motherboard from overheating... Read more...
Late last week, we came across an ASRock motherboard box shot that alleged Intel's H310 Express chipset will have support for upcoming 9th generation Core Coffee Lake Refresh processors. Today, MSI is providing evidence that the Intel Z370 chipset will also support the new CPUs. Confirmation of the support came courtesy of a news update posted to MSI's website that states, "MSI, the world leading gaming motherboard manufacturer, is pleased to announce new BIOS updates for MSI Z370 motherboards to support Intel 9000 processors. The new BIOS updates are all fully optimized... Read more...
