MSI-towerWhen you’re ready to fire up the latest and greatest computer game, you need one thing: Speed! You don’t want to be dealing with laggy video and sputtering screens that ruin your game-play experience. Fortunately, computer manufacturer MSI is bringing the hardware that’ll make your computer dreams come true.

The company announced many new products during CES 2016. Two of those items should really appeal to gamers. The first is the Vortex Gaming Tower. It’s a powerful compact gaming PC designed to fit anywhere. Potent yet small, it comes packed with power utilizing a desktop Intel processor, dual NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 SLI graphics for blistering fast performance, and a 360° Silent Storm Cooling design for superior performance under the most intense gaming sessions. It will also support multiple 4K video outputs simultaneously for intense multi-tasking and allow for expandability with an easy-to-upgrade design for DIY users.

MSI shows off New Gaming Laptops at CES



MSI-laptopWhen it comes to computer gaming, the standard thinking is that you’ve got to have a massive, overpowered desktop system if you really want to be able to play. After all, modern games are chock full of high-resolution audio and graphics files that require a lot of horsepower in order to be properly rendered. And while most of the low-end laptops you’re likely to find at the local office supply store won’t really excel when it comes to gaming, companies like MSI are hard at work developing gaming systems that are as powerful as they are portable.

At CES 2016, MSI introduced its new GS72 Stealth Pro laptop, the successor to its popular GS70. Measuring in at 0.78” thin, the GS72 is MSI’s slimmest and lightest 17” gaming notebook and sports an ultra-high resolution 4K display  in a form factor chassis. There is also a non-4K GS72 Stealth option. Both versions of the computer are expected to be on the market in early 2016.

Some specs from one potential build of the Stealth GS72:

  • Windows 10 Home/Windows 10 Pro
  • Latest 6th Gen. Intel® Core™ i7 processor
  • NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 970M graphics with ultra performance
  • True Color Technology for increased color contrast and greater image detail
  • Exclusive ESS SABRE HiFi DAC for lossless, high-quality audio
  • Nahimic Sound Technology delivering 360⁰ immersive audio experience
  • Sound by Dynaudio system
  • NVMe M.2 SSD by PCIe Gen3 X4 up to 2200MB/s speed(Optional)
  • The latest USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ interface built in

MSI Bridges the Performance and Affordability Gap with New Gaming PC’s



MSI laptopIt’s the eternal struggle. You need a powerful PC to maximize your gaming experience. And while high-end systems bring premium features and performance, they often demand an equally premium price. PC manufacturer MSI Computer Corp is making the divide between pricing and performance ever smaller with its new line of laptops and all-in-ones.

One qualification for a high-performance system is a quality graphics processor. MSI delivers here as the company’s Gaming 24GE AIOs, GE60/GE70 Apache and GP60/GP70 Leopard series gaming laptops will be outfitted with NVIDIA’s GTX 960M, 950M and 940M GPU’s. Designed to bring desktop graphics to a laptop, NVIDIA’s latest GTX GPUs deliver impressive gameplay at 1080p resolutions, allowing gamers to experience even the smallest particles of digital dust. The new GTX 960M, 950M and 940M GPUs also decrease energy consumption when compared to previous models, enabling longer play time without having to find a wall outlet.

Of course, high-quality video is nothing without a matching level of audio. That’s why MSI’c systems supply 3-D sound by Nahimic, an audio performance technology that offers virtual 7.1 sound in immersive high definition. Designed to work with standard stereo equipment, Nahimic technology transports gamers into the action, allowing them to sense every footstep, hear each bullet whizzing past, and feel every explosion around them. Nahimic technology highlights even the smallest sounds, intensifies gameplay by boosting bass, and reducing noise for optimum in-game voice clarity and comprehension. It also features a high definition audio recorder to easily capture studio quality sound. This new technology currently is available for the GE60 / GE70 Apache gaming notebooks and the Gaming 24GE AIO.

MSI gaming computers land early CES 2014 award



msi

While many of us are gearing up for the holidays and the shopping season, which will likely include a fair amount of electronics, the tech industry is getting ready to unveil a slew of new devices — immediately following your purchases. The Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in early January, but awards are already being issued, including one snagged by MSI.

Today, the company announces “MSI Computer Corp, leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, received the prestigious distinction of International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its GS70 gaming laptop and “Flicker-Free” AG2712A AIO Gaming PC”.

The MSI computers are billed as “flicker-free”, with the all-in-one coming with a Core i7 processor, touchscreen and AMD Radeon graphics. The notebook, the GS70, is described as the world’s thinnest and lightest 17-inch portable gaming laptop, and also has a Core i7 chip inside.

“The GS70 and AG2712A represent the future of gaming units, blending traditional processing muscle with the style demanded by the modern audience”,  stated Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI Pan America Region.


MSI U270 And X370



MSI is showing off their new laptops today at CES.  The U270 and X370.  Boasting outstanding performance and comfortable-sized screens, these thin, slim, power-sipping laptops are the ideal choice for on-the-go individuals, because you can use them all day without worrying that they will run out of energy before you do.

Both the U270 and X370 pack an AMD landmark dual core E-350 processor which incorporates the AMD Radeon HD 6310 Discrete-Class Graphics chip which supports DirectX 11.

The Wind U270 comes with a 12-inch 16:9 ratio display and is less than 1 inch thick.  It comes with MSI’s own ECO power-saving design which allows the battery to last more than twice as long as those in conventional notebooks.

The X370 has similar stats, but despite having a larger screen, comes in at just slightly less in weight.

There are no specific stats available yet, such as processor, RAM, or hard drive size, and no pricing or dates either.  But MSI has become something of a cult favorite in the industry thanks to their solid netbooks.  So I expect these to be reasonably prices and good competitors in the industry.
