MSI Shows Off Stylish All-in-One and Desktop Gaming PCs

by MAC     |     January 7, 2016


MSI have announced a handful of new gaming desktop PC's that look like everything but your regular boring boxy systems.


MSI have really jumped onto the gaming bandwagon big time at this year's CES event, and no where is it as clear as their new lineup of gaming-oriented All-in-One (AIO) and desktop computers. Since we really don't know much about their internal specifications, and much of what makes these new systems unique is their appearance, we are going to let the pictures and MSI's own words do the talking.

However, before that, we do have to highlight the Cubi 2 Plus, which certainly doesn't fall into the gaming PC realm. It is a tiny small form factor PC that is basically a direct competitor to Intel's popular NUC line. This new model has been outfitted with an Intel Skylake-based processor, has enough internal room to handle both an M.2 SSD and 2.5" SSD/HDD, and features a wide array of ports. Like it's competitors, it appears to be perfect for a casual home/office computer or HTPC.

Now onto the press release:


Vortex Gaming Tower – MSI’s Vortex is a powerful compact gaming PC designed to fit anywhere. Potent yet small, the Vortex is only about 6.5L and 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. The Vortex will be available in 2016.




Gaming 27XT – MSI’s Gaming 27XT is the world’s first All-in-One PC to support an external desktop graphics card. Armed with a variety of high-tech components and technologies, including Nahimic Audio Enhancer, Killer Lan networking, and a stunning 144 Hz Full HD display, the Gaming 27XT delivers the best out of box gameplay experience for gaming enthusiasts.




Nightblade X2 – MSI’s Nightblade Gaming PC’s are made specifically with the enthusiast in mind. The Nightblade X2 and MI2 platform comes equipped with Military Class 4 components allowing gamers to build out a high-performance gaming pc without sacrificing precious space in the battlestation. Equipped with an Intel Skylake chipset motherboard and support of up to Nvidia GeForce GTX 980ti/970 graphics card respectively, the MSI Nightblade Series carries the horsepower gamers need without the size or weight to hold them back.
