This year at COMPUTEX 2019, MSI had a lot more to offer than previous years with their new expansion businesses now going into full bloom. Their new monitor and case business have taken off and the Creator brand has seen success as an offshoot of MSI’s gaming line. With all of these brands and products on the showfloor, it was a really packed booth and many business people as well as media we’re clamoring to checkout the latest and greatest from MSI for the coming months.
AMD has just launched their 3rd-generation Ryzen processors and its launch beckons the release of a new chipset and motherboard design standard. The new X570 chipset is the accompanying chipset launching with the new Ryzen CPUs and much like its predecessor, it supports both 1st-gen and 2nd-gen Ryzen CPUs, The new motherboard standard also brings in PCIe Gen4 which offers double the bandwidth of Gen3.
The new flagship for the X570 family is the new MSI X570 GODLIKE and the MSI X570 MEG Creation. Both are tuned for different functionality but deliver the maximum that the X570 chipset can offer. Also on display are the X570 MEG Ace and the X570 Gaming Pro Carbon which will serve as MSI’s mainstream offering after their flagship, offering cutback features from the topend products.
The new X570 GODLIKE is also armed with new expansion cards including a 10G Super LAN card and a M.2 Xpander-Z Gen4 riser for M.2 cards supporting up to PCIe Gen-4 devices. Both come out of the box included with the MSI X570 GODLIKE.
No prices has been announced for the motherboards yet.
MSI also showcased their new RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z 10th Anniversary Edition graphics card. Contrary to the original release of the RTX 2080 Ti Lighting, the new 10th Anniversary edition features a new cooler featuring a rich OLED display. A gold and red version is showcased as well.
MSI’s new display business has been doing very well and have put the company on a lofty position to start being more creative with its products. Instead, it still focused on a similar formula to its existing one but have expanded the line to a new curved flagship.
The MSI Optix MPG341CQR is a 34″ 144hz 4K UWD (3440×144) monitor offering fast response times, great colors, HDR and large display real estate. The monitor will also include MSI’s Game Sense engine in partnership with SteelSeries. The monitor also has a detachable bungee and webcam clip.
No official pricing has been mentioned for the monitor.
Also on display is this monitor from a user from the US. A story went viral earlier in the year involving a student who reported his MSI monitor being shot. The .357 bullet did not penetrate the monitor and saved the young gamer’s life. The monitor is now in MSI’s possession and was seen on display in COMPUTEX complete with the bullet hole at the back. We really don’t know if this is tampering with evidence but MSI did inform us that the owner receive a significant upgrade from his previous screen with this exchange.
MSI is also set to release one of their most daring cases dubbed the world’s first curved gaming case. The new Alchemy 700X. The case features full frontal mount for all its components giving you a full view of what’s inside your rig. The curved case also includes a curved tempered glass panel for display purposes. The case has front panel ports on the front feet and will require a sizable area for placement. The mounting sides on both left and right have various holes for mounting purposes and will allow placement of devices like hard drives and SSDs as well as radiators.
MSI is set to release these new products in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more information.
