Last week, Leo spent some time with MSI in Spain to get the low-down on the upcoming range of X570 motherboards and a few other interesting launches set for 2019. With MSI's stake in the gaming market continuing to grow, new displays and cases were another big focus.
Here are Leo's notes for this week's episode:
Event organised by CND (others sections are GNP Graphics and Peripherals and NB Notebooks). CND is All in One PCs, MiniPC, Gaming PCs and motherboards, monitors, chairs and cases.
No pre-sales for X570 motherboards but MSI showed their range of X570 motherboards.
Prestige series is aimed squarely at content creators. The Prestige P100 targets 3D work with ‘silent pro cooling'. The Prestige PS34WU is a 5K monitor with DisplayHDR 600. On the gaming monitor front, we have the Oculux range, which is G-Sync only and the Optix range, which supports FreeSync instead.
MSI is expanding its case selection. The MPG Gungnir is a full tower- the Gungnir 100 has RGB, the 100P does not and the 100D is named after the MSI dragon. The MPG Sekira series has two SKUs, the Sekira 500X comes with two glass doors, the 500G is gold.
The MPG Harpe 300X is a concept case using laminated glass. Finally, MSI is also releasing its own MAG CH110 gaming chair.
