Reading an extensive, in-depth review of MSI's latest gaming bare bones rig, Nightblade, is a great way to familiarise yourself with the specification and performance characteristics. But if you really want to get a handle on whether this is the right rig for you, why not get MSI's tech guru, Joran Schoonderwoerd. KitGuru is careful to avoid mentioning ‘020'.
While every major case manufacturer is still churning out mega-chassis that can store more drives than a weekend at the racetrack, there is also increasing market pressure for companies to offer something smaller, sleeker and altogether cooler.
Industry experts have long been drawing parallels between the world of the car and that of the PC. While manufacturers like Mercedes have plenty of cars with engines over 3 litres in their catalogue, they also have a new drive for efficiency. The 1.6 Mercedes A-180 is capable of 126mph, which is almost 60mph past the legal limit on UK motorways and easily enough to get you arrested before your license is removed.
So cool/powerful things can come in small shapes and sizes.
KitGuru caught up with Joran nice and early, just to get an exclusive tour around the gorgeously tiny Nightblade.
