Z2 HP Mini G3 will have many advantages, but may not yet be ready for virtual reality, as opposed to the new compact MSI desktop PC that seems to be up to the task. MSI Trident is a desktop PC aimed at gamers, which measures 345 x 233 x 71 mm and weighs just over 3 kg (with a volume of just 4.72 liters), so that aesthetically looks like a gaming console for the living room (can not remember you the Xbox one?), but within the Taiwanese company has integrated an Nvidia GeForce GTX 10, a sophisticated cooling system and a 230 watt power supply.
Some might mistake him for a version of “fixed” MSI VR One, but by looking at the design and its technical specifications it is easy to understand that Trident is a completely different desktop computer. The chassis is embellished with inserts with customizable RGB LED with 16.8 million colors and four mode (Static, Breathe, Gradient and Gaming & Music), while the hardware equipment is the most powerful.
MSI has chosen an Intel Core i5-6400 processor or a Core i7-6700 (Skylake chipset Intel H110) who are able to give the right power even with 4K application, up to 32GB of RAM DDR4-2133MHz on two SO-slot DIMM and a slot for 2.5-inch hard disk or SSD, as well as a slot for SSD M.2 SATA. The graphics card, which we know will be an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, will have 3GB or 6GB of dedicated memory depending on the version. On board will form 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, Gigabit Ethernet and a good set of ports, including a USB 3.1 Type-C, four-port USB 3.1 Type-A and four USB 2.0, four USB 2.0 Type-A , two HDMI outputs, a VR links connecting a HDMI to VGA and 3.5mm audio jack for headphones and microphone.
In order to manage the heat generated by these components, MSI has developed a cooling system called “Silent Storm Cooling 2” that divides the key components of PC (basically those that produce more heat) in separate rooms and well ventilated to maintain temperatures always under control. The quiet is guaranteed because the fans have special blades, which reduces the noise emission.
MSI Trident will be available on the market in the coming weeks at a price of 999 Euros, with Mafia III and pad free.
