MSI's Mini Gaming PC: VR-Ready & Very Quiet

MSI's Mini Gaming PC: VR-Ready & Very Quiet
March 31, 2017

MSI claims its Trident 3 desktop is the world's smallest VR-ready gaming PC. And now it's available in white.


A black version of the petite 4.7-liter system was originally announced at CES 2017, but for a limited time you can get an Arctic color option. It's still running on an ITX-format MSI GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, which, combined with its Core i7 processor, delivers enough performance for VR gaming. Plus, MSI makes it easy to connect a VR headset with its VR Link HDMI port, and there's software for optimizing the hardware with one click.


What's also impressive is that for a gaming PC that measures only 13.6 by 2.8 by 9.2 inches (34.5 by 7.1 by 23.4 cm), MSI's cooling system can stay super quiet -- less than 36dB under full load.


While the PC market is declining overall, gaming systems continue to be a bright spot. Full details are on MSI's site now, with it expected to hit stores some time in April.
