MSI Trident 3 Mini-PC Announced At CES, Features GTX 1060, i7-7700 and Core i5-7400 Option
With CES 2017 in full flow right now, MSI has revealed their latest piece of equipment in the form of MSI Trident 3, a console-like mini PC.
Similar to multiple Steam Machines that have been available for over a year now, the MSI Trident 3 aims to deliver a full-fledged PC gaming experience while making sure the portability which consoles offer (read small form factor) isn’t sacrificed.
This new PC isn’t just targeted towards those short on desk room as anyone who doesn’t want a huge tower casing sitting in their room can make full use of the MSI Trident 3 thanks to the power it packs in the form of GTX 1060.
Powered by the Nvidia GTX 1060 and Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processor lineup, the MSI Trident 3 is a fully VR ready PC that is also small enough to be easily carried in luggage.
The system will be available for sale starting at $899 which is a decent price for a latest generation VR ready PC.
Those interested in buying it can choose from a variety of customization options to include with their system including their choice of processor, although only from two available ones: Core i7-7700 and Core i5-7400.
Customers will also have the options to equip the system with either the 3GB variant of the 6GB one of GTX 1060. The RAM can also be upgraded up to 32GB DDR4 clocked at 2400MHz. For storage, customers can choose between a 2.5” HDD or SSD while a M.2 SSD is included.
To round off the entire package, MSI has also thrown in a bundle of MSI software and features such as Nahimic 2.5 Audio Enhancer and customizable RGB LEDs to change the looks of the Trident 3.
Since the Trident 3 isn’t actually a Steam Machine, it is powered by Windows 10 Home instead of Valve’s SteamOS.
