In the era of consoles, PC gaming is struggling but still staying afloat. While playing games on a PC provides a much better overall experience, it’s widely known that building a capable rig costs a lot more than buying a console.
But if you prefer PC gaming and price is not a deal-breaker for you, you’re in luck. Leading PC hardware manufacturer MSI has just revealed something every PC gamer dreams of: its MSI Vortex Mini gaming PC, a stunning machine with amazing performance.
The MSI Vortex Mini is a mini-tower gaming PC which the company calls the “world’s smallest gaming cylinder.” But purchasing the world’s smallest gaming cylinder will be a costly experience — the base model comes in at a hefty $2,199 for the base model. The PC is powered by the following:
- 4GHz Intel Core-i7 6700k processor
- dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 SLI graphics
- 16GB of system memory
Another costlier option starts at $3,999 and features dual GTX 980 SLI 16G GDDR5 graphics cards and 32GB of RAM. Both models feature four RAID hard drives: a 256GB PCIe SSD, two 128GB SSDs, and a 1TB 7200 RPM conventional drive.
A great thing about this device is its versatility. As it is a mini-tower, it measures just 7.61 by 7.01 by 10.55 inches, making it extremely portable so that you can set it up almost anywhere. The MSI Vortex is, of course, powered by Windows 10.
“The revolutionary Vortex gaming tower shatters the misconception that bigger systems deliver more power and performance,” Andy Tung, president of MSI Pan America, said in a statement. “The groundbreaking system maximizes space and heat dissipation to unlock the power of its components for truly astronomical performance in a subwoofer size.”
As for connectivity, this device is solidly equipped for mini-tower standards, with four USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt 3 connectors. Additionally, its dual GPUs support up to 6 to six video outputs simultaneously.
