MSI has announced MEG Trident X2a new desktop designed to run the heaviest workloads thanks to the addition of the next generation of processors Intel Raptor Lakebeing able to equip up to a Core i9-13900KF, and the well-known NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090graphics card that has established itself as the leader in terms of power and performance within the consumer sector.
In addition to a top-of-the-line processor and graphics card, MSI’s MEG Trident X2 packs in features like the company’s own Human Machine Interface (HMI), intuitive controls, and a 4.5-inch touchscreen.
The equipment is designed to dissipate heat to the maximum and allow the user to run the heaviest workloads without having to worry about temperatures thanks to MSI’s exclusive Silent Storm Cooling 3 system. The heat generated by the processor is dissipated by a 280mm liquid cooler, while the airflow from the power supply maintains the “in and out” principle to make heat dissipate quickly.
The MSI MEG Trident X2 It has DDR5 memories and as internal connections it has an M.2 slot for a PCIe 5 x4 SSD, one M.2 slot for a PCIe 4 x4 SSD, one M.2 slot with auto-switch between PCIe 4 x4 and SATA, two 2.5-inch drive bays and two 3.5-inch drive bays. On the outside and front it has a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, a 3.5mm microphone jack and another 3.5mm headphone jack.
On the back, the user will find a USB 3.2 Gen 2 × 2 Type-C, three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, an HDMI 1.4 output, an RJ45 connector for 2.5Gbps Ethernet, an RJ45 connector for Gigabit Ethernet , a PS/2 port, five audio jacks, and one S/PDIF. As a wireless connection has Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX211 with Bluetooth 5.2.
The weight of the computer can range between 14 and 17.22 kilograms and the operating system is Windows 11 Home Advanced or FreeDOS depending on the variant of the MSI MEG Trident X2 selected in the purchase process. Using Intel’s Wi-Fi could open the door to easier compatibility with Linux, but it’s important to note that such a system may lack controls to manage specific aspects.
Due to the powerful internal components that it includes and certain features such as the dissipation system implemented, the MSI MEG Trident X2 does not aim to be exactly a cheap computer, although it must be taken into account that it is a product aimed at the most demanding gaming contexts. or to the professional public.
