When it comes to gaming, one very important element that most people would take into consideration first would be the kind of hardware that the gaming PC packs underneath the hood. The case itself might look really, really pretty, but if it does not have any high performance parts within, it would amount to nothing, either. MSI knows this, which is why they have come up with the Vortex G25 gaming desktop that will not only be able to deliver the level of performance that hardcore gamers crave, it will also look good without taking up too much space on your desk.
The Vortex G25 is not a conventional gaming desktop, courtesy of its small form factor setup. Taking it apart, it will be powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, with the ability to handle up to a GTX 1070 graphics card, all within a 2.5-liter chassis. Now that is really compact, no matter which angle you are looking from. Apart from that, the Vortex G25 gaming desktop will also boast of MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan technology that will feature dual blade fans that work in tandem with eight heatpipes. This setup will be able to ensure proper cooling of the CPU and GPU, which in turn provides a 30% performance gain compared to the previous generation of processors.
One of the main reasons for developing the Vortex G25 is to have it function as a gateway for portable and convenient VR experiences. The front panel itself features a power jack which can help to power connected VR headsets, while there is also an HDMI port and a couple of USB 3.0 ports in terms of connectivity. If you own gaming earbuds, MSI’s very own Nahimic VR software will be able to optimize performance and virtual surround sound so that the whole virtual reality experience is even more immersive.
Expect the MSI Vortex G25 to retail for $1,999 and $1,499 for the Vortex G25-022US and the Vortex G25-023US, respectively.
