COMPUTEX 2017: The MSI Vortex G25 is a PC gaming desktop disguised as a gaming console

The MSI Vortex G25 looks like a gaming console.

Gaming consoles used to one have key advantage over their PC gaming counterparts: they are a lot sleeker and pleasant on the eyes. PC gaming systems are usually bulky and not very sexy-looking. However, a new breed of ultra-slim gaming desktops are changing that perception and the latest one is the Vortex G25 from MSI.

Frequently used ports are convenient located at the front.

The MSI Vortex G25 displaces just 2.5 liters and is therefore fantastically slim. It will give the new PlayStation 4 Slim a run for its money. It’s designed like a console too, with the most frequently used ports, like the USB Type-C and USB ports, conveniently positioned on the front.

The Vortex G25 was designed with VR use in mind, and so the front panel has a convenient power jack that can be used to power VR headsets.

The bottom panel can be easily removed to upgrade the memory and storage.

Inside, the Vortex G25 can be spec’ed with up to a seventh generation Intel Core i7 processor and up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. It can also be equipped with up to 64GB of DDR4 memory. Clearly, this is one of crazy powerful gaming machine.

The bottom panel can also be easily removed for users to upgrade the memory and storage on their own.

No word yet on local availability and pricing, but we will update this article once we have details.
