MSI’s latest desktop computer for gamers is just 10.6 inches tall, but it’s a powerhouse.
The MSI Vortex features an Intel Core i7-6700K quad-core Skylake processor, up to 32GB of RAM, and two desktop-class NVIDIA graphics cards.
But that kind of power doesn’t come cheap: the MSI Vortex sells for $2199 and up.
The entry-level model features dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 SLI graphics cards and 16GB of RAM.
Want more power? $3999 will get you a model with 32GB of RAM and dual GTX 980 SLI graphics cards.
Both models feature:
- Two 128GB PCIe solid state drives for 256GB of Super RAID 4 storage
- A 1TB 7200 RPM SATA hard drive
- Two Thunderbolt ports
- Two HDMI 1.4 ports
- Two mini DisplayPorts
- S/PDIF output
- Four USB 3.0 ports
- Two Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet controllers
Thanks to the Thunderbolt, DisplayPort, and HDMI ports (and heavy-duty graphics capabilities), the system can power up to 6 displays at once.
The system has a 450 watt power supply built in, and the cylindrical case measures about 7.6″ x 7.6′ x 10.6″ and weighs 8.8 pounds. It uses a “vortex” style cooling system which drives hot air out through vents in the top of the case.
