"Small but terrible" just like this phrase, MSI Computer Corp, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, announces the availability of the Vortex. It is a miniature tower with high-performance that redefines compact gaming desktops.

The small gaming cylinder thing which is called the Vortex measures only 10.5 inches tall but can blast away bigger systems with an unlocked Intel Core i7 6700K processor, up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, SSDs in Super RAID 4, and dual NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 GPUs in SLI. MSI’s newest tower is also engineered for superior upgradability, expandability, and compatibility with a variety of connectors, including Thunderbolt 3 that supports up to 40GBs of data transfer rate.

By just these specs it is really awesome and I can say that small is powerful. Too bad this baby is only released in the US (I think) but hopefully in Asia too, where the top gamers can be found.

Anyway here are some of the phrases from its creators. “The revolutionary Vortex gaming tower shatters the misconception that bigger systems deliver more power and performance,” says Andy Tung, president of MSI Pan America. “The groundbreaking system maximizes space and heat dissipation to unlock the power of its components for truly astronomical performance in a Subwoofer size.”

If you want to know more of it specs and details visit us.msi.com. MSI’s Vortex gaming tower will be demoed during GDC from March 16th to 18th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, booth #2036. Other products showcased at the booth will include the GT72S G Tobii with eye-tracking technology running Tom Clancy’s The Division, GT80 Titan and GE62; and the WS60, WS72 4K and WT72 workstations.

The Vortex is now available starting at $2,199.99. For more information about the Vortex or MSI’s complete selection of gaming solutions, visit us.msi.com.
