MSI announces Vortex G65 gaming PCs
After announcing numerous gaming notebooks, MSI has turned its attention to gaming desktops. The company has just announced two new models that belong to the so-called Vortex G65 line. The new computers come with NVIDIA SLI configurations out of the box. The first computer has two GeForce GTX 960 cards and is known as SLI-011, while the second PC has two GeForce GTX 980 cards and is known as SLI-002.
On the inside the machines share most of their tech specs – they come with Intel Z170-based motherboards, Intel Core i7-6700K processors, two 128 GB M.2 SSDs in RAID 0, a single 1 TB hard drive at 7200 rpm, Killer Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI/Mini DisplayPort/USB 3.0/Thunderbolt/USB 3.1 ports and more. The version with two GTX 960 cards has 16 GB of DDR4 memory, while the model with two GTX 980 cards has 32 GB of memory. In both cases, however, you can install up to 64 GB of DDR4 SDRAM, so all your memory needs will be satisfied. The computers offer an unusual but cool looking chassis that measures 193 x 178 x 268 mm and weigh around 4 kilograms.
The Vortex G65 computers sell for USD 2200 (GTX 960 version) and USD 4000 (GTX 980 version) in the United States.
