Calls it the smallest VR-ready gaming PC

With virtual reality gaining traction with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets and with system requirements getting lower, MSI has decided that it is the right time to come up with a small and portable gaming system that is also VR-Ready, the MSI Trident.

Describing it as the "smallest VR-Ready gaming PC", MSI has come up with a gaming rig packed in a 4.7L chassis with quite decent hardware packed inside it. The MSI Trident will be coming with a choice between Intel Core i5-6400 or Core i7-6700 Skylake CPU and custom Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 graphics card with either 3GB or 6GB of memory.

In order to keep it well cooled, MSI used its own Silent Storm Cooling 2, which promises to both provide best possible cooling efficiency but also low noise.

The rest of the specifications include support for up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 memory in two SO-DIMM slots, one 2.5-inch HDD/SSD and one M.2 SATA SSD slot, integrated Intel WGI219V Gigabit Ethernet and dual-band 802.11ac WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2, 230W PSU, single USB 3.1 Type-C and three USB 3.1 Type-A ports, one VR-Link HDMI-out port, couple of USB 2.0 ports and more.

The MSI Trident measures 353.73x251.35x97.56mm without a stand and can be used with a vertical stand. It is designed to fit in any room and even comes with MSI Gaming Mystic Light RGB LEDs.

Unfortunately, MSI did not provide any details regarding the price but did note that it should be coming sometime by the end of this month so we will surely keep an eye on it.
