Computex 2019: MSI Curved Chassis and Monitors, X570 Motherboards, Gaming and Creator Laptops

MSI’s booth was busy as usual with lots of gaming laptops on display. This year they took a step further and introduced laptops designed for “content creators”. There were some mods on display but not many.

There wasn’t many mods on display … only pre-built systems with air coolers showing off their new X570 motherboards and and some Intel motherboards with GeForce RTX 20-series.


We saw some of their curved monitors at the booth, and on display were 3 curved gaming monitors linked up together. The Optix MAG27CQ offers 27-inch screen, 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, 1440p resolution and 178° wide viewing angle. It was quite an experience. 


Next we have the world’s first ever “curved” chassis. Where do they get these ideas from? Anyway, it looks great for showcasing at exhibitions … but I’m not too sure about using it at home.


You can’t go anywhere without seeing X570 motherboards and here they had 3 on display. MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon wifi, X570 Gaming Edge wifi and X570 Gaming Plus. All come with PCIE 4.0 and integrated heatset/fan for the chipset.


We saw some models gaming on MSI’s laptop as well as testing out the “creator” laptops for streaming.

MSI have really taken off with their gaming laptops in recent years. Mention gaming laptops and the first brand that comes to mind is MSI. So this year of course, they came prepared with a top of gaming laptops on display, including their new range of “creator” laptops.


Apparently, this MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z is the world’s fastest RTX 2080 Ti … it comes with a super overclocked GPU running at 1770 MHz, advanced cooling solution, and an OLED dashboard.
