MSI Trident X

 

While the Trident X may cast a small net, MSI's compact gaming PC does its job well, with top-notch performance at maximum settings and above-average upgrade potential.

High-end gaming performance in a slim, compact chassis. Loads of storage. Uses standard, upgrade-ready parts. Close-to-60fps rates at 4K in recent AAA games.

Niche target audience. Overkill for most gaming scenarios. Case includes a lot of plastic.

Bottom Line: While the Trident X may cast a small net, MSI's compact gaming PC does its job well, with top-notch performance at maximum settings and above-average upgrade potential.

MSI Trident X Review

 

A surprisingly affordable high-end rig.

Price ; Swappable side panel ; Slim, light chassis

Air-cooled processor ; Insides aren't much to look at

It's not the prettiest prebuilt on the market, but that doesn't matter once you see it run. It’s quiet, compact and, given the list of components, cheaper than most other high-end rigs.

MSI Trident X Review: A Slim and Superpowerful Gaming PC

 

The Trident X delivers a ridiculous amount of performance in a slim body than can go unnoticed in any setting. It even ships with MSI-branded peripherals like a keyboard and mouse. And while it doesn't offer tool-free upgradability, the Trident X's...

Slim, low-profile design ; Powerful performance and graphics ; Upgradable parts ; Included peripherals

No tool-free upgradability

The MSI Trident X offers incredibly powerful performance and graphics packed into a sleek body that features multiple, upgradable components.

MSI Trident X Review

 

The MSI Trident X is a small PC that packs a big punch. It only weighs 6.5kg, but it includes an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card and one of Intel's new Coffee Lake-S processors. To get this much power inside such a tiny case, though, you're going...

There’s a lot to like about this machine – as our MSI Trident X review demonstrates. The updated Coffee Lake-S processor delivers formidable power, with more ability in single- and multi-threaded applications – so it’ll prove faster than its rivals in...

MSI Trident X Review: Stunning speed from new Intel and Nvidia hardware – and a surprisingly small design

Superb CPU power ; Fast Turing GPU ; Small, good-looking enclosure ; 32GB of RAM

Expensive ; Underwhelming motherboard ; No easy upgrade paths

Incredible speeds and smart design, but it's expensive – and more conventional PCs are more versatile.

MSI Trident X review

 

Fast, small and expensive – a tiny triumph

Exceptional performance ; Slim, small design ; Cool and quiet operation

Quite expensive ; Tricky, cramped internals

Intel Coffee Lake-S and Nvidia Turing deliver formidable power in a surprisingly small space – but you’ll have to pay quite a large sum for it. The new components deliver formidable performance. The Turing GPU pelted through games benchmarks with...

MSI Trident X review: It's easy to make a strong case for this gaming desktop

 

It's not cheap but it's far from overpriced, and the spec-sheet on the MSI Trident X ticks far too many boxes to get tripped up by lacklustre looks.

Great performance ; Ready to play in seconds

Boring looks ; None of MSI's usual perks

MSI Trident X (i7-9700K & RTX 2080) System Review

 

MSI's Trident line of PCs has been around for some time now, and it is known for cramming the latest Looking for a new console-killer desktop PC? The MSI Trident X could be just the thing

Very compact.

Tempered glass panel on the right hand side of the machine seems odd.

The MSI Trident X is an excellent machine with good all-round performance and very low noise levels. It doesn’t come cheap, but this one of the best compact pre-built systems I have reviewed.

MSI Trident X Review

 

Boasting an Intel Core i7-9700K processor alongside an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, MSI have certainly put effort into shoehorning this horsepower into a small machine but can it satisfy the needs of game...
