MSI MEG Trident X
Table of Contents
MSI MEG Trident X is a fast-compact gaming desktop and has pretty lights with fans that are seen but not heard. The base configuration of the desktop has sufficient power to spiral downwards in Flight Simulator at 1440p and play the much slower-moving Deliver Us the Moon in 4K HDR. There are limited prebuilt configurations available in the market.
One can buy it with either 32GB or 64GB memory and tons of different combinations of the NVMe or 2.5-inch SSD, along with a single hard disk. The desktop is also available with an MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Super Ventus or 2080 Ti graphics card and 8-core Intel Core i7-10700KF. It is also known that there is also a 10-core Core i9-10900K configuration, but it is very difficult to find the current model for sale anywhere.
The price starts from $2,299, but if you want to have the case and don’t need the power, the price of similar MPG Trident 3 starts at $1,049 with a Core i5-10400F and a GTX 1660 Super. The desktop is also available with the combination with MSI’s Vector GK30 Keyboard and Clutch GM11, which seems to be a little low-budget for this system. The configurations are different in the UK, but the starting price of the entry Trident X model is £2,299. And as per the latest news, it is not available in Australia at all.

The desktop has a great configuration for gaming in 1440p; 4K performance which depends on the game, but if you are using Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling then you can play much well at high resolution. User can easily overclock the CPU, GPU, and memory with MSI’s Dragon Center utility and offers a lot of control over the voltage and frequency parameters. Users can easily upgrade the storage, memory, and graphics card. It has a 650-watt power supply, which can easily handle most upgrades. If you want to replace the PSU, then it might be a little bit tricky because of its compact designs.
Most of the components used in MSI MEG Trident X can be easily accessed from one side of the system. Only the graphics card and some of the NVMe SSD can be extracted from the backside of the motherboard on the other side.
