At CES 2021, MSI announced the MAG Trident S gaming mini PC. This gaming PC is very attractive by adopting a compact game console design. Performance is also very powerful with Ryzen processors from AMD.
Features of MSI MAG Trident S 2022
Unfortunately, MSI has postponed the sale of the MAG Trident S in 2021. Its debut has been pushed back to 2022 and is planned to be showcased again at CES 2022.
MSI has also updated its specifications. Especially in the processor sector. According to MSI, the MAG Trident S 2022 will be powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 5700G processor. Replaces the AMD Ryzen 7 4700G processor in the first version of the MAG Trident S. MSI will also still provide two DDR4 RAM slots and a slot to increase its storage capacity.
One that is absent from the MSI MAG Trident S is in the graphics sector. Even though it is in the category of PC gaming, MSI does not equip it with a discrete graphics card. MAG Trident S only relies on AMD Radeon Vega 8 which is directly integrated with AMD Ryzen 7 5700G.
There are two reasons the MSI Trident S doesn’t carry a discrete graphics card. First, this compromise was made in order to keep the design compact and sleek. The dimensions and design itself are similar to the Xbox One X console.
The second reason, MSI Trident S is specifically designed as a gaming PC solution based on cloud computing or cloud gaming. So, to play games, gamers can subscribe to online game streaming services that will be available on various platforms in the future.
With these specifications, the MAG Trident S is sufficient to accommodate gaming at 4K resolution. This gaming PC also supports a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. In addition, gamers can immediately enjoy the AMD FSR (FidelityFX Super Resolution) feature. This feature is designed to enable upscaling techniques that will produce higher-resolution visuals than lower-resolution images. Gamers can also take advantage of the MSI App Player application to play Android-based mobile games.
