MSI Launches Gaming AIO Desktops with GTX 980M and GTX 970M GPUs

MSI, world-renowned manufacturer in gaming hardware today introduces two 27-inch All-in-One Gaming PCs: AG270 2QE and AG270 2QC, the first in the world featuring the all-new NVIDIA GeForce GTX980M and GTX970M discrete graphics cards. Both PCs are equipped with a 4th gen Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and up to 16GB DDR3 memory to get the maximum out of PC games. The 27-inch display is also one of its kind, including Anti-Flicker and Less Blue Light technology applied to its anti-glare implementation, so gamer's eyes are protected better from eyestrain during long gaming sessions.

MSI is the first manufacturer in the world to develop All-in-One PCs designed for e-Sports, packing a high-performance graphics card into the limited space of a highly-integrated All-in-One PC. The AG270 is the first AIO to introduce the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M/970M discrete graphics card with up to 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. The next-generation NVIDIA Maxwell architecture delivers advanced performance, unmatched power efficiency, and cutting edge features for truly unique ways to game. Gamers will be able to enjoy perfect visuals without lag in both singleplayer or online MP modes in the latest or upcoming PC game titles such as Far Cry 4, Assassins Creed: Unity, and EVOLVE.
Innovative Screen Protection for Gamer Eyes
To provide gamers with an even better gaming experience, the AG270 uses an anti-glare matte display featuring Anti-Flicker technology, which stabilizes the electrical current to prevent serious flickering seen in standard displays. Together with Less Blue Light technology, this helps to reduce eye fatigue after extended use while also enhancing the quality of the gaming environment.

Killer LAN
The AG270 is equipped with Killer Game Networking accelerator that prioritizes the gaming packet to greatly reduce the latency of online game data-streams. Killer LAN also improves the streaming of online videos, allowing users to enjoy even smoother high-quality video streams.

MSI Super RAID 2 for super-fast game loading times
Apart from the graphics card and network card, the best way to boost gaming performance lies in the storage media. The AG270 supports up to three mSATA SSDs that can be configured to run in RAID 0 for read speeds of up to 1500MB/sec, taking gaming loading times to unprecedented speeds.

Speakers & Amplifier empowered by Yamaha
In order to provide gamers with the best audio experience, MSI utilizes high-quality original Yamaha 5W + 5W Speakers & Amplifier within AG270's slim interior space. Each speaker features a built-in full-range monomer, and an independent subwoofer monomer to form a 2-way speaker system.

I don't understand the point of these gaming AIOs (they seem to have a very niche market) tbh, yet I want one also. I guess MSI's marketers have accomplished their mission.

gimmick, they did the same on the 880m it didn't have the power to drive textures that large either.

I like the idea of these devices but the only issue I ran into is the mobile GPU choices. I get they are trying to make it small as possible and using those keeps power/heat down, but its still a desktop at the end of the day and hard to upgrade because of that. The last round of these had the HD 8970M which the new GPU is a step up but I do not see these as being something completely awesome because of that design choice.

I get where they are going with these and I love them, but I would like and recommend them more if they went with a full size GPU. But maybe these mobile 980m's will live up to the hype and be dominators.

most of you, who want one, wont enjoy the angle of the monitor. i have been using such design from acer and i solved the angle by not fully opening the back-leg that supports the whole thing. its still stable, and has no tendency to fall forward or anything, but the small legs under the monitor are on their edge instead on full base :) overall its not a bad design, but its still only a transformed laptop.. i wished to exchange the graphics card for a newer model, but i sense there is trouble ahead, likely in bios not able to register any new graphics or these sort of problems.. maybe its better to replace the whole unit, because the lone graphics will be expensive as hell and damnation..
