MSI to Introduce Trident X Series Desktops Powered by Raytracing And NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti

MSI is looking to introduce their Trident pre-built desktop systems paired with was is going to be (at least for a while) the world's highest-performance gaming graphics cards. The Trident X revisits MSI's "console-sized" PC take, packing seriously powerful innards in what can only be thought of as insultingly small quarters (10 liters in volume, anyone?).

Of course, the Trident X features MSI's "Silent Storm Cooling" system to allow for this hardware to be cooled without a hassle. The Trident X will follow on previous Trident iterations with a front HDMI port for VR aficionados. Expect pricing to be substantially higher than previous iterations of the Trident, though - just remember the RTX 2080 Ti's retail pricing for a punch in the gut and a throwback to reality land.

No interest in buying anything like this, but I wouldn't mind building one (if I wasn't already committed to ATX parts).

They also have a series of products using the Trident naming....?

Doesn't mean they own a copyright to that name, but... you can see the connection...

This is why it pays to read the thread prior to posting :shadedshu:
Which i did. But no one included a link to specific G.Skill product that uses the same name. People only mentioned that G.Skill maybe uses/used the Trident name not that they actually had Trident X naming too (albeit for DDR3 memory).

Yeah, you're out of the loop. Trident-Z now for DDR4... which has nothing to do with what MSI is doing. I've had several MSI prebuilts and still have one, and as a whole they offer a pretty darn good gaming package, especially since they have MSI-designed GPUs in them, and MSI has some of the best gaming GPUs (IMHO).

Don't care. I just posted because i found it funny they used the exact same naming. As if they ran out of "cool" names to choose from.
