I/O wise, there's 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.0b, and 1x Dual Link DVI (and built-in triple-display support).

Unreleased MSI GeForce RTX 20-series EVOKE Card Teased

In our coverage of the Creator 400M E-ATX case, one of the stock images caught our eye - an unreleased GeForce RTX 20-series graphics card from the EVOKE family of products by MSI targeted at creators. This card distinctly features the champagne-gold color scheme and matte finish of the company's first EVOKE graphics card based on the Radeon RX 5700 XT; has distinct "GeForce RTX" badging on top, and a chunky triple-slot cooling solution that's so heavy that MSI included a support brace with the card. The card pulls power from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors, and the GPU under the hood could be anything from an RTX 2070 Super, to an RTX 2080 Super, or even an RTX 2080 Ti (going by the single NVLINK finger). If we were to harbor a guess, it features two large fans venting onto a split aluminium fin-stack heatsink.

MSI Setting Up a Gaming Desktop Build-to-Order Production Line in the US

MSI is reportedly setting up a build-to-order desktop PC production line in the U.S. With an online storefront taking orders, this unit will assemble gaming desktops from MSI components imported from Taiwan and China. The decision to set up a pre-built unit in the US may have been influenced by U.S. import tariff regimes that favor importing components. MSI will label the finished products "MIA" (short for "Made in America,") a marketing name that isn't strictly intended to convey the "Made in the USA" tagline used by American manufacturers.

The first MIA gaming desktops will be four variants of Aegis, which combines 10th Gen Intel Core processors with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs. Options include the Core i9-10900K, i7-10700, and i5-10400F; along with GPU options spanning from RTX 2080 Super thru GTX 1660 Super, with prices ranging between USD $799 through $1,699.

MSI Announces Optix MAG274R Gaming Monitor for E-Sports

MSI, the world's leading manufacturer for true gaming hardware, is proudly expanding the hardware possibilities for all gamers. This time, we are honored to introduce our latest IPS eSports Gaming Monitor: Optix MAG274R. Equipped with an IPS panel, a high refresh rate of 144Hz and a fast response time of 1 ms, Optix MAG274R will let you enjoy the best viewing experience and the smoothest gaming experience at the same time.

Why IPS? Compared to a traditional TN panel, IPS panels provide a wider viewing angle with minimum color shifts and an astonishing viewing experience. However, most gaming monitors are not equipped with IPS panels due to response time. For a fast response time equal to or less than 1 ms, you had to turn to TN or VA panel gaming monitors in the past. With the ever-changing nature of technology, fast response time and high-quality viewing experience are no longer mutually exclusive. Always improving, MSI will keep on challenging itself in the design of gaming monitors, and ensure that you are always ahead of your opponents.

MSI Confirms "Zen 3" Support on its AMD 400-series Chipset Motherboards with 16MB ROMs

MSI confirmed that AMD's "Zen 3" processor support will be added to the company's AMD 400-series chipset motherboards, including the non-MAX SKUs that only have 16 MB EEPROM chips. Marketing Director Eric van Beurden in an MSI Insider video presentation confirmed that with the non-MAX motherboards, "Zen 3" support will be added as AMD planned to go about doing so (i.e. add "Zen 3" support by cutting out support for older processors and slimming down the UEFI setup program down to the GSE Click BIOS program, which may not correspond with your motherboard's original feature-set). On the other hand, the MAX SKUs, with their 32 MB EEPROMs will receive "Zen 3" support painlessly, meaning that the board may retain support for some, if not all, older processor generations, and retain their original feature-rich UEFI setup programs.

MSI Releases "Sound Tune" AI-Powered Noise Cancellation Software

MSI, a world leader in gaming and content creation hardware, unveils the MSI Sound Tune, an AI-powered noise cancellation software that filters out all the unwanted background noises to remarkably enhance users' communication experiences. "MSI is constantly pushing the boundaries of technology. The new MSI Sound Tune breaks the traditional boundaries on noise reduction by integrating deep learning AI technology to audio signal processing, allowing users who have to work from home amid the global pandemic to communicate clearly and stay productive with their tasks," said Harry Kao, MSI Technical Director.

MSI Sound Tune's AI-powered noise cancellation is achieved through Deep Neural Network (DNN) with more than 0.5 billion Synthetic Noisy Speech Data to help simulate the way human brain works. The traditional noise reduction technology, with its manually compiled algorithm, doesn't work well in environments with complicated noise sources, such as keyboard noises, construction site noises, coffee shop whispers, or the loud noise that overwhelms the vocal sounds. Comparatively speaking, the MSI Sound Tune, utilizing human brains' excellent ability to distinguish human vocal sounds from environmental noises, can extract the vocal sounds from complicated environments, giving users extra clear, noise-free commuication in various surroundings.
