MSI is apparently betting heavily on prebuilt systems these days, and today the company unveiled a new addition to its family of gaming-oriented all-in-one desktops. Meet the new version of the sleek but powerful MSI Gaming 24.
The Gaming 24 is available with a choice of two CPUs: the quad-core, four-thread Core i5-6300HQ, whose clock speeds range from 2.3 GHz to 3.2 GHz, or the heavier-hitting Core i7-6700HQ, with its four cores and eight threads clocked at 2.6 GHz base and 3.5 GHz turbo speeds. Graphics options are likewise sensible. MSI lets buyers choose between GeForce GTX 950M or the GTX 960M graphics cards, both fitted with 4GB of RAM.
Despite being an all-in-one affair, the Gaming 24 is reasonably flexible when it comes to customization and upgrading. There are two DDR4 SO-DIMM slots that can hold a maximum of 32GB of RAM, while the storage section has both 2.5" and 3.5" slots, along with two PCIe M.2 connectors. For networking needs, the Gaming 24 comes with Intel's Wireless-AC 3165 controller (1x1) and a Killer E2400 LAN adapter. Bluetooth 4.2 is on tap, too.
As the name implies, the Gaming 24's screen is a 24" unit, with a flickerless LED backlight. The base model's resolution is 1080p, but MSI has a 4K option available. As an added bonus, gamers can plug in a console directly to the Gaming 24's HDMI input port and use it as a standalone screen.
