MSI boosts Gaming 24 AIO with Skylake and new graphics cards

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 (1×1) 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.

    [quote<]MSI is apparently betting heavily on prebuilt systems these days[/quote<] I hope they didn't bet too much. Edit: I can't help but suspect products like this are quite niche.

    [quote=”Captain Ned”<] Combo devices are a Bad Idea™ -- too many eggs in one basket. [/quote<] One part is sure to break or become obsolete before the rest. In this case, the monitor will outlast the motherboard and CPU by more than five years, which will outlast the GPU by three years, which will become obsolete a year after purchase.

    What demonic game, birthed in hellish landscape, doth call for an octa-thread i7 but maxes out at a 960M?

    Fail.

      with 4GB of VRAM…

        and 4k resolution

    Why wouldn’t they at least have a 980M available? That just seems silly… they have them in their laptops, and the AIO would have a lot more wattage and cooling available than laptops would, I’d think.

    1) What is the price?
    2) GSync?
    3) Refresh rate?
    4) Panel type?

    For a system built around a display, there are scant few details around the latter. A gaming AIO is pretty much the worst idea ever, as it offers the performance of a laptop with the portability of a…monitor.

    While this type of system isn’t exactly what I look for, a reasonably efficient Polaris GPU coupled with Skylake would probably do a decent job in this form factor.

      Polaris doesn’t exist yet…

        IT EXISTS IN OUR HEARTS!!

        And there’s some heavily guarded prototype silicon floating around, so it’s only quasi-vapor.

    but what’s the price? the problem with all in ones is that once you factor in price they become crazy expensive.

    Wait, doesn’t AC require at least a 2×2 connection?
