MSI launches new “Made in America” Gaming Desktop lineup

MSI recently revealed a mix of new and updated gaming PCs that will form a new “MIA Gaming Desktop” lineup. “MIA” stands for “Made in America,” as the new line of PCs will be assembled in America at MSI’s U.S. headquarters in City of Industry, California. That said, as is the case with many products marked as “MIA,” some of the components will still be sourced from outside the States. MSI told the folks over at Tom’s Hardware that the gaming PCs will be built in the U.S. in order “to facilitate the shipment of its products in North America.” No further details were offered.

The new MIA series consists of the Aegis RS, Aegis R, Codex R and Aegis SE. The the first two of these systems will be assembled inside MSI’s Gungnir 110R case. MSI’s MAG Force 100R will be home to the Codex R, and the Aegis SE will come in the MPG Gungnir 100. All four systems will be accompanied by MSI’s Vigor GK30 gaming keyboard and Clutch GM11 gaming mouse. The full specs of each system are as follows:

Hope MSI doesn’t get slapped down because a resistor was made outside of the US…

Really, no Ryzen options? I’ll just build it myself then, which I suppose is just as MIA as the MSI lineup.

That said, as is the case with many products marked as “MIA,”

 
 
At Intel, we have ENTIRE ROADMAPS that are MIA.
