MSI Reveals G-Series AG2712 Gaming All-In-One PC

By - Source: Engadget | B 17 comments

MSI has released a new G-Series All-In-One gaming PC.

Following on from the earlier teaser of MSI's G-series, we now have a full reveal of the AG212 All-In-One Gaming PC. The computer carries a THX-certified speaker set and a 27" full HD matte display that sadly doesn't come with the option for a touchscreen. All versions of the AG212 will feature the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670MX Graphics card, a media card reader, HDMI, VGA and USB 3.0 ports and a variety of Ivy Bridge i5 and i7 CPUs for users to choose from. 

Though there has been no word on pricing or availability, it is known that the lineup will be refreshed following the release of the upcoming Haswell range of CPUs.

    Why would you want touchscreen on a gaming PC, lol. Guess people who don't mind dirty screens would.

    Interesting device. I don't think the lack of a touchscreen hurts it at all seeing as it's targeted toward gamers and media creators who need the extra GPU horsepower. Other photos online show HDMI in and out so it definitely has some perks to it assuming the system can record video from the HDMI in. When desk space is a commodity this has benefits over mITX in terms of footprint but sadly lacks the ease of upgrades. It'll be interesting to see how it sells.

    If it has Windows 8 then it needs touchscreen.

    Why do you need a touchscreen when you have a keyboard and mouse?

    my probmel with all in ones is that they are usually a pain in the ass to work on and sometimes impossible to upgrade. at least when i buy a tower and an atx mobo i cna replace the graphics card if the cpu is still relatively good like when i replace my sli gts 450's for a gtx 570, my 955 black is still able to push it and get getting 60+ fps in everythign i play, also when you buy an all in one you are buying a screenvs buyign a good monitor which coudl last you through several builds and then later become a second or third monitor, or a gift to somebody down the road... while msi makes quality stuf fusually so i imagine this will last for years the people looking for high end gaming or workstations probably want upgradability .. then again maybe they are goign after a niche market and have done the research and think it will sell who am i to judge :)

    One of the major points about Windows 8 is the whole optimized for touch Modern UI.
    Navigating that is designed for touch and feels out of place on a mouse and keyboard.
    (A gamer will likely spend majority time in the desktop, but even gamers dont spend all their time gaming, simply tasks on Windows 8 would be easier if it had a touchscreen)

    this is good for the dorm or city noobs where space is insufficient and also the kiddies living under their parents roof and want to game, their parents will buy it and they never upgrade, they just buy new machines every 6 to 8 years.

    A desktop with laptop parts... Why not just include a touch screen and call it a giant surface tablet?

    I don't always game on a PC, but when I do, it's not on a POS AIO with windows 8.

    I think it should be ILLEGAL to sell a "670M" or "670MX" that has different performance than a 670. That's just deceitful.

    If a "670M" has the same performance as a 660 then just make it a 660.

    I don't know what how a "670MX" performs but I doubt it's as good as a 670. (really? A 670, 670M AND a 670MX?)
