MSI to Showcase AMD "Kabini" Tablet at CES 2014

MSI Computer Corp. revealed on Monday that it plans to showcase a number of products during CES 2014 next week. These will include GT, GE and GX gaming notebooks, Quadro workstations for mobile professionals, tablets, touchscreen laptops, a brand new 24-inch All-In-One Gaming PC and the recently released 3K GT60.

"MSI's 2014 lineup of notebooks, tablets and AIOs embodies our commitment to delivering exceptional performance, constant innovation and magnificent style," said Andy Tung, Vice President of Sales for MSI's Pan America Region.  "From the world's thinnest gaming notebook to the first gaming AIO and powerful workstations, 2014 will be a year filled with outstanding products."

For starters, the company will showcase the 3K GT60, which features a WQHD+ 3K display. The company boasts that this laptop is the world's first model to utilize a high resolution display on a true gaming laptop/workstation.

In addition to the 3K GT60, MSI will also display its AMD "Kabini"-based W20 tablet and the AMD configured S12T touchscreen laptop. Also on hand will be MSI's CES Innovations Honorees, the GS70, dubbed as the world's lightest and thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop, and the AG2712A, which utilizes AMD Radeon HD 8970M / R9 M290x discrete graphics card and MSI's proprietary "Flicker-Free" and Blue Light Control display tech.

Also at the show will be a full form factor line up of motherboards and graphics cards, including the Z87I GAMING AC and its companion GTX 760 GAMING ITX, the world's first mini-ITX gaming graphics card with a "revolutionary" RADAX fan.

MSI will announce a number of new motherboards during the show, so stay tuned.

    I think there is little doubt that MSI right now has the best laptops and tablets on the market. The only real problem is finding them. The MSI W20 was revealed months ago, but is still no where to be found in the marketplace.

    Not sure if you're joking or just misinformed, but either way: the best tablets on the market right now are still Nexus 10, Asus MemoPad FHD 10 and maybe some x86 ones. MSI is practically irrelevant when it comes to tablets. When it comes to laptops, their gaming ones are okay, but the build quality is still mediocre compared to Asus, as is their cooling. They are no doubt a great company and I love what they are doing in the GPU market, but they have to get their stuff together when it comes to laptops and tablets if they want to succeed there.

    Seems like he's expressing his opinion, Phantom. He did start off with "I think". In my opinion, ARM tablets are OK but x86 tablets are more versatile. Frankly, in terms of price I wouldn't generally even directly compare ARM to x86. If they can release an AMD-based model that is competitive, it will help keep cost of x86 tablets down, and push graphics performance up.

    Anyway, MSI gaming laptops seem to be pretty good by and large. I know a couple of people that own older Nehalem-based models. They're really good bang for the buck. I'm not certain about their tablets, have you used a lot of MSI tablets? The W20 looks quite decent from what I've seen, might be nice depending on where it lands vs. Atom competition.
