MSI Intros 27-inch AIO Gaming Desktop

MSI introduced on Thursday a new 27-inch all-in-one PC, the AG270. This setup was designed and built with gamers in mind and should be ideal for gamers who have no interest in building or modifying their own gaming PC.

The AG270 actually arrives in two flavors: one with an Intel Core i7-4860HQ (2.4 GHz, 3.6 GHz) processor and one with an Intel Core i7-4700HQ (2.4 GHz, 3.4 GHz). They also have different Nvidia-based graphics cards: the GeForce GTX 880M with 8 GB of GDDR5 VRAM (AG270 2PE), and the GeForce GTX 870M with 3 GB of GDDR5 VRAM (AG270 2PC).

According to MSI, both AIO PCs feature anti-glare matte displays and Anti-Flicker technology that stabilizes the electrical current to prevent flickering, which can cause eye fatigue after long periods in front of the screen. The AIOs also support Less Blue Light technology and utilize the company's "exclusively-developed" ScenaMax image optimization software.

The specs show that the AIOs can be configured with up to 16 GB of RAM (2 slots), and with a 2 TB 7200 RPM hard drive up to three mSATA SSDs. They also sport Killer DoubleShot Wireless N connectivity, a DVD Super Multi optical drive or a Blu-ray writer, and a 3-in-1 SD card reader. There are also two 5W Yamaha speakers.

"To provide gamers with the best audio experience, MSI have spared no resources to invest in utilizing high-quality original Yamaha 5W + 5W Speakers & Amplifier," states the PR. "The two powerful full range speakers are flanked by an independent subwoofer to form a 2-way speaker system. Be it experiencing explosions in action games or pure audio, gamers will be amazed by the audio quality of the AG270 in-built Yamaha Speakers & Amplifier."

On the back, the two AIO gaming rigs provide a microphone jack, an earphones jack, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, an Ethernet port and a D-Sub port. On the side, the PCs provide two USB 3.0 ports (one can charge a mobile device), and the SD card reader. There's also a 2MP camera on the front for taking selfies or video calling on Skype.

MSI didn't say when or where these AIOs will be launched, or for how much, so stay tuned.

    But what if you want to eye-finity 2 more monitors to this? Then its only so so overkill.
    Even if its a mobile GPU chip, its more powerful than my current desktop built a couple years ago.

    odd resolution on the 27", at least give us an 1440p option for those who want.

    If it's using laptop parts, why not just get a laptop? Now an AIO with desktop parts would be interesting....

    the point of laptop parts is lower heat output and get smaller case behind monitor, you only loose 20% performance, and some people like the enat little package. but if it makes noise its worthless.
