If you like computers with unique looks, MSI has you covered with the MEG Aegis Ti5. Being a high-end gaming PC, the Aegis Ti5 won’t have a shocking list of specs, but the tidy case for all of these devices is definitely not just a box. In fact, the Aegis Ti5 case looks like something right outside of the Tron.
It doesn’t seem like it’s all just aesthetics, as there are actually some functions for the condition as well. It comes with a built-in LED disc on the front that can be used for many different purposes. It can display system status, but it can also be used to toggle between a few different lighting and sound settings that can be customized through MSI’s Dragon Center software. You can also use it to play games or even to display weather or temperature information based on your location.
On the inside, MSI says Silent Storm Cooling 4 will serve separate CPU, GPU, power unit and voltage-regulating unit chambers that allow each component to stay cooler for longer under heavy loads, thus increasing performance. Speaking of components, the Aegis Ti5 appears to be packed with a lot of high-end devices, including the Core i9-10900K and even the GeForce RTX 3080 is very hard to find.
Buyers also have the option to equip the computer with up to 128GB of DDR4 RAM, although if you are only buying this for games you probably don’t need to go that far. The motherboard supports Intel’s Z490 chipset and the computer uses a standard 750W 80 Plus Gold PSU, although MSI doesn’t confirm this power supply manufacturer in the spec sheet I sent today.
The computer also comes with the removal of the IO kit which includes one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one microphone jack, and one headphone jack at the front. Around the back, we have two USB 2.0 ports, a PS / 2 Combo port, an HDMI 1.4 port, another USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, 3 USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, Thunderbolt 3 ports, 2 RJ45 ports, and 5 Audio jacks, S / PDIF optical out.
All in all, it’s an impressive PC, but it starts at $ 3,399 – priced well beyond the affordability of many PC players. On the one hand, this $ 3,399 configuration comes with the RTX 3080, so MSI could find some buyers tired of trying (and failing) to buy the standalone 3080. The MSI MEG Aegis Ti5 is available starting today from both Newegg and Abt.
