Known for its outlandish design gaming PCs, MSI has released its latest creation, the MSI MAG Trident S 5M. And this model strongly resembles the Xbox One S console. For example, the new PC can be installed horizontally or vertically, its layout as a whole repeats the design of the gaming system from Microsoft. This applies to the placement of ports, cooling systems and the like.
However, the similarities end in appearance (except for the letter S in the title). MAG Trident S 5M lacks a discrete graphics card, so you can call it gaming only with a stretch. It uses a Ryzen 5000 processor – you can choose from Ryzen 7, 5 and 3 options with integrated Radeon graphics.
The novelty supports up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. The disk subsystem is represented by two M.2 slots for Gen 3 or 4 SSDs plus space for a hard drive. And all this is housed in a case with a volume of just over two liters. At the same time, we note that to increase the amount of RAM or replace drives, the case can be easily opened.
Among other features, we note three video outputs (one each HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4 and VGA), as well as a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C 15 W port on the front panel for fast charging smartphones or tablets.
MSI is positioning its PC as a gaming console for streaming games that can be installed in the living room. Declared support for Steam Remote, MSI App player and Xbox Game Pass. The OS is Windows 11.
Note that for the first time the novelty was shown at the beginning of this year at CES 2022.
AOKZOE is preparing its handheld console that pulls Cyberpunk 2077
AOKZOE has announced a portable console of the same name, which is based on the 8-core Ryzen 6800U processor with 8 cores and 16 threads, as well as a maximum frequency of up to 4.7 GHz. Video processing is handled by 12-core RX 680M graphics based on the RDNA2 architecture. It is noted that the TDP of the hybrid processor will be from 14 to 28 watts, which will increase performance if necessary. The novelty will receive an 8-inch display based on an IPS matrix with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and a brightness of up to 380 nits.
Also announced are 16/32 GB of LPDDR5X-6400 RAM and an M.2 2280 slot for an SSD. Other features include a 48Wh battery and support for 100W fast charging, which will charge the battery in 1.5 hours. There are also stereo speakers, a microSD card reader, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 adapters, and an optional docking station. On the back panel there is a folding stand. Separately, we note that the console supports both Windows and SteamOS.
In terms of performance, Cyberpunk 2077 on the console runs at 60 frames per second, Forza Horizon 5 – more than 100.
In addition, the console has RGB lighting, a gyroscope and a vibration motor. The novelty can be pre-ordered in July 2022, and deliveries will begin in September.
Earlier it was reported that Aya Neo is preparing a portable clamshell console called Flip. In technical terms, it is similar to AOKZOE.
Even Xbox One will be able to give out 60 ks? AMD FSR 2.0 Technology Coming to Microsoft Consoles
AMD FSR 2.0 technology is coming soon to Xbox consoles.
This was reported by representatives of the GPUOpen team, as well as a Microsoft employee, that is, these are not rumors. However, there are no exact dates yet.
But it is known that FSR 2.0 will appear not only on the Xbox Series, but also on the Xbox One, which may allow the latter to actually get a second life, since the console will be able to better cope with modern games.
At the same time, in the case of consoles, you need to understand that they almost always support various upscaling technologies anyway. Consoles have a very long lifespan, and their hardware must be able to handle new games years after the device’s release. As such, it’s hard to say just how much FSR 2.0 will help consoles handle modern games or higher resolutions better.
It is also worth remembering that FSR 2.0 has been integrated into Unreal Engine 4 and 5 as a plug-in, which makes it easier to integrate the technology into relevant games.
