MSI Trident X embraces power with Intel's 9th Gen Core i9, NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti

Hot on the heels of Intel's reveal of its new 9th Gen processors, ready to amp up its gaming lineup with the new Trident X. Like the new ASUS ROG Strix GL12CX, the MSI Trident X includes Intel's Core i9-9900K along with NVIDIA's RTX 2080 Ti graphics.

In terms of design, the Trident X stands out with a relatively compact chassis. On one side, the PC is lined with venting holes, while the other side can be equipped with a tempered glass panel for eyeing the guts of your system. The glass panel is also hinged, so you can swing it out to perform upgrades with relative ease.

MSI is also talking up its "Silent Storm" cooling tech. "The system utilizes three separate airflows to individually cool different components within the Trident X while it is under heavy load," MSI says. "That allows the desktop to perform as optimally as possible, making the Trident X ideal for AAA games, live streaming or intensive multitasking."

And, of course, with this being a gaming PC, there are RGB light galore.

The Trident X is expected to launch in November starting at $2,300. For now, you can check out more about the PC at MSI now.
