MSI is prioritising flexibility with its new gaming PC

MSI has made an exciting range of new announcements, with the most eye-catching being a bigger, mid-tower gaming PC.
 
Ahead of Computex 2017, the Infinite A will be a fairly large departure from the rest of MSI’s portfolio. The company is mainly known for smaller PC builds like the Cubi or Trident 3.
 
Most importantly, it looks like MSI is being flexible with the Infinite A in terms of upgradability. Users can beef up their rig with 64GB of DDR4 RAM, one M.2 SSD, three 2.5-inch drives and two more full-size drives.

Clearly, the firm looks to be trying to live up to its ambitions of satisfying “gamers who have a never-ending desire to game and want infinite possibilities to play the way they want.”

Housed in MSI’s Silent Storm Cooling 3 thermal design, the new desktop can also be expanded to include the very capable Intel Core i7-7700 processor and a high-end Nvidia GTX 1080 GPU with 8GB of GDDR5X VRAM.
 
It’s going to look stylish too; partial RGB LED lighting on the front of the unit should look particularly flash, with a transparent side panel adding to the slick design.
 
Intel adherents will be able to get MSI’s own updated Z270 motherboard, whereas AMD-lovers can grab a version of the Infinite A with a new X370.

Pricing is currently unknown, but judging from previous MSI offerings, we reckon there will be a barebones launch with more powerful configurations at a variety of prices.
