MSI Trident 3 overview

  • 1Description

The Trident 3 Desktop Computer from MSI is a portable VR-ready desktop computer with a compact footprint that's designed with the performance and aesthetics for gamers. Specs-wise, it's powered by a 3.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8700 6-core processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 256GB M.2 SSD + 1TB HDD, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM. Thanks to its dedicated GPU, you'll be able to play graphically demanding games at high resolutions.

If you need more space, you can attach external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports, one of which feature Super Charger 2 technology. Connect to the internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or with Gigabit Ethernet for a more stable and reliable wired connection. You can also pair compatible wireless peripherals with Bluetooth 4.2 to free up its USB ports for more important devices. Moreover, it has multiple video ports including HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI-D for multi-monitor setups. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.

This system comes with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-series graphics card, which is ready for VR applications and games. Furthermore, it has a front HDMI VR Link port for easy connectivity.
MSI Mystic Light
The Trident features MSI Mystic Light RGB LED lighting, which supports a variety of colors and effects to choose from. You can also sync it with other compatible lighting products to complete your build's aesthetics.
Depending on where and how much room you have, the Trident 3 can be placed horizontally or vertically with the included stand for a space-saving solution.
Easy Upgrades
After removing the side panel, the interior of the Trident 3 is easily accessible for system upgrades.
Silent Storm Cooling
MSI's Silent Storm Cooling design is configured with separate hardware chambers to quietly and efficiently cool all the components. Moreover, the included CPU cooler features an enhanced design to increase pressure area, heat transfer, and airflow for better cooling.
The Trident 3 comes with Audio Boost 3 and Nahimic 3 audio enhancements to deliver quality audio. Audio Boost 3 utilizes multiple hardware additions to deliver crisp audio, especially for headset users. Meanwhile, Nahimic 3 offers 3D surround sound and further control of your audio with different profiles.
MSI Gaming Center
MSI Gaming Center is an optional software that you can use to monitor and optimize your system's health and performance. Switch through dozens of gaming profiles and settings or create your own customized profiles as needed.
Vertical Graphics Card
A vertically mounted graphics card reduces the amount of weight and stressed placed on the PCIe slot and card. This prevents GPU sag and bending, which can lead to further complications during transport.
Super Charger 2
One of the front USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports on this system features Super Charger 2 technology, which provides your connected device with faster charging.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
