CeBIT 2013 is in full swing this week which can mean only one thing: an abundance of new hardware to feast our eyes on. Case in point: MSI was on hand showing off their latest all-in-one gaming PC, the AG2712. The familiar-looking AIO ships with Windows 8 and your choice of a third-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 for starters.
As SlashGear notes following some hands-on time with the new system, if you’ve seen a recent MSI AIO then the AG2712 shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The chassis is constructed of various colors, shades and finishes of plastics which likely won’t win any design awards.
Instead, this AIO sets out with one goal in mind – playing games. MSI has added touchscreen support (for an added fee) and even found room for a discrete graphics card – an Nvidia GeForce GTX 670X, to be exact. The system uses THX TruStudio Pro audio processing and MSI was even kind enough to include built-in Wi-Fi.
The left side of the display is home to the system’s power and control buttons, LED indicators, two USB 3.0 ports and a memory card reader. Along the back we find two additional USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, audio in / out, an Ethernet jack and a VGA out port. We are also told the system includes two HDMI ports – on in and one out. On the right side is an optical drive in the event that you still need to load data from a disc or want to watch a DVD.
MSI hasn’t released price points for the AG2712 just yet but given its list of hardware and position, let’s keep our fingers crossed that it's priced competitively whenever it launches.
