MSI has released a ton of PCs over the past few weeks and months, and we’re getting two more today. This time it is not exactly about new models, but about new configurations of the Aegis RS desktop tower. The two models are exclusively available in the official MSI online shop, which the company has just launched in the USA. The company says it wants to provide its customers with an easier way to get their latest hardware, especially due to ongoing supply bottlenecks.
The two new Aegis RS configurations are not even based on the same generation. First there is that Aegis RS 10TF-214USwhich is based on the 10th generation model. It comes with an Intel Core i7-10700K CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti for the graphics. Although the CPU is older, this is actually the high-end model that hits the market today. It has 32 GB DDR4 RAM with a clock rate of 3000 MHz and 4 TB memory. This is ensured by a 2 TB NVMe SSD and another 2 TB HDD with 7200 rpm.
That should give you a lot of room for games and a lot of power to run them. The Intel CPU may not be the newest, but you certainly can’t beg for more performance. Especially in combination with a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. This configuration is available for 3,299 US dollars in the MSI online shop.
As for the other configuration, this is the MSI Aegis RS 11TE-219US, and that’s based on the 11th generation model. It contains an Intel Core i7-11700K processor as well as an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU. It also comes with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and a total of 2 TB of storage – a 1 TB NVMe SSD and a 1 TB HDD at 7200 rpm. This configuration costs US $ 2,199 in the MSI online shop, so it’s a little cheaper.
Both models have the same MSI Z490 motherboard and an AiO liquid cooler for the CPU. Like most desktops, they can easily be upgraded later when you can find the appropriate components. Of course, it wouldn’t be a gaming PC without loads of RGB, so there is. There’s even a button on the chassis to quickly switch between lighting patterns.
If you aren’t interested in either, MSI also has many existing models in its online store, and you may find them easier to find there than other retailers.
