Tiny size, top speed: this is the compact PC you’ve been waiting for


Ever wanted a PC that’s geared to the teeth with desktop-grade PC power, but compact enough to fit right into your home entertainment setup? Meet the MSI Trident X and Trident X Plus – the world’s smallest gaming desktops that boast the latest 9th-Gen Intel Core processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics.

At just a fraction over 10 litres in size, the MSI Trident X and Trident X Plus gaming desktops are incredible little units that punch well above their weight. MSI has managed to cram in all the good stuff you’d expect to see from even the most powerful of PCs. That means under the hood you’ll find up to a Core i9-9900K Intel processor with GeForce RTX 2080 Ti desktop graphics, accompanied with up to 32GB of blazing-fast DDR4 memory. The Trident X's compact size doesn’t impact storage here either, as there's enough space to fit two 2.5-inch SSDs or hard drives, along with up to two high-speed PCIe M.2 SSDs.

Whether you’re gaming, streaming or content creating, MSI Trident X desktops have you covered. You’ll find tons of I/O connectivity and expertly engineered cooling performance that’s also quiet, all beautifully wrapped up in a sharp, stealth-like design. The Trident X and X Plus give you the very same robust flexibility and renowned MSI build quality that makes PCs so great, all in a tiny footprint. Once you've owned one, you’ll find yourself asking why you ever used to have a bulky PC case taking up all that space under your desk.

If packing one of the world’s fastest graphics cards for gaming wasn’t enough, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that MSI has thought about the ability to upgrade your system down the line too – a feature that’s frequently overlooked on compact desktops like this. With a flick of the wrist, you can open up the stunning tempered-glass side panel (included as standard) and access all your important hardware – giving you direct access to your graphics card, storage, memory and more. What’s more, everything inside is desktop-grade hardware, making upgrading as easy as it gets. It’s a thoughtful bit of design that gives you confidence in knowing you’re not locked in to the stock configuration. Performance and upgradability is the name of the game here.

The Trident X series gives you the freedom to upgrade internal components any time you desire.

Peak performance & considered design

The Trident X desktops achieve gaming framerates that will blow your expectations away. With extreme performance at the heart of their DNA, you can dial your graphics settings up to the maximum in-game without worries. Sit back and enjoy incredibly crisp 4K gaming without the lag, or power through rendering workloads faster than ever before. Special attention has also been given to the audio, with shockingly-good 7.1 channel HD output that’s driven through finely calibrated Nahimic 3 audio enhancement. Topping it all off is the inclusion of refined RGB lighting, which gives your Trident X a subtle touch of personality – and it's fully customisable through the award winning Mystic Light software suite. Also included in the box is a set of interchangeable side panels, giving you the option of installing tempered glass to showcase your hardware, or alternatively, a more traditional and discrete black finish.

Every inch of the Trident X has been taken into careful consideration, and is purposefully designed and built for a reason. You’ll find a cleverly-engineered chamber system inside, which gives key components such as the graphics card, CPU and power supply direct access to airflow, allowing everything to stay cool and quiet. Just as importantly, hot air is exhausted out of the system's custom-designed ventilation zones, helping to push performance further and avoid throttling. This leaves you with a powerhouse gaming PC that’s space efficiency leaves traditional computers in the dust. It’s truly expert level design and craftsmanship from top to bottom.
