MSI Really Wants You to Create

All white motif. Optional 5k HDR 600 ultra-wide display. Pretty sure we know whose market MSI trying gain a foothold in. MSI has established themselves in the gaming laptop market for a while now. Now they are eyeing another lucrative market for content creators and designers. Price is of yet unannounced for the latest offering, the P100, but I do have to give them credit for some nice options. The “P” designates Prestige Series Desktop.

I am a fan of cases than can breathe and right away you can see that MSI has put thought into that. Only downside is that the cooling fan on the right seems to be the only one in the case. I only say “seems” because the spec and data sheet simply states fan cooler in the cooling section. It is possible that with this sideways fan and GPU mounting the case may only need the single fan. The only real other thing I see against is the max PSU offered is 650 watt. You’ll see what I mean below.

Here’s some nice options. How about an i9 9900k cpu with up to 64GB DDR4 memory? Need some GPU beefiness then throw in a MSI RTX2080TI. There’s also mixed SSD options for M.2 including PCIe and Optane. Unfortunately I think that with using a 9900k and 2080TI there should’ve been a 800-850 watt offering. The 650 watt will get the job done but probably working a little harder than it should when everything is under load. Here’s a link to the data sheet. The optional 5k display is also 100% sRGB rated. Throw in 98% DCI-P3 and things ought to look pretty nice.

The P100 is marketed as something to be customized. You can pick your options when buying but you can see with the pictures that the case does provide accessibility. There’s also their Creator OSD for managing different profiles and settings for different projects. From a sleek looking case to some powerful options the P100 checks a lot of the best things for the market it’s aimed at.

Thanks to KITGURU for mentioning this beauty.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
