MSI has announced the availability of its latest compact form factor PC, the Vortex G25VR, in Malaysia. Sporting an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU in a tiny 2.5L body, it will retail for RM11,299 and is available immediately.
The MSI Vortex G25VR is a refreshed version of the original Vortex, which had a cylindrical body similar to that of the Mac Pro. However, it was a lot more powerful with up to two GTX 980 GPUs fitted inside. The Vortex G25VR dials it down a little bit, but its body is a lot smaller, with a capacity of just 2.5 liters.
Designed to look like a console, the Vortex G25VR can be placed horizontally or vertically. The Malaysian variant packs an 8th gen Intel Core i7-8700HQ processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB GDDR5 GPU, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and dual storage bays comprising a 256GB NVMe SSD and a 1TB 7200rpm hard drive.
The MSI Vortex G25VR comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home Plus, and has a two year warranty as standard. It is priced at RM11,299, and can be viewed and experienced at the MSI Concept Store in Kuala Lumpur.
