MSI has a new flagship PC that is absolutely gorgeous

A graphic showing the MSI Vision Elite desktop.

MSI first showcased its range of new prebuilt gaming desktop towers earlier this year, and now the entire range is available for purchase. The company’s flagship offering, the Vision Elite, packs top-of-the-line specs including Intel’s latest 14th-gen Core i9 desktop processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090.

The PC uses the recently released MEG Maestro 700L PZ cabinet, which is the star of the show. It features a unibody aluminum construction and a one-piece, 270-degree tempered glass that offers a panoramic view of the components inside.

MSI isn’t the only company to use this type of curved glass in a PC case, but it’s definitely the first prebuilt PC to be sold with the premium look. It’s pretty gorgeous if you ask me.

Cooling the Core i9-14900KF is a 360mm liquid AIO cooler, and the system comes with 64GB (32GBx2) of 5600MHz DDR5 memory, a 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD, an MSI Z790 motherboard, and a 1000-watt power supply unit. There’s 2.5 gigabit Ethernet, Intel Wi-Fi 7, and Bluetooth 5.4 for connectivity.

Essentially, the system should be able to handle all the latest AAA gaming titles at 4K resolution without breaking a sweat. MSI is selling only one configuration of this beast and it’s priced at $4,300.

The company is also launching a new range of Assembled in America prebuilt desktops with the latest 14th-gen processors from Intel and Nvidia RTX 40-series graphics cards. The Infinite series offers equally powerful hardware, but at a lower range.

This one features a traditional tower case called the MEG Prospect 700R that offers support for up to 10 cooling fans and a dedicated space to install EK’s custom distro plate for custom watercooling. The Infinite prebuilt desktop will be available with similar specs as the Vision Elite, with the option of a liquid-cooled RTX 4090. Pricing starts at $3,600.

Going down the line, we have the Aegis and Codex series, which are also getting the latest chips from Intel and Nvidia. With prices starting at $1,900, the Aegis series will be offered with distinct faceplates that include mesh-like designs, as well as venting through the aluminum side panel to improve airflow. The Codex series is also refreshed with two new chassis options that are focused on offering improved airflow. Prices for the Codex series start at $980.

MSI has listed all of its new desktop towers with various configurations on its website. There is also a special offer where MSI is bundling the upcoming Star Wars Outlaws video game with select products powered by Intel’s 14th-gen processors.

Intel’s upcoming 14th-gen desktop processors are expected to be a minor refresh, which is a bit of a disappointment. On the other hand, the mobile series is shaping up to be quite exciting. During this year’s Hot Chips conference at Stanford University, Intel executives confirmed that the upcoming 14th-gen Meteor Lake series will be driven by AI.

Meteor Lake chips will be able to make use of AI to manage power and the transition between active and low-power states, as per information shared by PCWorld. The company is calling it the “Intel Energy Efficiency Architecture” and the AI-based power scheme can be expected to make its way into future products, including its upcoming client processors.

Intel’s next-gen desktop CPUs are just around the corner, which means that we can expect even more leaks to make rounds on the internet. The latest one gives us an indication of what kind of pricing we can expect from the upcoming Raptor Lake Refresh.

As per a tweet shared by @momomo_us, Intel’s 14th-gen CPUs will be priced higher than the current crop of 13th-gen desktop processors. Notably, all the prices shared (in what seems to be a screenshot from a retail store webpage) are for the K-variants, which usually entice enthusiast and gaming consumers. The top-tier Core i9-14900K is set for a price increase of $95 compared to the 13900K, which was already an expensive chip at $600 during launch. The Core i7-14700K could carry a price of $485, while the most affordable overclockable desktop chip, the Core i5-14600KF, will be available for $345.

We know at this point that Intel doesn't intend to release an entirely new generation for its desktop CPUs this year. The aptly named Raptor Lake refresh is rumored to launch next month at Intel Innovation, but a new leak suggests Intel may not have much to share on the desktop front.
