When it comes to computers and gaming, Computex is the place to be, as this is where the biggest innovations are presented. L&B Tech Reviews has travelled all the way to Taipei in Taiwan to see and experience the new products at home.
At MSI’s stand, one of the first things that greeted us was actually a German-designed machine!
The MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes-AMG Motorsport is the result of a new collaboration between Taiwanese MSI and German Mercedes-AMG. The limited edition laptop features a magnesium-aluminium alloy casing in a muted selenite grey. The symbolic language is so clear that even automotive illiterates will recognise it.
Mercedes AMG is responsible for the design, while the engine itself is developed by MSI. This is a combination of an Intel Core i9 processor and an Nvidia RTX 40 graphics card. The screen has an exceptionally high resolution for gaming, with a 4K OLED in 16:10 format.
Another novelty was the MSI Raider GE78HX, which is equipped with a so-called Smart Touchpad, which is invisibly moulded into the chassis and capable of changing size. On other invisible touchpads, it is often difficult to find out where to right-click, but here it was cleverly solved with markings on the surface. Furthermore, the haptic feedback with a piezo element provided a natural clicking sensation, even though the metal surface itself does not move.
MSI also brought along a new generation of the Titan laptop, which is their “everything from the top shelf” model. Naturally with an i9 processor, Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics and a mechanical keyboard, so no expense has been spared. In the rather noisy exhibition hall, we couldn’t hear the four fans that cool the Titan, but they do make some noise.
