MSI reveals what it describes as the world’s smallest VR Ready Gaming PC.

Global computer hardware manufacturer MSI has recently revealed another addition to their VR and Gaming optimized products, the Trident, which they describe as the “Smallest VR Ready Gaming PC” run by an Intel Skylake CPU and a GTX GeForce 1060 Graphics Card, all inside a frame no larger than your present day console.

Sitting at 4.7 liters, it is comparably smaller than your typical mid-tower PC system case, as it stands at about 13 inches vertically, compared to a mid-tower which is 18 inches high. The components are obviously tightly packed, with the single fan GPU appears to be sitting really just right next to the processor, however, MSI still assures temperature and noise control by employing their very own Silent Storm Cooling Tech.

The MSI Trident, with its Intel i7, Intel i5, and GTX GeFroce 1060 3G and 6G variants will be made available worldwide sometime later this November 2016.
