MSI, prominent developer in gaming technology, is once again leading the way by releasing the new AG220 and AG240 as the successors to its AG2712A that won the CES Innovation Award this year. The AG220 and AG240 are 21.5″ and 23.6″ Full HD All-in-One PCs that support MSI’s industry-leading Anti-Flicker and Less Blue Light technologies. Both AG220 and AG240 come with touch and non-touch displays and are based on Intel’s latest Haswell platform with support for quad-core processors. The PCs also feature NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTX 860M gamer-grade discrete graphics card and Killer game networking accelerator favored by professional gamers. Additionally, they come with speakers by Yamaha and the all new Headset Master technology to easily switch between headset and speaker audio output.
Both models will become generally available per 18th of March 2014.
Amazing visuals with the latest NVIDIA GTX860M discrete graphics
MSI is the first computer manufacturer in the world to develop All-in-One PCs designed for e-Sports. It is not easy to pack a high-performance graphics card into the limited space of a highly-integrated All-in-One PC. The AG220 and AG240 are the first to introduce the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M discrete graphics card with up to 2GB of GDDR5 RAM and full DirectX 11 support. Players will be able to enjoy perfect lagfree visuals in both single-player and online multi player mode.
Innovative display technologies to shield gamers’ eyes
To provide gamers with an even better gaming environment, MSI introduces an anti-glare matte display on its All-in-One PCs. At a LAN event with serious glare issues or Internet cafes, the anti-glare protection guards the user’s eyes against glare from the computer screen. The AG220 and AG240 are also the first in the industry to feature MSI Anti-Flicker technology, which stabilizes the electrical current to prevent serious flickering seen in standard displays. Under any setting, the technology also reduces eye fatigue after extended use while also enhancing the quality of the gaming environment
Creative Sound Blaster and Headset Master audio solutions
The MSI AG220 and AG240 are equipped with the latest Creative’s Sound Blaster sound technology that optimizes voice and surround sound effects for watching movies, listening to songs or gaming. Additionally the user can now easily switch between audio coming from their gaming headset or the dedicated speakers by Yamaha with MSI’s own Headset Master.
Gamer grade networking environment with Killer
The network environment is crucial to taking out enemies quickly and accurately in online games. The AG220 and AG240 support the Killer network accelerator that optimizes network packet priority to greatly reduce the latency of online game data-streams. Killer LAN can also optimize the streaming of online videos, allowing users to enjoy even smoother high-quality video streams on websites such as YouTube.
MSI Super RAID 2 with Plextor True Speed Technology (optional)
Apart from the graphics card and network card, the best way to boost gaming performance lies in storage. AG220 and AG240 support up to three mSATA SSD that can be configured in RAID 0 for read speeds up to 1500MB/sec, taking gaming loading times to a new level. MSI partnered with Plextor to provide mSATA SSD optimized for MSI All-in-One PCs. Plextor’s True Speed technology delivers the most stable long-term read/write performance to eliminate the drop in read/write speeds experienced by SSDs after long use.
