Today on my desk I have yet another first for Play3r and again its come from MSI, an All-in-One system. As some of you may be aware, this is the first time that we have had to test an All-in-One, and its caused quite a stir. This particular All-in one we have today is from the MSI Gaming series, more specifically the AG2712A. Designed to be a compact but powerful PC capable of handling everything that you could throw at it, the MSI AG2712A certainly has the credentials on paper to really handle that claim with a powerful i7 processor and AMD’s latest 8970m GPU and a large, attractive 27 inch touch screen. However, because space is a premium these are laptop components, which we all know are down on overall power compared to their full-size, desktop brethren. This does pose some interesting testing though, as it will be nice to see whether being hooked up to a power supply will boost the performance of these components. As we all know what is on paper does not always translate into real world performance. Time to see of the AG2712A will carry forward the magnificent performance that we have see with MSI’s Gaming Series or if its compact design and possible cooling issues will hamper its performance. Let’s find out, starting with a little bit about MSI…
