The Taiwanese hardware maker rolled out more hardware for the trade show on top of what they had already unveiled prior to the event, including new laptops, graphics cards, desktops and monitors.

Here are the top announcements:

MSI's refresh of the Prestige 16 boasts an ultra-lightweight design, highlighted by a magnesium-aluminium alloy chassis that weighs only 1.5kg. The laptop's form factor, however, doesn't come at the expense of performance, with it housing the latest Intel Core processor and touting Intel Evo certification. It also comes in a Studio-certified version with GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs.

The Commercial 14, meanwhile, is an enterprise laptop that comes with two optional features to choose from: NFC (Near-field communication) data transfer capabilities or a built-in smart card reader. Both features should provide another layer of identity authentication. The laptop also supports MSI's commitment to sustainability, being made of a recycled material called "PCR" and shipping in packaging that's over 90% recycled paper.

MSI GeForce RTX 4060 Ti Gaming and Ventus Series Graphics Cards

MSI's new GeForce RTX 4060 Ti Gaming series of graphics cards, the Gaming Trio and Gaming, sports a new yet familiar look while maintaining the same balance between performance, cooling and low noise of previous releases. The Torx Fan 5.0 design features pairs of three fan blades bound together with an outer link to create a rim that focuses airflow into the updated Tri Frozr 3 and Twin Frozr 9 cooling system. The card itself is also reinforced by a brushed-metal backplate and illuminated by MSI's Mystic Light RGB lighting system.

The Ventus series, on the other hand, provides more affordable options, maximising the performance relative to the price. The Ventus 3X and Ventus 2X Black both sport the Spartan design philosophy and come with Torx Fan 4.0 cooling solution. The two are also protected by a reinforcing backplate and flaunt a well-rounded aesthetic.

MSI's Intel Z790 Max series of motherboards feature upgrades to the overall design, along with support for Wi-Fi 7 connectivity and some models would even include a 5GbE LAN network solution. They'll also boast a USB 4 100W expansion card, which allows the motherboard to support dual USB 4.0 40Gb/s Type-C ports with ultra-high transfer rates and up to 100W fast charging.

Meanwhile, the B650M Project Zero is a unique motherboard that moves the power and fan interfaces, among other connectors, to the back of the board. The change, as MSI touts, would allow for much simpler and more elegant cable management.
