Product Overview

MSI MPG Trident A 10th and Trident AS 10th RTX 30 series are compact gaming desktop computers powered by up to Intel 10th-gen Comet Lake i7-10700 processor and RTX 3070 graphics.
Like the RTX 2070-powered version of the Trident A / AS 10th, the RTX 30 series versions use the Intel B460 chipset with limited expandability. Still, DDR4-2933 memories are now supported.
These compact gaming desktops feature 2.5G LAN and the latest WiFi 6 for connected gaming. Like other MSI gaming desktops, they support Mystic Light LED RGB lighting effect.
The two differ in that the Trident AS version comes with interchangeable black side panels and tempered glass panels.

The MSI Trident A is one of the best small-form-factor gaming PCs on the market. It’s cleverly designed for easier internal access and cool, quiet operation.

The specification is rounded out by Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band 802.11ac wireless.
