MSI X Plus 9th Overview

The Trident X Plus Gaming Desktop from MSI is a compact and portable system designed with the performance aesthetics for gamers. Specs-wise, it's powered by a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9-9900KF eight-core processor, 16GB of DDR4 memory, a single 1TB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD, and an MSI GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card. Thanks to its dedicated GPU, you'll be able to play graphically demanding games at high resolutions. If you need more space, you can attach external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports. Connect to the internet via 802.11ax Wi-Fi or with Gigabit Ethernet for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Moreover, it has multiple HDMI and DisplayPort connectors for multi-monitor setups. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Pro.


MSI systems are built with actual MSI components that you'd find online or in stores. This Trident X system is built with an MSI Z390i Gaming Edge AC motherboard and an MSI GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card.

Compact Gaming

With a compact 10L chassis, the Trident X Plus uses an SFX power supply, but still packs powerful hardware. It features a vertical GPU design to prevent the card from bending or the PCIe from being damaged during transport. Additionally, parts are easily accessible by removing the two side panels.

Silent Storm 3

The Silent Storm 3 cooling system utilizes a dual-chamber design that splits the CPU, GPU, and PSU for a more optimized airflow.

MSI Mystic Light

The Trident features MSI Mystic Light RGB LED lighting, which supports a variety of colors and effects to choose from. You can also sync it with other compatible lighting products to complete your build's aesthetics.

Windows 10 Pro

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.


Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Additional Windows 10 Pro Features

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
