MSI Modern MD242UPW - a small 4K monitor for the office.  Plus presentation of MSI MEG Trident X2 and MSI Cubi 6 1M computersPreviously, we have already discussed all MSI monitors intended for gamers, which were presented at the company’s stand at CES 2024 in Las Vegas. However, these are not all new products, as there are also proposals aimed more specifically at offices. An interesting monitor here will be the MSI Modern MD242UPW, which on the one hand is a small device, but on the other hand will offer 4K resolution. In addition, two ready-made computer sets will appear in Europe – the MSI Cubi 6 office set and the MSI MEG Trident X2 gaming set. Finally, MSI also presented the effects of cooperation with Capcom, which is related to the 20th anniversary of the Monster Hunter brand.

MSI presented four new monitors at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, intended primarily for use in offices. These are the MSI Modern MD242UPW, Modern MD273QXP, Modern MP251 and Modern PRO MP161 models – the latter is a portable monitor. In addition, several new sets of computers were shown, two of which will go to Europe: the MSI Cubi 6 office computer and the MEG Trident X2 gaming computer.

For people who prefer smaller monitors, but at the same time with a higher resolution (and therefore with a higher PPI), the manufacturer has prepared an interesting feature in the form of the Modern MD242UPW model. It offers a 23.8″ IPS display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. There is also compliance with the HDR10 standard (plus the monitor is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified) and low response time (1 ms MPRT). Among the more interesting elements of the specification, it is worth highlighting the presence of a connector USB-C with the possibility of charging with a power of up to 100 W, as well as an automatic KVM switch. Another interesting function is Eye-Q Check, which has been prepared for people with various visual impairments. The purpose of Eye-Q Check is to inform about the need to rest and move away from the screen with prolonged use.

MSI has also prepared something new for people who need to take an additional screen with them, which can be easily connected, for example, to a notebook. MSI Modern MP161 E2, as we are talking about it, offers a 15.6-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The refresh rate is standard 60 Hz, while the response time reaches 4 ms (GtG). It is also characterized by low weight of 750 grams. There are two USB-C ports available, supporting DisplayPort 1.2 and with the possibility of charging with a power of up to 15 W. The equipment is packed in a rather characteristic box that can be partially disassembled and created from cardboard elements, e.g. a stand for a smartphone. This small portable monitor also has a VESA mount on the back to mount the screen, e.g. on a separate base.

MSI Claw – a new portable game console powered by Intel Meteor Lake processors and Intel ARC Graphics systems

Another typical office monitor will be the MSI Modern MD273QXP, which this time uses a 27-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, along with a 100 Hz refresh rate. The device thus tries to maintain a balance between resolution, screen size and refresh rate. Here, too, there is a USB-C port with the ability to charge up to 100 W or the Eye-Q Check function, which we described earlier. The monitor also offers built-in speakers with a power of 3 W each (x2). MSI Modern MD273QXP has, in addition to USB-C, also full-size HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort – both in the form of an input and output port, which allows you to create configurations in the Daisy Chain format. The MSI Modern MD273QXP monitor is also equipped with a Full HD camera – this will certainly be useful, for example, during video conferencing.

When it comes to computer sets, two ready-made devices will be delivered to Europe (or have already been delivered, as is the case with the first of the discussed configurations): MSI MEG Trident X2 and MSI Cubi 6. The first one uses 14th generation Intel Core processors, with a maximum optionally with Intel Core i9-14900KF and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 graphics cards, including the flagship GeForce RTX 4090. The computer has a special touch panel on the front of the case, which allows, for example, to monitor the operating parameters of components (temperatures, clock speeds), set the OSD , modify the lighting method (Mystic Light), or automatically activate game mode. The computer is quite enclosed and we don’t have much insight into its interior. A 240 mm AiO system (water cooling) is used to cool the processor.

The second set is the MSI Cubi 6, which is the successor to the Cubi 5 model we tested not so long ago. The set, although still small, is slightly larger than its predecessor. It now uses Intel Core 100 processors from the Raptor Lake-U Refresh generation (Core 7 150U, Core 5 120U, Core 3 100U) and has a built-in Thunderbolt 4 port. The manufacturer declares that it is easy to upgrade RAM or SSD media. MSI Cubi 5 now supports DDR5 5200 MHz SO-DIMM memory, it also has two M.2 ports for SSD PCIe 4.0 and an additional 2.5″ slot for HDD or another SSD. The front of the computer offers two USB 3.2 type A Gen.2 ports , a microSD memory card reader, a 3.5 mm audio jack socket and a PC power button. On the back there are two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports (which allows you to use a total of four 4K screens at the same time), two USB 3.2 type A Gen connectors .2, two RJ-45 2.5 Gbit Ethernet network ports and a socket for a power supply. The whole capacity is less than 1 liter (0.826 liter to be precise).

The last interesting thing is the cooperation between MSI and Capcom studio. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Monster Hunter brand, the Taiwanese manufacturer has prepared a number of visually unique computer components and laptops whose appearance draws heavily from the popular game series. CES 2024 showed, among others: motherboards, monitors, laptops, ready-made computer sets and graphics cards. For Monster Hunter fans, this may be a very nice surprise, especially since the appearance of some of the components can attract attention. On the next page you will find our photo gallery from the MSI stand, where we present the monitors, desktops and components with Monster Hunter motifs.
