More than a new generation design

MSI 12TE-1205XEN

MSI 12TE-1205XES allows easy removal of its side panel

Starting with the visual, the chassis of this PC is modernized to the maximum with a series of attractive lines that also add a polished black surface and a Mystic Light RGB LED lighting system on the front face as well as inside that allows you to customize the colors to suit each user but without standing out too much.

MSI 12TE-1205XES provides an optional dual side panel as well as transparencies to visualize the hardware components in operation , as well as a correct layout that is complemented by a liquid cooling system to maintain a constant airflow that ensures maximum performance even in demanding situations. Access is also simplified to make it easier to upgrade components in the future.

The PC has official dimensions of 195 x 514.8 x 466 mm as well as a total weight of 10 kilograms, while its physical connections include a large number of options ranging from HDMI video outputs as well as DisplayPort, Ethernet port, up to four inputs USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C, four more classic USB 2.0, USB 3.2 Gen 2 options for both Type-A and reversible C, and more.

The dream for new generation gamers

MSI 12TE-1205XEN

MSI 12TE-1205XES is one of the best proposals of the brand

You don’t have to know much to understand the power that a combination of an Intel Core i7-12700KF processor with 32 GB of DDR5 RAM can offer . Although this is not the most incredible model that the brand has for sale (for example MSI MAG Codex X5 12TE-1204XES offers an Intel Core i9 processor), it is enough even for very demanding users in their work or professional needs.

With a storage space of 2 TB in PCIe GEN4x4 NVMe M.2 SSD format there will be room for a good number of AAA games installed simultaneously, while the presence of an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 LHR VENTUS 3X graphics card with 10 GB DDR6 dedicated it means the possibility of reaching maximum graphics settings in new games with a stable UHD resolution at 60fps and even ray tracing effects enabled.

To conclude, it should be mentioned that the computer comes with an 850W ATX power supply and does not include a factory-installed operating system , so some initial time will have to be taken before you can start using it at its full capacity.

  • Modern design with quality materials
  • Capable of gaming at 4K in the highest quality
  • Plenty of available internal SSD storage space
  • Large number of connections available
  • very high price
