Computex is a time where companies show off much of what's in store for the coming year, and MSI is certainly no exception to that. The company has a little bit of everything it's showing at Computex this year, so let's dive right in to see what it has to offer. MSI has its GT72 gaming laptop on display, which features NVIDIA G-SYNC as well as eye-tracking technology for better immersion. The eye-tracking technology comes by way of a partnership with Tobii Technology and will have a live demo of how it works. Hardware-wise, the GT72 features a GTX 980M GPU with 8GB GDDR5 and a 17.3-inch screen. The GT80 laptop has an 18.4-inch screen, an Intel Core i7 CPU, GTX 980M GPUs in SLI, and a full-size mechanical keyboard. Dropping down a little bit, we get the GS60/70 and GE62/72 laptops, which feature Nahimic audio performance technology to enhance your soundscape and deliver 7.1 virtual surround through stereo speakers. The Prestige laptops feature GTX 950M/960M GPUs and MSI True Color Technology to deliver 100% of the sRGB spectrum.

When we get away from the laptop side of things, we end up on the desktop and all-in-one area. The Nightblade MI is something MSI calls a "lean, mean, gaming machine," as its a smaller variant of the Nightblade PC, but still manages to fit in the latest Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce video card. For all-in-one PCs, MSI has two different models: the MSI Gaming 24GE 4K and the AG270 2QC 3K. The 24GE 4K features a 24" 4K screen, an Intel Core i7 CPU, a GTX 960M GPU, and Nahimic Audio Enhancer to deliver a machine primed for 4K gaming or video editing, among others. The AG270 2QC 3K features a 2560x1440 screen, an Intel Core i7 CPU, GTX 970M graphics, and Yamaha speakers to get you into your games.

Of course, MSI also has some video cards and motherboards it's introducing at Computex, so don't feel like it's all about laptops and PCs. The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti gets the MSI treatment with the Twin Frozr V-equipped GTX 980 Ti GAMING 6G. That new cooler features dual fans, an LED MSI GAMING Dragon that is controlled via the MSI Gaming App for some sweet case visuals, and cool and quiet gaming performance. There's also the GTX 980 GAMING 4G video card, which also gets the Twin Frozr V cooler, and both it and GTX 980 Ti GAMING 6G card get a backplate with a dragon motif. MSI also has a pair of SLI Bridges for 2-Way or 3-Way setups that features a backlit MSI GAMING shield and a refined look for an SLI setup.

For motherboards, MSI is showing off the X99A GAMING GODLIKE motherboard, which is the first motherboard to feature RGB LEDs for some amazing visual customization. Controlled by the Mystic Light app, more than 2,000 colors are possible with it, so whatever strikes your fancy is possible. The motherboard also features Audio Boost 3 PRO for crystal clear audio and lossless compression; Turbo M.2, SATA Express, and USB 3.1 for blazing fast data transfers; and the Killer DoubleShot-X3 PRO and the Killer 1535 WiFi module for Internet connectivity. MSI also has another X99 motherboard, the X99A GAMING 9 ACK, which is meant for gamers and enthusiasts desiring the best performance possible. Packing USB 3.1, a premium style, and plenty of features to make any gamer/enthusiast happy, the X99A GAMING 9 ACK could be the highlight of your Haswell-E setup. If you don't want to make quite that leap, MSI also has its Z97 and H97 line for Haswell, and with a BIOS update, the new Broadwell CPUs.

All this and more can be seen at MSI's booth at Computex, with release dates and prices expected out before long.
