CES is a popular gathering place for those who thrive on the best in consumer technology. The products showcased here span over 20 categories, from gaming to smart homes.
MSI's quest for constant innovation grabbed the limelight at CES 2020 once again, just like every year of the past decade. With multiple products winning CES innovation award honors across several categories, we have an exciting lineup of products to show you all on our 10th anniversary at CES!
Optix MEG381CQR Smart Gaming Monitor: Smarts, Visuals – Single Package
Double CES Innovation Honors: Computer Peripherals & Accessories; Smart Home
MSI takes smart technology a step further to enhance the gaming experience. However, at its core, the Optix MEG381CQR is first-and-foremost, a great gaming monitor. It comes with a 38” curved IPS display with an ultra-wide 21:9 resolution of 3840x1600. Its brilliant panel is perfect for gamers who adore both visual quality and great colors.
Here's where it gets interesting, though! The Optix MEG381CQR comes equipped with the latest MSI HMI (Human Machine Interface) technology – an interface that allows machines and humans to interact.
A second, built-in OLED display grants gamers access to critical information about their games. From in-game health bars to the weather outside, the possibilities are limitless. An integrated front camera helps keep eye health in check by actively reducing brightness during long gaming sessions. The innovative control dial on the monitor grants access to system functionality and allows you to tweak even system settings on the fly.
Five integrated RGB sections on the Optix MEG381CQR Smart Gaming Monitor support SteelSeries GameSense to improve immersion like never before. Once connected to popular games like Dota 2, CS:GO, the RGB sections light up to indicate in-game information like health bars, mana bars, ammo counts, etc.
Optix MAG161 Monitor: World's Slimmest Portable Monitor
CES Innovation Award: Computer Peripherals & Accessories
Coming in at just 2lbs, the 15.6” Optix MAG161 Monitor is the world's slimmest portable monitor with a width of only 5mm. You might expect this compact form factor to come with compromises. But thanks to MSI's quest for constant innovation, the MAG161 monitor isn’t just small and slim enough to fit into your backpack, but it also doesn't compromise on performance. It features an excellent IPS panel with a whopping 240 Hz refresh rate and FreeSync support. That's right. It's a portable, 240Hz FreeSync IPS monitor!
The MAG161 comes equipped with two input options – HDMI and USB Type-C, to support the most devices without needing adapters.
The monitor is built to gaming standards with a 240 Hz refresh rate and a Full HD resolution, making it an ideal product for those who want to play games on the go without compromising on their gaming experience. While its high refresh rate would appeal to gamers, the IPS panel's excellent color accuracy and wide viewing angles are perfect for those who want to consume high-quality media or even get some work done.
That's not all. Even though the MAG161 Portable Monitor is quite slim and light, it still houses two speakers – making it the ultimate entertainment solution that you can carry around even in a small backpack or in your hand.

It is armed with a top-of-the-line MSI RTX 2080Ti graphics card and the latest 9th Generation Intel CPUs – ensuring the best gaming experience possible, with stable and high frame rates.
MSI separates the hottest components of the desktop to enhance and direct airflow better. Hence, even when you’re pushing the system to the limit, temperatures will remain at safe levels – another piece of information that you can easily see on the Aegis Ti5's front OLED display.
Prestige P100 Workstation:
CES Innovation Honor Category: Computer Hardware & Components
Although the Prestige P100 workstation's clean lines and sleek looks might not immediately scream power and performance, it’s packed chock-full of compelling hardware that will help content creators focus on what's important – creativity.
With top-end hardware from Intel and Nvidia like the 9th Generation 9900K processor and an RTX 2080Ti graphics card, creators are guaranteed to get snappy viewport performance that will outpace anything out there. What's more, it will reduce waiting times on things that take time like video exports and CPU/GPU rendering.
MSI's novel thermal solution helps cool this powerful hardware by providing independent airflow to the power supply, processor, and graphics card – allowing for this sleek, compact design, which imparts a quiet elegance to it. It turns heads, lets creators get work done faster, and enhances the aesthetics of workspaces with its mere presence.
