"Using the LED dial on the front of the machine, players can view their display system status and quickly switch between several system performance settings including sound and lighting, all customizable on MSI’s Dragon Center system management software," said MSI.

Its integrated AI technology can also detect its current location to display local weather and temperature information on the LED panel."
MSI's Silent Storm Cooling 4 technology provides separate cooling chambers for the CPU, GPU, PSU and VRM, maintaining the system at high performance for longer. Unlike other desktops, MEG Aegis Ti5's motherboard features an upside down design with an MSI propeller fan behind it to cool the VRM and boost GeForce RTX 3080's performance.
The build includes Thunderbolt 3 and Wi-Fi 6 for easy connectivity. Boasting the latest connectivity, the desktop includes built-in Thunderbolt™ 3 for transfer rates of up to 40Gb/s, four times faster than USB and ideal for quickly accessing game log files. Further enhancing online gameplay, MEG Aegis Ti5 features 2.5G LAN and Wi-Fi 6 for a stronger network connection without delays. Helping gamers communicate during online play, the desktop includes MSI's Sound Tune noise cancelling technology. Using AI, Sound Tune distinguishes between the players' voices and background noise to filter out any unwanted noise.
This thing is packed full of great hardware, but that price tag is nothing to scoff at. However, if you happen to be in the market for an ultra-powerful pre-built and have a few grand to spare, the MEG Aegis Ti5 might be worth a look.
