MSI’s Vortex is a cylindrical tower that houses a powerful PC

MSI Vortex

MSI has launched the Vortex, an unconventional gaming PC that looks like a glossy variant of the Mac Pro. The overclocking-focused hardware housed inside the chassis is cooled by two fans, one located at the bottom and the other being a top-mounted exhaust fan.

Inside, you’ll find an Intel Core i7-6700K CPU clocked to 4GHz, dual GTX 980M GPUs with fully enabled GM204 silicon, 8GB of GDDR5 memory and 2048 CUDA cores. You can install up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, with the enclosure not exceeding 37dB under load.

MSI has also mentioned that it will offer a more budget-friendly configuration feature a Core i5 CPU and dual GTX 960M cards, which will retail for $2,000. The high-end machine with the dual 980s will set you back to the tune of $4,000. Both machines will make their debut sometime in the second quarter of 2016.
