MSI - MEG Aegis Ti5 - Gaming Desktop

In the 30 years’ history of COMPUTEX, 2021 marked a significant difference in that it is the first online only version of COMPUTEX. However, there are many mainstay events that remain active in the show despite the online format. One of them is the Best Choice Award whose winners were announced on July 30 with a total of 19 winners; a number that coincided with its 19th edition in 2021.

The highest honor in Best Choice Award is the Best Choice of the Year which will have to fulfill or even surpass the jury panels’ expectation in the spirit of solving users’ pain points in digital transformation and improving their operational efficiency. The winners will also have to excel in the evaluation processes of document review, product presentation, and panel discussion. The three processes are used to maintain fairness and credibility of the judges, their rulings, and the award itself.

This year, the winner of the prestigious award is the MSI MEG Aegis Ti5. One of the world’s leading manufacturers of gaming hardware, MSI has participated and won the Best Choice Award several times with multiple products of different hardware types. This year, the product that won the Best Choice of the Year is a gaming CPU, the MEG Aegis Ti5.

The MEG Aegis Ti5 has been praised for its unique futuristic design as well as for having the world’s first HMI (Human Machine Interface) Gaming Dial design. This groundbreaking feature allows users to adjust gaming performance and supervise system statistics in the display panel. Users will be able to switch to different operational modes depending on their current use purpose to get the optimal performance and better machine efficiency.

The CPU that resembles futuristic supercars is equipped with the latest Intel Core i9K series processors and GeForce RTX 30 series GPU. The high specifications allow users to run the most hardware intensive apps and programs smoothly in high resolution without sacrificing performance. To provide optimum cooling, the MEG Aegis Ti5 design separates the hottest components: CPU, VGA, PSU, and VRM to prevent heat transfer in between them and ensure high performance for longer without any lags, screen splitting, or other similar issues. This design is then further enhanced with MSI’s exclusive 4th generation Silent Storm Cooling system as well as an independent cold chamber cooling system to prevent overheating and system failure due to heat.

Preparing for future updates, the MEG Aegis Ti5 is easily upgraded by replacing memories, adding extra RAM, changing GPUs, etc. This means users can use the CPU for longer and replace only certain parts/ components instead of having to buy a whole new pre-built unit.

The panel of judges listed the following reasons for why the MEG Aegis Ti5 won the Best Choice of the Year:

  1. Uses an exclusively developed 4th gen. Silent Storm Cooling system and independent cold chamber cooling design. Pairing Thunderbolt 4 and 2.5G with a WiFi 6E transmission for a lag-free gaming experience.
  2. Uniquely futuristic design equipped with an Intel Core i9-11900K processor. With a clock speed reaching 5.3GHz, multitasking is a breeze.
  3. Jump right into a game with the never-before-seen gaming dial. System functions can be changed via the gaming dial, allowing gamers to freely switch between settings.

In addition to winning Best Choice of the Year with the MEG Aegis Ti5, MSI also won a Category Award with the Creator P50 Content Creation Desktop. Both products focus on different market niches with different specifications and capabilities.

On winning the 2 awards, Sam Chern, MSI’s Vice President of Marketing commented, ”Thank you very much COMPUTEX for the Best Choice Awards! The gaming desktop MEG Aegis Ti5 is a masterpiece with MSI's cutting-edge technologies, feedbacks from professional gamers, teams and excellent aesthetic design.
