Well-known mainboard manufacturer, Taiwanese company MSI, maker of the world’s fastest Ivy Bridge notebook that we reported about here, has just announced the new Wind Top AE2281G All-in-One (AIO) computer.
The new AIO system from MSI
is powered by a capable Intel Core i5 processor with four processing cores inside.
It features a 22" FullHD multi-touch display and a low-end Nvidia GeForce GT 630M discrete video card with 2 GB of dedicated memory.
The Core i5-3450S processor works at a frequency of 3100 MHz, but it can also reach a high 3500 MHz turbo frequency. It features the new Ivy Bridge architecture and comes with no HyperThreading technology, so the four cores will be able to handle four threads at a time.
Each processing core has its own 256 KB or level 2 cache, and all four of them share a big 6 MB level 3 cache.
The processor also features the low-performance Intel HD 2500 iGPU, so the users should be very happy that MSI
decided to include Nvidia’s GT630M card.
Having a 77 watt maximum TDP, we wouldn’t call the Core i5-3450S a cool processor, but for a desktop installation this power level should be just fine.
The system is controlled by Intel’s H61 chipset and comes with 4 GB of DDR3-1333 Mhz RAM and a 3.5” 500 GB 7200RPM HDD.
MSI also included a slim tray-loading optical disc drive and the connectivity options are quite rich, as there is a 6-in-1 card reader able to handle XD, SD, mini SD, Micro SD, MMC and MS cards.
Other connectivity options are the usual two audio jacks, four USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI-Out connector, another HDMI-In port and the LAN RJ45 connector.
A 1.3-megapixel camera and microphone are included along with a built-in Hybrid TV Tuner. WirelessN is also present, together with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
The total power draw of the system is a rather modest 150 watts, and the whole thing weighs in at 9.1 Kg, which is about 20 pounds.
Pricing information has not been made public at this time.
