Inside, MSI’s new MAG Trident S 5M mini PC packs an AMD Ryzen 5000G-series APU, up to 64GB of RAM, and up to 4K 120FPS gaming…all in an Xbox Series-sized enclosure X. MSI also includes its Android emulator app – MSI App Player – giving you a free 30-day XBOX GAME PASS ULTIMATE, accessible through MSI Game Studio software.

MSI’s APP Player allows you to emulate an Android OS in your Windows OS, giving you the ability to have a completely different experience with the MAG Trident S 5M Mini PC. On one side it’s an SFF gaming PC with Windows – on the other side you have access to the Android app and a “joystick mode” – giving you great mobile gaming on the couch.

The new MSI MAG Trident S 5M mini PC packs an AMD Ryzen 5700G APU with 8 cores and 16 threads, along with 2 PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 SSD slots and a 2.5-inch slot for storage. The components are actually upgradeable, with a quick motherboard slot actually being such a good idea.

When it comes to connectivity, a massive fail here is the lack of HDMI 2.1 connectivity – which gives you 4K 120FPS to your gaming TV – instead you have DisplayPort 1.4, driving 4K 120FPS. That’s a huge oversight, but MSI isn’t alone in this… ASUS launched several new gaming monitors in 2022 with HDMI 2.0, which isn’t just a shame, it’s a huge mistake .

MSI’s new MAG Trident S 5M Mini PC is available now, but check your region for specific pricing.
