Key Features

Get Best Framerates with FidelityFX Super Resolution

The new MSI MAG META 5 5E comes with AMD Fidelity FX Super Resolution(FSR). This technology utilizes spatial upscaling technology that can easily boost the framerates during gaming.

As a result, users get to play their games in the best quality and high resolution which contributes to a fantastic and immersive gaming experience. Because this technology is GPU agnostic, it can work seamlessly with any GPU out there.

As of now, there are not a lot of games that support FSR but with time and the rising popularity of the technology, more games will be supporting it in the future. And with four quality settings options, users can easily adjust the balance between quality and performance.

AMD’s Smart Access Memory Unlocks Full VRAM Capacity

Another unique feature of the new MSI MAG META 5 5E is the AMD SMART ACCESS MEMORY. This technology from AMD truly unlocks the true performance capabilities of the VRAM on the graphics card.

As per MSI, this feature alone can boost the gaming performance by 15% if combined with an AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processor. Not only that, but it also supports some select processors from the AMD Ryzen 300 Series combined with an AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics card.

Optimum Cooling

The reason why desktop PCs are better for gaming is that they have more space for heat dissipation and this is one of the areas where the new desktop gaming PC from MSI doesn’t disappoint.

MSI provides users with the choice to choose between an air cooler or a liquid cooler. According to their needs, users can select the best cooling system for them.

The air is drawn from the side and then there are many areas on the top and the rear of this PC for the air to pass through. On top of that, the desktop tower also has space to install additional fans to bring more air.

RGB for True Gaming Aesthetics

No gaming desktop is complete without RGB lighting and here you get the best of it. The new MAG META 5 5E is covered with RGB lights and to add more fun, it also has an interchangeable tempered glass side panel. To get the best from this RGB lighting, you can use the MSI Mystic Light.

That is all about the new MSI MAG META 5 5E. The pricing and availability information of the product is not yet available but it will be on the affordable side.
