MSI Trident 3 is returning with Core i7-9700F CPU and GeForce GTX 1660 Super graphics for $1200
Though the chassis is a few years old by now, the MSI Trident 3 continues to be a popular SFF PC due to its upgradeable CPU, GPU, RAM, and storage components. Competing mini PCs like those from Zotac may be smaller, but their highly integrated components make servicing and upgrading comparatively more difficult.
The last time we saw the Trident 3 was back in 2018 when it was updated with GeForce GTX 1080 graphics. By the end of the month, however, MSI will be reintroducing the series with a new 65 W Coffee Lake-H Core i7-9700F CPU and a removable GeForce 1660 Super desktop GPU. In fact, Amazon claims it will begin shipping the new configuration as soon as March 28.
Nothing else appears to have changed aside from the CPU and GPU update, but there is a chance that the WLAN module will be updated from Wi-Fi 5 to Wi-Fi 6. Nvidia is expected to announce the GeForce Super series for laptops soon.
