MSI Prestige 16 AI Evo, Claw 8 AI Plus and more launched at Computex 2024

At Computex 2024, a host of MSI AI-ready PCs, GPU servers and more made their official debut. Alongside a host of new displays, desktops, components and gaming laptops, a refreshed version of their popular Claw gaming handheld dubbed the Claw 8 AI Plus and more.

While the MSI Stealth 18 Mercedes Motorsport AMG Gaming laptop took the limelight, the MSI Prestige 16 AI Evo took the gold with a COMPUTEX Best Choice Golden Award in the computer and system category. Belying its modest 1.5kg weight, it has an Intel Core Ultra 9 CPU and 99.9WHr battery with PD 3.1 140W charging in a magnesium alloy chassis.

Displayed under glass at the MSI booth at Computex 2024 was the MSI Claw 8 AI Plus which has a different design from the base MSI Claw and a two-toned grey-and-black paint job with RGB-backlit thumb sticks flanking the main 8-inch FHD 120Hz display which has 100%sRGB and 500 nits brightness. 

Powering the MSI Claw 8 AI Plus is the latest ’Intel Core Ultra ‘Lunar Lake’ processors’ and the partial spec sheet displayed alongside it mentions improved Cooler Boost HyperFlow cooling with two fans and heat pipes along with an ‘intraflow thermal design’. According to what Digital Trends has to say, this gaming handheld will debut in September 2024.
