From time to time we see new desktop designs with some changes in their housing and approach, but this new MSI, really caught my attention, reminding me so much the Mac Pro approach, but with a more aggressive design:
It is not taller than 27cm and close to 4Kg weight, being quite compact and powerful for our desks.
In next image you can see a complete 3D exploded view of all its internals and how they are arranged; which is complex and awesome at same time:
And also how is intented to dissipate all its inner heat generated:
Simply, a tiny but powerful Beast 😀
The electronics evolves by leaps and bounds, but today, 25 years ago, the first 16bits home console reached Europe.
It was the SEGA Mega Drive, a console which stills today have a cool and smooth mechanical design:
But what you can find even more interesting are its internals, look in next photo its inner mother board:
As you can see most of the IC’s were still through-hole devices, being the main CPU and GPU the only ones SMD chips; which were also even designed in-house, and some patch wire-wrapping too! 😀
Those days are already gone, but I still feel somewhat nostalgic when I look at this pre-historic electronics for someones 😉
Our Human Brain is really astonishing, and still more powerful that any human computer creation. Mr. Dwayne Godwin neuroscientist from Wake Forest University School of Medicine, and in collaboration with Jorge Cham cartoonist, prepared the following self-explanatory infographic:
