These products include immersive apps for gamers who connect their gear to their games with Mystic Light RGB effects, triggered by in-game events. The SDK from Overwolf is fully compatible with the MSI Dragon Center, allowing gamers to automatically capture their best gameplays to share on social media, and play better with in-game coaching or analysis using the Overwolf Game Summary app. This collaboration between MSI and Overwolf not only improves the already outstanding gaming experiences, but also empowers gamers to play smarter and become masters of their game at their own pace. Achieving the best game experience requires in-depth cooperation as well as top-notch hardware and software. MSI is working with mainstream software and game developers to ensure all MSI gaming devices are ready to deliver new experiences and can leverage an arsenal of features from Overwolf.

MSI Gaming Monitors and Laptops add New Functions from AI Semiconductor Company Syntiant To Bring Voice Control

MSI collaborates with Intel Capital portfolio company Syntiant to develop edge AI computing. Users will not only be able to enjoy the Alexa Voice Assistant while connected online, but also to give Voice commands to the PC to finish expected work on the edge.

Last Year at Computex, MSI announced the first “Voice in Game” feature through implementation between Amazon Alexa and games. This year, MSI is expected to introduce AI Voice Assistant feature. Whether connected or not, you will be able to interact freely with your PC through voice control.

MSI combines the best Intel products with its own superb computing capability. Together with Syntiant's ultra-low-power, always-on neural network processors, MSI will bring the edge voice assistant on PC to life. This opens a wide variety of applications, such as executing tasks on your laptop or PC, controlling RGB effects on MSI gaming devices, providing in-game voice assistance during gameplay, and even controlling smart home IoT devices. In the future, users can expect to have AI voice control within Dragon Center, with the Syntiant neural network processors, to get the best voice control experience with real AI edge computing.

“We’ve always said voice is the new interface between people and technology,” said Kurt Busch, CEO of Syntiant. “Just as people use voice commands for smartphone functionality, gamers too want the same experience, and we are thrilled our technology will help a great partner such as MSI deliver voice control at the edge.”
