MSI (Micro-Star International) has returned, after a long hiatus, and has decided to sponsor AYBOnline Inc and BaseLAN at the GOLD tier level for BaseLAN 28 this May. We are excited about this returning partnership and welcome them back. We expect to work well together with MSI and hopefully will see them come to BaseLAN 29 this fall with a booth to show off their amazing products as we expand more into our tech expo.

About the company

Micro-Star International Co., Ltd (MSI) was established in August 1986 by 5 founders, one of the world’s largest information technology manufacturers.

MSI started from the motherboard and graphics card industries and extended into consumer and commerical electronics including notebooks, All-in-One PCs, servers, workstations, industrial PCs, household appliances, car infotainment products, barebone systems, multimedia, communication devices, and others.

MSI holds itself responsible not only to its clients, employees and stockholders, but also to the society and environment as a whole to consistently fulfill its corporate commitment.

With innovation and style as its core value, customer satisfaction and premium service as its goal, MSI will definitely be the most brilliant star in the global brands!

MSI Gaming Series

As a world leading gaming brand, MSI’s goal is to become the most trusted name in gaming and e-sport. We’ve dedicated countless hours and committed numerous resources to the eSports community to support the world’s most aspiring and best gamers and use their knowledge and expertise in our products in return. The insistence on 100% in-house design and manufacturing gives MSI the solid capability to implement innovative ideas and optimized design in our products. Experts from different fields were called in to co-design and implement the best gaming features such as Dynaudio high-performance speakers, Killer LAN gaming network technology or SteelSeries gaming keyboards. Every MSI GAMING product, such as our notebooks, motherboards, All-in-One PCs or graphics cards are a accumulation of collective wisdom.

But only technology doesn’t make a gaming brand. With our spirit of Top Player – Top choice, MSI has sponsored more than 10 professional gaming teams worldwide. For these professionals as well as the tens of millions of gamers that watch professional eSports online or through live events such as DreamHack and PAX, MSI has become a familiar face. Through our own gaming tournaments, MSI Beat It, we’ve created numerous opportunities for amateur and professional gamers to prove their worth in online and offline events including a $100K tournament.


The MSI GAMING Shield’s black & red design signifies the resonance of stability (black) with passion (red). Accentuated by the dragon, the shield is a symbol of power and constitutes the MSI GAMING Identity System.


MSI GAMING provides an open community for all gamers. With precious feedback from gaming events, partner teams, and user’s comments, MSI GAMING empowers gamers to be at their best.


MSI GAMING is committed to designing the most innovative and relevant gaming product lineup to provide the best gaming experience in the world.
