CES 2021 doesn’t begin until January, but the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) has already released a sneak peek at some of the CES 2021 Innovation Awards honorees. Plenty of unique products were recognized, but the gaming industry was primarily represented by MSI and its 15 products honored with awards.
The entire lineup will be revealed on January 13, but MSI and the CTA are giving us an early look at some of the products that will be shown off during the event. Here are a few of the MSI products that earned an Innovation Award at the upcoming CES 2021:
- Summit E15 (Award Category: Computer Hardware & Components)
- Summit E16 (Award Category: Computer Hardware & Components)
- GS76 Stealth (Award Category: Gaming)
- MAG Trident S (Award Categories: Gaming, Computer Hardware & Components)
- Optix Monitors (Award Categories: Gaming, Computer Peripherals & Accessories)
Several other gaming-related gear made the cut, including AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, and the retro Analogue Pocket.
The above selections were made by “an elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more.” Before making any decisions, the panel “reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.”
CES isn’t specific to the gaming industry, but we often see some wild innovations come out of the show. Last year’s show saw products such as the Alienware Aurora R9 and Alienware m15 on display, along with a bold new gaming chair from Arcadeo. It’s certainly no E3 or PAX, but we typically get a few gaming-related announcements during the conference.
The upcoming CES 2021 is going all-digital for the first time in the show’s history and will be broadcast January 11-14. Plenty of speakers are scheduled to present, including executives from Google, Twitter, IBM, Microsoft, and Reddit. To learn about the event, check out the official CES 2021 website. There, you’ll be able to check out more award winners, get a look at the full schedule, and plan out your digital itinerary.
