MSI provided us with some gaming benchmark numbers of their new Desktop Gaming PCs with Resizable BAR enabled and disabled. It looks like the feature does improve gaming performance but once again, that’s limited to certain games, and not every game will feature a similar boost.
As for pricing, each model will feature different prices based on the configuration that users are going after. Considering that there’s a huge shortage of graphics cards at the moment, these pre-built desktop gaming PCs are your best chances at getting hands on the brand new GeForce RTX graphics cards for gaming purposes.
