and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 are optional.
Trident X2 has obvious changes in appearance compared with the previous generation Trident X. The whole machine adopts a special-shaped design, the right side of the front of the chassis is raised, and it is equipped with an RGB light strip. There is an HMI 2.0 touchscreen on the left side of the front of the chassis, with a screen size of 4.5 inches. Users can directly observe the operating status of the system and make performance adjustments. If users use a compatible display, they can also directly adjust display brightness, smart crosshair, and other settings through the HMI 2.0 touchscreen.
The size of the whole machine is 487.15×222.63×453.84mm, and the volume is about 49.2L. There are large cooling holes on the top and right side of the machine. Trident X2 has four DDR5 U-DIMMs memory slots, one PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 interface, one PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 interface, and the PCI-E x16 slot supports PCIe 5.0. The machine also supports the installation of two 2.5-inch hard drives and two 3.5-inch hard drives.
