This new line of portable gaming computers will be coming with three models: The new GS65 Stealth Thin gaming notebook, GT75VR Titan with i9 processor and GE Raider RGB Edition.
“These new models are like nothing the gaming laptop market has seen before,” said Eric Kuo, MSI Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing. “We’re breaking gaming laptop conventions with the Stealth Thin’s beautiful new design, the unmatched performance of the GT75 with an i9 processor and the Raider’s unique RGB lighting.”
Just what are the capabilities of the new gaming laptops? Well, in this feature we’ll be talking about their specs and what can be expected from this new variety of gaming laptops that will probably be in a lot of PC Gaming enthusiasts wishlist.
A Titan is born
The GT75 Titan is the very first piece that’s worth talking about. The GT is the first gaming laptop with an Intel Core i9 processor. This processor also has fully unlocked hexa-core performance. This Titan is certainly ready to seamlessly move monoliths, that’s for sure.
The 12-core processor will be aided by MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan cooling design. Marking a performance upgrade of 70% compared to the best the Intel Core i7 series can offer. This will definitely benefit those gamers who want to seamlessly stream their games without issue.
This gaming laptop also comes with DDR4 memory slots that can be expanded up to 32 GB. With an NVIDIA GTX 1080 coming to make the most demanding current generation graphics look like child’s play. This beast will come at an estimate price of $3299 USD.
Some other key features include the 17.3’’ UHD Display which allows for 4K Gaming and the Low-Profile Mechanical keyboard made with gaming enthusiasts in mind. This is a laptop that will definitely be in the sights of those who want seamless gaming at high resolutions.
Sleek and Colorful
Next up we have the GE63/73 Raider RGB Edition. This laptop is heavily inspired by the love we have for RGB color schemes (It’s like we can’t live without a rainbow keyboard). This laptop screams “Style” as its lit with RGB colors on the top cover, keyboard and USB ports.
This laptop also has compatibility with GTX 1070 graphics cards and latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 Processor units. The Raider can also be equipped with a 4K IPS-Level display or 120Mhz Display.
The best features about the Raider are definitely its sleek design and the stylish color palette that will be showing its beauty anywhere it goes. Of course, we can’t forget the features like the Bluetooth 5.0 capability among other features that will definitely leave a lot of gamers pleased.
The Raider will be coming for pre-orders with the most expensive units costing around $2,539 USD. A stylish choice for those who want to look cool while playing their favorite games.
Thin But Effective, Stealthy and Deadly.
The GS65 Stealth Thin is the company’s first gaming laptop to feature a 144Hz 7ms IPS display. It has 4.9mm bezels and the screen-to-body ratio is 82 percent. The laptop comes with GeForce GTX 1070 GPU along with Nvidia Max-Q technology.
This laptop will also pack the latest in Intel i7 processors, making a leap of over 40% in performance over previous builds in the last generation.
Of course, the greatest appeal of the GS65 is the weight. This slim laptop will be a must for people who move around a lot as it weighs a very astounding 1.8 kilograms. Of course, this unit also comes with an exclusive RGB keyboard.
This keyboard has a very unique function which allows users to customize each key individually and also receive real-time game status through keyboard lighting. The price of this unit is around $2,615 USD.
The Future of Laptop Gaming.
There are a lot of things that could be said about these rigs. Such as the fact that they have a lot of impressive features but at the same time they are extremely costly. However, it’s worth pointing out that the performance these rigs offer are definitely worth it.
Could we see something incredible rising from these MSI units? Probably, it’s a matter of time before we see what these monsters are all capable of. I briefly mentioned how incredible the Intel i9 processors are, as such, I’m mostly curious about the Titan’s performance.
