At Computex, MSI showed off a plethora of upcoming gaming laptops with the latest 4th Generation Intel Core processors, Nvidia 7-series” Kepler” mobile graphics and speedy SSD RAID-0 storage. We go hands on with three of the best –
GT70 Dragon Edition II Extreme
Quite possibly the fastest gaming laptop in the world , this 17-inch behemoth packs a top of the line quad-core Intel Core i7-4930MX Extreme Edition and Nvidia Geforce GTX 780M and Super RAID 2 technology for three drive RAID-0 (1500MB/s) to eliminate any I/O bottlenecks.
The GT70 features Killer DoubleShot for low-latency Gigabit LAN/Wifi, a SteelSeries branded keyboard with multi-color backlighting, and Dynaudio speakers for an immersive gaming experience. All the upcoming models in the GT series are also equipped with a miniDP 1.2 and HDMI 1.4 that can output to 4K and UHD displays.
Next up is the GS70, which aims to be the “thinnest, lightest and best-equipped” gaming laptop in the industry. Weighing in at less than 2.6kg and measuring only 2.18cm thick, the GS70 manages to pack a quad core Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GTX765M graphics and a pair of SSDs in RAID-0.
We can’t help but notice the similarities in design/looks between the GS70 and a certain Razer Blade. The last picture in the gallery set above even shows a special prototype of the GS70 with an LCD touchpad.
GT60 3K Edition
MSI also showed off a special edition of the GT60 with a 15.6″ WQHD+ display (2880X1620).
To help drive gaming at such a high resolution, the GT60 comes with a i7-4930MX CPU and GTX780M GPU, 32GB of DDR3 system memory and three 128GB SSDs in RAID-0 augmented by a 1tB HDD for mass storage
