MSI Infuses GT Dominator, GE Apache Gaming Notebooks With Nvidia GeForce 800M Graphics

MSI Computer Corp announced on Wednesday that the company updated the GT Dominator and GE Apache series of laptops with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 800M series graphics along with the previously announced SteelSeries backlit gaming keyboard and XSplit Gamecaster. The GT Dominator series and GE Apache series can be purchased now for starting prices of $1,499.99 and $1,199.99 respectively.

"The myriad of cutting-edge components makes the GT Dominator and GE Apache the ultimate mobile gaming systems for any type of gamers," said Andy Tung, CEO for MSI Pan America. "Nvidia’s GTX 800M Series graphics gives our notebooks unprecedented graphics processing ability, translating into an ultra-realistic and immersive gaming experience."

The laptops are broken down into four groups: the GT60 Dominator (15.6 inch), the GT70 Dominator (17.3 inch), the GE60 Apache (15.6 inch) and the GE70 Apache (17.3 inch). The Dominator laptops feature either the 870M or the 880M GPU whereas the Apache laptops will come packed with an 860M or an 850M GPU. There are around 17 models in all, which are listed below.

The GT70 DominatorPro-1039 is probably the most expensive in the whole bunch, consisting of a 17.3 inch Full HD screen, a Core i7-4930MX (3.7 GHz, 3.9 GHz) processor, and a special "Super Pack" with a headset, mouse, mousepad and backpack. This notebook also packs a $4,099.99 price tag.

According to the specs, this top-of-the-line model also sports Nvidia's GeForce GTX 880M GPU (8 GB GDDR5, VRAM) 32 GB of DDR3L 1600 MHz memory, a Blu-ray disc burner, an SD card reader, Killer E2200 game networking, Bluetooth and a 720P HD webcam. For storage, the laptop features three mSATA 128 GB SSDs with read speeds from 1000 MB/s to as much as 1500 MB/s, and a 1 TB 7200 RPM hard drive.

Out of the whole batch, the GE70 Apache Pro-061 is probably the cheapest, costing a mere $1,199.99. This model sports an Intel Core i5-4200H (3.2 GHz, 3.4 GHz) processor, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M (2 GB GDDR5), 12 GB of DDR3L 1600 MHz memory and a 1 TB hard drive. There's also a DVD burner, Killer E2200 networking, a 720P HD webcam and more.

MSI has equipped the Dominator and Apache notebooks with Sound Blaster Cinema, Dynaudio Speakers and MSI’s Audio Boost technology. They're also able to output to 4K displays and can connect multiple independent monitors simultaneously using the Matrix Multi-Monitor Display.
