MSI to Intro New Laptops at Computex

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 5 comments

Next week MSI plans to showcase a number of new products including motherboards and graphics cards. The company also plans to show new gaming laptops that take advantage of Intel's fourth-generation "Haswell" quad-core processors, Nvidia GeForce GTX 800M series graphics, and screens sized 15.6-inch and 17-inch.

During the show, MSI plans to introduce new additions to its GS series: the MSI GS70 Stealth and GS60 Ghost series. These come packed with a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 "Haswell" processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M graphics, SteelSeries keyboards, and Killer Game Networking.

This new series also includes a "Sound by Dynaudio" speaker system, MSI's proprietary Audio Boost technology, and Matrix Display technology. MSI says the GS60 Ghost is the world's thinnest and lightest 15.6-inch gaming notebook to date, measuring just 0.783 inches thin and weighing 4.188 pounds.

In addition to the GS series, MSI will also demo its GX60 and GX70 Destroyer laptops, which include the latest generation AMD R9 M290X discreet graphics. These two laptops, along with other models on display at the show, come packed with SteelSeries gaming keyboards, Killer Game Networking, a new Sound by Dynaudio speaker system and MSI's Audio Boost technology.

MSI also plans to reveal a barebones PC called Nightblade Z97, which will feature the latest MSI Z97 GAMING motherboard, and a handle at the bottom of the mini-ITX case that allows owners to easily carry the gaming rig to LAN parties and whatnot. Additional features include Audio Boost 2, MSI's easy overclocking button OC Genie, and an assortment of connections on the front panel.

Stay tuned for more info next week.

    The Nightblade looks somewhat interesting - here's hoping for an OEM version soon, or at least a very cheap barebones option that could be affordable only for the case.

    Otherwise, it's the silverstone raven or the flat version of the same for me.

    MSI has already introduced these new additions and are already for sale.

    Yep, Dynaudio has been a part of MSI laptops for years now but hopefully they'll revamp it to new levels.

    It's nice to see MSI tackling form factor in gaming laptops. It is not everyday you see super thin gaming laptops, lots of engineering has to be put into it to maintain efficient cooling, consumers will probably pay a premium for this.

    Yup, how is the new? These were announced a while ago. Also more disappointing the AMD R9 M290X is a straight-up rebadge of the 8970M (itself a minor variant of the 7970M)

    It's exciting to see the new MSI GT72 that'll replace the GT70. It now comes with a 220w AC adapter instead of 180W so it's not limiting there anymore. 2 fans instead of one powerful 12V fan. But I wonder if it has two weaker fans or if they are super powerful like the single one in the GT70.

    BIOS overclocking options?
    Easily upgradable like the GT60/GT70?
    A bigger touchpad is nice.
    4 M.2 SSDs in RAID 0 is a fad, might as well instead have a single PCI express SSD.
