MSI launches a suite of gaming laptops powered by Intel 8th Generation processors, headlined by three models: the new GS65 Stealth Thin gaming laptop, GT75 Titan with i9 processor and GE Raider RGB Edition. MSI is also announcing a new GT83 Titan and GT63 Titan, as well as 8th generation processor updates to its GP, GL and GV lines.
GS65 Stealth Thin Gaming Laptop
The GS65 Stealth Thin is the first gaming laptop to feature a 144Hz 7ms of IPS level display with 4.9mm thin bezels - achieving a 82 percent screen-to-body ratio. While the bezels are extremely thin, MSI did not compromise on the placement of the webcam. MSI left just enough room in the top bezel for the webcam, as opposed to being placed within the bottom bezel.
To power the 144Hz panel, the Stealth Thin is equipped with up to GeForce GTX 1070 graphics and the latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor.
Weighing just 1.79kg, the Stealth Thin packs 8+ hours of battery life into a slim chassis. Greater power of 4 cell battery has one of the largest capacity available in a laptop this size.
The Stealth Thin also features a new per-key RGB keyboard designed by SteelSeries. Users can customize each key and receive real-time game status through keyboard lighting. MSI is also rolling out an update for Dragon Center 2.0 that comes with an exclusive gaming mode. The redesign brings a new UI. The gaming mode now optimizes system performance and game-specific keyboard lighting for a list of supported new titles.
The GS65 Stealth Thin is now available for pre-order and will be available online and in stores by the end of April.
GS73 & GS63 Stealth Processor Updates
In addition to the new GS65 Stealth Thin, MSI's entire Stealth line is also getting upgraded with the newest processors. The new processor improves performance by almost 40 percent compared to the previous generation. The new Stealth laptops also feature 102 keys of per-key RGB lighting, smaller fan blades, Dynaudio Certified speakers, upgraded Killer 1550 and Bluetooth v5, and Dragon Center 2.0.
GT75 TITAN with Hexa-Core Processor
With the introduction of the latest 8th Generation Intel processors, the GT series is taking one step further by featuring the first Core i9 overclocked processors in a gaming laptop. It comes armd with NVIDIA graphics and mechanical keyboards.
Combined with MSI's Cooler Boost Titan cooling design, the six-core 12-thread configuration results in up to a 70 percent performance leap over the previous Core i7.
In addition to the updates to the GT75 Titan, the GT83 Titan and GT63 Titan are also getting updated with the latest 8th generation processors.
The GT83 Titan is designed to pack a full desktop gaming experience in a mobile form factor and is the first laptop to integrate a full Cherry MX Speed Silver switch keyboard. Besides the new 8th generation Intel processor which comes with six cores, the laptop has the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI graphics.
The GT63 Titan was built upon the GT62 series but has evolved in both aesthetics and performance. The 15" laptop is featuring the latest processor and up to GeForce GTX 1080 graphics. The new chassis also features new per-key RGB lighting on the SteelSeries gaming keyboard.
GE Raider RGB Edition
First announced at CES, the GE63/73 Raider RGB Edition is inspired by sports cars and the PC Master Race's love for RGB. It was crafted for ultra-illumination with RGB lighting on the top cover, keyboard and USB ports. The top cover features 24 separate zones of RGB lighting with 16.8 million colors available.
The GE Raider RGB Edition is configurable with up to the latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor and up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics. Additionally, the Raider can be equipped with up to a 120Hz 3ms Wide-view or 4K IPS-Level display. This high performance is cooled by MSI Cooler Boost 5, a cooling design with dual fans and seven copper heats pipes.
