Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
MSI has finally released its gaming laptop that packs a huge performance punch. It has amazing specifications given the fact it is a laptop and would probably outperform a lot of desktop systems.
MSI is implementing a turbo hotkey technology whereby pressing a button above the keyboard will increase clock speeds and therefore performance of all your components and also increase fan speeds to ensure appropriate cooling.
- CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM
- GPU: GTX 560m 1.5GB
- Memory: Up to 16GB DDR3
- Storage: Various combinations of two different drives see attached table for more details.
- Screen: 17.3″ LED 1920by1080 or 1600by900
The gaming laptop also comes with a steel series gaming keyboard which has been optimised for gamers and has up to 5 different lighting patterns including one which lights up the left side of the keyboard around the WASD area which is crucial for gaming. USB 3.0 also comes with this gaming laptop and MSI stresses the potential gains to be had here by using external USB 3.0 storage, 10 times faster and provides 80% more power for USB based charging.
