MSI GS40

MSI has unleashed the GS40 Phantom series featuring Intel’s 6th generation Skylake i7 6700HQ processor which provides 20% improved performance than the i7 4720HQ in typical usage scenarios. The GS40 range offers portability without sacrificing on power demands and incorporates the highly capable GTX 970M into a stylish brushed-aluminium chassis. Furthermore, the laptop only weighs 1.6kg and has a height profile of 19.5~21.8mm.

On another note, the GS40 contains a PCI-E Gen3 SSD slot which allows for extreme read speeds up to a staggering 2200MB/s. Also, the range supports up to 32GB of memory, with the basic model opting for 8GB DDR4-2133MHz. Other features include premium-quality DYNAUDIO speakers accompanied by the highly regarded Nahimic Audio Enhancer. There is even an ESS SABRE HiFi Audio DAC to help accentuate subtle sounds in a loud mix.

MSI’s Cooler Boost 3 technology utilizes 5 heat pipes and dual fans to create a quiet, and extremely cool user-experience. The Super Port enables the end-user to transfer large files up to 1000MB/s and fast charging for smart-devices up to 3A. The laptop series opts for RGB lighting via the SteelSeries Engine 3 and contains a vast array of customization. MSI decided to use Killer networking to prioritize gaming traffic and prevent lag spikes.

Finally, any laptop in the GS40 Phantom range is bundled with a 1-year license of XSplit to professionally stream games in superior quality. Here is a rundown of the complete specification:
