MSI isn’t strangers with High-end notebooks since they’ve had desktop replacement units specifically for gamers and for some production work. However, they plan to release a mobile workstation notebook and plan to start shipping from next month.
MSI’s GT60 will feature a backlit keyboard and aluminum casing. Although from the outside, its going to look like their usual gaming units, the inside however is powered with Nvidia Quadro K2000M 2GB GDDR5 which will help in the following:
Scalable Geometry Engine — Dramatically improves geometry performance across a broad range of CAD, DCC, and medical applications. This enables you to work interactively with models and scenes that are an order of magnitude more complex than ever before.
Fast 3D Texture Transfer — Allows fast transfer and manipulation of 3D textures, resulting in more interactive visualization of large volumetric datasets.
Hardware 3D Window Clipping — Enables hardware-accelerated clip regions for faster data transfer between a window and the frame buffer to improve overall graphics performance.
16K Texture and Render Processing — Provides the ability to texture from and render to 16K x 16K surfaces. Beneficial for applications that demand the highest resolution and quality image processing.
OpenGL Quad Buffered Stereo Support — Provides a smooth and immersive 3D Stereo experience for professional designing applications.
The workstation notebook will be available with several Quad Core Intel i7 IVB processor options and upto 32GB of memory support, 2x 64GB mSATA in RAID 0 and HDDs in RAID or 1 setup, a 1080p anti-glare display and keyboard designed by SteelSeries.
