MSI Reveals GS30 Shadow – The Lightest Gaming Notebook in the Market

/ 3 years ago


MSI have just revealed their gorgeous new 13.3 inch gaming notebook; the GS30 Shadow. The new notebook comes equipped with a 4th Gen Core i7 processor and features Iris Pro graphics, an interesting choice for a gaming notebook, but it’ll still support DX11.1, OpenCL 1.2, OpenGL 4.0 and enhanced 4k x 2k.

The main party trick of the GS30 is the weight and size of the system, clocking in at just 1.3kg and 19.8mm thick, meaning that the GS30 is the lightest gaming notebook in the market.


While gaming performance on the Iris might not sound like the best solution for mobile gaming, it’s still got enough power for when you’re out and about. When you’re back at home or in the office, you can use the dedicated desktop dock to boost performance even further. The dock is basically a stand which features a discrete graphics card of your choice. The dock will run the card through the laptop via a full PCI-e x16 interface.
