MSI unleashes high-end gaming notebooks in UAE
Range of models deliver mix of portability and performance
Taipei-based PC maker Micro-Star International Co Ltd (MSI) this week teamed up with Grand Stores to unveil the Taiwanese company's latest range of premium gaming notebooks.
The series is made up of MSI GT60 3K Edition, MSI GT70 Dragon Edition, MSI GS70 Stealth, MSI GE60, MSI GE70 and MSI GE40 Dragon Eyes.
The new, lighter notebooks are equipped with the latest fourth-gen Intel Core i7 Quad Core processors and an upgraded version of MSI-exclusive gaming features such as Super Raid 2 (with a disk reading speed at 1,500MB/s according to MSI); the high-efficiency Cooler Boost; and the Matrix Display with VGA, Mini-Display and HDMI video ports for multitasking without the need of adaptors.
Also featured in the range is Killer DoubleShot, which is said to boost networking speed for "ultimate smoothness" in online games.
The notebooks are also equipped with a SteelSeries full-colour backlit keyboard; high-end sound by Dynaudio; and the MSI-exclusive Audio Boost technology.
"MSI is known for [its] groundbreaking innovations and in this series, [it] has significantly enhanced the performance of its flagship gaming models with the highest-standard technology, richer gaming functions and friendlier user experience," said Dr Omar Ghanayem, director, Technology Division, Grand Stores.
"Grand Stores is committed to unleash this full potential and make MSI the ideal brand of gaming notebooks in the UAE".
MSI GT70 ‘Dragon Edition 2 extreme' is the flagship model in terms of specification. The GT60 ‘3K Edition' is said to be "the world's first gaming notebook with 3K UHD, Triple Display & NVIDIA GTX780M GPU".
MSI aimed to break the convention of performance-equals-weight with the MSI GS70, which weighs less than 2.6kg and is 21.8mm thick. It is said, by MSI, to be the "thinnest, lightest, and best-equipped gaming notebook in the industry".
MSI describes the GE70 as "ultra-thin" and capable of "instant" data retrieval. The company's GE40 Dragon Eyes stresses portability, weighing less than 2kg and measuring 2.5cm thick. It is available in 17-inch and 14-inch models. While powered up, the GE40 Dragon Eyes, outer shell emits red light, "shining like a dragon's eyes".
