MSI is delivering plenty of goods for gaming enthusiasts at this year's Computex show in Taipei, Taiwan. The products on display will include gaming notebooks, monitors, all-in-one PCs and motherboard (among others).
At the top of the gaming [laptop] totem pole is the , which is quite a mouthful to say. The 17.3-inch laptop (Full HD or 4K display options) comes packing Intel's top-of-the line Intel Core i9 unlocked hexa-core Coffee Lake processors that works in conjunction with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. Other features include a SteelSeries mechanical keyboard with per-key RGB backlighting, Killer Wireless-AC 1550 networking and Aquantia 10 GbE.
The GE73 Raider RGB also goes the 8th generation route, but instead tops out with Core i7 processors. You can choose from either GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 GPUs, while a 120Hz 17.3-inch display should be a delight for your eyes. Like the GT75 Titan 8RG, the GE73 Raider RGB features per-key RGB lighting for the keyboard, while Killer DoubleShot Pro handles networking duties. Keeping things nice and cool is MSI's Cooler Boost 5 technology which employs dual thermal modules, dual Whirlwind Blade fans and plenty of heat pipes to dissipate heat.
Other products on tap include the Optic MPG27 Series gaming monitor, which features a 27-inch 1ms VA panel with a 144Hz refresh rate and 178-degree viewing angles the B360 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard with MSI Mystic Light effects and Twin Turbo M.2 support, and the X299 SLI Plus motherboard with support for up to 18-core Intel Core-X Series HEDT processors.
Pricing and availability for all of MSI's new products will be announced later this week.
