Behemoth for Professionals. MSI’s WT72 now sports updated hardware in the form of a Skylake Xeon processor and a more powerful Nvidia Quadro GPU. The other specs remain largely the same and the workstation thus remains a solid choice for CAD work and 3D modelling.

Hands on: MSI WT72 6QN review
Source: Techradar English
This is a massive workstation (although a lightweight affair compared to yesteryear's desktop replacement models) with an equally massive price tag. We're disappointed by the warranty which, standing at only 24 months, is far too short for a laptop costing that much. This aspect is especially telling compared to established players like Dell, Lenovo or HP who have workstations that would score worse on the value-for-money front, but end up getting the sale because of the ability to provide far longer (up to five years) and more responsive aftersales service.

While other gaming laptop manufacturers fall into a steady groove with their products, MSI is never afraid to push boundaries. As the first VR-capable workstation, the WT72 is a testament to the company's innovative instincts. For $4,999, game designers, architects and other creative professionals flush with cash can build their own VR worlds, thanks to a system sporting a powerful Intel Core i7 CPU and a Nvidia Quadro 5500M GPU.

Comment

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA Quadro K4100M:

High-end workstation graphics card based on the GK104 Kepler architecture with 1152 shaders and a 256-Bit wide memory bus.

NVIDIA Quadro K3100M:

High-end workstation graphics card based on the GK104 Kepler architecture with 768 shaders and a 256-Bit wide memory bus.

NVIDIA Quadro M5000M: High-end workstation graphics card based on the GM204 Maxwell architecture with 1536 shaders and a 256-bit wide memory bus. The GPU is similar to the consumer GTX 980M.

NVIDIA Quadro M1000M: High-end workstation graphics card based on the GM107 Maxwell architecture with 512 shaders and a 128-Bit wide memory bus.

NVIDIA Quadro M5500: High-end workstation graphics card based on the GM204 Maxwell architecture with all 2048 shaders based on the GTX 980 card.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4980HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 4.0 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Pro Graphics 5200 GPU and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

6920HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

Intel Xeon:

E3-1505M v5: Skylake-based quad-core processor for workstation notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics P530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

3.72 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

3.9 kg:
