MSI is celebrating its 29th birthday with the powerful GT72S-6QF Anniversary Edition.

This is quite the team: A quad-core Intel Core i7-6820HK Skylake processor with unlocked multiplier paired with an 8 GB GDDR5 Nvidia GeForce GTX 980. This may sound like a desktop, but these are instead specifications for the upcoming MSI GT72S-6QF Dominator Pro G. The notebook will be produced in limited quantities as part of the company's 29th anniversary.

Aside from the aforementioned CPU and GPU, core specifications include:

  • 17.3-inch display with Nvidia G-Sync
  • Windows 10 Home
  • 32 GB DDR4-2133 RAM
  • 512 GB "Super RAID 4" + 1 TB HDD
  • BD-RW drive
  • USB 3.1 Type-C ("MSI Super Port")
  • Dynaudio speakers + subwoofer
  • Killer DoubleShot Pro NIC LAN + WLAN
  • SteelSeries gaming keyboard
  • 3.85 kg

The "Super RAID 4" configuration will consist of two M.2 SSDs in RAID 0 running on the PCIe 3.0 NVMe interface. The manufacturer promises mind-blowing transfer rates of up to 3.3 GB/s when using the setup. This special GT72 will start at 3800 Euros, though an exact release date has not yet been announced. See our full review on the existing GT72 for more details on the chassis and its features.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
