COMPUTEX 2017 | MSI debuts monster GT75VR Titan gaming notebook
With the increased emphasis on thin-and-light gaming notebooks, the more traditional “desktop replacement” category has become somewhat barren over the past few years. However, the thicker chassis of gaming behemoths like the MSI GT80 Titan offer some serious power in a (somewhat) portable package. MSI continues to offer gaming notebooks without compromise with the new GT75VR Titan.
The GT75VR Titan has some commonality with the older GT80 Titan. Users can opt for dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GPUs in SLI for insane gaming power. Less expensive options with a single GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 will also be available. For the CPU, the GT75VR can be equipped with an Intel Core i7-7820HK. This is an unlocked processor that MSI says can be overclocked to 4.0 GHz.
The display is just as uncompromising as the other internals; the 17.3-inch screen has a 4K 120 Hz panel with support for HDR. MSI claims that the display covers the entirety of the AdobeRGB color space, which is an impressive feat. One of the other defining features of the GT75VR (as if an overclocked CPU and dual GPUs wasn’t enough) is the SteelSeries keyboard with individually RGB-backlit keys.
Pricing and availability for the GT75VR haven’t been announced yet, but don’t expect the device to come cheap. Similarly specced notebooks typically run in the high $3,000s to low $4,000s.
