MSI has announced a new entrant to its workstation lineup, the WP65. The WP65 mobile workstation is powered by a 9th gen Intel Core i7 processor and the just announced NVIDIA Quadro P620 graphics. The WP65 is certified by independent ISVs for workstation programs and from the looks of it, seems to be one of the more affordable workstation laptops.

NVIDIA announced the new Quadro P620 workstation GPU at Computex 2019 and MSI looks to be the first OEM to incorporate it in an all-new workstation laptop, the WP65. The WP65 mobile workstation offers up to a 9th gen Intel Core i7 hexa-core processor, NVIDIA Quadro P620 graphics, DDR4-2666 RAM options up to 64 GB, and more.

The WP65 sports a 15.6-inch IPS-level thin bezel display. A true IPS display would have probably helped with much more accurate colors required by professionals but we'll rest that conclusion for our review. Connectivity options include 1x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C, 2x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A, 1x Ethernet, 1x HDMI 1.4, 1x headphone-out, and 1x mic-in. From the looks of it, MSI is looking to position the WP65 as a more affordable workstation for those who need to use ISV applications such as SolidWorks, AutoCAD, Moldflow Insight, etc. on the go. MSI also bundles a Creator Center app to optimize performance for specific ISV programs.

As with most workstation laptops, build quality is given the required importance with the WP65 is MIL-STD 810G certified to tolerate a wide variety of operating and handling conditions. Here's a look at the specifications of the MSI WP65 —

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
