MSI's most powerful gaming laptop GT76 Titan DT now shipping for $3999
Unveiled at Computex 2019, the 17.3-inch MSI GT76 Titan supplants the last generation GT75 Titan with a brand new "sports-car-inspired" chassis design for an even sleeker appearance. Customizable RGB lights line the front and rear edges of the chassis to further accentuate the gamer aesthetic commonly associated with MSI products.
Aside from visuals, the biggest performance upgrade over the GT75 is the move to a standard LGA1151 CPU socket type to support desktop processors up to the unlocked 95 W Core i9-9900K in contrast to the 45 W Core i9-8950HK on the last generation model. Users can expect a raw multi-thread CPU performance upgrade of at least 50 percent over most other gaming laptops as a result.
The MSI GT76 is now available online through resellers like CUK, Newegg, HIDevolution, and Fry's for $3900 or more. Direct competitors in this "super enthusiast" category include the Dell Alienware Area-51m and Eurocom Sky X9C.
