MSI teases redesigned GS76 Stealth gaming laptop and a Summit E16 Flip business convertible launching at CES 2021
MSI announced 15 CES 2021 awards for a bunch of upcoming products ahead of the actual expo, mostly for teaser purposes as there are barely any specs mentioned. Among the devices we noticed a redesigned GS Stealth model and a new addition to the Summit business notebook lineup.
The GS Stealth gaming lineup is known to pack cutting edge features in a very light and slim frame. MSI is now teasing the upcoming 17-inch GS76 Stealth model, which appears to feature an all-black chassis, unlike the GS75 predecessor that came with the distracting gold hinges and accents around the trackpad and chassis edges. Unfortunately, the teaser does not mention the exact CPU or GPU specs, hinting at “the latest Intel processors and Nvidia graphics.” However, the description does include a reference to Thunderbolt 4, so we can expect to see some Tiger Lake-H action coupled with the RTX 3000 mobile GPUs on these models. MSI is currently in the process of validating a 360 Hz display option for this model, and other features include a full-sized SD card reader, plus the signature Dynaudio speakers. We are not sure about the thickness, but MSI will probably try to keep the weight at around 2.3 Kg.
As the latest addition to the Summit lineup, the E16 Flip appears to be a convertible adhering to the Intel EVO specs, so it too is thin and light. We are assuming it comes with either a 16 or 17-inch touchscreen and from what we can see in the teaser image, the black chassis gets a golden trim around the edges of the display lid. The description also mentions that the chassis is made of carbon fiber, and the specs include Tiger Lake-U processors combined with “GTX discrete graphics,” so most likely GTX 1660 Ti cards, unless Nvidia is planning to release new GTX models at CES.
Both models will be showcased on January 13 at CES 2021, and hopefully we will get some price points, as well.
