MSI decided to announce its high-end 17-inch GT75 Titan 8RG and mid-high GE73 Raider RGB right before Computex 2018, and the two models will be on display in Taipei. The GE73 Raider RGB comes with Intel Core i7 hexa-core CPUs and GTX 1070 GPUs, while the GT75 Titan 8RG sports the more expensive i9 hexa-cores and desktop-grade GTX 1080 GPUs. l

Computex 2018 is opening up tomorrow, and many OEMs are expected to unveil their latest products during the next 5 days. MSI, however, chose to give a few sneak peeks at some of its gaming laptops ahead of the official announcements. The models in question are the high-end GT75 Titan 8RG and the GE73 Raider RGB.

First off, let’s take a look at the new GE73 Raider model. Since it is an RGB variant, the keyboard comes with individually lit keys and there are two design elements that also get the RGB lighting treatment on the lid. The processors got updated to Intel’s gen 8 i7 hexa-cores, and there’s only one GPU option – the GTX 1070 GPU. Looking at the provided pictures, the screen does not seem to be featuring slim bezels. Users can choose between a 1080p 3 ms 120 Hz version and a 4K IPS-level one with 100% sRGB color gamut, both of them coming in 17.3-inch diagonals. Other options include:
•    Up to 32 GB of DDR4-2666
•    NVMe SSD + HDD storage combos

•    Giant Speakers by Dynaudio (2x Speakers + 2x Woofers)

•    Connector suite: 1x USB-C 3.1, 3x USB-A 3.1, Ethernet jack, SD card reader, HDMI, mDP, mic in, headphone out
•    51 Whr 6-cell battery

Moving on to the high-end GT75 Titan 8RG, this one got updated with gen 8 CPUs up to Core i9 and includes the desktop version of the GTX 1080 GPU. This model comes with a mechanical keyboard with improved reaction times, which gets per key RGB lightning. As with the GE73 Raider model, the 17.3-inch display can either come in 1080p or 4K resolutions. Here are the exclusive options that come with this model:
•    Aquantia AQtion Multi-Gig Ethernet
•    Killer Command Center
•    Cooler Boost Titan
•    Thunderbolt 3 connector
•    ESS Sabre Hi-Q audio
•    MSI X Boost for storage devices

No word on pricing and availability as of yet, but starting prices should be over US$2,000 at least for the high-end model.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
