MSI reveals Intel 'Haswell' gaming notebook ahead of Computex
With Computex Taipei just over a week away, <a href="http://www.msimobile.com">MSI</a> has taken the covers off its latest gaming notebooks packing Intel's next-generation 'Haswell' silicon. Heading up the range is the 17.3-inch GT70 Dragon Edition 2 that will feature a quad-core fourth-generation Core i7 processor. Graphics processing is powered by Nvidia's GeForce GTX780M and is good for a 3DMark Vantage score of 36,000.<br /><br />As with previous G-Series MSI gaming notebooks, the new GT70 Dragon Edition 2 comes with SteelSeries gaming keyboards that can process up to 10 simultaneous hits. Storage its highlighted by SSDs set up in a RAID O array, while the high performance theme is further exemplified by its ability to support up to three external monitors, in addition to its own 16:9 1080p display. The alloy chassis helps to keep the GT70 Dragon Edition 2 down to a respectable 6.3 pounds (2.9kg).<br />
<br />
The new GT70 follows yesterday's reveal by MSI of its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/286184== http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/21/both.156.and.173.inch.laptops.use.new.amd.richland .a10.processor/" rel='nofollow'>GX70 and GX60</a><br />
portable gaming rigs, which sport AMD's latest 'Richland' silicon. They, like the GT70, sport a Blu-ray drive, three USB 3.0 ports, and HDMI 1.4 out, mini DisplayPort, VGA and THX certified speakers. Both the Intel-powered GT70 Dragon Edition 2 and the AMD-powered GX70 and GX60 will be available from June, with pricing details to follow.
