MSI today launches a suite of gaming laptops powered by Intel 8th Generation processors, headlined by three models: the new GS65 Stealth Thin gaming laptop, GT75 Titan with i9 processor and GE Raider RGB Edition. MSI is also announcing a new GT83 Titan and GT63 Titan, as well as 8th generation processor updates to its GP, GL and GV lines.
MSI is expected to be the first gaming laptop having Intel 8th Generation processors in the UAE market. GS65 Stealth Thin is going to start the pre-order with free MSI gaming headset, and the whole new lineup will be available online and in stores by the end of April.
MSI GS65 Stealth Thin
The GS65 Stealth Thin is the first gaming laptop to feature a 144Hz 7ms of IPS level display with 4.9mm thin bezels and achieves a 82 percent screen-to-body ratio. While the bezels are extremely thin, MSI did not compromise on the placement of the webcam. MSI has left the webcam in its place too without significantly affecting the size of the bezels, so that’s great!
To power the 144Hz panel, the Stealth Thin is equipped with up to GeForce GTX 1070 graphics and the latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, which gains up to a 40 percent performance enhancement over the previous generation with a total of 6 cores. Along with the new processor the GS65 come with the GeForce GTX 10 series graphics and MSI Cooler Boost Trinity cooling design.
The Stealth Thin definitely catches the eye and looks quite different from what you’d expect from a gaming laptop. Laptop detials are accentuated with gold lining and the laptop weighs a mere 1.79kgs. MSI claims the device will come with 8+ hours of battery-life from the device’s 4 cell battery. The Stealth Thin also features a new per-key RGB keyboard designed by SteelSeries. Users can customize each key and receive real-time game status through keyboard lighting.
The GS65 Stealth Thin is now available for pre-order with the free MSI gaming headphone and will be available online and in stores by the end of April.
