MSI has long been regarded as a superhero when it comes to gaming laptops but with the company having a streamlined streak of high quality products, it now came as a force to be reckoned with and will eventually be a worthy opponent not only for Intel but for those who are brave enough to venture into the gaming laptop scene.
Appearing on Computex is the flashy GX60: a 15.6inch powerhouse equipped with MSI’s latest in everything, including a quad-core A10-4600M Trinity processor clocked in at 2.3GHz with a fresh Piledriver build. To visually back its innards, the GX60 will also have an AMD Radeon HD 7970 Discrete Class Graphics and Eyefinity Multi Display Technology support.
Moreover, the GX60 will also flaunt a 1080 Full HD display with resolutions of 1920×1080 complete with a backlit LED display. Storage wise, it can carry up to 16GB of DDR3 1600 and with a serving of either a DVD or Blu-ray reader/writer, a crisp 720p High Definition webcam, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0 ports (3), one USB 2.0, HDMI output and a Killing Gaming Networking NIC. SteelSeries made the GX60’s keyboard and was exclusively made for gamers and a THX TruStudio Pro handles the audio specifics with virtual surround sound.
The MSI GX60 will also sport “Super RAID” that enables users to combine two mSATA SSDs in a RAID 0 via a mechanical hard drive that can boost data sharing of up to 1,000 megabytes per second. Vital stats have been reported at 395x267x55mm with a weight of around 3.5kg.
