MSI up-specs gaming laptops for the entry-level range – Gaming Laptops


Switching up to the latest CPU, GPU and SSD tech

MSI’s CES reveal included several upgraded gaming laptops. The company is usually one of the first to incorporate new technology as it emerges, and the CES lineup have all switched to Intel Kaby Lake CPUs, and Nvidia 10-series GPUs.

The new GE72 and GE62 range offer the choice of Nvidia GTX 1050 and 1050Ti GPUs, and also offers a choice of screen resolutions, which includes 4K, as well as the fastest new SSD standard, with each new machine sporting an NMVe SSD paired with a 1TB hard drive. Each new gaming laptop also includes a BD/DVD optical drive.

All models have a Kaby Lake i7 7700HQ CPU, which operates between 2.8GHz and 3.8GHz.

HDMI plus an additional Mini Displayport plug enables two external screens to be connected.
