At Computex 2019, MSI has just unveiled their latest flagship desktop replacement – the GT76 Titan as well as the high-end enthusiast GE65 Raider.
Laptops with desktop-class CPU is definitely not new, but I couldn’t remember if there’s any of those are able to tame the CPU that is installed in the socket. Meet the GT76 Titan where it proves how it is worthy of powerful desktop-class performance in a laptop.
In terms of performance, expect no less from MSI as the Intel Core i9 desktop processor is being overclocked to 5.0GHz across all eight cores. The graphics, without a doubt, the full fledge NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080.
How MSI is able to push all those powerful component is all thanks to their exclusive Cooler Boost Titan cooling solution. That is a massive HSF module with 11 heat pipes and cooled by 4 fans. More than half of the bottom chassis is just a simple metal grill with standoffs to further improve the cool air intake.
The 17.3-inch display has two options available for selection, either Full HD 144Hz or 4K 60Hz. Pretty straightforward depending if one is a gamer or a creator. The new GT76 also gets the Killer DoubleShot Pro that supports 2.5Gbps LAN and WiFi 6.
The new GE65 Raider is here to replace the ageing GE63. The thinner chassis is based on the GE75 which was revealed late last year. MSI is actually offering the GE65 up to Intel Core i9-9980HK and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics. Anyone in their right mind would not take that route, consider how GT76 needed that massive HSF to keep things in check. Nonetheless, we were told that the local GE65 will be coming with Intel Core i7 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070.
The display has been upgraded with the ultra-fast 240Hz IPS-level thin bezel display. The overall colour tone has been shifted towards a darker colour scheme with the non-backlit MSI dragon logo and all blacked out heat pipes which are visible through the ventilation grills under the laptop.
Both GT76 Titan & GE65 Raider will be making its way to Malaysia and we will be sure to keep you updated when the official pricing and specifications drop in our inbox.
