Combination of Intel® Haswell processor, NVIDIA® GeForce® 700M Series Graphics and Killer™ Doubleshot delivers supreme gaming experience
June 3rd, 2013 – MSI Computer Corp, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, unveils its next generation G Series gaming laptops, including the GT70 Extreme Edition featuring an Intel® 4930MX chipset. The update applies to all GT and GE models, which will now showcase NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTX 700M Series graphics, Killer™ Doubleshot and Intel’s 4th Generation Core i7 processors.

In addition, it allows laptops to play 4K video at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, four times the traditional 1080p high-definition video.
MSI combines Intel’s 4th Generation Core processors with NVIDIA’s newest GeForce GTX mobile graphics to produce an even more intense graphics experience. Based on initial 3DMark Vantage tests, the new GPUs deliver up to 22% more power when compared to previous models. Select models will also carry the ultra-performance GeForce GTX 780M GPU, delivering the most powerful mobile graphics for hardcore gaming enthusiasts. Other NVIDIA GPU’s included in the G Series family are the GTX 770M and the GTX 765M.
MSI also incorporated returning features such as the MSI exclusive Killer™ DoubleShot for lag-less wired and wireless online gaming, a highly customizable full color SteelSeries gaming backlit keyboard and premium Dynaudio speakers with subwoofer for an all-encompassing sensory escapade.
The next generation GT and GE models have also improved on its storage, cooling and display outputs.

Cooler Boost 2 makes a return with an upgraded and efficient single fan cooling solution that reduces the average temperature by 8° C . Lastly, the new Matrix Display feature allows you to connect up to 3 external displays to the notebook for a total of up to 4 independent displays (including the native notebook display).
