MSI launches GTX 780M and Haswell based gaming laptop
The folks over at MSI have uncovered its latest notebooks, interestingly enough ahead of Computex. Predominantly it is targeted at gaming, the new models come with discrete graphics and features geared toward PC gamers. The 17.3-inch MSI GT70 Dragon Edition 2 is the flagship model, which sports all the latest hardware. It will come with what we think is Intel's upcoming Haswell processor, due to be announced at Computex 2013 in Taiwan. It is also equipped with the latest Nvidia GeForce GTX780M, which according to MSI, gives it a 3DMark Vantage score of 36,000.
Other features include multiple SSDs in a RAID 0 array (optimized for speed), a keyboard by gaming peripheral brand SteelSeries and the ability to plug in three external monitors for a total of four displays. This is done through the inclusion of three outputs found at the rear--VGA, Mini DisplayPort and HDMI reports cnet asia.

It, too, will sport a next-generation Intel processor and Nvidia graphics in the form of the GeForce GTX765M. Performance features aside, what stands out most about the GS70 Stealth is the metallic chassis and 2.9-kg weight, which is relatively lightweight for a 17-inch notebook. This rivals the Razer Blade notebook, and MSI's version is even marginally slimmer with a thickness of 21.8mm.
Other models in the lineup include the 14-inch GE40, a 2kg notebook sporting the Nvidia GTX760M graphics and the GX70E, another 17-incher that uses AMD for the processor and graphics. The new notebooks will be available starting June, after Computex. Prices have not been announced, but look out for them at your local electronics retailers from next month onward.
