MSI, known for their gaming laptops released their refreshed
line of gaming laptops in the capital city of New Delhi on April 17, 2018.
These new laptops come powered by the all new 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors.

released these new laptops for a lesser amount than their previous gen
equivalents. The new range of laptops can be pre-ordered on Flipkart, Paytm and
other authorised sellers and the stocks should be available by the end of
While the entire range of MSI gaming laptops now come
equipped with the new 8th Gen Intel CPUs, there were three major models present
at the event - GT75 Titan, GS65 Stealth Thin and GE73 Raider RGB. All the
laptops get a new and improved Dragon Center 2 and the laptops which had Cooler
Boost 4 technology have been upgraded to Cooler Boost 5. Furthermore, the new
GP and GL series of laptops have a new and improved look.
Amongst the three laptops, the GS65 Stealth Thin was the
star attraction as its design philosophy is quite different from what people
have come to expect from MSI. It gets a clean and simple look with a dark matte
finish and a golden border on the cover and on the trackpad, which gives it a
very premium and elegant touch. Despite its subtle looks, the GS65 pack quite a
lot of power. The GS65 Stealth Thin is the world's first 144HZ IPS display with
a 7ms response time and 4.9mm bezels. It gets a Core i7 8750H, 6 core 12 thread
CPU paired with a GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5 Max-Q graphics card. The 82pc screen to
body ration has allowed the company to fit a 15.6 inch display in a relatively
small footprint. There are 2 8GB DDR4 200MHz RAM sticks that can be expanded up
to 64GB. For storage there are two NVMe SSDs that proved 512GB of storage space
but there is no HDD. The company claims that the laptop can last 8+ hours
without charging. The GS65 8RF model on display costs Rs 1,89,990.
The biggest and most powerful of the three was the GT75
Titan. This beefy laptop also gets the same i7 8750H CPU but it packs a much
more powerful GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5 GPU. MSI has fitted this laptop with 2x16GB
DDR4 2666MHz RAM sticks and there is space for two more sticks for a total of
up to 64GB. There is also a variant of this laptop that comes with an unlocked
Core i9 8950H processor. The display panel on the model that was on show was a
17.3 inch UHD panle with a 60Hz refresh rate. You can also opt for a 1080p
panel that can do 120Hz with a 3ms response time. The Rapid Mechanical RGB
keyboard provides for a satisfying typing experience with the keys behaving much
like Cherry MX Blue keys. To cool all the beefy hardware is Cooler Boost Titan
system which has 10 heat pipes and 2 fans which throw out hot air from four
large vents. The core i7 model with 4K display costs Rs 2,99,990.
The GE73 Raider RGB is a refresh of the previous model with
a few key changes. These include the new i7 CPU paired with a GTX 1070 GPU and
the obvious inclusion of more RGB lighting. The new GE73 Raider RGB gets 24
zone lighting on its cover that can be easily customised like the per-key RGB
keyboard. You also get a red colour light flooding from the USB 3.0 ports for
easier access and you can turn these off as well. The rest of the specs include
16GB of DDR4 2400MHz memory, 2x256GB NVMe SSDs in Raid0 and 1080p TN panel with
120Hz refresh rate. It also gets Killer Double Shot pro networking like the
other two laptops.The MSI GE73 8RF model costs Rs 1,79,990.
