To celebrate its 29th anniversary, MSI presents hardcore gamers limited edition gaming notebook powered by NVIDIA GTX980 graphics and the latest Intel 6th generation Core i7-6820HK processor. 3D Mark 11 performance, when overclocking, is expected to reach over P14,500 points, which is as powerful as that of desktops with GTX980 graphics.


NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ display technology synchronises the display's refresh rate to the GPU render rate to eliminate screen tearing and minimise display stutter and input lag to deliver smoother, faster, more breathtaking gaming experiences. Scenes appear instantly, objects look sharper and more vibrant, and gameplay is more fluid and responsive providing gamers with significant performance advantages.


The new 6th generation Intel processors require lower power consumption but deliver better performance than before. CPU performance of Core i7-6700HQ is 20% faster than i7-4720HQ under average usage. For GT series with the Core i7-6820HK SKU, CPU frequency can be stretched from 3.7GHz to over 4GHz and CPU performance increases 30% compared with that of i7-4720HQ (The overclock frequency may differ depending on the CPU capacity).


Get in the game before everyone else with Super RAID 4, MSI's fastest RAID 0 storage configuration. Combining dual PCI-E Gen 3.0 x4 SSD's utilizing NVMe technology, harness the full performance potential of the Gen 3.0 SSD through the optimisation of the hardware and software outputting extreme read speeds over 3300MB/s. Load games in seconds!


Whatever you need, you can get it done with just one Super Port. Transfer massive files faster than ever with up to 1000MB/s transfer rates. Get more pixel power supporting dual 4K displays and extend your field of view with daisy chain capabilities. Even charge your phones, tablet and any device faster on-the-go or at home (support up to 3A current).


Heat is the most original element on earth. It's pure physics that more energy will generate more heat. Cooling is therefore a knotty task to tackle with. MSI exclusive Cooler Boost 3 technology creates dual thermal modules internally by allocating dedicated heat pipes for GPU and CPU. One click on the fan boost button, a total of 6 heat pipes and dual fans actively and effectively push heat out of the system, making the cooling design of GT72 the highest level of its kind.


Get the best possible performance out of your notebook with support of the advanced DDR4-2133 memory, achieving over 2.9GB/s in reading speed and 3.2GB/s in writing. With over 30% faster performance than previous generations DDR3-1600, DDR4-2133 is the new laptop standard to take your extreme gaming experience to the next level.
