Packed with high-end hardware, the 18.4″ GT83S Titan SLI Laptop from MSI is designed for gamers and enthusiasts seeking to experience a different level of computing with virtual reality games and applications. It’s configured with a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-6820HK Quad-Core processor and 64GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM that enables it to efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. When dealing with a demanding workload, the CPU can reach up to 3.6 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology.
Its 18.4″ anti-glare display is built with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel that provides you with wide viewing angles and vivid colors. Combined with a 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, you’ll be able to enjoy crisp, clear, and immersive Full HD content. Graphics are handled by two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards with 8GB each of GDDR5 VRAM in SLI, which lets you enable additional graphical options and crank up in-game visual settings so you can enjoy games at their best. Having two graphics cards consumes more power; however, the Pascal generation of GPUs has increased performance per watt, allowing the GT83S to handle demanding graphics without much of a trade-off. Connect external displays using its HDMI and Mini-DisplayPort for more screen real-estate and multitasking capabilities.
Keep your files and games stored in its two 256GB PCIe SSDs in Super RAID 4 and 1TB 7200 rpm HDD. Because SSDs are constructed without any moving parts, they can perform faster and endure more than the traditional hard drive. Moreover, since the SSD is PCIe-based, it will run much faster compared to ones using a SATA interface. With it, you’ll be able to boot up and load files, games, and applications in seconds. The 1TB hard drive on the other hand, won’t run nearly as fast; however, its large capacity makes it useful for storing photos, videos, and other large format files. Should you need more room, you can connect external storage devices using its multiple USB ports, media card reader, and Thunderbolt 3 port.
Access the Internet using 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi, which lets you connect to the 5 GHz band for faster speeds, or the Gigabit Ethernet port for a more stable and reliable wired connection. If you run out of USB ports or would rather save them for other devices, you can pair compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.1 technology. Other integrated features include speakers, microphones, a subwoofer, a 1080p webcam, audio-in and -out jacks, a Blu-ray burner for reading and writing optical media, as well as a backlit mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX brown switches. Additionally, the GT83S Titan SLI comes with a backpack so you can carry it around. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home. Since this system utilizes dual graphics cards, you’ll need to connect both power adapters for sufficient power.
