Besides the WS65 mobile workstation and P65 Creator notebook, MSI took the time to unveil the GE75 Raider, a successor and refresh of its earlier GE73 Raider gaming notebook that launched earlier this year.
As you’d expect, the GE75 sports some pretty heavy-hitting hardware that would caters to gamers. For a start, it has a large 17.3-inch Full HD IPS display, which is beefed up with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 3ms response time. On top of that, the bezels on the display are exceedingly thin. Marking a similarity to its ultra-thin and powerful brother, the GS65 Stealth.
Moving on, the GE75 comes in two configurations; one with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, the other with a GeForce GTX 1070 discrete GPU. Regardless of the variant though, both units come equip with an Intel Core i7-8750H CPU, 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM, and a 256GB NVMe PCIe SSD and 1TB 7200RPM HDD combo. On top of that, the keyboard features per-key RGB lighting.
For ports, the GE75 features a Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet port, one HDMI 2.0 port, a mini DisplayPort 1.4, one USB 3.1 Type-C Gen2 port, two USB 3.1 Type-A Gen1 ports, a USB .31 Type-A Gen2 port, an SD Card reader, and individual jacks for headphones and microphones. There is a slight trade-off; for all the power that it delivers, the GE75 weighs in at a pretty hefty 2.66kg.
The MSI GE75 Raider is already available and can be purchase directly from MSI’s official online store on Lazada. It retails at RM7999 for the base model with the GTX 1060, while the model with the GTX 1070 will set you back RM9499.
