As I previously told you, NVIDIA just launched the new GeForce GTX 800M series graphics, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that most gaming laptop manufacturers have rushed to implement the fresh standard into their laptops.So mobile gaming notebook champion, MSI just introduced the new GT Dominator and GE Apache laptops. Of course, their most noticeable feature is the presence of the new GeForce GTX 800M series graphic chips.
Both 17-inch Dominator and 16-inch Apache draw power from a 4th-gen Intel Core i7 processor (Haswell). The Dominator will offer a choice between 870M or 880M GPUs, while the Apache will make you choose between 860M or 850M GPUs.
Moving on, both laptops enjoy MSI’s Super RAID 2 technology treatment and are equipped with three mSATA SSDs said to be capable of running speeds between 1,000 Mbps to 1,500 Mbps (apparently three times faster than on a single SSD).
As previously announced by MSI for all gaming laptops, the new SteelSeries backlit keyboard and Killer Gaming Network software will also be incorporated into the new laptops.
MSI’s Xsplit Gamecaster, a piece of software in charge of automatically adjusting streaming settings for the laptop and IPS will also be present onboard. Sadly, there’s no info about the availability of the two models, but the Apache will sell starting at $1,299 / €935 while the Dominator price will climb up from $1,499 / €1,079.
