This week, PC gaming hardware frontrunner MSI has released a slew of new gaming laptops powered by Intel’s 8th Generation processors.

According to the press release, this new announcement is headlined by three models: the new GS65 Stealth Thin gaming notebook, the GT75VR Titan, which marks the first MSI laptop sporting an Intel i9 processor and GE Raider RGB Edition. The manufacturer has also revealed the new GT83 Titan and GT63 Titan, as well as updates to its GP, GL and GV line of gaming laptops.

Up first on the list is the GS65 Stealth Thin, which is MSI’s first gaming laptop to feature a 15.6-inch, 144Hz 7ms wide-view angle display with 4.9mm bezels. While the bezels are extremely thin, the company has confirmed that the webcam placement was not compromised during its initial creation as they left just enough room in the top bezel to place a webcam on the notebook. With a striking thing design, the GS65 Stealth Thind ushers in a new era of gaming notebooks making it virtually the ultimate on the go laptop.

Several other notable features on the G265 Stealth Thin include the new per-key RGB keyboard designed by SteelSeries. PC gamers can customize each key and receive real-time game standings through keyboard lighting. MSI is also working out a massive update for Dragon Center 2.0, which will include an exclusive gaming mode. Additionally, the gaming notebook also sports up to a GTX 1070 with NVIDIA Max-Q technology and the latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor.

The GS65 Stealth Thin is now available for pre-order on Newegg and Amazon and will be available in other online website and in-store sometime towards the end of the month.

Up next we have the GT75 Titan. One of the heftier gaming laptops announced in terms of design, the GT75 Titan packs quite the punch in terms of PC hardware and is the first gaming laptop to ever feature Intel Core i9 processors with fully unlocked hexa-core performance. Combined with MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan cooling design, the six-core 12-thread configuration results in up to a 70 percent performance increase compared to its predecessor. According to MSI, this laptop is designed to benefit for gamers who like to stream their favorite games or endure numerous multitasking projects. Other noteworthy features in the GT75 Titan include GPU options for either an NVIDIA GTX 1070 or 1080.

In addition to the updates to the GT75 Titan, the GT83 Titan and GT63 Titan are also getting updated with the latest Intel processors.

When designing the GT83 Titan, MSI strived to create a gaming laptop, which provides a full desktop gaming experience. The GT83 also marks the first MSI laptop to integrate a full Cherry MX Speed Silver switch keyboard and also features the new 8th generation Intel processor with six cores and offers a 40% boost in overall hardware performance. Not only that but the GT83 Titan also includes GeForce GTX 1080 SLI graphics and excellent cooling, making this ideal computer for those who desire a desktop PC but just do not have space for it.

The GT63 Titan, on the other hand, serves more so as a follow-up to the GT62 series but has emerged in both aesthetics and performance from its predecessor. By implementing the latest processor and up to GeForce GTX 1080 as your GPU option, MSI claims that the GT63 is the most powerful 15-inch gaming laptop in the world to date. The new hardware also stars the new per-key RGB lighting on the SteelSeries gaming keyboard (just like the G265 Stealth Thin).

Last (but certainly not least), the last laptop announced by the company to sport the new line of CPUs is the GE63/73 Raider RGB Edition. Initially revealed at this year’s CES, the GE Raider RGB Edition line of laptops inspired by sports cars as well as the PC gaming community’s immense admiration for RGB-lit products. MSI designed the laptop by perfectly crafting ultra-illumination with RGB lighting on the top cover, keyboard and USB ports. With the top cover featuring 24 separate zones of RGB lighting with more than 16.8 million colors options possible.

GE Raider RGB Edition is equipped with the latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 cards. Furthermore, the Raider can be furnished with up to a 120Hz 3ms display. This high performance is lessened thanks to the MSI Cooler Boost 5, a cooling design starring dual fans and seven copper heats pipes offering the most stable experience on a laptop.

With other noteworthy features such as Bluetooth 5.0, the GE Raider comes with many exclusive features not found in other models. Both gamers and techies alike can take full advantage of the well-tuned and powerful laptop to enjoy a tremendous boost in gaming and recreational activities.
