At Computex MSI had on display its highly-acclaimed GAMING series laptops fueled by the upcoming 5th generation Intel® Core i7 processors, Tobii Eye-Tracking Technology, KillerTM Wireless-AC 1535 with new Extreme RangeTM Technology, Nahimic Sound Technology, and NVIDIA®G-SYNC, SLI extreme graphics.
Here is a glimpse of MSI’s product highlights at COMPUTEX 2015
GT72, Powerful Machine and World’s First to Feature Eye-Tracking Technology and NVIDIA G-SYNC
MSI partners with Tobii Tech, the global leader in eye-tracking technology, to integrate eye-tracking function into the GT72 gaming laptop. With this technology, the GT72 will offer deeper game immersion and most realistic experience available. MSI GT72 also incorporates GTX980M 8GB GDDR5 graphics with G-SYNC feature. G-SYNC’s revolutionary performance is achieved by synchronizing display refresh rates to the GPU in the GeForce GTX-powered system, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag. The results are instantly appearing scenes, sharper looking objects and super smooth gameplay. GT72 that packs powerful NVIDIA® G-SYNC technology will give gamers a stunning visual experience and a serious competitive edge.
GT80, the Ultimate Gaming Beast with SLI Graphics and World’s First to Pack KillerTM Wireless-AC 1535
MSI GT80 Titan features the latest Intel® Core i7 processor, NVIDIA® GeForce GTX980M graphics and is the world’s first gaming laptop to integrate a mechanical keyboard. Joint engineering and software development between MSI and SteelSeries promise ultimate comfort for long gaming sessions while switches from mechanical switch specialist Cherry guarantee long-time reliability.
With new Extreme Range Technology on KillerTM Wireless-AC 1535, GT80 users are now free to enjoy stable wireless Internet connectivity at higher speeds and at greater distances from their access points. The GT80 is also the best SLI platform to support very smooth surround view with a maximum resolution of 5760×1080 for extreme gaming experience.
Eye-tracking is poised to alter the gaming landscape over the next several years, ushering in a new era of deeper game immersion where the bandwidth between gamer and game is increased and experiences become more realistic. Tobii has identified four key applications, or immersions, in games that will change the way gamers interact and enjoy their games: Infinite Screen (as seen in Assassin’s Creed Rogue), Multidimensional Movement, Response to Eye-Contact and Immersive Graphics and Sound.
