Intel Core i7-4710HQ paired up with Nvidia GTX880M

MSI has unveiled yet another gaming notebook with performance that makes it more of a desktop replacement rather than your average notebook.

The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro is designed around a 17.3-inch FullHD 1920x1080 resolution anti-reflective screen and packed in a completely redesigned one-piece aluminum chassis which is less than 2 inches (5cm) thick. Based on Intel's HM87 chipset with Intel Core i7-4710HQ Haswell-based quad-core CPU with Hyper-threading clocked at 2.5GHz base and 3.4GHz Turbo Boost clocks as well as Nvidia Geforce GTX 880M GPU with 8GB of GDDR5 memory, it is quite obvious that the Dominator GT72 will definitely pack some serious performance.

The rest of the specs include two different storage options including four M.2 128GB SSDs in RAID 0 paired up with 1TB HDD or two M.2 128GB SSDs in RAID 0 with 1TB HDD, either 32GB or 24GB of DDR3L 1600MHz system memory, Blu-ray optical drive, Killer E2200 Ethernet and Killer N1525 Wireless-AC WiFi, Dynaudio speakers with sub-woofer, six USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and mini DisplayPort outputs and a 9-cell battery.

The precise dimensions are set at 42.8x29.4x4.7cm and it weighs 3.9kg. Since the GT72 Dominator Pro is a gaming notebook, MSI decided to equip it with a keyboard that is co-developed with SteelSeries and which not only offers fully customizable backlight and keys, but also a solid and tactile keyboard.

According to MSI, the new GT72 Dominator will be available in two SKUs which differ in the amount of system memory and storage options and the price for the top GT72 Dominator Pro-007 SKU with 32GB of DDR3 memory and four 128GB SSDs in RAID 0 is set at US $2,999.99 while the one with 24GB of DDR3 memory and two 128GB SSDs will set you back at US $2,599.99.
