MSI laptops boosted with new 9th-Gen Intel Core i9 processors

Games just got a whole lot faster.

MSI have revealed that their gaming and content creator laptops will receive CPU and GPU upgrades in May, taking advantage of the new generation of Intel Core i9 processors.

Using Intel’s new 9th-gen Core i9 chipsets and NVIDIA GeForce RTX and GTX graphics cards, the company claimed in a press release that the changes will make their laptops 45% faster than their predecessors.

The updated MSI GT Titan sports the new 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9980HK and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. According to preorder listings on Newegg.com, the new model’s base CPU speed (2.4GHz) is slower than its predecessor (8th Gen at 2.9GHz), though the new processor features two more cores and is capable of overclocking up to 5GHz. This is great for newer games like Apex Legends and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.

The content creator line will also receive a new model, the 17-inch P75, alongside a face-lift for the existing 15.6-inch P65. According to preorder listings on Newegg.com, both will feature 9th Gen i9-9980H CPUs out of the box, clocked at 2.3GHz with 8 cores.

Even with 4K UHD displays and GeForce RTX 2070 GPUs, both models still remain lightweight and portable for the artist on-the-go. The P75 weighs in at just 2.25kg, which is impressive for the high-end tech it contains.

“Innovation and technology have always been at the core of MSI and we’ve successfully partnered with leading brands to craft top-notch gaming solutions for our fans,” said Charles Chiang, MSI’s global CEO.

The new line of MSI laptops is currently available for preorder in the United States on Amazon and Newegg.com. MSI have not yet revealed a release date for Australia or New Zealand.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
