MSI GT72 Dominator Pro Gaming Notebook Comes with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M or GTX 870M

Looking for a gaming notebook and you want to squeeze all the power you possible can under its hood? MSI has just rolled out the latest addition to its Dominator Pro lineup of advanced gaming systems.

The GT72 Dominator Pro takes design cues from matte-black racing super cars, offering customers what can be considered a highly aesthetic device. The laptop has been released as a reaction to the increasingly competitive gaming market, which tends to spurt out more and more heavily packed gaming devices, all cramped up under a sleek form factor. We should start the specification tour by saying that the laptop arrives with a 17.3-inch Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution. The new device takes advantage of the high-end NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M or GTX 870M graphics card in order to transform the device into a gaming-ready machine. MSI says that compared to the previous-gen GTX 780M and GTX 770M, the new GPU architecture manages to boost performance by up to 15% (as proved by 3D Mark 11 standard tests).

What’s interesting is that the press-release doesn’t reveal the exact nature of the processor living under the hood. We are dealing with a Haswell i7 chip, but its exact specifications are unknown. A while ago, MSI rolled out the MSI G70 Dominator Dragon Edition which draws life from an Intel Core i7-4810MQ clocked at 2.7GHz. Anyway, going back to the GT72, MSI points out that this is the first laptop in the world to come boasting Killer DoubleShot Pro. This system offers support for both Killer Gb LAN and Wi-Fi 802.11ac protocol. It will deliver average latency improvements of 3.5 times higher than laptops supporting 802.11ac.

The machine utilizes the Killer Network Manager to tap into the Smart Teaming function and from there provide optimization of bandwidth usage between Wi-Fi and Gb LAN. The laptop also boasts Super RAID 3 technology with 4 SSD RAID 0, so the data read/write speed can reach up to 1600MB/sec or more. The device should be able to handle everything you throw at it, and since it benefits from the Cooler Boost 3 tech, it should do so quite noiselessly. Cooler Boost works in order to improve fan speed, keep CPU temperature and noise at optimal levels so that game playing isn't hindered.

Other specifications we should draw your attention to are Xplit Gamecaster (for online game streaming), SteelSeries keyboard with backlit keys, and Matrix multi-display tech which lets you connect the laptop to up to 3 external display (steaming up to 4K). It seems like the MSI website, lists the Intel Core i7-4710HQ chip as the only option for the new Dominator Pro. Anyway, prices seems to be started at $2,599 / €1,945.
