MSI gets into the 10-series battle with their own line of VR-ready gaming laptops. Enter the Dragon: MSI Unleashes New Pascal-Powered Gaming Laptops

MSI has always been known for delivering great gaming hardware, and their latest line of gaming laptops are no exception. With graphics being handled by the latest NVIDIA GTX 10-series, and a partnership with Steel Series, MSI’s new line of laptops offer great value to the hardcore gamer.

Last night, MSI gathered their partners, distributors, and the media to witness their new products firsthand. Aside from showcasing the new gaming laptops, MSI also raffled off a lot of products from partner SteelSeries, as well as XSplit, their livestreaming software partner. The launch also coincides with MSI’s 30th anniversary as a well-known brand gamers the world over recognize and patronize.

The high-end models, the GT83VR Titan SLI and the GT72VR Titan Pro come with MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan technology, a cooling system that boasts has dual powerful Whirlwind blade fans with 29 ultra slim blades and 10~12 heatpipes depend on different models. This gives 30% better airflow to the laptops, and more than keeps up with the cooling demand, especially with the Titan SLI.

All the new laptops come with MSI’s custom software, Dragon Center. This allows users to tweak the performance of their laptops, from fan speed to general and specific system settings and has an app that will allow you to monitor your device’s performance from your phone. It even has a one-click VR Ready option for upcoming VR games.

Without further ado, here are the new laptops with their specs:
