If you are looking for a new ultrabook, check out MSI’s sliding Windows 8 ultrabook, now ready for pre-order. If you have about $1100 to spare.
The MSI S20 Ultrabook looks like a thick tablet at first, until you slide out the keyboard from under the display. Then you have a slim notebook with a screen that has been locked in place at a 45 degree angle. The MSI S20 is up for pre-order from ExcaliberPC for $1099.
Word is that it is being shipped in Europe for around €999. It has an Intel Core i5-3317U processor, an 11.6” 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS display, 4GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD, along with a couple of USB 3.0 ports and a mini HDMI port.
The Windows 8 all-in-one arena is already pretty crowded, but if MSI’s new model had to fight it out with the rest battle-bot style, then it might just come out on top. That’s because the Wind Top AE2712 comes with MSI’s usual military class components, alongside a brutish 27-inch 1080p display with ten-finger touch, Core i3 or i5 processors and optional NVIDIA GeForce GT630M graphics (on the ‘G’ model). Also included is the company’s Smart Media cloud that lets you share data with DNLA-enabled TVs and mobile devices. The PC’s already popped up on Amazon UK with a £830 sticker and November 9th ship date, so if you need an AIO tough enough to withstand, say, an all-out rugrat assault, check out the source link.

Dopo i rumors e le prime apparizioni di qualche settimana fa, debutta ufficialmente sul mercato la nuova scheda video MSI GeForce GTX 660 HAWK, proposta custom pensata per la fascia medio-alta del mercato. Per quanto riguarda le caratteristiche, il produttore ha optato per una GPU impostata a 1085 MHz (1150 MHz in boost mode) e 2 Gigabyte di Memoria GDDR5 a 6 GHz e bus a 192 bit.
We can’t say that there’s a huge cross-section of buyers who want a gaming laptop but refuse to touch Intel components. Whatever the size, MSI likely has that group sewn up with the official unveiling of the GX60 following a stealth appearance at Computex. The 15.6-inch portable is built as showcase for AMD’s latest mobile technology: it revolves around a 2.3GHz, quad-core A10-4600M processor using the Piledriver architecture as well as a Radeon HD 7970M to feed its 1080p screen at full speed. Thankfully, the PC is more than just a marketing vehicle and carries some of the gamer-tuned parts that we’ve seen in other MSI rigs, such as dual SSDs in a RAID stripe, a low-lag Killer networking chipset and a heavy-duty SteelSeries keyboard. Buying a GX60 may prove to be the real obstacle — in keeping with most MSI introductions, there’s no mention of a price or ship date, and none of the usual suspects have it in stock as of this writing.
MSI introduced the GT60 and GT70 notebooks in March, and the latter has already received an upgrade to NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 675M GPU. Now both laptops are taking another step up, this time to the GeForce GTX 680M, NVIDIA’s latest GPU, with 4GB of dedicated memory. The refreshed 16-inch GT60 and 17-inch GT70 are available in the US today for $1,899 and $2,599, respectively. Specs remain the same aside from the revved-up GPU; both models come standard with an Intel Core i7-3610QM CPU, a 1,920 x 1,080 display, HDMI output, a Killer E2200 LAN card and three USB 3.0 ports. For more info, head to the press release below the break.

Some of our readers will remember the MSI Slider S20 that was announced at Computex earlier this month, according to a recent report the device may launch in October and will apparently retail between $799 and $899.
The MSI Slider S20 is a hybrid tablet and ultrabook device, it features an 11.6 inch touchscreen display and also comes with a QWERTY keyboard, it features a sliding display which converts the device between a tablet and an ultrabook.
As a reminder of the hardware, the MSI Slider will come with an Intel IVY Bridge processor and 4GB of RAM, there will also be Bluetooth 4.0 and HDMI, plus USB 3.0.
You wait for one Thunderbolt-compatible motherboard and then two decide to arrive on the same day. Going alphabetically, ASUS’ P8Z77-V Premium is its first Intel-certified board to pack Thunderbolt and it’s followed immediately by the P8Z77-V Pro / Thunderbolt. The connection will hook up to multiple storage drives or any Thunderbolt-friendly display — it can be daisy-chained to up to six different devices. MSI’s Z77A-GD80 packs a similarly complicated naming convention (although it’s not yet certified by Intel) and like ASUS’ offerings, will arrive with Intel’s Z77 chipset ready to play nice with those new 22nm processors. Alongside storage and monitor support, MSI also throws in the extra nugget that it’ll connect to a graphics card, if you’re so inclined. The full technical breakdown on both motherboards is housed after the break.
Thunderbolt’s 10-gigabit interface is only just making its way to Windows after spending more than a year as a Mac-only feature, so it’s not surprising that a lot of questions surround how well the Apple- and Intel-developed connection works for those of a Microsoft persuasion. A thorough test at AnandTech of one of the first motherboards to support the spec on Windows PCs, an Ivy Bridge-ready board from MSI, has shown some positive signs along with a few flies in the high-speed ointment. The good news? Most general storage devices will work as expected with a minimum of fuss, and you can even get some features of Apple’s Thunderbolt Display working if you’re willing to accept a lack of pre-supplied software brightness controls and USB support. The bad news comes mostly in the absence of true hot-plugging like on the Mac: if a device isn’t plugged into the Thunderbolt port on boot, Windows won’t see it. Professionals who need everything to be just perfect will want to wait, then, but bandwidth lovers will still find something to like if they’re willing to build Thunderbolt-equipped PCs themselves.
Now that Intel’s let the cat out of the bag (and into the Ivy), it’s high time we took a look at what manufacturers are going to do with those fancy new processors. Behold: The MSI GT70 gaming laptop, one of the first gaming beasts out of the door with Intel’s next generation architecture. Living up to its next-gen CES promises, this 17.3-inch behemoth falls squarely in the desktop replacement category, at 8.6 pounds, and packs a new 2.3GHz Core i7-3610QM processor, NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTX 670M chip with 3GB of video memory, 16GB of DDR3 RAM and a fancy RAID 0 dual SSD setup — all wrapped in one hefty, formidable package. So how powerful a combination do Ivy Bridge and NVIDIA make? Let’s find out.
MSI already popped up on the rumor-radar this week, and now it’s confirmed a pair of new gaming laptops at CeBIT. The main difference between the new boys — that we can see so far, at least — is the display, with the GT70 sporting 17 inches against the GT60′s 15. Both rock an eye-tingling rainbow-effect “SteelSeries” keyboard, as well as some gaming focused hardware. If one hard drive simply isn’t enough, then the G-series’ support for two SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration, alongside a regular HD, should definitely keep you going — and support for up to 32 gigs of RAM should help things tick along nicely. We don’t have detailed processor specs to share, unfortunately, and the models that MSI had on-hand at the show were simply mock-ups with older components.
After walking up to the duo, the first thing we noticed is how large they are — especially after spending the day with a handful of Ultrabooks and tablets. The GT60 and GT70 aren’t giants in the gaming world, but compared to other slim form-factor devices on offer, these are absolute monsters. We suspect this isn’t so much of an issue, however, if you are in the market for this type of machine. The large size isn’t wasted, either, with the both housing three USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports (only one for the GT60), an SDHC card slot, and full audio in, out, microphone and headphone ports for audio connectivity, plus an optical drive in each. The final machines will likely have Ivy Bridge processors and are penned in for an April release (provided that Intel’s latest-gen processors hit the market by then). You’ll be able to pick up the GT60 for around €1,999 (about $2,630), with the GT70 coming in at €2,299 (roughly $3,025). Scoot on past the break to catch our hands on with the pair.
Today marks the launch of three new video cards for gaming enthusiasts and overclockers from MSI. All through the video cards use the new AMD R7950 GPU inside and have different cooling solutions and presumably different clock speeds. The coolest of three cards uses MSI’s custom Twin Frozr cooling solution.
That custom cooling solution promises 10°C lower temperatures and 13.7 dB less noise than traditional cooling systems. Better cooling means higher clock speeds to overclockers. MSI claims that you can overclock up to 37.5% more with the custom cooling solution.
It’s not clear what the clock speeds are on any of the new video cards. We do know that the video cards use military class III components for durability and stability. They also have special Hi-c capacitors with eight times the lifespan of normal solid-state capacitors. That means that the cards can be overclocked and still last longer than some other similar products.
Another day, another behemoth of a laptop packing some super-charged components for the demanding, but mobile, gamer out there. Underneath the hood of the MSI GT783 series is a quad-core 2.2GHz Core i7 2670QM along with a 2GB GTX 580M GPU for some pixel-punishing performance. Both machines also boast a 17.3-inch 1080p screen but, while the cheaper GT783R settles for 12GB of RAM and a pair of 750GB drives in a RAID array, the GT783 ups the ante to 16GB of DDR3 and trades in one of those spinning platters for a 128GB SSD. Both are pretty beastly portables (both figuratively and literally, at 8.6 pounds) and are also available as part of a limited edition bundle featuring Battlefield 3, a headset, a mouse and a few other extras. The GT783R and GT783 are available now for $2,300 and $2,500 respectively but, before you rush off to order yours, check out the PR after the break.
Motherboards sporting Intel’s X79 chipset are finally starting to make a decent dent in the marketplace and, after showing off a pair of optionsat IDF, MSI is back with a model for the serious builders out there. The Big Bang-XPower II comes packing the features you’d expect of any gamer-friendly MoBo, including four-way SLI and CrossFire support, PCIe 3.0, eight DDR3 slots and plenty of extra power connectors for hooking up your high-powered parts. And the company is taking care of overclockers too with military grade components and features like Direct OC, which lets you tweak your CPU’s frequency with the push of a button. Check out the PR after the break and hit up the source for a few more pics.
While MSI wasn’t quite ready to publicly divulge all the details of its forthcoming X79-based motherboards, it was more than happy to give us a teaser. We were shown three upcoming models from the company at IDF, all toting PCI Express 3.0 slots, overclocking buttons and that snazzy UEFI BIOS. The latter makes changing settings a snap, and is carried over from the company’s existing Sandy Bridge boards — it even comes with a button that launches a browser, but unfortunately the machines in the booth weren’t configured to support it. We’ll know more in Q4, but in the meantime a gallery awaits you below, along with a video after the break.
