MSI shows off beefy gaming laptop with "3k" resolution

MSI is showing off a thin and light laptop with  an Intel Haswell processor, next-gen NVIDIA graphics, and a 15.6 pixel display with support for resolutions up to 2880 x 1620 pixels. That’s not a resolution you see often, and according to Engadget, it’s something MSI is calling “3K.” But it should help show off just what NVIDIA’s new laptop graphics chips can do — cranking out high quality 3D graphics to that many pixels can’t be easy.

A nice little surprise here at CeBIT: A 15.6-inch laptop from MSI that gave us an early look at one of NVIDIA’s unannounced 2014 laptop GPUs. MSI’s reps at the event wouldn’t reveal anything about the new graphics chip (which we guess is based on NVIDIA’s Maxwell architecture) except that it should be able to handle many of the latest games at high settings on their unit’s optional “3K” (2,880 x 1,620) display. The laptop itself is called the GS60 Ghost Pro and it’s a pleasure to look at and to hold — it’s just three quarters of an inch thick (19.5mm) and 4.4 pounds (1.99kg) in weight. Check out the gallery below and you’ll see that the machine has an understated design that should help it to appeal not only to gamers but also to power users looking for configurations up to Core i7, dual SSD storage (in Super RAID, if you wish) with additional HDD, plus 802.11ac WiFi. Expect units to start shipping in April priced between 1,600 and 2,000 euros ($2,200 to $2,800) depending on your spec choices.
