After the success of the MSI GS60 Ghost gaming laptop, MSI has recently released a 3K variant of the said gaming machine – the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K. Like its predecessors, the Ghost Pro 3K features a slim and sleek design built with a fast and newer 4th Gen. Intel Core i7 quad-core Haswell processor and the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M discrete graphics processor. But that’s not all, this gaming machine also features a nice 15.6-inch display with a WQHD+ 3K resolution at 2880×1620, making images and pictures looks crispier and better. Check out the rest of its features, specifications, price, and where to buy below.
MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K Features
One of the main features and improvements in the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K is its non-reflective wide-view 15.6-inch display that has a WQHD+ 3K resolution at 2880×1620, with 16:9 aspect ratio. That’s a significant improvement compared to a 1920×1080 display. Bigger resolution means, better display quality, crispier text and images, and more space on the screen.
Aside from the powerful and newer Intel Core i7-4710HQ quad-core Haswell processor, the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K is also powered with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M discrete graphics processor with 3GB GDDR5 dedicated memory, the latest generation of graphics processors designed to deliver true PC gaming experience on the go. The GS60 Ghost Pro 3K is MSI’s lightest 15″ notebook and the first 3K display notebook to utilize Mg-Li alloy, an ultra-light, and sturdy material, and delivers high-performance gaming without the weight. The newly equipped 3K display fully embraces NVIDIA graphic capabilities and immerses gamers in an all-new definition of HD gaming at resolutions of 2880×1620, for sharper and more stunning images.
It also features MSI’s Super RAID technology, which provides superior data processing and accessing speed by supporting multiple SSDs and increasing data read/write speeds. MSI’s GS70 Stealth Pro, equipped with the latest Super RAID 2 technology, combines the power of three mSATA SSDs, kicking up read speeds to over 1,500 MB/s or three times faster than high-performance single SSD notebooks and more than 15 times faster than conventional laptops with standard SATA hard drives.
The MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K gaming notebook features an intelligently designed dual-fan cooling system that efficiently lowers system temperature even under the most strenuous gaming sessions. Dual cooling fans draw in air from vents at the top of the notebooks, circulates it through the motherboard and processor, and dissipates it via dual vents at a 45-degree angle that avoids the gamer’s hands when using a mouse. This proprietary cooling system ensures maximum airflow when compared to systems with air intakes on the bottom of the notebooks and creates a better and more enjoyable gaming experience.
