It never takes long for system builders to release products based around new hardware releases, and with Nvidia having just launched its GTX 800M series of GPUs, you can expect to see a handful of new gaming laptops over the next several days. To kick things off, MSI today unveiled a pair of well-equipped gaming laptops configured with Nvidia's latest silicon. They include the 16-inch GE Apache and 17-inch GT Dominator.

The GE Apache comes configured with either a GeForce GTX 850M or 860M GPU, while the larger GT Dominator offers GTX 870M and 880M GPU options. Both systems feature Intel Core i7 Haswell hardware inside, along with Killer LAN networking, SteelSeries backlit keyboard, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Super RAID 2 technology (allows users to combine three mSATA SSDs for read speeds of up to 1,500MB/s), and more.

MSI's new gaming laptops also incorporate XSplit Gamecaster, a software solution that automatically detects the best streaming settings for the notebook and ISP. XSplit Gamecaster allows gamers to add, resize, and position a webcam feed, draw on screen, and modify videos.

The GT Dominator and GE Apache are available starting at $1,500 and $1,300, respectively.
