Finding middle ground between Full HD and 4K gaming
MSI today announced what it claims is the world's first 3K gaming notebook, which hits the market just in time to be added onto your holiday wishlist. The GT60 2OD-261US is a 15.6-inch laptop with a WQHD+ display (2880x1620) that kicks things up a notch over Full HD 1080p without going all the way up to 4K, which would be both more expensive and far more demanding on the hardware.
Just before the holiday weekend in November, MSI posted to its Facebook account a teaser shot showing off a pair of mini ITX gaming products. One was a graphics card and the other a motherboard, but beyond what you could make out in the picture, mum was the word from MSI at the time. Well, MSI is now ready to reveal the full monty. Those of you who guessed the graphics card was a mini ITXGeForce GTX 760, you're awarded 760 geek cred points.
MSI is using Facebook correctly. While Facebook feeds have a tendency to be cluttered with pictures of food and political rants, MSI posted a photo of two unreleased mini ITX gaming products. One is a mini ITX motherboard and the other is a pint-sized graphics card. Both sport a red and black color scheme along with MSI's familiar dragon logo, plus some clues to the feature-sets.
