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.
As you all know, Intel announced the launch of its much anticipated 22nm Ivy Bridge processors earlier today. Intel is counting on these third-generation Core processors for the success of ultrabooks, which it hopes will be able to check the rampant growth of tablets and, in the process, conquer a large chunk of the mobile PC market. But ultrabooks will not be the only products to make use of Ivy Bridge chips; there will also be plenty of all-in-ones, desktops and notebooks. In all, over 570 Ivy Bridge-toting systems are expected to ship in 2012. The MSI GT70 and GT60 are two such products. Hit the jump for more.
