by Reads (6,083)

MSI_GT72As we previously leaked in our sneak peak article, MSI officially unveiled the GT72 Dominator Pro gaming notebook today starting at $2,599.99. The new GT72 Dominator Pro replaces the GT70 Dominator in MSI’s gaming notebook line with a new Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M discrete graphics, Killer DoubleShot Pro, Super RAID, and more.

The GT72 Dominator Pro features a brand new one-piece aluminum chassis design measuring less than 2 inches thick with customizable lighting effects and an all-new cooling system. The updated thermal design now features dual fans for moving hot air away from the notebook to improve system stability and performance while remaining quieter than a single fan moving at higher RPMs.

The GT72 Dominator Pro is also the first gaming notebook equipped with Killer DoubleShot Pro, combining both Killer E2200 Game Networking and Killer N1525 Wireless-AC to deliver faster data connections by automatically prioritizing which programs should run on which connection, freeing your network’s available bandwidth for lag-free gaming.

As with MSI’s previous gaming notebooks, MSI has once again partnered with SteelSeries to develop a custom LED-backlit keyboard, and the SteelSeries Engine software allows users to customize and program every key. The GT72 Dominator Pro also features a large 17.3-inch Full HD Anti-Reflective screen, MSI’s Audio Boost technology, and Dynaudio speakers with subwoofer.

    The design is an improvement compared to the older model. This improved design should carry on to other models (GE,GX,GT), both on 15 & 17 inch model.
