MSI announces the WT72 notebook with Quadro M5500
If we tell you that MSI has announced a new notebook known as WT72, perhaps just a few of you will be really interested. After all, why not – new notebooks come out almost on a daily basis. In this case, however, the WT72 carries something worth noting – this new MSI notebook is the first in the world to come with the recently announced NVIDIA Quadro M5500 graphics card.
The WT72 is actually a mobile workstation and this is why the device comes with really powerful hardware inside. For instance users can get an Intel Core i7-6700HQ (up to 3.5 GHz), an Intel Core i7-6920HQ (up to 3.8 GHz) or a Xeon E3-1505M v5 (up to 3.7 GHz) processor and depending on the chip the rest of the hardware differs. The Core i7-6700HQ version comes with a 17.3-inch display at Full HD resolution, while the other two models feature 17.3-inch screens that work at 3840 x 2160 pixels. In addition the Xeon version of the WT72 can be equipped with up to 64 GB of DDR4-2133 memory, while the other two models can house up to 32 GB of DDR4. The remaining specs are all the same – expect to get a 256 GB SSD, a 1 TB hard drive, Dynaudio speakers, a LED-backlit SteelSeries keyboard, and Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 ports. Needless to say all three models feature NVIDIA’s Quadro M5500 graphics card.
The top configuration with an Intel Xeon E3-1505M processor sells for USD 6899.
