just in case anyone missed it.
NVIDIA Live at Computex
Computex kicked off with a bang for one of our main partners, NVIDIA. While no new mobile graphics parts were launched this year, it launched the new high-end offering GeForce GTX 980 Ti on the desktop side of things. The launch event was streamed to the world on Twitch, and featured none other than the NVIDIA CEO himself, Jen-Hsun “Jensen” Huang and a line of other guests.
However, the stream also featured an MSI product – the GT72 featuring nothing less than NVIDIA’s flagship mobile GPU – the GTX 980M. This is visible in plenty of shots during the livestream, which was broadcast in a mix of Chinese and English. Find the full stream here:
GT72 and Computex upgrades
The GT72 is no newcomer, but as you probably already know, we’ve given it upgradability in the shape of upgradable MXM graphics, swappable SSDs and RAM. That doesn’t mean that we’ll just leave it to see itself out, instead we demonstrated two fairly large new technologies on it at Computex: Tobii eye-tracking and NVIDIA G-Sync.
Our co-operation with Tobii hasn’t resulted in a finalized product just yet, but a prototype – and one that works well at that. Basically, it tracks your eye movement and lets you for example control your in-game movement with your eyes – see Laptop Mag’s article on the technology here: http://blog.laptopmag.com/msi-gt72-with-tobii
In addition to this, NVIDIA has launched mobile G-Sync, and we’ve of course implemented this in the GT72. This means you can have tearing-free gameplay on the go for the first time. This is something you’ll be able to find in stores shortly.
Also worth noting is that the GT72 with the new Tobii and NVIDIA tech scored Laptop Magazine’s “Best Laptop of Computex 2015” award, as seen here: http://blog.laptopmag.com/best-computex-2015
Computex in Pictures
For MSI, Computex is always a highlight of June, with tons of international media and other visitors swarming the Nangang Exhibition Hall. We’ve already touched on one of our biggest eye-catchers of 2015, the Tobii eye-tracking equipped GT72, but apart from that, we also had lots of other things going on at our booth as well as participation with partners.
Have a look at our comprehensive picture documentation of our booth in our 150-picture album on Imgur, including goodies such as the GT80 and AIO prototypes such as the AX24, GTX 980 Ti graphics cards and the new X99A Godlike motherboard: http://imgur.com/a/fVrJE#0
