Workstations for users in the creative space aren’t really marketed a lot, but MSI is certainly one that does so. With the three newly launched models – the P65, PS42 and WS65 – MSI shows it hasn’t forgotten this niche of users. Besides the three, MSI also took the opportunity to launch the latest GE75 Raider gaming notebook.
Sleek and elegant, the PS65 comes in either a silver aluminium body or limited edition pearl white chassis with gold accents. It’s a relatively slim and light laptop at 17.9mm in thickness and 1.88kg. To provide it with better colour accuracy, the PS65 uses an IPS panel with 100% sRGB colour gamut. The 15.6-inch display also has a refresh rate of 144Hz and a response time of 7ms, which when combined with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q design GPU, allows users to game during downtime from work. In addition, it will also have an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, a fingerprint sensor, and Thunderbolt 3 support.
Next up is the MSI PS42, a much smaller model that only weighs about 1.19kg. This model comes with a full metallic brushed aluminium body. Its 13-inch body actually houses a 14-inch Full HD screen, achieving this thanks to its 81% screen-to-body ratio. Powered by a more modest Nvidia GeForce MX150, along with an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7, this particular model can’t do any high-end gaming but is sufficient for photo and video editing. Keeping its thin body cool is a dual exhaust cooling system that uses two cooling fans and three heat pipes.
Third of the creators PCs is the WS65 mobile workstation. This one is a 15.6-inch laptop, featuring an attractive black metal body with gold accents. It has greater performance thanks to its 8th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU and Nvidia Quadro P4200 GPU. In addition, it also has 100% sRGB colour gamut for its display, a PCIe SSD and plenty of I/O ports.
Last but not least is the GE75 Raider, a 17-inch powerhouse staring an 8th Gen Intel Core i7, and a desktop-grade Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060/1070, fast PCIe SSD, and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM. It’ll also come with RGB lighting for each key, a 17.3-inch display with 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time, as well as powerful speakers for good audio experience.
