For extreme gaming the MSI GT83 Titan SLI S enthusiasts is the giant of the category not only for its size “bloated”, but also to the power that hides beneath the chassis. We have not information about the SKU for the Italian market, either on their prices and availability to the public, but according to what is released by the Taiwanese Computex 2016 in Taipei, the gamestation will be on sale in the US for August at a starting price of $ 4,500.

MSI GT83 Titan SLI S is a simple refresh of the MSI GT80 Titan SLI, which we crossed several times at the fair last year, not only because it has a more powerful hardware equipment of the previous model but also because it incorporates some “additional” solutions more recent and effective, as a renewed cooling system. The name “GT83 S” also indicates that its thickness has been reduced, but at the moment we can not be more precise.
