It ‘the first time that we have the opportunity to look closely (live) mobile workstation MSI WT72 6QN, launched last April by the Taiwanese to meet the needs of graphics professionals (architects, engineers and designers), but also for those seeking a viable gaming platform for virtual reality. Not surprisingly, MSI WT72 6QN 4K TEST is one of the first notebook capable of meeting the requirements imposed by Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, then certificate for the VR.
It owes its capabilities especially in the Nvidia Quadro graphics card M5000M with 8GB of GDDR5 memory on board, a mobile GPU that has passed tests with the most powerful vision, but also the rest of the budget is no exception: this workstation can be integrated depending SKU i7-6700HQ Intel Core processors, Core i7-6820HK, i7-6920HQ and Xeon E3-1505M v5 (Skylake), flanked by (up to) 64GB DDR4 RAM memory from 2133MHz (ECC-enabled for Xeon) and various storage solutions, SATA hard drive and 1TB 7200RPM combined SSD to 256GB, which is usually the OS is installed. The model that we face has a 17.3 inch screen with a resolution of 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels), but they are already on the market configurations with full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels).
Although the Taiwanese company announced an entry price of $ 5,499 for the entry-level Core SKU i7-6700HQ, the MSI WT72 6QN version i7-6820HK Core, 32GB of RAM and Full HD display is already on the market at a price of $ 4999, very interesting considering the specifications.
All models are equipped with a Blu-Ray burner, six USB 3.0 ports and a Thunderbolt 3, as well as a HD webcam on the display. On board also the typical SteelSeries backlit keyboard, Killer E2400, Dynaudio speakers and other classic features that we usually find in gamestation MSI but above all on workstations as certifications and optimizations for professional programs such as SolidWorks, AutoCAD, Adobe and Maya.
At present MSI WT72 6QN 4K TEST is not yet available for sale on the European market (and consequently Italian), nor do we know whether his fall distribution in the Taiwanese company plans. We hope and we will keep you updated on upcoming news.
