MSI GT72S overview

  • 1Description

While the 17.3" Full HD IPS display on the MSI 17.3" GT72S G Tobii Gaming Notebook is easy on the eyes, it can also use them too. Thanks to eye-tracking sensors that are integrated into the hinge of the notebook, you'll be able to use your eyes to perform actions with characters in select games, such as Assassin's Creed Syndicate, where you can use the Tobii eye-tracking technology to aim weapons and use the signature rope launcher with just your eyes. All visuals are displayed in a 1920 x 1080 resolution and powered by the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM.

The GT72S G Tobii features the MSI Super Port, which is a USB Type-C port. The Super Port supports a 10 Gb/s data transfer rate, dual 4K outputs via DisplayPort 1.2, and mobile device charging (5V @ 3A). The SteelSeries backlit keyboard features mechanical keys for a precise, tactile feel.

The system is powered by a 6th-gen Skylake 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-6820HK quad-core processor. It also has 32GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, a 256GB Gen 3.0 solid state drive, a Blu-ray Disc burner, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, and more.

Windows 10 Home is the installed operating system. Windows 10 Home improves the user experience of Windows with several additions and changes. Cortana, Microsoft's digital assistant, is integrated into Windows 10 and is available to answer questions with information gathered from both your system and the internet. Microsoft Edge replaces Internet Explorer and the Windows Store is now unified to include apps for PCs, tablets, and phones. There is also the Windows Continuum and Xbox One streaming and integration for supported games.

MSI GT72S G Tobii

Integrated Tobii Eye-Tracking Technology
With eye-tracking sensors built into the hinge of the GT72S G Tobii, you'll be able to utilize Tobii eye-tracking technology with select games, such as Assassin's Creed Syndicate, where you can aim weapons and throw the signature rope launcher with just a look. Other features include moving the camera with your gaze and realistically simulating your eyes' reaction to light, such as when the scene becomes overexposed from looking into a dark room with a bright window, as if the character's vision adjusts. The GT72S Tobii also provides eye tracking and facial recognition for biometric authentication using Windows Hello in Windows 10.
Quad-Core 6th-Gen Skylake Intel Core i7 Performance
The Intel Core i7-6820HK processor delivers a stock speed of 2.7 GHz and can boost up to 3.6 GHz as needed, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 6th-gen Skylake processor can cut down on load times and increase your play time. With better battery life and faster data processing than previous-generation Intel processors, you can do more without a hiccup to your performance, whether it's gaming, streaming, or editing your videos.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M Graphics
Built for an immersive gaming experience, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M arms you with industry-leading technologies including dynamic PhysX effects, CUDA, and more. Based on NVIDIA's Maxwell GPU architecture, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M provides optimal performance per watt.
17.3" Full HD Matte IPS Display
The 17.3" display features a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, so you can play 1080p Full HD content natively.
MSI Super Port
Whatever you need, you can get it done with just one Super Port (USB Type-C). Transfer massive files with up to 10 Gb/s transfer rates; get more pixel power with dual 4K display support and extend your field of view with daisy chain capabilities; or even charge your smartphone, tablet, and other mobile device faster on-the-go or at home (support for 5V @ 3A).
PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 SSD
The 256GB SSD can offer read speeds up to 2,200 MB/s by utilizing NVMe technology, which uses multiple PCI-Express Gen 3.0 x4 lanes.
With DDR4-2133 memory, the GT72S G Tobii can achieve a read speed of over 2.9 GB/s and a write speed of 3.2 GB/s. With over 30% faster performance than previous generations DDR3-1600, DDR4-2133 lets you take your gaming experience to the next level.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With it, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
