Found in: Work Laptops

The 17.3" WT72 Workstation Notebook from MSI is designed for professionals looking to start modeling and creating content in virtual reality. It's powered by a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-6820HK Quad-Core processor and 32GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM that enables you to efficiently multitask as well as quickly access frequently used files and programs. When handling heavy workloads which require additional processing power, the CPU's core clock can reach up to 3.6 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. To further increase this system's performance, you can upgrade the RAM to a max of 64GB (16GB per slot).

Its 17.3" IPS display, driven by a NVIDIA Quadro 5500 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5, has a 1920 x 1080 resolution for crisp and clear visual content. The graphics card is NVIDIA VR Ready and incorporates a variety of NVIDIA exclusive technologies designed to maximize your VR experience. Furthermore, it is compatible with existing VR systems such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. You'll also be able to connect additional displays using its HDMI and Mini-DisplayPort. To increase your efficiency and productivity, the WT72 is equipped with two 128GB PCIe SSDs utilizing NVMe technology. SSDs are constructed without any moving parts and can thus endure more and perform faster than the traditional hard drive. With it, you'll be able to boot up and load programs in seconds. The WT72 also has a larger 1TB 7200 rpm SATA HDD for long term storage of all your data, multimedia content, and work files.

Should you run out of room, you can connect additional external storage drives and peripherals via its six USB 3.0 ports. You can also pair compatible wireless devices using Bluetooth 4.1 technology. An SD media card reader offers increased storage capacity as well as easy data transferring between your mobiles devices. Furthermore, the WT72 features a Thunderbolt 3 port, which can charge devices with 5 V at 3 A, connect dual 4K monitors with a single port, as well as transfer data at speeds of up to 40 Gb/s. Since it uses a USB Type-C interface that can be plugged-in in either orientation, you'll no longer have to bother with checking the port or connector.

Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi or the Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet port for a more reliable and stable wired connection. Dual-Band Wi-Fi enables you to connect to the 5 GHz band for faster speeds. On the other hand, Killer Ethernet lets you prioritize your network traffic so you can optimize it to better suit your needs. Other integrated features include a SteelSeries backlit keyboard, a 1080p webcam, speakers, a subwoofer, a microphone jack, and a headphone jack. The pre-installed operating system in this notebook is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

Armed with the NVIDIA Quadro 5500 graphics card, the WT72 is capable of maximizing your VR experience. It has 2048 cores with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM giving it a 35% performance increase over previous models. Additionally, it's equipped with a variety of exclusive NVIDIA technologies such as VRWorks, a rendering technology for VR content called MultiRes Shading, and Content Priority. The WT72 is Autodesk VRED certified and compatible with existing VR systems such as the Oculus rift and HTC Vive.

Windows 10 Pro

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 Microsoft Edge, 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.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
