MSI WS60 overview

  • 1Description

Thin at 0.71" and weighing 4.36 lb, the aluminum black 15.6" WS60 Mobile Workstation is designed for CAD, 3D modeling, multiple application data processing, 4K video transcoding, and more. It is powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor, and using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the processor is capable of boosting to 3.5 GHz if more power is needed. The 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.

The 15.6" eDP display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution, a wide viewing angle (WVA), and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro M2000M graphics card has 4GB of discrete GDDR5 RAM and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You'll also be able to output video to an external display using the system's DisplayPort 1.2 output via the Thunderbolt 3 port, as well as its HDMI 1.4 and Mini DisplayPort outputs. Using Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, the WS60 supports dual 4K displays at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160.

For storage of your files, this WS60 is equipped with both a 128GB PCIe SSD and a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive. While the SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of the 1TB hard drive, it contains no moving parts, which helps it to be more resistant against bumps, drops, and other kinds of damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear than traditional hard drives, as they never come into contact with read and write heads. Additionally, as this SSD connects via PCIe as compared to SATA, it is able to operate with even greater data transfer speeds, with reads up to 2,200 MB/s.

If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the WS60 offers one USB Type-C connector that supports 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 and 10 Gb/s USB 3.1. Additionally, there are two 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are also built-in for wired and wireless networking and Bluetooth 4.1 technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. So that content from memory cards may be accessed, a built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader lets users download content from their digital camera. Other integrated features include a 1080p webcam, a microphone, and four Dynaudio speakers.

The 15.6" WS60 Mobile Workstation includes a 150W AC adapter a 6-cell battery pack. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Professional (64-bit).
