Labs Brief: MSI GT70 Dominator Pro

Labs Brief: MSI GT70 Dominator Pro

MSI's latest gaming laptop is expensive, but undeniably powerful.

Sporting the latest GPU is a hallmark of MSI’s gaming laptop range, and its newest model is no exception, with the Nvidia GTX 880M at its core. Not only that, but MSI has equipped it with 8GB of GDDR5 graphics memory. In every other respect this beast generally exceeds even the most extreme desktop gaming PCs, and all in a somewhat portable package.

The CPU is an i7-4810MQ and our review model came with 3x128GB SSDs, as well as a 1TB hard drive. MSI didn’t skimp with memory, including 32GB. All of this explains the rather high asking price, but remember it can be customised with lesser but still capable innards. We’ve got the most outrageously specced model, and boy is it impressive. No shortcuts have been taken, there’s an optical drive, Killer LAN controller, and a pair of semi-decent speakers built-in, along with a subwoofer of the rather small variety. The audio is great for mid-volume media and gaming, but if you want to crank it right up headphones are the go.

The GT70 Dominator Pro is encased in the same chassis as the last model (GX70), and its styling is a bit extreme, some will love it, others may think it a bit excessive.
