From this month until July, MSI is giving you no reason not to game in spite of schoolwork and monsoon rains. MSI is bringing to you its full roster of gaming laptops powered by Intel's latest 8th Generation Core processors. Let's take a quick look at the models.

MSI GE73 Raider RGB 8RE-278PH

This laptop features a 17.3-inch FHD wide-view display backed by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics with 6GB GDDR5 memory. Powered by a six-core Intel Core i7-8750H processor clocked at 2.20GHz (4.10GHz max Turbo) coupled with 16GB DDR4 RAM which can be upgraded up to 32GB. Windows 10 boots up quickly on its 256GB NVMe SSD, supported by a standard 2.5-inch HDD. A six-cell (51Whr) lithium-ion battery juices up this behemoth of a laptop. This model is priced at PhP 119,995.

MSI GT83 8RG-042PH Titan

Consistent with its Titan moniker, this gaming machine dwarfs the raider with its 18.4-inch FHD IPS display with graphics pushed by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU with 8GB GDDR5X RAM. Complementing the powerful GPU is an Intel Core i7-8850H CPU clocked at 2.60GHz (4.30GHz max Turbo) matched with 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM. Main storage is supported by a 512GB NVMe SSD coupled with a 2.5-inch HDD. Juicing up the Titan's powerful components is an eight-cell battery. This laptop model costs PhP 349,995.

MSI GP63 Leopard 8RE-257XPH/8RE-258XPH

The 15.6-inch Leopard gaming laptop roars with the same CPU-GPU combination as the Raider with 8GB DDR4 RAM. Matching its competitive character, this laptop features a sporty design A cover with assymetric C palm rest. This machine makes use of MSI's Cooler Boost 5, coming with four air vent holes, two fans, and seven heatpipes to keep heat at bay. The compelling graphics that the Leopard offers is paired with immersive sound supplied by giant speakers and upgraded Nahimic 3. The 257XPH costs PhP 96,995 (Free DOS)/PhP 103,995 (Windows 10), whereas the 258XPH sells for PhP 85,995 (Free DOS)/PhP 93,995 (Windows 10).

MSI GV62 8RD-066PH/8RD-067PH

MSI's GV62 series with 8th Generation Intel Core CPUs comes with two models. The GV62 8RD-066PH is expected to carry the powerful i7-8750H, whereas we can expect the i5-8300H on its 067PH variant. While in no difference, both machines are packed with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU. The combination of their CPU and GPU plus the Cooler Boost 4 is nearly perfect for everyday gaming and content creation. The 066PH is priced at PhP 69,995, while the 067PH sells for PhP 58,995.

Now available in select MSI concept stores and authorized resellers, all 8th Generation MSI gaming notebooks come with an exclusive software installed, particularly Dragon Center v2.0, in which Gaming Mode is present.
