Skylake is codename of the brand new 14nm micro-architecture of Intel's latest 6th generation processors. The Skylake platform requires lower power consumption but delivers better performance than before. CPU performance of Core i7 6700HQ is 20% faster than i7 4720HQ under average usage. For optional models of GT series, will have special version of Core i7 6820HK with overclock capability from 3.7GHz to over 4GHz, the overclock frequency may differ depends on the CPU capability.
Get in the game before everyone else with the latest PCI-E Gen 3.0x4 bandwidth utilizing NVMe technology on single M.2 SSD. Harness the full performance potential of the Gen 3.0 SSD through the optimization of the hardware and software outputting extreme read speeds up to 2200MB/s, 5x faster than SATA3 SSD's.
Heat is the most original element on earth. It's pure physics that more energy will generate more heat. Cooling is therefore a knotty task to tackle with. MSI exclusive Cooler Boost 3 technology creates dual thermal modules internally by allocating dedicated heat pipes for GPU and CPU. One click on the fan boost button, multiple heat pipes and dual fans actively and effectively push heat out of the system, making the cooling design of this model the highest level of its kind.
The Cooler Boost 3 dual cooling system is developed especially for the next generation extreme mobile processors. Besides making sure your system stays within thermal limits at all times during regular use, users can manually boost the cooling system by a simple key, located to the left side of the keyboard. This will maximize thermal exhaustion and ensure a chilly system even during those marathon gaming sessions. Regardless of how demanding the environment is, your notebook stays quiet and cool.
With components such as the Intel Core i7 Extreme CPUs and NVIDIA GTX 900M series graphics, the cooling is vital for performance, Cooler Boost 3 lowers CPU temperatures with ~8-10°C, and GPU temperatures ~4-5°C. With this new cooling solution, you will see not only lower temperatures than the competition can offer, but also lower total noise levels without the need for bulky coolers. The exclusive MSI "SHIFT" technology pushes system to the extreme while minimizing noise and temperature. Switch between three profiles "Sport," "Comfort," and "Green" to reach balance between system performance and comfortable user experience.
The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 970M Series brings extreme, next-generation graphics performance to serious gaming notebooks. As the first graphics solution to reach a score over 9,000 in 3DMark 11, the GeForce GTX 970M delivers extremely fast and fluid gameplay at the highest settings and resolutions in a lightweight and portable design.
Whatever you need, you can get it done with just one Super Port. Transfer massive files faster than ever with up to 1000MB/s transfer rates. Get more pixel power supporting dual 4K displays and extend your field of view with daisy chain capabilities. Even charge your phones, tablet and any device faster on-the-go or at home (support up to 3A current).
MSI True Color Technology guarantees that each panel in a MSI notebook comes with the finest precision in color. After examination and an extensive factory calibration process by the MSI True Color Technology, the panel quality will be more accurate, close to 100% sRGB. Hence, each color is delivered with the highest standard precision in detail, guaranteeing excellent color fidelity for many use applications.
