The 18.4" GT83 Titan Notebook from MSI is a hefty, desktop-replacement sized system designed with the performance and aesthetics for gamers. Specs-wise, it has a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-8850H six-core processor, 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080s with 8GB of GDDR5X VRAM in SLI. With dual GPUs, you should be able to max out most games, especially on its 1920 x 1080 Full HD display. Moreover, it has Thunderbolt 3, HDMI, and mini DisplayPort outputs if you wish to play on a larger external display.
For storage, it's equipped with two 512GB NVMe SSDs configured in Super RAID 4, which is essentially RAID 0, and a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive. To squeeze more into this system, you can install two additional 16GB RAM modules, bringing its total capacity to a max of 64GB. Should you need more storage, you can connect external storage devices using its multiple USB ports. Other integrated features include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Gigabit LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, a mechanical backlit Cherry MX silver keyboard, a webcam, speakers, a subwoofer, an SDXC media card reader, a Blu-ray burner drive, and audio jacks. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home (64-Bit).
NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series Graphics Card
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards can deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. Not only are they powerful, they can deliver similar performance to their desktop counterparts with a slight performance difference. This changes mobile gaming, allowing you to max out your game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best. Moreover, this graphics card is VR-ready so you can use it with your favorite VR headset.
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
Windows 10 Home
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.
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.
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 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.
