MSI is looking to blaze a new path in mobile gaming with the announcement of the GT80 Titan gaming laptop. While the computer builder is quiet about almost everything packed into the new laptop, outside of Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics, it revealed that it will feature a SteelSeries mechanical keyboard. The company claims that the GT80 Titan "is the world's first and only notebook equipped with a gaming mechanical keyboard."
MSI has announced the launch of another machine in its gaming notebook series, the GS30 Shadow. The 13.3-inch notebook with a 2560x1440 resolution features a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor with Intel's Iris Pro graphics. While the new device in news on its own, MSI also announced that it was developing the GamingDock, a large laptop dock produced specifically for the GS30 to access a discrete graphics card.
During Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, a number of hardware companies made official announcements to line up with Intel's release of the Haswell Extreme Edition processors. MSI had a big presence at the expo, including the display of three of its X99 motherboards and laptops like the GT72 Dominator Pro for use in tournaments.
Computer hardware manufacturer MSI has unveiled a new work-focused notebook running Windows 7 Professional, which it touts as being thin and light for a portable workstation. Spiritual successor to the GS60 gaming notebook and weighing in 4.36 pounds and measuring under 0.8 inches thick, the WS60 boasts an Intel Core i7 processor clocked at 3.4GHz, with a choice of 15.6-inch 16:9 displays including a 2880x1620 resolution option and a 1080p version with eDP Wide View Angle technology.
Computer hardware manufacturer MSI released a beefy new notebook today that's positioned to be a "desktop replacement" for gamers. The new 17.3-inch GT72 Dominator Pro notebook packs its power in a one-body aluminum case to give gamers the hardware they need to step into a game in any location.
MSI is bringing gaming to those that need an all-in-one solution with its latest line of gaming PCs. With three models for consumers to choose from, the Intel powered machines offer displays starting at 21-inches to fit most desktop spaces.
MSI has started to ship its GS60 Ghost Pro 3K and GS70 Stealth Pro gaming notebooks in the United States. The larger GS70 Stealth Pro, a follow-up to a notebook released last year, offers a non-reflective 17.3-inch Full HD display, while the GS60 Ghost Pro, revealed in March, opts for a smaller 15.6-inch screen with a higher WQHD+ 3K resolution of 2880x1620.
MSI has used the CeBIT trade show in Germany to tease a new gaming notebook in its GS range, one which can be supplied with a high-resolution display. The GS60 Ghost Pro measures three quarters of an inch thick and weighs 4.4 pounds, yet manages to squeeze in a 15.6-inch screen with resolution options ranging from Full HD to 3K, namely a resolution of 2,880x1,620.
MSI has introduced a new 15.6-inch notebook, the GT60, featuring a 2880x1620 display to compete with Apple's Retina MacBook Pros and other high-resolution portables. Two variants are available, one configured as a workstation and the other geared for gaming.
MSI has introduced three new notebooks that are said to be geared for gaming, entertainment and mobile productivity. Two GP60 models integrate 15.6-inch displays, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce discrete graphics and a choice between a 3.0GHz Core i5 processor or 3.2 GHz Core i7 chip. The basic package offers 1366x768 resolution, while the i7 variant steps up to a 1920x1080 panel with an antiglare finish.

Cirrus creates Lightning-headphone dev kit
Apple supplier Cirrus Logic has introduced a MFi-compliant new development kit for companies interested in using Cirrus' chips to create Lightning-based headphones, which -- regardless of whether rumors about Apple dropping the analog headphone jack in its iPhone this fall -- can offer advantages to music-loving iOS device users. The kit mentions some of the advantages of an all-digital headset or headphone connector, including higher-bitrate support, a more customizable experience, and support for power and data transfer into headphone hardware. Several companies already make Lightning headphones, and Apple has supported the concept since June 2014. http://bit.ly/29giiZj

Apple employees testing wheelchair features
New features included in the forthcoming watchOS 3 are being tested by Apple retail store employees, including a new activity-tracking feature that has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll" and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. http://bit.ly/2955JDa
