MSI GT70 Dragon Edition Gaming Laptop Review
Over the past few years we have seen some pretty spectacular motherboards and graphics cards from MSI. The Big Bang XPower 2 X79 board
was one particular highlight... what more could you want than a motherboard with bullets for a heatsink??? And on the GPU side the likes of the R7970 Lightning
was one of the best Radeons we have tested, if not the best. So MSI may well be best known for their excellent range of motherboards and GPUs but for the past few years they have also been taking the mobile system market extremely seriously. Whether that meant some interesting ultra-portable systems or the chunkier Core i7 based GT683DXR
there was some real progress being made.
MSI's latest foray into the gaming/enthusiast laptop marketplace is the GT70 Dragon Edition. With components including the latest Ivy Bridge i7 CPU, SSDs in RAID, GTX 675MX Graphics and 16GB of memory in a 17" chassis... and some great extra specifications, today we find out whether the system can play the likes of Far Cry 3 and Hitman: Absolution.
