GTC 2016 - With NVIDIA unveiling its new Quadro M5500 video card, MSI is the world's first with an NVIDIA VR ready professional mobile workstation, with its new WT72.
The new MSI WT72 packs the Quadro M5500 with 8GB of GDDR5, as well as Intel's new sixth-generation Core processors (available in both the Core and Xeon CPUs) with up to 64GB of DDR4. Andy Tung, President of MSI Pan America explains: "The WT72 with NVIDIA's M5500 Quadro GPU is the world's first VR Ready mobile workstation and can blaze through the most demanding tasks. NVIDIA powers our workstations, from the ultra-powerful WT72 to the super lightweight WS72 and WS62, and we are delighted to partner with them to drive the VR revolution into a new dimension".
MSI's new WT72 is Autodesk VRED certified and is compatible with both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. It comes with audiophile-grade Dynaudio speakers with Nahimic Audio enhancer, True Color Technology screens with Adobe RGB certification for wide viewing angles and the most accurate visuals.
Better yet, it features a SteelSeries backlit keyboard with Silver-Living Print to wipe away that eye strain. Connectivity wise, we have the insanely fast Thunderbolt 3 as well as USB 3.1, and a dual fan design that will keep the MSI WT72 as cool as possible.
The MSI WT72 starts at $5499 with the Core i7-6700Q, and can ramp up quickly to $6899 with the Xeon E3-1505M v3 processor and 64GB of ECC DDR4-2133 RAM.
