MSI has just launched its sleek, eye-tracking portable powerhouse GT72S G Tobii laptop, ushering in a new age of innovation to the world of performance mobile gaming.


Not content with just packing in insane high-performance gaming hardware into a portable laptop, MSI went a step further by including Tobii eye-tracking for a new dimension of interactivity. The laptop's Tobii eye-tracking technology has a wealth of practical applications for gaming, letting users switch targets, select objects, and even pause the game with the blink of an eye. The onboard tracking tech is currently supported by games like Arma III, Assassin's Creed; Syndicate, Elite Dangerous, and more.

"The GT72S G Tobii adds another dimension to gaming and provides a level of interaction and immersion never experienced before," says Andy Tung, MSI company president. "Our eyes will no longer be passive players, they will now direct, command and transport us into the future of PC gaming."


As far as specs, MSI's GT72S G Tobii rocks superior hardware like Skylake Intel Core i7 CPUs, 32GB of DDR4 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM, a 1TB HDD and a 256GB SSD for storage, and Windows 10 64-bit. It rocks a 17.3" display at 1920x1080 with G-Sync, and even sports a SteelSeries keyboard as well as a dual-fan Cooler Burst 3 for optimum cooling.

"Tobii and MSI are blazing a new path in gaming and driving the growth of eye-tracking technology by creating new experiences and thinking outside of the box," said Tobii Tech president Oscar Werner. "We encourage and support forward-thinking developers in their mission to create new experiences for not only gaming but streaming and general computing."

The laptop retails for $2,599 over at Newegg, and comes bundled with a free copy of The Division.
