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.
