[2021.05.17] (SYDNEY, Australia) MSI, a leading manufacturer of business, design and gaming technology, is proud to announce its new lineup of laptops powered by the latest Intel® 11th Gen H series processors and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Laptop GPU. Having expanded to creators’ terrain in recent years, MSI has perked up to materialize the concept where design is the bond between dreaming it and doing it through their upcoming virtual event “Tech Meets Aesthetic”. The new laptops continue MSI’s trend of producing top-tier, powerful machines with aesthetic touches that enhance user experience and unleash the inner gamer and creator spirits.

With a 30% performance upgrade over previous models, the high-speed combo of PCIe Gen4, Thunderbolt 4, and Wi-Fi 6E heighten increased enhancements. For the gaming lineup, MSI-exclusive features like “Discrete Graphics Mode” improve graphics performance, while MSI Center allows users to overclock the GPU with ease.

MSI’s new Creator series includes enhanced features like True Pixel QHD+ and Mini LED displays. MSI has also updated their well-loved gaming series, including GE Raider, GP Leopard and GS Stealth laptops. The new Pulse GL, Sword, and Katana GF visual images, designed by international graphic artists, round out the lineup.
