MSI has a new mobile workstation on the market, and it sports a bit of stealthy style. Called the WS65, the laptop looks to be a step up from MSI's current WE63, complete with a sleek black exterior, copper accents, and the debut of MSI's new workstation logo on the rear of the lid.
As for the what's powering the heavy workloads that workstations are designed to tackle, MSI has gone with Intel's 8th Gen Core i9 processor and up to NVIDIA Quadro P4200 graphics. That's backed up by an 82Whr battery that MSI claims can hit up to eight hours of battery life, along with PCI-e SSD and SATA combo storage options. Unfortunately, MSI isn't talking exact storage capacities or RAM just yet.
Up front, you'll find a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, which the company claims can hit 72 percent coverage of the NTSC color gamut. Ports include three USB 3.1 Type-A ports, a single USB Type-C, one HDMI, and one mini Display Port.
The WS65 will be available this September, MSI says, but pricing is a mystery for now.
Aside from the WS65, gamers have something to look forward to from MSI today as well. The company says its new Optix curved monitors, which feature 144Hz refresh rates and 1ms response times, are now available. Both models also work with MSI's Gaming On-Screen Display software, which you can use to control settings from your desktop.
