MSI GT72S Dominator G(-037) 17.3″ Gaming Laptop with 6th Gen Intel Core, Nvidia 970M, NVMe


MSI GT72S Dominator G(-037)

MSI GT72S Dominator G(-037) is a high-performance 17.3-inch gaming laptop with the Nvidia GTX 970M 3GB video card, 6th Generation Intel Core i7-6820HK Skylake quad-core processor, and Nvidia G-Sync technology. However, the star of the show is its extremely fast solid state drive data storage system based on NVMe technology.

NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) combined with PCI-E Gen 3.0×4 bandwidth on single M.2 SSD outputs read speeds up to 2200MB/s, according to MSI. It’s five times faster than the common SATA3 SSD’s. This enables games to “load in seconds”. Capacity of the included SSD in the GT72S Dominator G-037 (9S7-178211-037) model is 128GB. It’s accompanied by an old-school 1-Terabyte 7,200rpm hard drive. The advanced storage system is the main difference between the GT72S and GT72 series, which lacks NVMe.

The 17.3-incher has Full HD 1920×1080 resolution and IPS wide viewing angle technology. Other important specifications are 16GB of DDR4 2133MHz memory, DVD writer, SteelSeries keyboard with customizable backlight color and programmable keys, stereo speakers with subwoofer, a fast USB 3.1 Type-C port, six standard USB 3.0 ports, HDMI a mini DisplayPort video connectors, gaming-optimized networking with Killer Gigabit LAN and Killer 802.11 a/c WiFi, a 1080p web camera, SD media card reader, Bluetooth 4.1, and a 9-cell battery.
