MSI unveils updated GT60 notebooks with 15.6-inch 3K displays

MSI today has unveiled a few new additions to their GT60 line of high-powered (and expensive) laptops. The change that sets them apart is their displays, both featuring 15.6-inch 3K screens with a resolution of 2880×1620 (that would be 4,665,600 pixels, versus the 1920×1080 resolution and 2,073,600 pixels found in most existing high-end laptops). Mind you, the MacBook Pro with retina display has a slightly higher resolution at 2880×1800, mainly due to the 16:10 aspect ratio, versus 16:9. Regardless, that’s quote a pixel density for a somewhat small screen. The only real difference between the two is down to their GPU, with the GTX 780M (4GB GDDR5 VRAM) given to the $2,199.99 GT60 2OD-261US, while a workstation-class Quadro K3100M goes to the $2,799.99 GT60 2OKWS-278US. Specific specifications and more information can be found at the product links above.
