MSI Unveils New Line of Gaming Laptops Powered by Intel 8th Generation Processors

MSI, the world leader in gaming hardware, launches a suite of gaming laptops powered by Intel 8th Generation processors, headlined by two models: the new GS65 Stealth Thin gaming notebook and GE Raider RGB Edition. MSI is also announcing new generation processor updates to its GP, GL and GV lines. All of the new laptops will be available for pre-order on April 4-April 16, 2018 at MSI Concept Stores and select MSI Authorized Re-sellers.

“These new models are like nothing the gaming laptop market has seen before,” said Eric Kuo, MSI Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing. “We’re breaking gaming laptop conventions with the Stealth Thin’s beautiful new design and the Raider’s unique RGB lighting.”

GS65 Stealth Thin Gaming Laptop
MSI Laptops
The GS65 Stealth Thin is the first gaming laptop to feature a 144Hz 7ms IPS display with 4.9mm bezels – achieving a stunning 82 percent screen-to-body ratio. While the bezels are extremely thin, MSI did not compromise on the placement of the webcam. MSI left just enough room in the top bezel for the webcam, as opposed to being awkwardly placed within the bottom bezel. With its thin dimensions and golden styling, the MSI GS65 Stealth Thin brings gaming laptops into a new stylish era.
MSI Laptops
To power the 144Hz panel, the Stealth Thin is equipped with up to a GTX 1070 with the latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, which gains up to a 40 percent performance enhancement over the previous generation. With its new processor, GeForce GTX 10 series graphics and MSI Cooler Boost Trinity cooling design, the GS65 offers an uncompromised gaming performance for all gaming enthusiasts.

When designing the Stealth Thin, MSI sought to break all the stereotypes traditionally seen in gaming laptops. MSI chose a bold new golden accent and trim to make the smallest details of the laptop glint. Weighing just 1.8kg, the Stealth Thin packs 8+ hours of battery life into an incredibly slim chassis, providing real portability not traditionally found in powerful gaming laptops. Its 82Whr battery is one of the largest batteries available in a laptop this size.

The Stealth Thin also features a new per-key RGB keyboard designed by SteelSeries. Users can customize each key and receive real-time game status through keyboard lighting. MSI is also rolling out a massive update for Dragon Center 2.0 that comes with an exclusive gaming mode. The redesign brings a sleek new UI that is intuitive while still offering advanced configurations for power users. The gaming mode now optimizes system performance and game-specific keyboard lighting for a list of supported new titles.
MSI Laptops
Stealth Pro Processor Updates

In addition to the new GS65 Stealth Thin, MSI’s entire Stealth Pro line is also getting upgraded with the newest processors. The new processor improves performance by almost 20 percent compared to the previous generation. The new Stealth Pro laptops also feature 102 keys of per-key RGB lighting, smaller fan blades, Dynaudio Certified speakers, upgraded Killer 1550 and Bluetooth v5, and Dragon Center 2.0.

The GS65 Stealth Thin will be available in stores soon; but pre-order will be available on April 4-April 16, 2018 at the following stores nationwide:

GE Raider RGB Edition
MSI Laptops
First announced at CES to high praise, the GE63/73 Raider RGB Edition is inspired by sports cars and the PC Master Race’s love for RGB. It was perfectly crafted for ultra-illumination with RGB lighting on the top cover, keyboard and USB ports. The top cover features 24 separate zones of RGB lighting with more than 16.8 million colors available.

The GE Raider RGB Edition is configurable with up to the latest 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1070 graphics. Additionally, the Raider can be equipped with up to a 120Hz 3ms. This high performance is cooled by MSI Cooler Boost 5, a cooling design with dual fans and seven copper heats pipes offering the most stable experience on a laptop.

With Nahimic 3, Killer networking, Bluetooth 5.0, and much more, the GE Raider comes with many exclusive features and the latest technology under the hood. Both gamers and power users alike can take advantage of the well-refined powerful laptop to enjoy huge boost in gaming experience and productivity. The GE63/73 Raider RGB undoubtedly stands out from the crowd and is surely a choice that’s too shiny to ignore.

Transcend offers full range of embedded-use flash and DRAM products

Transcend Information, Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial-grade products, is proud to offers conformal coating as a customization option on its full range of embedded-use flash and DRAM products to increase their protection against a wide variety of environmental conditions such as moisture, dust, corrosion, and chemical contaminants.
Transcend
Coating Methods
Conformal coatings can be applied via a range of methods including manual brushing, manual spraying, dipping, or by automated spraying machines. Transcend utilizes automated spraying machines for its conformal coating application due to their speed and accuracy. With automated spraying application, Transcend is able to maintain a precise coating thickness with optimal results. 
Transcend
Coating Materials
Due to the wide range of applications that require conformal coatings, different materials—each having unique strengths and weaknesses—may be utilized. The coating, which encapsulates the entire printed circuit board (PCB), provides a physical barrier against moisture, dust, and other environmental contaminants. The most common coating materials are acrylic, silicone, urethane, and epoxy. Silicone and epoxy coatings can withstand exposure to high temperatures, while urethane has good chemical resistance. Acrylic coatings have excellent moisture and electrical resistance, and therefore are the preferred choice for the majority of applications.

Transcend offers an acrylic conformal coating solution supplied by HumiSeal, one of the leading conformal coating manufacturers. The acrylic coating is quick–drying and features excellent flexibility, moisture protection, electrical isolation, and fungus resistance. It is also compliant with MIL, IPC, RoHS, and UL standards, and is well-suited to most applications. Transcend also offers different coating materials for specific application needs.

Transcend's Conformal Coating
Transcend's conformal coating is applied directly to the module surface (except for the "gold-fingers") to completely encapsulate the PCB and all mounted components. The coating shields the DRAM or flash module from environmental factors, increasing the durability and reliability of the system.
Transcend
To guarantee that Transcend offers the highest quality embedded solutions, our coating process meets IPC-A-610D standards, which specify coating color, coverage, and thickness. Our coating material contains fluorescents to aid final inspection of the product. The coating is 100% inspected under UV light for distribution, quality, and uniformity.
Transcend
Transcend recommends conformal coated flash and memory modules for use in harsh environments with high moisture (forests), high dust (factory, desert), or chemical contaminants. These include chemical refinery plants, automotive applications, military environments, railroad systems, and traffic control systems. For more information, please visit www.transcend-info.com.
