The Story of THE SKY'S THE LIMIT
Since the invention of motorized vehicles, man has always pursued speed. Be it on land, water or in the air, engineers and test pilots have together been aiming for records previously unattainable - just like we try to do at MSI. Recent advances in technology and persistent challenging of the limits on MSI's side does not only help create slimmer notebooks - but obviously higher performance as well. For some time now, the raw processing power of the CPUs used in mobile systems have been comparable to their desktop system counterparts, and as the world is becoming increasingly focused on mobility and productivity on the go, this trend is set to continue - and MSI is in something of a unique position for this evolution.

"We're focusing only on high-end mobile gaming systems. We pack in the best available performance hardware in the form of RAID solutions of SSDs, where we've been leading the way in storage transfer speeds with our SSD solution Super RAID for years. The latest iteration, Super RAID 4 will hit 3300MB/s, up from 1500MB/s in Super RAID 3. We also use the greatest graphics cards from NVIDIA, such as two GeForce GTX 980M in SLI in our GT80, these are paired to high-end monitor panels, available with G-Sync, to create real, measurable value for end-users. As a silver lining to the cloud that is our lineup, we can now add the 6th-Gen Intel Core to our packages," says Eric Kuo. "I believe the sky is the limit."

Arguably, gaming started more than 40 years ago with arcade games, but is only now starting to become something personal, for everyone. Considering the progress up until now, and the ever-increasing development pace, we would indeed argue that THE SKY’S THE LIMIT, with, and for MSI.
