PC Gamer just finished their review of the GT80 Titan SLI, awarding it with a high score of 85!
Where MSI really went bold was with its keyboard and trackpad. Eschewing the chiclet-style keys found on so many mobile systems, MSI implements a red-backlit SteelSeries mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches. It takes some getting used to, but the light actuation force is ideal for fast-paced action. And they sound so satisfying clicking away.
The GT80 Titan has a great build quality. It sports a black brushed aluminum lid with red highlights that match the keyboard’s lighting. A thickness measurement of almost two inches creates plenty of room for exhaust vents on the sides and back.
…the GT80 Titan SLI-001 is a purpose-built powerhouse. Its graphics hardware easily drives the 18.4” PLS panel at 1920x1080 using the top settings in any game you choose, almost begging for a 4K screen or three panels in Surround.
You'll either love or hate the SteelSeries mechanical keyboard. We began our review apprehensive, but quickly learned to love the clicky key presses in the notebook chassis.
Best of all, MSI gives you access to its guts through a removable panel secured by a couple of screws. Getting to a notebook’s serviceable parts has never been easier.
