MSI releases workstation laptops with Quadro GPUs and Intel Xeon option

MSI has announced four new workstation laptops. The company supplies the laptops with tenth-generation Intel CPUs, although two of the models can be equipped with Xeon CPUs. The company also provides the laptops with an Nvidia Quadro GPU.

The updated WS75 and WS66 are two more high-end models. These can both come with 10th-generation Intel Core i7 or i9 CPUs, although they can also be equipped with an unknown Xeon processor. This was not possible with the current WS models. MSI also provides the new models with Quadro RTX GPUs and up to 64GB of DDR4-2666 memory with optional ECC support. The WS75 and WS66 each have two m2 slots.

The WS75 can also be supplied with a 4K mini LED screen with a screen diagonal of 17.3″ and a DisplayHDR 1000 certification. This screen can display 100 percent of the dci-p3 color space according to MSI. The WS66 comes with a maximum of 15 .6″ screen with IPS panel and a 4k resolution. According to MSI, this screen can display 100 percent of the AdobeRGB color space. There is no mention of any DisplayHDR certification.

The MSI WS75

The WS75 has an 82Wh battery, although the WS66 has a battery capacity of 99.9Wh. The power of the supplied charger depends on the selected GPU model. Models with the Quadro RTX 5000 GPU come with a 230W charger, while WS laptops with a lower-positioned video card come with a 180W charger.

The WF75 and WF65, in turn, come with 10th-generation Intel Core i5, i7, or i9 CPUs. Xeon CPUs are not an option with these models. The WF75 also comes with up to a Quadro RTX 3000 GPU. That is remarkable, because the current WF75 can also be equipped with a Quadro RTX 4000. The WF65 has a maximum of a Quadro T2000. The WF models, like the WS variants, come with up to 64GB of DDR4-2666 memory with optional support for ecc. The WF laptops also have a single m2 connection and space for a 2.5″ drive

The WF75 has a 17.3″ full HD display with an IPS panel and a 144Hz refresh rate. The WF65 also features an IPS display with full HD resolution, although it has a screen diagonal of 15.6 “. The refresh rate is not mentioned. MSI supplies a 180W charger with the WF model with RTX 3000 GPU. Laptops with T1000 or T2000 video card get a 150W charger, while the variant with P620 GPU gets a 120W charger.

At the time of writing, MSI has not yet announced release dates and suggested retail prices for the workstation laptops.
