MSI GS40 Phantom Gaming Notebook arrives in November

MSI is well-known for its gaming notebooks and earlier this month it revealed the brand new GS40 phantom series, based on Intel’s latest generation Skylake processors and Nvidia’s Maxwell-based graphics chips all packed in to a powerful 14-inch form factor. Since the initial announcement and our subsequent exclusive video preview, a few readers have been asking when they can get their hands on one, so we got in touch with MSI to find out!

Overclockers UK is the first retailer to have pre-orders open for the laptop, which is currently scheduled to begin shipping on the 16th of November.


In terms of specifications, you can expect an Intel Core i7 6700HQ processor, which offers a 20 per cent boost over the previous Core i7 4720HQ. It also packs a decent punch in the graphics department, with the Maxwell-based Nvidia GTX 970m GPU, which offers pretty solid performance at 1080p, as shown by our previous notebook reviews.

If you want to get a closer look at the laptop while reviews are still in the making, then you can check out our preview, HERE. 

KitGuru Says: Things are looking promising for the GS40 Phantom. Be on the lookout for our full review in the near future!

    One thing I’m wondering is max ram support. Overclockers UK specs show max. 16, but I’d think it should be able to handle 2 x 16 = 32 (by being Skylake). Could someone confirm this?
