MSI has this week unveiled a brand new workstation that has been designed with VR in mind.
Called the MSI WT72, it is a NVIDIA VR ready mobile workstation that has been built with performance in mind, allowing for powerful VR experiences on the go.
To do this, the WT72 has an Intel 6th Generation Core i7/ Xeon processor that can be supported by up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, alongside NVIDIA’s Quadro M5500 GPU.
That GPU allows for huge power just by itself, and is currently the most powerful mobile graphics processor, with 2,048 cores for optimum speed and power.
Andy Tung, president of MSI Pan America explains :
The WT72 with NVIDIA’s M5500 Quadro GPU is the world’s first VR Ready mobile workstation and can blaze through the most demanding tasks. NVIDIA powers our workstations, from the ultra-powerful WT72 to the super lightweight WS72 and WS62, and we are delighted to partner with them to drive the VR revolution into a new dimension.
MSI’s WT72 armed with the Quadro M5500 GPU comes with a variety of exclusive NVIDIA technologies to maximize the VR experience, including VRWorks, which includes an innovative rendering technology for VR content called Multi-res Shading, and Content Priority. The WT72 is Autodesk VRED certified and compatible with existing VR systems, including Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
