MSI Gets Its Ghost Recon: Wildlands On With Camo Squad Motherboards, Graphics Cards And Laptops At PAX East
This past weekend, the HotHardware team hit up PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts. We could not leave without checking out the MSI booth. We were fortunate enough to have Lenny Tang, associate marketing manager of MSI, give us a tour of the company’s latest Camo Squad limited edition gaming laptops, motherboards and graphics cards.
MSI’s Camo Squad designed gaming products are being brought to market by the company in honor of the release of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. The design is unique to MSI and was created through “delicate craftsmanship”. Fans can pick up a GE62VR 7RF Camo Squad gaming notebook with a GeForce GTX 1060 on board or a GE62 7RE Camo Squad notebook with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti under the hood. The company also has a Z270 Camo Squad motherboard and a Camo Squad GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics card on tap as well.
Each of the Camo Squad products comes with its own bundle. Fans who pick up the gaming notebook will also receive a copy of the Ghost Recon: Wildlands game and season pass. Camo squad gaming notebook customers will also get a Camo Squad backpack, mouse pad, water bottle, and dog tags. These extras are gaming notebook exclusives. Motherboard customers will receive the game, while graphics card customers will receive the Ghost Recon season pass. The Camo Squad gear is available between March 7th and June 30th, 2017 in most countries, with the exception of China.
The MSI booth also included a display of the Aegis 3 small form factor gaming system. It includes an Intel 7th gen Core i7-7700 processor with DDR4 memory and Optane support. It can house up to a GeForce GTX 1070 and supports NVMe PCI-E Solid State Drives. It is also VR Ready with a VR Link, ‘One-Click-VR, and HDMI out port. The Aegis 3 is compact and includes a built-in carry handle and vertical graphics optimal protection for protection during transport.
The Aegis 3 is available in stores and online, while the Camo Squad gear is available only at the MSI website.
