those who are waiting for alternatives to the usual Intel-flavored mobile gaming laptop can look forward to the refreshed MSI GX70 and GX60 Gaming Laptops, both touting AMD Richland A10-5750M chips. the GX60 (model 3AE-216US) features a 15.6″ Full HD non-reflective display, 750GB storage, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a Blu-ray Reader, Killer E2200 Game Networking, SD card reader, headset AMP, three USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 ports, HDMI 1.4 output, a 720p HD webcam, built-in dual THX speakers with subwoofer, built-in WiFi, a multitouch trackpad, SteelSeries keyboard and it runs on Windows 8 OS.

the dearer of the two, the GX70 (model 3BE-007US) has everything the GX60 has, but boasts a 17.3″ Full HD non-reflective display and has a AMD Radeon HD 8970M GPU with 2GB VRAM as opposed to the ‘lesser’ AMD HD7970M (also with 2GB VRAM) on the GX60. a couple of other features that set the larger GX70 apart from the GX60 are Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, as well as a backlit SteelSeries Gaming keyboard. we have no idea exactly when these AMD Richland A10 powered gaming laptops will hit the store, but they are currently listed on MSI website and cost $1,299.99 for the GX60 and $1,399.99 for the GX70.
