    After some digging it looks like the MSI GT 15.6" in flavor is making a return in the form of the GT62 VR edition. This appears to be an actual GT62 and not that unbranded barebones with a desktop CPU that we've seen in the past. An official GT62! So far I've seen 2 SKUs with the 6700HQ and 6820HK but GPU and screen is unlisted.

    Other laptops inbound include the GT72VR, GS73/63VR, GS43VR, and GE72/62VR.

    Hopefully we know more soon, but good news for anyone that wants the 15.6" GT chassis back.

    GS43VR

    Take my moneez.

    Edit: Actually I have reservations that 'if' it comes with a GTX1070m it 'may' not be as good as my overclocked 980m :(

    Edit2:

    GT62VR
    GS43VR (no dynaudio??)
    GS63VR
    GS73VR
    GT83VR

    Hmmmm.

    Yes I posted these photos earlier but decided to remove them after I realized that maybe they weren't exactly public info yet? Its sort of a weird site and seems like a backdoor or something to an MSI page. Either way it looks damn sexy. Seems like there will be a GT63 as well. MSI is smart to go back to the 15.6" chassis IMO. Those 17" and above laptops are ridiculous to lug around, even the GT series is depending on weight. At that point just get a laptop for work, and build a desktop for home. It's a niche market but I can't see how it's very profitable.

    The website I use to sort of track up coming SKUs has already removed them. My guess is someone saw this thread and someone got yelled at for posting them.

    A GT63? Does that 3'mean it's a 15" SLI machine? Whoa if so.

    Incremental model numbers, nothing to do with SLI.


    Edit: Spec for all new models (well to some degree) available here.

    Nice! My vendor source showed the model numbers yesterday but they have since removed them. It didn't list the specs or GPU though, only CPU actually. Seems 1060 and 1070 is going to be offered in the GT62 which is fine with me as long as the 1070 spanks the 980m and desktop 980. It should as the 1070 desktop keeps up with a 980 Ti. I would assume we will get a slightly cut down 1070 and not a full 1070.

    I've only seen the GS43 listed with the GTX1060m, that's a disappointment as I wanted to drop down from the GT72 in size yet keep performance. Sad times. (May go for a GT62/3 if the GTX1070m stock hits 10k+ on firestrike).
