MSI Summit E series
There are two models in the MSI Summit E series, E15 and E14. Both laptops can be configured with up to 11th Generation Intel Core i7 processors and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q design graphic card with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM. MSI Summit E15 comes with a 15.6-inch display with 4K resolution. The display also adds 100% Adobe RGB coverage support as well. There’s also another version of the E15 with touchscreen support and FHD (1920 x 1080 px) resolution. Customer can max the laptop up to 64GB RAM and for storage, the device also comes with one NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen4 SSD and M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen3 SSD slots.
