Meet the Computer Animation and Game Art Laptop: The MSI GE Raider
The MSI GE Raider laptop’s features align with the needs of Computer Animation and Game Art students.
Full Sail’s Computer Animation and Game Art programs are immersive, detail-oriented programs that use industry-standard tools and equipment to give students the skills they need to thrive after graduation. As part of Full Sail's Project LaunchBox program, all students receive a package containing a computer, accessories, and software tailored to the needs of their degree. For Computer Animation and Game Art program students, that computer is MSI's GE Raider laptop.
The MSI GE Raider laptop offers several features that align with the Computer Animation and Game Art program curriculums. The laptop’s versatility and MSI's established presence in the gaming and computer animation spaces make it a good choice for running demanding software, including Unreal Engine, ZBrush, Adobe Substance Painter and Designer, and Autodesk Maya. Many of these tools – which are also included in the students’ LaunchBox – are built with PCs in mind.
The MSI GE Raider laptop is fitted with the NVIDIA RTX card, a fast graphics card that makes real-time ray tracing and CPU rendering possible. Ray tracing allows Computer Animation and Game Art students to create realistic reflections and lighting when working with game-building software. The RTX graphics card is one of the only graphics cards on the market with ray tracing capabilities.
Computer Animation and Game Art students also use Adobe Substance Painter and Adobe Substance Designer for authoring material. Each program makes internal high-end 3D calculations while running, which the MSI GE Raider laptop can handle. Unreal Engine is essential software for students from both programs, too. Using Unreal Engine 5 on the MSI GE Raider laptop allows students to take advantage of all the features available on the software, including the new Lumen Global Illumination and Reflections system and the MetaHuman character creation tool.
Since students get to keep everything they receive in their LaunchBox, they can benefit from using the MSI GE Raider laptop after graduation, too.
