Starting in 2011, the MSI G Series of notebook computers, the weapons of world champion gaming team Fnatic.MSI, will all feature the latest 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core Processor. The MSI G Series' record-shattering performance is wowing crowds at the CES 2011 venue in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA—Only "truly" high performance notebook computers can meet the needs of demanding gamers. MSI is displaying its G Series of gaming laptops, including the 17.3-inch GT780 as well as the 15.6-inch GT680, GE620, at CES 2011. They all come equipped with the latest 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor and top-end discrete graphics cards. Some models also pack MSI's own turbo boost. What's more, the top models feature accelerated dual solid state drive (SSD) architecture for incredible computing performance that is impressing visitors at CES 2011.
Eric Kuo, associate vice president for global sales, MSI Notebook, noted that a laptop capable of computing at "F1 racecar" speeds is no longer a far-off dream. MSI will be rolling out the GT680 at CES, the planet's fastest notebook. When tested with PCMark Vantage tools, it attained 18,162 points. Not only did it obtain the highest score ever for any laptop platform, it performs on average three times faster than other high-end gaming laptops currently on the market.
Kuo added that G Series notebooks were created by MSI's design team after many years of design and development. The team worked closely with world-class gamers to ensure that everything from hardware specs, ergonomics, and the user interface to the heat dissipation design and multimedia truly meet gamer needs. It's no wonder that they come highly recommended by European gaming champions Fnatic.msi and Evil Geniuses, the US team that snatched the gold in the American CS games last year. G Series laptops have become their weapons of choice as they slash and shoot their way to victory after victory.
2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core Processor: The MSI GT680, GT780, GR620, and GE620 notebook computers feature the latest 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor. The GT780 and GT680 also come with top-end nVidia GeForce GTX Series discrete graphics cards, while the GE620 come equipped with nVidia GeForce GT Series discrete graphics cards. Gamers can now go into battle knowing that they are packing the most powerful hardware available.
New generation Turbo Boost 2.0 technology: The latest generation of G Series NBs all feature 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor which offers better performance, while the new generation Turbo Boost 2.0 technology greatly boosts the computing capabilities of all cores, while the Quick Sync Video technology enhances multimedia file computing performance during conversion, synchronization, and compilation.
Advanced Cooler Boost technology: G Series notebooks aren't just powerful, they're cool. They all come with Cooler Boost cooling technology, so just one touch of the luminescent hot key above the keyboard turns on the powerful cooling function which also shows current core temperatures and fan RPMs. Now, NB systems can stay cool even under when working for long periods in hot conditions. Latest USB3.0 ports: MSI G Series laptops come with new USB3.0 ports which boast transfer speeds of 4.8Gbps—10 times faster than USB2.0, and 80% higher power transmission, providing vastly higher data transfer rates and charging speeds for external hard drives, flash drives, and other handheld electronic devices.
MSI Premium Sound: So you think laptops just can't offer a decent sound experience? Think again! The MSI G Series will completely shatter this stereotype. As a result of its masterful craftsmanship and driven by uncompromising standards for sound quality, MSI has created MSI Premium Sound, allowing you to experience unprecedented sound fidelity. MSI worked closely with world renowned sound system designer Dynaudio to carry out vast amounts of study and countless calculations on the GT680 notebook computers to determine ideal locations to install speakers to obtain obstruction-free sound transmission.
THX TruStudio Pro: The MSI GT680, GT780, GR620, and GE620 laptops shown at CES are equipped with THX TruStudio Pro wrap around sound, heretofore found only in cinemas. The sound is pumped out of top-end internal speakers, so that G Series laptops are able to reproduce any music type or frequency faithfully.
Cinema Pro technology: G Series laptops feature powerful multimedia processing and MSI’s own Cinema Pro technology for the best possible graphics. A touch of the Cinema Pro hotkey instantly switches to film mode for higher resolution and richer colors to bring you the same great audio experience found in live performances, films, and recording studios. MSI's all new G Series notebook computers are not only the best choice for serious gamers, they are powerful digital multimedia centers.
Multiple HD hardware: The MSI G Series is equipped with a wide cinema-class 16:9 ratio LED display. Not only are colors rich and crisp, you don't have those pesky black bars at the top and bottom or your screen when viewing HD films. Images are true-to-life and the HD720p webcam allows you to enjoy fast, smooth, and bright high fidelity web calls with friends and family. If you want more than a high definition computer screen to view films, the MSI G Series also comes with an HDMI port, so any type of high-fidelity, high-definition video can be played on your NB, but viewed via a cable on a large-screen LCD television screen.
World's fastest NB shines at CES
Latest and best hardware: The MSI GT680, the top performing laptop on the planet, comes equipped with the 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor and the powerful high-end nVidia GeForce GTX460M discrete graphics cards. In the past, MSI would design high-end gaming NBs with a maximum of three memory slots, but to enhance the GT680’s computing capabilities, MSI gave it four DDR3 memory slots, boosting memory capacity to 16GB to give it performance to write home about.
Accelerated dual SSD architecture: The GT680 also features accelerated dual solid state drive (SSD) architecture. The read-write speed of just one dual solid state drive alone is three times faster than traditional hard discs. Coupled with the RAID 0 accelerated dual (SSD) architecture not only doubles the GT680's hard drive memory capacity, it enhances read-write speeds by some 70%. TDE technology: The GT680 uses MSI's own TDE (Turbo Drive Engine) technology which allows the system speed to throttle up. The GT680 smashed speed records in PCMark Vantage tests with 18,162 points, making it the fastest notebook computer on the planet.
