MSI introduced a new 15.4" gaming notebook named GT627, this model uses Intel Core 2 Duo processors, the NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GS graphics card with 1GB GDDR3 memory, up to 4GB of DDR2 800MHz memory and 320GB 7200RPM HDD. The system also has a DVD burner, optional Blu-ray, 4-in-1 memory card reader, e-SATA port (USB combo), HDMI, 802.11a/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 2 megapixel webcam and ExpressCard x1 expansion slot. The laptop weighs 5.8lbs with a 6-cell battery, but if you prefer more juice you can upgrade to a 9-cell battery.
The new GT627 is the first in the MSI Gaming Notebook series to feature the NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GS graphics processing unit (GPU). This revolutionary GPU delivers blazing-fast mobile gaming and supports NVIDIA CUDA™ technology enabling MSI customers to experience the wide range of CUDA-based applications-such as heart-stopping GPU-accelerated game physics and video conversion. The GeForce 9800M GS also saves power and increases computing efficiently by handling video decoding, allowing the CPU to focus on other tasks.
MSI has also equipped the GT627 with a spacious 15.4" WSXGA (1680x1050) LCD, 2W internal speakers, and weight cartridge laser mouse to enhance the mobile gaming experience. The GT627 also features MSI's proprietary Turbo Drive Engine, which can overclock the notebook's Intel Core 2 Duo Processor (Penryn, FSB 1066) by as much as 15% at the touch of a button when in AC mode. When on the go, users can conserve the GT627's battery by taking advantage of the MSI's Eco Engine technology to switch between five power settings to ensure efficient power consumption.
MSI housed the powerful GT627 in its stylish anodized brushed aluminum gaming case. This solid enclosure features stamped aluminum sheeting in both the LCD lid and palm rest for increased protection and durability. However, despite the reinforced casing and a 6-cell battery, the GT627 weighs just over six pounds making it one of the most portable gaming notebooks in its class. Additionally, MSI also included an 802.11 b/g/n wireless modem and a Blu-ray player to make it a true mobile entertainment center.
