MSI introduces the FX603, a new 15.6" notebook with Intel Core i3/i5 processor options, NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M graphics card, up to 8GB DDR3-1066MHz, Windows 7 Home Premium, up to 640GB HDD, two USB 3.0 ports, 5-in-1 memory card reader, HDMI, DVD burner, 4-channel speakers, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, webcam, and a 6-cell li-ion battery. The system measures 383mm x 249.3mm x 38mm and weighs about 2.4kg (w/battery).
MSI once again brings together the perfect blend of beauty and performance, this time in its all-new 15.6” FX603 laptop. The MSI FX603 is sheathed in MSI's own anti-scratch, anti-smudge raised totem seal coating technology. The speakers boast a lustrous chrome trim setting off the chiclet keyboard, the raised multipoint touchpad, and the hotkey zone's brush metal finish.
MSI Marketing Director Sam Chern adds that beneath the hood, the aesthetically pleasing FX603 notebook computer packs power in the form of Intel's Core i5 CPU. When it's processing high load applications, MSI’s TDE Turbo Drive technology let's you instantaneously throttle up CPU performance. Worth mentioning is the fact that the FX603 comes with nVidia's new generation GeForce GT 425M discrete graphics card which supports DirectX 11 and when the machine is executing load-heavy graphics applications, MSI's exclusive GPU Boost technology causes the discrete graphics card mode to automatically kick in for powerful graphics processing.
Intel Core i5 processor: The FX603 comes with Intel's powerful and energy-sipping Core i5 processor with Intel Turbo Boost and Intel® Hyper-Threading technology with dynamic adaptive performance to handle more data and vastly increase overall system performance.
nVidia® GeForce® GT 425M discrete graphics card (w/ 1GB GDDR3 VRAM): To maximize multimedia performance, the MSI FX603 comes equipped with the nVidia GeForce GT 425M discrete graphics card with 1GB GDDR3 of display memory for superior display performance that uses less power and supports DirectX 11 for excellent 3D graphics.
TDE technology: The FX603 comes with MSI’s own TDE (Turbo Drive Engine technology). A touch of the mirror finish P1 hot key above the keyboard instantly throttles up system performance, so that your computer doesn't bog down when processing big load applications.
GPU Boost technology: When your system needs extra processing power, the automatic graphics switching in MSI's GPU Boost technology kicks your FX603 over to discrete graphics card mode to give you powerful graphic processing capabilities. When performing general word processing tasks or browsing the Internet, it automatically cuts to the power-sipping integrated graphics chip mode.
USB3.0 ports: The FX603 comes with new USB3.0 ports which boast transfer speeds of 5Gbps—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.
Perfect fusion of style and craftsmanship: The FX603 laptop is proof that MSI continues to insist on the best. Its jet black cover is sheathed in non-peeling raised totem seal coating to prevent scratching and smudging. The center of the covers is graced with MSI's glowing platinum logo and the wrist rest areas with a soft raised diamond coating that not only soothes hands, but adds an extra touch of class.
Precision technology: Every detail of the FX603 was meticulously crafted by MSI’s design team. The power button is encircled by chrome which sets off the cold, luminescent blue lights above the keyboard beautifully. The unassuming platinum trim around the speakers as well as the unmatched chiclet keyboard with its solid touch, raised multipoint touchpad, and the brush metal finish of the hotkey zone further underscore the taste and class of these two chic machines.
Awesome multimedia performance
THX smart wrap around sound: MSI and world leader in sound design technology Creative worked together to incorporate professional theater-grade THX TruStudio Pro into the FX603 NB. It works with four top-end internal speakers to give you undistorted sound, regardless of music type or frequency band. The Smart Volume and Surround technology ensure crisp, clean sound and enhance mood.
Perfect speaker position: To build a laptop with superb sound, you need to be meticulous about each and every detail. Even speaker locations and sound field design have to be calculated with precision. MSI worked side by side with Dynaudio to carry out vast amounts of study and countless calculations to determine ideal locations to install speakers to obtain obstruction-free sound transmission.
Cinema Pro technology: The MSI FX603 features 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.
Multiple HD hardware: The MSI FX603 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. And the HD720p webcam allows you to enjoy fast, smooth, bright, and high fidelity web calls with friends and family. If you want more than a high definition computer screen.
