Posted on Friday, April 13 2012 @ 16:02:12 CEST by

MSI launches the CX70 and CR70, two new multimedia laptop series with Intel's latest Core processors, low-end NVIDIA GeForce 600 series graphics cards, SRS PC Sound, USB 3.0, HDMI, and Bluetooth 4.0.
MSI recently unveiled its multimedia CX70 and CR70 notebook computers, packing powerful features like Intel's new generation Core i™ processor, SRS PC Sound™, USB3.0, HDMI 1.4, and Bluetooth 4.0. In addition, the CX70 sports the most advanced performance-level discrete graphics card—the nVidia GeForce GT640M discrete graphics card, giving you the absolutely fastest, smoothest multimedia performance available bar none, making it "Your multimedia companion!"

Taipei—Looking for the biggest bang for your buck in terms of multimedia performance and style? MSI's new CX70 and CR70 17.3-inch multimedia laptops pack Intel's new generation Core i™ processor for the ultimate in computing power. What's more, to meet the needs of increasing high resolution of today's HD multimedia, the CX70 and CR70 come equipped with cinema-level SRS PC Sound and faster transfer ports, including USB 3.0, which is ten times faster than USB 2.0, HDMI 1.4, which can handle the latest HD resolution, and the new generation Bluetooth 4.0, which connects more quickly and covers a wider area.

Eric Kuo, associate vice president for global sales, MSI Notebook, notes that the CX70 and CR70 laptops are designed to handle the latest digital multimedia entertainment, featuring powerful transfer technologies to meet the needs of high resolution and large files as well as 17.3-inch anti-glare full HD screens. If you want something bigger than a high definition computer screen for viewing films, the MSI CX70 and CR70 laptops also come with an HDMI 1.4 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.

More bang for your buck
Intel latest generation Core i™ CPU: The MSI CX70 and CR70 come equipped with Intel's latest generation Core i™ processor which supports Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology to analyze processor workload and automatically allocate processor resources to throttle up core clocks to enhance computing performance. This cutting-edge processing platform employs the most advanced nano production technology, currently the most advanced on the planet, enhancing great processing performance over the previous generation, while saving power and optimizing cooling capabilities.

nVidia GeForce GT640M discrete graphics card: The CX70 features the nVidia GeForce GT640M discrete graphics card with 2G DDR3 of display memory. It boasts more powerful display performance over same-class, previous generation graphics cards, scoring 7,261 points on the 3D Mark Vantage test, making it the most advanced discrete graphics card among performance-class discrete graphics cards (See chart below) for display performance so impressive that whether you are watching an HD video, viewing a new generation website with rich, interactive media content, or embroiled in a melee with bad guys in a DirectX11-supporting game, the CX70 delivers.

Perfect balance between performance and battery time: The CX70 laptop comes with MSI's GPU Boost technology, so when it's handling heavy load applications, the system automatically switches over to the discrete graphics card for powerful graphics and when it is performing general word processing tasks or browsing the Internet, it automatically cuts to the power-sipping integrated graphics chip mode, striking the ideal balance between performance and battery life.

Powerful transfer technologies
Latest USB3.0 ports: The CX70 and CR70 come with USB3.0 which boasts transfer speeds of 4.8Gbps—10 times faster than USB2.0, so a 25Gb HD film transfers in just 70 seconds. It also provides 80% more power for vastly faster charging speeds for external hard drives, flash drives, and other handheld electronic devices.

New transfer technologies: The CX70 and CR70 come with new generation Bluetooth 4.0 which boasts data transfer speeds of 24Mbps for increased connection speeds and a wider area of connectivity over the previous generation.

Not just another pretty face
The ultimate blend of craftsmanship and style: The sexy chassis sheathed in MSI's own gray scale galaxy Color Film Print, palm rest areas with film in the same color scheme, the stylish chiclet keyboard, the multipoint touchpad with crystal diamond finish, and the recessed speakers come together to bring you the perfect blend of high tech and art that characterize the CX70 and CR70.

Full array of HD features: MSI's CX70 and CR70 laptops are equipped with a full HD 16:9 wide anti-glare screen that offers bright colors without those pesky black strips at the top and bottom of the screen when you watch films. The HD720p webcam allows you to enjoy smooth, bright high fidelity web calls with friends and family. If you want something bigger than a high definition computer screen for viewing films, the MSI CX70 and CR70 laptops also come with an HDMI 1.4 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.

SRS PC Sound: MSI's CX70 and CR70 laptops come with new generation SRS PC Sound™ for natural wrap around, high fidelity sound whether you use the built-in speakers, external ones, or headsets. This machine is designed to satisfy your craving for crisp, clear sound.

Environment-friendly entertainment
Turbo Battery: Turbo Battery technology lets you control power on an array of hardware, including Bluetooth and wireless devices as well as your webcam, with a single click of the mouse. Now, you can extend battery time by shutting off devices not in use.

MSI S-Bar: The CX70 and CR70 laptops not only offer the most powerful hardware available, both its hardware and software were designed with the user in mind. MSI's S-Bar toolbar, located at the top of the screen, consists of shortcuts for major OS programs and hardware as well as MSI's own applications. It allows you to control all system functions, auxiliary programs and applications as well as an array of programs, such as software to save power and boost performance as well as MSI's multimedia software, the webcam, the projector, the wireless, Bluetooth, volume control, screen brightness, and standby mode. Operating multimedia was never easier.
