MSI launches 2 new gaming notebooks
Press release, September 8; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Thursday 8 September 2011]

Micro-Star International (MSI) has launched two new gaming notebooks, the GT780DX and GT683DX featuring the Intel Core i7 processors and Nvidia discrete graphics chips.

Both gaming notebooks feature Intel's second-generation Core i7-2630QM quad-core processor with Nvidia's high-end GeForce GTX 570M discrete graphics card, and are both equipped with gaming keyboards made by SteelSeries.

The two systems support DDR3 memory up to 16GB, while the adoption of RAID 0 settings for the notebooks' hard drives help double their storage capacity, while accelerating read-write speeds by 70%, MSI claimed.

The MSI GT780DX sports a 17.3-inch Full HD screen and comes with Cinema Pro technology for a crisper picture and richer colors, while the GT683DX features a 15.6-inch panel. Both devices are equipped with an 720p webcam.

Both machines also use MSI's exclusive Turbo Drive Engine (TDE) and Cooler Boost technologies.
