MSI Ships GT680R Gaming Notebook Again
 
 

Back a few months ago the issue with the Intel Sandy Bridge chipsets was made official and many of the machines that used the chipset were pulled from the market while Intel redesigned the platform. MSI has announced that its gaming notebook called the GT680R is now shipping again. This is a 15.6-inch gaming notebook and it uses the refreshed Intel Core i7 processors.

Inside the 680R uses the Core i7 2630QM processor. The machine also gets a new warranty that has been extended by another year to help the customer feel better about buying one of the machines after the issues with the 6-series chipsets before.

“MSI is dedicated to provide outstanding customer service,” said Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI US. “We want our customers to know that we are doing all we can to ensure their highest satisfaction as we have resolved – and continue to move beyond – the Intel 6 Series chipset issue.”

Other features of the notebook inside the exclusive MSI turbo Drive Engine technology that allows the machine to increase the CPU and GPU speed for better performance. The notebook also has Cooler Boost technology for better cooling capabilities. It has support for up to 12GB of RAM thanks to the DDR3 RAM.

The sound system uses Dynaudio technology and the speakers are placed for optimum sound. Sound is important when gaming and watching movies and this is one place that many notebooks skimp to save money. The screen of the notebook is 15.6-inches, LED backlit, and has a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The chipset inside is the HM67 by Intel.

The GPU for the gaming and multimedia machine is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M with 1.5GB of DDR5 VRAM. The notebook ships with 8GB of RAM and a pair of 500GB HDDs for storage. The machine also has WiFi and Bluetooth as well. The machine sells for $1649.99.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
