MSI has recently unveiled their latest product in their gaming notebook line-up with the GT780DX, promising ground shaking performances.
With gaming desktops at the top of their performances, they still present a transport problem, you can’t usually take your entire rig with you on vacations, getting it around the house is difficult enough as it is, yet companies such as MSI are looking into gaming on the portable level, on which they have advanced further with this new product.
This beast is powered by Intel’s latest Second Generation Core i7 processors, equipped with the complete Turbo Drive Engine from MSI as well as the Cooler Boost and four slots of DDR3 memory for up to 32GB or RAM, making it already powerful, to add even more, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 570M discrete graphics card with 3GB of GDDR5 memory has been fitted into it, making the word beast an understatement.
Coming with RAID 0 capabilities, as well as SSDs, an wide choice is provided, all of which will only provide a fast and responsive computer. Although to add to the storage, a wide arrays of devices can be connected onto the GT780DX, through two USB 3.0, three USB 2.0, one eSATA or the card reader.
All of this wouldn’t be worth a lot if the display isn’t up to the task, but it’s not the case here, as a 17.3” Full HD 1920×1080 display incorporated with Cinema Pro technology will reproduce the incredible image you will want to look at. To make the experience even more worthwhile, high-end cinema technologies have been included to give an incredible sound, all of which courtesy of Dynaudio and THX TruStudio Pro that will give the listener one hell of a show, which, when not playing, can be enjoy with the Blu-ray/DVD Super Multi.
Something without which no gamer would be able to be at the top; the keyboard. This specific keyboard has been designed for gamers by no other than the world renown gaming peripheral manufacturer SteelSeries. By changing the location of the Windows key and making the CTRL and ALT keys larger, SteelSeries and MSI have made sure that the game is not interrupted, on the contrary, they made sure it can be perfected.
Another feature added is LED lighting, something common on high quality notebooks, but this one is rather unique, as with the simple press of a button, you will be able to change modes between Normal, Wave, Breating, Dual Color and finally Gaming. In the latter, you will have you entire right keyboard in darkness, while the left part, most commonly the centre of attention of the gamers hands, will be lighted up to show your fingers where to go even in pitch black.
Of course, what would we do without internet? Becoming more than common, you can never leave this information out, as this is always requested; 802.11 b/g/n WLAN as well as Gigabit LAN, Bluetooth 3.0+HS also find its way. “Skypers” as well as other people video conferencing will be happy to know that a 720p HD webcam as also been integrated.
