Driven by a desire to “insist on the best,” MSI will be exhibiting a number of powerful G Series gaming notebooks at 2011 CES, including the top end GT680—the “fastest notebook on the planet.” When tested with PC MARK Vantage tools, it attained a speed of 18,162 points. It has the fastest operating system in the world, performing some three times faster than the average speed of high end gaming books currently on the market.
Eric Kuo, associate vice president for global sales, MSI Notebook, points out that the GT680 is the world’s most powerful laptop. It features Intel’s latest four core CPU, nVidia GeForce’s newest generation high end discrete graphics card, and four DDR3 memory slots expandable to 16GB of memory. It also supports accelerated dual hard disk architecture, which not only doubles storage capacity, but also kicks up read-write speed by approximately 70%.
Kuo added that another reason that the GT680 is the fastest NB in the world is the fact that it uses MSI’s own TDE+ (Turbo Drive Engine+ technology) which allows both the CPU and GPU to turbo simultaneously. Just one touch of the luminescent Turbo hot key located above the keyboard throttles up performance, making the MSI GT680 the king of gaming books.
