MSI unveils GX680 gaming notebook

MSI updated its GX series notebooks on Thursday with a new flagship. The GX680 uses a Sandy Bridge-era, 2GHz quad Core i7 and pairs it up with a new GeForce GT 555M to give it reasonably fast 3D. Memory expansion is a key highlight, MSI said: the 15.6-inch system has four RAM slots, or space enough for 16GB of RAM for very heavy duty gaming or pro work.

Every model has a Dynaudio-tuned sound system with THX-based virtual surround sound, high-powered USB 3.0 ports that can charge quickly, and elaborate case lighting. Configurations vary widely, but they start with a 720p display, a 500GB hard drive, and a DVD drive. Higher-end versions move to a 1080p display, Blu-ray optical storage, and as much as dual 750GB hard drives in a RAID stripe.

As with most MSI launches, the price and ship date haven't been given out yet, but it usually ships to the US and provides details closer to the local launch.
