MSI GT660 gaming notebook – the Ultimate in multimedia entertainment

Anybody who has ever been behind the wheel of a snazzy sports car knows
that to really enjoy the ride, you have to crank up the tunes on your
onboard surround-sound stereo as you cruise at high speeds. With the
Intel Core i7 processor under the hood, MSI’s GT660 gaming notebook not
only hums like a well-tuned sports car, its body is graced with cool
lines that leave other laptops eating its dust. It’s the racecar of
notebooks and it’s the only NB on the market to come equipped with
high-fidelity surround sound from world-class sound system designer
Dynaudio. At the touch of a finger, you can enjoy the ultimate in sound
and speed.

The speed
of sound, the sound of speed

MSI’s design
team received Germany’s iF Product Design Award for 2010—the design
world’s equivalent of an Oscar, thereby, underscoring its innovation
capabilities. In designing the GT660, our team merged the ultimate in
art with the height of technology to offer you a combination heretofore
found only in supercars.

Forged 3D
supercar exterior: MSI’s glowing white logo is set in
the center of the GT660’s cover which itself resembles a sports car hood
with raised a black diamond trident above a glowing red slash. Around
the ebony exterior are other strategically placed ruby red LED lights
that smolder to the sounds emitted by the laptop. Furthermore, MSI’s
exclusive hip color film print coating accentuates the GT660’s riveting
sports car exterior. Design details, like the rhombic pattern on the
wrist rest areas and high tech brush finish on the touchpad, add class
and texture and underscore the GT660’s awesome presence.

A match made in sound heaven

The GT660 is stealing the spotlight and the hearts of gamers
everywhere. Part of the reason stems from the fact that MSI worked in
coordination with world-renowned sound system technology Dynaudio to
produce the GT660’s high-fidelity, surround-sound design.

Ultimate Dynaudio sound: Dynaudio is
not only the apex of the sound system world, it’s the preferred choice
for handmade supercars around the world and its work frequently graces
Hollywood blockbusters. In another world first, MSI has now integrated
Dynaudio’s surround-sound technology into the GT660 for unprecedented
pristine sound.

Superior sound system:
The MSI/Dynaudio R&D team performed meticulous studies to determine
the ideal locations for the GT660’s speakers. Structural details were
tweaked to optimize sound and the sound system field to obtain
obstruction-free sound transmission. More than 10,000 precision
calculations went into determining the ideal location between NB and
user and then to redesign the sound card circuitry to maximize the
relationship between the speakers and system. Each frequency was tested
thoroughly to obtain ideal tone and balance to ensure balanced tone and
to produce a high quality driver with next to no coloration. So no
matter what kind of music you listen to, you’ll get clean, crisp,
high-fidelity sound at all frequency levels.

Powerful hardware

addition to the cool body and amazing surround sound, the GT660 also
boasts the ultimate in hardware under the hood, giving it horsepower and
blazing speed.

The world’s most
advanced Intel Core i7 quad core processor: Specialized
laboratory testing shows that the Intel Core i7 processor boasts
superior multimedia performance, so it can retrieve data from Blu-ray
disks, produce photo projection macros, or update online photo albums
twice as fast as conventional duo core notebooks. The Intel Core i7
processor also comes with Turbo Boost dynamic performance adjustment
technology which flexibly adjusts processing performance in accordance
with application load requirements. This function can further boost
processing performance by 30%, so you won’t be plagued with choppy
graphics when you’re trying to enjoy a multimedia experience.

Advanced nVIDIA GeForce GTX 285M
discrete graphics card: The MSI GT660 comes equipped
with nVIDIA’s most advanced GeForce GTX 285M discrete graphics card with
a 128 stream processor and 1GB GDDR3 of display memory. As a result,
not only does the GT660 boast high performance graphics capabilities,
the NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology totally unleashes the graphics core power,
enabling the GT660 to handle high load tasks, such as video file
conversion, quickly and smoothly. Furthermore, the GeForce GTX 285M
discrete graphics card supports NVIDIA® PhysX™ technology to take gamers
into an all-new world of extreme interactive gaming, using super
dynamic and realistic graphics.

Three DDR3 memory slots:
To provide gamers with powerful gaming capabilities, the GT660 comes
with three DDR3 memory slots to expand memory up to 12GB to double
performance, giving this laptop the computing power of a server.

TDE+ offers instantaneous
performance boost

The GT660 gamebook
boasts the best core hardware in the world as well as MSI’s own ultimate
weapon—TDE+ technology, which kicks in dual overclocking for both
processor and graphics card.

overclocking technology: The MSI GT660 is the world’s
first NB to come with dual overclocking for processor and display
performance. Just a touch of the luminescent turbo hotkey situated above
the keyboard kicks in MSI’s exclusive TDE+ technology (Turbo Drive
Engine+ technology) to throttle up processor and display chip
performance instantly, so that your NB stays highly responsive when
you’re using high load applications and can be your secret weapon when
you’re slashing orcs or cruising the cosmos.

Cooler Boost technology: In addition to
MSI’s TDE technology, MSI incorporated its exclusive Cooler Boost
technology into the powerful GT660. Just one touch of the hotkey
switches on the GT660’s impressive cooling capabilities to keep the
GT660 operating at low temperatures even when working for long periods
of time under hot conditions.

An age of high definition and
high fidelity

The MSI GT660 features the most
advanced high definition hardware and high fidelity multimedia

Accelerated dual hard
disk architecture: Two hard drives are better than one.
The dual hard disk architecture design gives the GT660’s twice the
memory and accelerates read-write speed. The GT660 also comes equipped
with USB3.0 slots which can transfer data at 5GB a second—more than ten
times faster than the conventional USB2.0, and which provides 80% more
power to recharge handheld devices. Now data transfer and battery
recharging is, oh, so much faster.

HD hardware: The MSI GT660 is equipped with a wide
cinema-class 16:9 ratio LED display. Not only are colors rich and crisp,
you don’t have those pesky black bars at the top and bottom or your
screen when viewing HD films. Images are true-to-life, the Blu-ray drive
comes optional, and the HD720p webcam allows you to enjoy fast, smooth,
bright, and high fidelity web calls with friends and family. If you
want more than a high definition computer screen to view films, the MSI
GT660 also comes with an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
port, so any high-fidelity, high-definition videos can be played on your
NB, but viewed via a cable on a large-screen LCD television screen.
