New heights in performance
Intel 2nd generation Core™ i7 quad core CPU: MSI's GT780, GT683, and GE620 notebook computers feature Intel 2nd generation Core™ i7 quad core processors for better performance and new generation Turbo Boost 2.0 to vastly enhance performance in each core, automatically allocating processor resources to boost core clock speeds and overall computer performance. Quick Sync Video revs up efficiency when ripping, synchronizing, and editing multimedia files.
nVidia GeForce GTX 560M discrete graphics card: The new generation GT780 and GT683 pack nVidia's GeForce GTX 560M discrete graphics card with 1.5GB of GDDR5 display memory. They also feature large-capacity GDDR5 high-speed display memory coupled with nVidia's powerful display core, and DirectX 11 support for better detail in games. The GT780 and GT683 also have MSI's own TDE (Turbo Drive Engine) technology to instantly throttle up the system.
Accelerated dual SSD architecture: At the Computex venue, MSI will be parading its GT780 and GT683 NBs which boast accelerated dual SSD architecture. The read-write speed of one dual solid state drive alone is three times faster than traditional hard discs. The RAID 0 accelerated dual architecture not only doubles hard drive memory capacity, it enhances read-write speeds by some 70%. The GT780 and GT683 also come equipped with four DDR3 memory slots for a maximum of 16GB.
SteelSeries gaming keyboard
Gaming keyboard: To meet the needs of the serious gamer, MSI worked with leader in gaming equipment SteelSeries to craft a keyboard for the GT780 specifically with the extreme gamer in mind. Not only is it much more durable and solid to the touch, the Windows start button has been relocated to the right side of the keyboard to reduce the possibility of striking it accidently in the heat of battle. The Ctrl and Alt keys are also larger to keep you from unintentionally hitting nearby keys when the bullets are flying.
Executes 10 commands at once: Most keyboards aren't designed for gamers and don't respond readily to key combinations, adversely impacting combat capabilities. This doesn't happen on the GT780, because its gaming keyboard allows you to execute 10 commands simultaneously, enabling you to stay ahead of the game by rapidly accomplishing several missions concurrently.
Backlighting for the task at hand: The GT780 lets you choose from among five keyboard backlighting scenarios—Normal, Gaming, Wave, Breathing, and Dual Color. Gamers will also appreciate the fact that the frequently used keys W, A, S, D, and Ctrl are all backlit on the GT780, using the latest backlighting technology. Simply depress the Gaming Mode hotkey at the top of the keyboard to light up the LED backlighting at the bottom left side of the keyboard. The rest of the keyboard remains dark, so you can find the keys you need quickly even in the middle of a white-hot battle.
The GT780 comes with Dynaudio sound and a SteelSeries gaming keyboard
Cinema quality enjoyment
Cinema sound technology: To enhance sound quality, MSI joined forces with world renowned sound designers at Dynaudio to study the GT780 and GT683. They carried out vast amounts of study and countless calculations on sound field design to determine ideal locations for speakers to obtain obstruction-free sound transmission to maximize the multimedia experience. MSI also worked closely with sound design specialists at Creative to incorporate cinema-grade THX TruStudio Pro smart wrap around sound which reproduces crystal-clear sound from the GT780, GT683, and GE620 regardless of source.
Full HD display: The 17.3-inch GT780 and 15.6-inch GT683 sport full HD screens and come with Cinema Pro technology for crisper pictures and richer colors. The GT780, GT683, and GE620 also have HD720p webcams, so you can engage in clear, hiccup-free video conferences with friends and family anywhere in the world.
Latest USB3.0 ports: The GT780, GT683, and GE620 come with USB 3.0 which boasts transfer speeds of 4.8Gbps—10 times faster than USB 2.0, so a 25GB HD film transfers in just 70 seconds. It also provides 80% more power for vastly faster charging speeds for external hard drives, flash drives, and other handheld electronic devices.
Fusion of craftsmanship and style

Envelope-pushing technology and style: At the center of the GT683's cover, the white glowing letters MSI set off the black diamond design. This design is the first thing you notice when you see the GT683 professional gaming notebook. The palm rest areas are graced with a chic honeycomb pattern, the touchpad is trimmed in nickel, and the entire exterior is sheathed in MSI's own color film print to protect the GT683 from scratching and wear.
A luminescent MSI logo accentuates the metal brush finish of the GT780's magnesium-aluminum alloy cover. The flowing lines of the chassis are reminiscent of the design you might find on a high tech supercar. All of these elements come together to create a machine that marks the epitome of both style and technology.
