MSI has further expanded on its line of notebooks in India by launching a laptop specifically targeted at the gaming enthusiast. The notebook is called the GT663 and incorporated NVIDIA’s GeForece GTX460M graphics card.The GTX 460M is equipped with 1.5GB GDDR5 and is NVIDIA’s most discrete graphics card to support DirectX 11
In addition, the GTX 460M supports PhysX to fully utilize each processing core in the GeForce GPU to greatly enhance physics processing capabilities, allowing the NVIDIA PhysX software to more faithfully reproduce the universe of your choice with collapsing walls, shattered glass all over the floor, and even water that changes shape with the influence of external forces.
Tony Yang, MSI India Managing Director said, “Now, users can see individuals off in the distance or hidden in dark corners in great detail and also can see their eyes, facial features, and clothing, making it easier to distinguish friend from foe and target in on bad guys off in the distance, greatly enhancing game realism.”
The MSI GT663 also includes some astounding features, such as double Turbo Drive technology to rev up both processor and display performance. Just one touch of the luminescent Turbo hotkey above the keyboard engages the TDE+ (Turbo Drive Engine+ technology), which instantly boosts system speed for enhanced processor and display performance. Not only does it keep your system from bogging down when executing load-intensive applications, this highly responsive computer has got your back when you’re surrounded by hordes of angry goblins or careening through the universe at the speed of light.
The same luminescent hotkey also engages the Cooler Boost technology, which kicks in to ensure powerful cooling action. This offers players core temperature change and variable fan speed, allowing it to stay cool as a cucumber even when working for extended periods in high temperatures.
