MSI releases Centrino 2-based gaming notebooks

updated 12:45 pm EDT, Mon August 4, 2008

MSI GX620 and GX720

MSI today took the wraps from its first North American portables to use Intel's Centrino 2 platform. Both the 15.4-inch GX620 and 17-inch GX720 both pick up a new Intel chipset that includes faster Core 2 Duo processors and the accompanying improvements to battery life. Like a handful of earlier MSI notebooks, either comes with hardware controls that can either overclock the CPU up to 15 percent above stock levels or alternately switch to one of five energy presets that either save battery life or stress performance.

The two systems also come with NVIDIA's GeForce 9600M GT, which gives them both modern mid-range notebook graphics; 802.11n Wi-Fi, a two-megapixel webcam and a 320GB hard drive are all standard across both systems. The larger GX720 adds a four-satellite, one-subwoofer speaker system for those using the PC as an all-in-one desktop replacement.

MSI doesn't provide pricing or ship dates for either of the GX systems, which have varying processors and RAM depending on the vendor. Both should ship to resellers the US.
