MSI has upgraded its MS G series gaming laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M GPU. It is the fastest Kepler-based chip from NVIDIA's current arsenal of notebook GPUs.
Just recently, we reviewed the MSI GT70 and we were quite satisfied with its overall performance; however, its GeForce GTX 670M GPU is based on the GF114 Fermi core. Now, MSI has decided to upgrade the flagship models from its GT70 and GT60 gaming laptop series with the GeForce GTX 680M that features the newer GK104 Kepler core.
At a price point of US$2,600, the GT70 0NE-276US features dual 128GB SSDs in RAID configuration, in tandem with a 750GB HDD. It is installed with 16GB of RAM and a Blu-ray burner that allows you to enjoy your Blu-ray content on its 17.3-inch screen. The GT60 0NE-220US is available for US$1,900. It features a smaller screen measuring 15.6-inch and has 12GB of system memory. Both gaming laptops feature the GeForce GTX 680M GPU, with 4GB of GDDR5 video memory.
