MSI prepares Sandy Bridge notebooks

Written by Fuad Abazovic

GT680R gaming with GTX 460
If you are into gaming and into Core i7 laptops MSI will have something new for you, Sandy Bridge flavoured.

We got some information about 2011 models and we can tell you that the company is working on at least three new designs. They are all 15.6-inch notebooks with 1920x1080 screens and pack a high-end Core i7 2630QM CPU.

This processor has four cores and a 2.2GHz default clock, but it should be able to overclock further. Its four cores support eight threads and the CPU has 512KB L2 cache and 6MB of L3 cache. The CPU comes with Intel HD integrated graphics but MSI notebook also packs Geforce GTX 460M notebook graphics with 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory and an HD capable webcam. Let’s not forget that the CPU has a 45W TDP which is quite good for a quad-core packed with a graphics core.

This is not all as the notebook comes with 4GB of memory and up two hard drives with 500GB each. It also has a Bluray drive and nine-cell battery.

The top end system branded as GT680R comes with Win 7 Ultimate and Assassin’s Creed II, gaming mouse, gaming bag and it will be available in black - black or gray black colour options.

We don’t know the launch date but it should not be too long after New Year's.

with a 460M it has to be sometime at the very beginning of 2011 -- nvidia's 500M series will probably start hitting the stores 3 months after ces2011.

A Sleeping graphical core , i believe ?
How can their graphical cores can even be considered proper cores .

"Let’s not forget that the CPU has a 45W TDP which is quite good for a quad-core packed with a graphics core." Good to hear. This means that we'll have Optimus on core i7's too :-) Nice to hear that the quad cores are keeping in the same power envelope even with the graphics on chip, which will mean lower power consumption for all! (then again, it's 32nm so I guess it's expected?)

I have been using AMD for years, but sadly my HP laptop is starting to give up. It's impossible to find an 15"-17" AMD-powered laptop that has 1920 x 1080 resolution, and I might not be able to wait till Q3 for a Llano laptop. So I might just have to go with this one, and start saving now.

Please let us know when you find out the price of this puppy.

It's your fault to buy a HP .
That Acer 17" with FHD and a Triple core phenom is your answer , at least for now until llano , mind you , SB based laptops will be pricey .
