Reviews for the MSI CX620-i5447BW7P

50% MSI CX620 notebook

There are a few things about the MSI CX620 we'd like to change: the layout of the keyboard and the location of the USB 2.0 ports, and we'd give it a less glossy screen and install a faster hard drive. It's still a decent notebook for everyday tasks and home entertainment, but we wouldn't go out of our way to find it in a store. MSI is no longer selling the CX620, but it is still available from some retailers.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
