The turbo fan. The turbo fan is designed to drastically increase fan speed when the laptop overheats. While this is a great quality to the laptop, it has not been tweaked to perfection. The turbo fan does not always kick in when the laptop overheats, and there is no easy way for the user to manually turn on the turbo fan.

MSI GT683DXR gaming laptop review
Source: Gadgetmix English
With all the orange lights, we might have expected a backlit keyboard, though just an avarage typing experience would have made this a quite briliant notebook. But for anyone wanting top-notch capaabilities, get your hands on an external keyboard, and perhaps a gamer’s mouse, and the MSI GT683DXR is a superlative notebook.

MSI GT683DXR review

You know the idiom: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Well, MSI, unfortunately some of it is broken, but by and large, the GT683DXR manages to pack quite a punch -- a surprisingly long lasting one at that -- and does it all for an admirable price. As with all things, there are niggles, sure, but when it comes down to it, you'll be hard-pressed to find more bang for your mobile gaming buck.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570M: High-end mobile GPU based on a stripped down GF114 chip.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
