The Taiwanese manufacturer of computers and components, MSI, has reportedly started selling its latest high-performance laptop dubbed GT783. According to the maker, this portable computer is targeted towards gamers/multimedia enthusiasts and features a quad-core CPU, Dynaudio speakers, backlit keyboard and a mighty graphics controller.

The GT783 is supposedly powered by a second generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core i7-2670QM central processing unit clocked at 2.2GHz (the frequency goes up to 3.1GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0). Furthermore, users are provided with an Anti-Reflective widescreen display that measures 17.3 inches in diagonal and has a native resolution of 1920-by-1080 pixels (Full HD).

MSI’s new powerful laptop is based on the Intel HM67 chipset and utilizes an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M GPU with 2GB of dedicated DDR5 VRAM. This is currently the fastest notebook graphics card that fully supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0. Moreover, customers will presumably be able to take advantage of 16GB of internal DDR3 memory, a 128GB SSD and a 750GB HDD that rotates at 7200RPM.

The GT783 ships with Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth modules. In addition, there are three USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports along with an HMDI output and 7-in-1 card reader slot. An integrated 720p HD web camera is also available for video conferencing.

Reportedly, this new gaming notebook will come with a pre-installed 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium operating system and a 9-cell Lithium-ion battery. Other features include a THX TruStudio Pro audio, Dynaudio premium speakers (with subwoofer) and a Blu-ray optical drive.

The MSI GT783 can now be purchased and is priced at $2,499.99.
