After just releasing the ultra-powerful GT680R, MSI decides to reveal four more upcoming laptops with the updated Sandy Bridge architecture. This announcement comes just weeks after the reveal of models FX400, FX603 and the FX700, all of which do not include the 2nd generation Intel core processors. In terms of muscle, today’s newly announced laptops won’t be standing toe-to-toe with the GT680R, but they will indeed still be above-average machines with sleek looks. Among these four new laptops are the FR620, FX620, FR720 and FX720.
In regards to specifications, the 15.6-inch FX620 and 17.3-inch FX720 will have the more powerful graphics with the discrete, 1GB VRAM Nvidia GT520M video card compared to the integrated graphics of the FR620 and FR720. Other than this main difference, however, almost all other features remain the same. All laptops are expected to include four speakers, 720p webcam, dual USB 3.0 ports, HDMI-out, an optional Blu-ray drive and the i-Charge function, which will speed up the charging rate of USB-charging devices. Of course, the now standard features such as 802.11n wireless, multi-card reader and Bluetooth 2.1 will also be built-in.
Prices and availability of the new notebooks have yet to be announced.
