A few weeks ago we informed you that MSI had recently launched its new GX780 and GT780R gaming laptops, which as we previously mentioned come with a 17.3-inch full HD display and a SteelSeries multicolor backlit keyboard. Now we have received word that the company has just introduced the new GE620DX quad-core gaming laptop.

According to a recent article over at tweaktown.com, the GE620DX comes with an Intel second-generation quad-core i7-2630QM processor (with core speeds of 2.00GHz) under its hood. The processor also supports Intel’s Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which boosts core clock speeds and enhances the overall performance of the device.

In terms of graphics, the MSI GE620DX gaming laptop comes with NVIDIA’s high-end GeForce GT 555M discrete graphics card, with 2GB of display memory. The GE620DX also supports NVIDIA’s PhysX technology and DirectX 11, which provides users with more detailed and realistic graphics. It also comes with Quick Sync Video support.

The Quick Sync Video support will boost the laptop’s efficiency when ripping, synchronizing or editing multimedia files. The GE620DX also comes with MSI GPU Boost Technology support, which will automatically switch back and forth between the NVIDIA discrete graphics card and the graphics chip depending on what task it is undertaking at the time.

For example, if your laptop is processing graphics-heavy applications it will automatically switch to the discrete graphics card mode. However, if it is simply performing general word processing tasks or just browsing the Internet, it will kick into the integrated graphics chip mode. This of course gives the ideal balance between battery life and performance.

As for sound, the MSI GE620DX not only comes with MSI’s Premium Sound, it also features THX TruStudio Pro smart surround sound technology. It also comes with Cinema Pro technology. One simple touch of the Cinema Pro hotkey will instantly switch you to film mode for richer colors and a higher resolution.

The MSI GE620DX also boasts a 720p web camera, which will provide users with high definition pictures when video chatting with friends and family. It also comes with an HDMI port, enabling users to connect it to a large screen TV, and USB 3.0 ports. AS some of you will already know, USB 3.0 ports boast transfer speeds of 4.8Gbps (10 times faster than USB 2.0).
