We got some mode details about MSI's upcoming gaming notebooks, powered by Sandy Bridge. MSI plans yet another gaming notebook but this time it wants to power it with ATI HD 6870 graphics card with 1GB GDDR5 memory.
The notebook has a 15.6-inch FHD glare screen with 1920x1080 resolution and it comes with massive 8GB DDR II (4x2GB) and 750GB hard drive. It ships with Windows 7 Home Premium, has super multi-touch and Intel Condor Peak 1000 wireless card with 802.11 b/g/n support.
It has Intel HM65 chips and Core i7 2630 QM a 2.2GHz default clocked quad-core, but it should be able to overclock further via Turbo. The new Sandy Bridge supports eight threads and the CPU has 512KB L2 cache and 6MB of L3 cache.
GX680 FHD comes in black and ships with a notebook bag, mouse and Assassin's Creed II game. It should be available in February / March time and should sell for saucy €1,799 suggested retail price.
So I guess you just need to watch out for GX680 FHD and GT680R we wrote about here.
On the other hand GT680R should be available in first week of January.
