With Nvidia Geforce GTX 675M graphics


MSI announced that it is now shipping the latest version of its 17-inch GT70 gaming notebook, which will pack Nvidia's Geforce GTX 675M graphics card.

In addition to the GT70, MSI squeezed in two other notebooks that will be known as GE70 and GE60 lineups. Both are based on the HM76 chipset, rather than the HM77 seen on the GT70, and paired up with Geforce GTX 660M graphics card.

The GE60 will feature a smaller 15.6-inch 1920x1080p screen. Also, the entire lineup will have Intel Core i7-3610QM CPU and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS.

The HM77 and Core i7-3610QM 17.3-inch 1920x1080p GT70 model will be paried up with Nvidia Geforce GTX 675M GPU with 4GB or 2GB of memory depending on the SKU. It will feature up to 16GB of memory, Killer E2200 network card, SteelSeries programmable backlit keyboard and a 9-cell battery, a must when you are powering a 17-inch screen. The HDD option include two 64 SSDs in RAID paried up with a 750GB HDD or 1.5TB of HDD space (2x750GB) depending on the SKU.

In case you missed our earlier posts, the Geforce GTX 675M is based on 40nm Kepler GPU with up to 384 processing cores, 620MHz GPU clock. The 2GB or 4GB of memory should be clocked at 1500MHz and paired up with a 256-bit memory interface.

This makes the GE60 model a bit more interesting as the Geforce GTX 660M is actually based on 28nm Kepler GPU with up to 384 processing cores and a 835MHz GPU clock. It has up to 2GB of GDDR5 memory running at 2000MHz and paired up with a 128-bit memory interface.

The price starts at US $2199.99 for the top GT70 SKU and go as low as US $1299.99 for the one GE60 SKU. Unfortunately, the actual release date haven't been announced but we are sure that these will show up pretty soon.

You can check out the rest of the SKU details below.
