Dynaudio Premium Sound Technology
Superior sound is made up of complex and interconnected elements, and MSI worked closely with Dynaudio to identify each one. After a thorough process of cooperative development, Dynaudio and MSI created four directions used to develop Dynaudio Premium Sound Technology, summarized below. The result of this collaboration is the GX660, a notebook for serious gamers who demand extreme audio performance.
Speaker Placement
In the past, notebook’s limited exterior space meant speaker position was an afterthought, which sacrificed audio quality. To address this shortcoming, MSI considered the speaker position in the initial stages of the GX660's development to ensure optimum audio performance.
EQ Tuning- Adjusted for Optimization of All Types of Sounds
Different types of music, whether jazz, pop, rock or classical, have distinct requirements for ideal sound. They each possess special characteristics that affect game and movie sound quality, and also have specific tone balance requirements. To express different types of music authentically, Dynaudio and MSI spent more than 1,200 hours testing and fine tuning high, mid, and low range frequencies to achieve authentic reproduction of different types of music.
Sound Card Circuit Design Optimization
Speakers and their placement aren’t the only features that affect sound performance; the audio processing center of a notebook, the sound card, also plays a decisive role. Only sound that goes through high quality sound card processing, and speaker transmission free from tonal corruption, can guarantee original sound reproduction.
Dynaudio and MSI understand the profound importance of sound card quality, and specially augmented the GX660's sound card by strengthening its circuit design to achieve an optimal configuration that allows for even cleaner and more penetrating sound. Whether playing DVDs, CDs, or Blu-ray the GX660 is capable of easily reproducing original sound and conveying every authentic acoustic detail!

DTS Surround Sensation|Ultra-PC™
In addition to the Dynaudio premium sound system, the MSI GX660 also has the DTS Surround Sensation|Ultra-PC™ to achieve superior audio performance. Whether the audio source is stereo or surround, the GX660 creates a virtual surround sound experience for you to be fully immersive. Get ready for the incredibly surround sound effect via the built-in speakers of the GX660 or the headphone-out.

Delivering full support for Microsoft DirectX® 11, the GPU enables richer and true-to-life graphics performance so that you can enjoy immersive games or movies.

Forged 3D Supercar Exterior
Continuing the unique design elements of MSI’s G-Series notebooks, the GX660 is designed to resemble a sports car hood. MSI’s white logo is set in the center of the GX660’s cover, framed by a raised a black diamond trident above a glowing red slash. With clean flowing lines and a beautiful black finish as a base, the fiery red lines represent extreme speed – both in the unit’s performance and in your experience. With MSI’s exclusive Color Film Print Technology, the GX660 has a glossy, high-end texture that is scratch and water resistant, it also serves as the notebook's ultimate protective layer.
Multi-Layered Aesthetics in Motion
The area around the keyboard is adorned with a checkered pattern, while the touch pad area features a metal line design, giving the GX660 a high-end vibe. These characteristics help transform the GX660 into a stylish, contemporary and dynamic pro gaming machine that offers gamers an all-new aesthetic experience.
Less Than 1.06 inches at its Thinnest Point
The GX660’s thinnest point is 1.06 inches, adding to the GX660's light and portable feel.
The GX660’s pulsating LED light display technology increases the sensation of instant immersion when listening to music, watching video, or while in the gaming world.

Audio Synchronize Mode
Whether listening to music, watching a video or immersed in the exciting world of gaming, simply press the MSI LED light performance control hotkey and the GX660 enters Audio Synchronize Mode. LED lights, on both sides of the notebook and at the front of the keyboard, will light up and pulse in sync with different changes in sound.
Intelligent Simulation of Sound Source
The exclusive LED performance illumination mode can also intelligently simulate sound. When the left-side speaker emits sound, the LEDs on the left side will independently illuminate, and the same on the right side. For example, when an image of a bullet passes from left to right, the noise of the bullet will also pass from left to right through the speakers, and the LED lights follow the direction of the sound, providing a three dimensional effect and making you feel as if you are in the middle of the action!

The Lifelike GX660 Breathes!

When in sleep or standby modes, you can select "breathe" (a pulsating LED light frequency) control function to give the GX660 different ways to express inactive modes.

Be Your Own Light Expert!
You can control on/off commands with the LED performance illumination hotkey, and also open the selection manual to choose detailed light performance modes, allowing you to personalize your GX660!

Latest & Fastest Data Transfer Technology USB 3.0
USB 3.0 can reach transfer rates of 4.8GB per second, 10 times the bandwidth of the current USB 2.0. A 27GB HD file (about as large as a 4 hour HD video) can be transferred within 70 seconds, so HD video and 3D game playback speeds are even faster. USB 3.0 is also capable of executing read/write data operations, while USB 2.0 can only execute unidirectional document transfers in the same amount of time.
High-Definition Multimedia Interface
The GX660’s HDMI output not only delivers super-fast 5GB per second data rates, but it also reduces cable clutter while ensuring the best possible video quality. By taking advantage of HDMI, the GX660 can render game scenes with spectacular clarity and realism, making it a great choice for the next generation of both PC and online games.
