MSI + DYNAUDIO = New Standard of Gaming Notebook

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.
 
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 GT680R's development to ensure optimum audio performance.
Optimized Speaker Design
GT680R speakers, having undergone design optimization, are capable of transmitting authentic audio without sound degradation. With improved sound permeability, listeners won't feel sharp sounds and will experience less interference. Audio will sound thoroughly clear and lifelike. High, mid, and low range frequencies are also more balanced, giving an impression of layered and transparent audio that makes listeners feel like they are in a sound stage.

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 GT680R'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 GT680R is capable of easily reproducing original sound and conveying every authentic acoustic detail!
 

THX TruStudio PRO™ Provides Excellent Surround Sound Effect

THX TruStudio Pro provides the latest groundbreaking technologies that are products of years of collective experience and research by Creative and THX. Together, these technologies deliver the fullest audio experience for music, movies and games, while remaining true to the source and intention of the artists who created it.

16:9 Full HD LED Backlit Display
The 15.6" Full HD screen of the GT680R delivers more details of the high definition content; brings you more pleasure while playing games or watching movies.
Style Perfected

Forged 3D Supercar Exterior
Continuing the unique design elements of MSI's G-Series notebooks, the illuminating MSI logo, which symbolizes the GT680R's uniqueness, expands outward. With clean flowing lines and a beautiful black finish as a base, the fiery red lines act as visual ornamentation symbolizing a sensation of extreme speed, giving the G-Series a sense of flawless perfection. Using IMR technology, the GT680R is not only strikingly beautiful, but is also more comfortable to the touch. With a glossy, high-end texture that is scratch and wear 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 GT680R a high-end vibe. These characteristics help transform the GT680R into a stylish, contemporary and dynamic pro gaming machine that offers gamers an all-new aesthetic experience.
Exclusive LED Light Display Technology
The GT680R'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 GT680R 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 GT680R Breathes!

When in sleep or standby modes, you can select "breathe" (a pulsating LED light frequency) control function to give the GT680R 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 GT680R!

Exclusive Cinema Pro Technology
Cinema Pro Technology offers consumers the finest movie viewing experience - with a simple touch, you can immediately switch to Movie Mode. The picture quality on screen is accompanied by heavy bass to recreate the experience of being in a movie theater.

 
Latest & Fastest Data Transfer Technology USB 3.0
USB 3.0 can reach transfer rates of 4.8GB per second. 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 GT680R'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 GT680R can render game scenes with spectacular clarity and realism, making it a great choice for the next generation of both PC and online games.

Convenient Wireless Networking
With its 802.11b/g/n(draft) wireless LAN and Bluetooth networking interfaces, the GT680R provides a variety of ways to connect to, browse, and retrieve data on both your own devices and the online universe.
Built-in HD Webcam
The GT680R's webcam captures genuine 720p high-definition (HD) video quality at 30 frames per second (fps), which means it transmits 30 continuous images per second to give smooth, natural progression without jerkiness; ordinary webcams offer only 8fps. This guarantees truly clear and smooth video and picture quality and exceptional audio effects. In addition, the 16:9 HD wide-screen video displays can be used with all kinds of social networking media, allowing optimum high-quality video communication and production of HD videos for the enjoyment of friends and family.
