VIP Readies For MSIs New Top-Of-The-Line Gaming Notebooks

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Warrington, United Kingdom -- VIP Computers, one of the largest independent distributors of components, peripherals and consumer products is readying for two MSI top-of-the-line notebooks, offering up some of the best gaming specifications and options that MSI have ever launched.

Joining VIPs portfolio in September is the MSI GT683DX, this new 15.6-inch full HD powerhouse brings a quad-core Intel Core i7 2630QM processor to the mobile fight, along with up to 16GB of DDR3 memory and a GeForce GTX 570M graphics card with 1.5GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory.

The GT683DX will ship with a total of four DDR3 memory slots and the notebook can support expansion up to 16 GBs of DDR3 1066/1333 MHz RAM. Based on these specs, the machine will gain a 3DMark Vantage benchmark score of 12,475 points (a very good score) and high-resolution gaming is hiccup-free for the GT683DX.

Continuing their push into mobile gaming, the MSI GT780DXR will form part of VIPs line up as well in September. MSI has teamed up with premium gaming peripheral maker SteelSeries to create the keyboard for this notebook while upgrade options of up to 32GB of RAM and dual hard drives ensures that its performance is only limited by the size of your wallet.

Also sporting Intel's second generation Core i7 quad core CPU and nVidias DirectX 11-supporting GeForce GTX 570M discrete graphic card, the performance of the GT780DXR will be one of the best in the market.

Dave Stevinson, VIPs sales director said: The GT780 is MSI's most ambitious attempt to make its mark in the gaming notebook segment and one that we are really excited to get behind. There is definitely a growing market for specially designed gaming notebooks with gaming-optimised keyboards, 3D support and simulated surround audio which deliver a truly immersive user experience.

VIP will support these products with an advertising campaign, direct mail and social networking support.

John Inwood, MSIs UK Marketing Manager commented: These two new MSI gaming notebooks heralds the arrival of a brilliant new generation of computing experience, featuring the ultimate in gaming performance and hardware. VIP have been delivering consistent value across our entire range and their strength in the retail gaming sector will be vital as we push for market share with these new products in the UK.
