THX TruStudio Pro Provides Excellent Surround Sound Effect

 

A Paradigm of Cutting-Edge Performance

Style Perfected

 

 


Exclusive LED Performance Illumination Technology
This exclusive, dazzling LED performance illumination technology increases the sensation of instant immersion when listening to music, watching video, or while wrapped up in the gaming world, thanks to changes in the GT680's cool LED lights.

 

Audio Synchronize Mode
When listening to music, watching a video or when knee-deep in the exciting world of gaming, simply press the MSI LED light performance control hotkey and the GT680 enters Audio Synchronize Mode. Then, the GT680's LED lights on both sides of the notebook and at the front of the keyboard will light up all at once. The light performance will follow different changes in sound, allowing you to unconsciously follow the rhythm of the dynamic lighting and envelop yourself in an atmosphere of sound and light that will leave you breathless!

 

 

 

 

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 then light up in conjunction with the direction of the sound moving from left to right, giving images and sound a three dimensional effect and making you feel as if you are in the midst of authentic and dynamic reverberations!

 

 

The Lifelike GT680 Breathes!
When in sleep or standby modes, you can select "breathe" (a pulsating LED light frequency) control function to give the GT680 different ways to express inactive modes. Just like an actual person resting, the GT680 is lifelike.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 GT680!


Enjoy Entertainment in Multiple Extremes

 

 

Exclusive Cinema Pro Technology
Cinema Pro Technology offers consumers the finest movie viewing experience. Just need to push the Cinema Pro button, the Windows Media Player will automatically open. The quality on screen will be more detailed, the richness in sound as well as THX TruStudio Pro surround sound effect will be activated, providing the finest sensory of the theaters.

 



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.

 

 

 

Built-in HD Webcam
Genuine 720p high-definition (HD) video quality to 30fps (30 continuous images per second Allowing smooth, natural progression without jerkiness; ordinary webcams only offer 8fps). This guarantees truly clear and smooth video and picture quality and exceptional audio effects. In addition, the 16:9 HD wide-screen video display 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.

 

 

 

High-Definition Multimedia Interface 
The GT680 ‘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 GT680 can render game scenes with spectacular clarity and realism, making it a great choice for the next generation of both PC and online games.

 

Independent Numerical Keypad 
The GT680 features a numerical keypad that provides a desktop-quality typing experience. For uers often needing to key in numbers, the GT680’s keyboard is a huge boon.
