New Level of Sound and Performance
MSI + Dynaudio = New Standard of Gaming Notebook


Dynaudio Premium Sound Technology

The complex and interconnected elements that comprise excellent sound were painstakingly identified one by one to ascertain how to systematically develop the proper notebook technologies. After undergoing a very long process of cooperative development, Dynaudio and MSI have come up with the GX660. The four directions used to develop Dynaudio Premium Sound Technology are summarized below. For serious gamers who demand extreme audio performance, the GX660 is the best and only choice!

 

Speaker Placement

In the past, limited space on notebooks meant speaker position was always considered last, which resulted in muddled sound in notebook speakers. Because of this, speaker position was considered during the initial stages of the GX660's development to facilitate optimum audio performance and to avoid sacrificing audio quality for incorrect speaker placement.

 

 

EQ Tuning─ Adjusted for Optimization of All Types of Sounds

Different types of music represent distinct requirements for sound ambience. Jazz, pop, rock, or classical all possess special characteristics that affect computer game and movie sound performance and each has specific tone balance requirements. To express different types of music authentically, Dynaudio and MSI spent over 1,200 hours of continuous, repetitive testing and fine tuning of high, mid, and low range frequencies so authentic reproduction of different types of music can be achieved.

 

Sound Card Circuit Design Optimization

Speakers and their placement are not the only things 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, so the GX660's sound card was specially augmented by strengthening its sound card circuit design to achieve an optimal configuration that allows for even cleaner and more penetrating sound. Whether playing DVDs, CDs, or Blu-ray DVDs, the GX660 is capable of easily reproducing original sound and conveying every authentic acoustic detail!

 


When listening to a symphony orchestra, you'll be able to truly sense the relative position of each instrument and the size and power of each instrument's sound, as if an orchestra were playing right in front of you!

 

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.


The Best and Only Choice

A Paradigm of Cutting-Edge Performance
Style Perfected

Elegant, Flowing Lines Symbolize Excellence


Continuing the unique design elements of MSI’s G-Series notebooks, the illuminating MSI logo, which symbolizes the GX660'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. Thanks to the MSI exclusive Color Film Print Technology, the GX660 is not only strikingly beautiful, but is also more comfortable to the touch. With 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 totem pattern, while the touch pad area also has a metal line design, giving the GX660 a layered appearance that gives off a distinctly out of the ordinary, high-end vibe. These characteristics help transform the GX660 into a stylishly contemporary and dynamic pro gaming machine that offers gamers an all-new aesthetic experience.

   

Less Than 27mm at its Thinnest Point  

Compared to other brands on the market, the GX660’s thinnest point doesn’t surpass 27mm, adding to the GX660's sprightly and portable feel.

 

 

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 GX660'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 GX660 enters Audio Synchronize Mode. Then, the GX660'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 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. Just like an actual person resting, the GX660 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 GX660!
