The Real Deal: A Keyboard Made Just for Gamers

 

MSI and internationally renowned manufacturer of professional gaming peripherals and accessories, SteelSeries, collaborated to create a laptop keyboard that is designed specifically with gamers in mind.

 

Perfect Position !

                                                                                                                                                  

Golden Triangle

MSI identified the keys used most by gamers and fine-tuned their sizes and locations
to make them even more intuitive for gamers.
 

 

Just Solid !

MSI has improved the resilience and tactile feedback of each and every key. Users will no longer have to deal with flimsy keys. Each time a key is pressed, the tip of the finger receives genuine tactile feedback and a solid rebound. This means that users can enjoy crisp keyboard action without getting tired during extended use.

Full Color Backlight (limited regions)

You can choose from more than 1,000 color combinations and 5 scenario modes with the keyboard LED Manager(KLM).

 
 

Unprecedented Extreme Performance

Dual SATA hard drives (maximum capacity 1.5 TB)

 

 

   

Exclusive Turbo Drive Engine(TDE)

 

DDR3 SO-DIMM x 4 slot Design Easily Doubles Performance

 

Three-dimensional, exquisite, and realistic gaming screen

GX780 has a 17-inch Full HD screen, which projects a vibrant visual effect. The NVIDIA Geforce GT 555M video card with a 1GB GDDR5 memory and its powerful GPU gives this notebook an extraordinary gaming performance. Turning off the “Render details” option is no longer required as all frames will be rendered smoothly. The Geforce GPU also supports NVIDIA 3D vision, providing the notebook with an extremely realistic 3D experience. The GX780 is fully compatible with DX11, which provides all the advantages of the latest drawing standards.

 
 
 

Stunning Audio Performance

MSI Premium Sound Technology



 

 

 

 

Hollywood cinema audio standard provides excellent surround sound effect





 

Speaker Placement

In order to present the best sound effects, the GT780/GX780 speakers are uniquely configured. Besides the two side speakers projected toward the user, there is also a subwoofer sound hole at the bottom. This configuration immerses gamers into a realistic, three-dimensional battlefield experience.

 

Aerodynamics Design

The exterior design of the GX780 combines the classic, succinct appearance of a limousine with the aerodynamic contour of a spacecraft creating a low-key composure but powerful image. The black casing of the GT780/GX780 is specially covered with brushed aluminum, coupled with the silver msi logo, it makes the GT780/GX780 a symbol of the coexistence of textural quality and ultimate performance.

   

To avoid accidentally touching the touch pad while gaming, the GT780/GX780 is equipped with a control switch for the touch pad on the side of the keyboard
