Following a June announcement that some of its G-series notebooks are available with Nvidia's GTX 675M graphics, MSI has now added the GTX 680M in two new flagship models.
Both the GT60 0NE-220US and the GT70 0NE-276US are shipping with the GeForce GTX 680M graphics chip that runs 1,344 Kepler cores at 720 MHz, replacing the 675M's 384 Fermi cores at 620 MHz. The 675M was essentially a rebadged GeForce GTX 580M chip.
For $1,900, the GT60 0NE-220US comes with an Intel Core i7-3610QM processor, a 15.6-inch display, 12 GB DDR3 memory, as well as a 750 GB hard drive. The GT70 0NE-276US is priced at $2,600 and has a 17.3-inch display, 16 GB DDR3 memory, as well as a 128 GB SSD in addition to the 750 hard drive.
Standard equipment on both models include a 720p webcam, a programmable, backlit Steelseries keyboard, Killer Game Networking, USB 3.0 ports, as well as gold flashed audio jack ports with an amplifier.
