A class of their own
Fusing style and technology: With a spirit characterized by attention to detail and “insist on the best,” MSI crafted the FX600 and FR600, incorporating jet black 3D totem seal coating in the cover to prevent scratching, wear, and peeling. A silver MSI logo is set in the center of the cover and the area in front of the keyboard features raised diamond texture for added comfort, giving these models a classic feel heretofore only available in handmade products.
Layered precision: MSI’s precision technology is evident in every detail of the FX600 and FR600. The chrome-plated power button is set off by a cold luminescent blue light, while the trim encircling the speakers and body give off a platinum aura. The unique chiclet keyboard, raised multi-point touchpad, and brush finish metal hotkey area underscore the quality engineering capabilities employed by MSI to merge art, fashion, and technology. MSI continues to push the fashion envelope to put taste and texture at your fingertips.
Instant added performance
Intel Core i5 processor: MSI’s FX600 and FR600 come with Intel’s Core i5 processor which offers better performance, while consuming less power and the Intel Turbo Boost and Intel® Hyper-Threading technology—dynamic performance adjustment technology to handle more data, while vastly enhancing overall system performance.
TDE technology: The FX600 and FR600 feature MSI’s own Turbo Drive Engine technology for instantly throttling up performance with one touch of the brushed metal P1 hotkey above the keyboard, so your NB can process high load applications without bogging down.
GPU Boost technology: MSI’s FX600 comes with the nVIDIA GeForce GT 325M discrete graphics card with 1GB GDDR3 of display memory for high performance. Furthermore, when your system needs extra processing power, the automatic graphics switching in MSI’s GPU Boost technology switches over to discrete graphics card mode for superior, true-to-life multimedia enjoyment. When performing general word processing tasks or browsing the Internet, it automatically cuts to the power-sipping integrated graphics chip mode.
Exceptional multimedia performance
THX smart wrap around sound: MSI and world leader in sound design technology THX worked together to incorporate professional theater-grade THX smart wrap around sound into the FX600 and FR600 NBs.
