MSI FX420 Notebook
If you’re looking for superior performance and the ultimate multimedia experience—and who isn’t?—look no further. The new MSI FX420 and FX620DX not only pack Intel second generation Core CPUs, both of these mean machines sport high-end discrete graphics cards to meet the needs of extreme gamers. The FX620DX, in particular, comes with the nVidia GeForce GT540M discrete graphics card and Intel Core i7 quad core processor for adrenaline-pumping speeds.
Screaming system performance
Intel second generation Core i processors: MSI’s FX620DX and FX420 feature the Intel powerful Core i7-2630QM quad core processor (2.00GHz) and Core i5-2410M™ dual core processor (2.30GHz), respectively. Both support Intel’s Turbo Boost 2.0 to analyze processor workload and automatically allocate processor resources to throttle up core clocks to enhance computing performance.
nVidia and AMD discrete graphics cards: The FX620DX and FX420 come equipped with the nVidia GeForce GT540M and AMD Radeon HD 6470M discrete graphics cards, respectively. Both have 1GB DDR3 of internal memory and support Direct11. Both support MSI GPU Boost which automatically kicks the system over to discrete graphics card mode when the CPU is processing high-load applications to give you superior graphics processing capabilities. When performing general word processing tasks or browsing the Internet, it cuts to the power-sipping integrated graphics chip mode, striking the ideal balance between performance and battery life.
Classically stylish, low power consumption
Perfect fusion of style and technology: The jet black lids of the FX620DX and FX420 laptops are sheathed in non-peeling raised texture seal coating to prevent scratching and smudging. The centers are graced with MSI’s glowing platinum logo and the palm rest areas with a soft raised checkered coating that not only pampers the hands, but adds a touch of class. In addition, the power button is encircled by chrome which does a beautiful job of setting off the cold, luminescent blue lights above the keyboard. The unassuming platinum trim around the speakers and body as well as the unmatched Chiclet keyboard and raised multipoint touchpad further underscore the tasteful class of these elegant machines.
Shortcuts: Located above the keyboards of the FX620DX and FX420 are six shortcut buttons. With just one click, you can eject a DVD, turn off the screen, or turn on the S-Bar, Turbo Battery+, or Cinema Pro, so when you’re going to be away from your computer for a few minutes, you can quickly shut off the display, so as to not waste battery power.
Latest USB3.0 ports: The FX620DX and FX420 come with USB3.0 which boasts transfer speeds of 4.8Gbps—10 times faster than USB2.0, so a 25Gb HD film transfers in just 70 seconds. It also provides 80% more power for vastly faster charging speeds for external hard drives, flash drives, and other handheld electronic devices.
ECO Engine: ECO Engine power-saving green technology lets you select from among five power management levels—Video Game, Film, Presentation, Word Processing, and Turbo Battery, to automatically adjust display brightness and processor performance settings to reduce power use and maximize battery use per charge.
