PostSubject: MSI GX660R: GT660 re-incarnated   Tue Nov 02, 2010 5:44 am

NetEssentials sent us this new gaming laptop but after unboxing it, I thought I already reviewed the unit before until I saw what’s inside — this MSI GX660R is like the reincarnate of the MSI GT660.

First off, the body and design is exactly the same as the old one. The main difference between this and the GT660 is the graphics card (a Radeon HD 5870) although the CPU was also bumped up from a base of 1.6GHz to 1.73GHz. And while the RAM is now down from 6GB to 4GB, MSI configured the two 500GB HDD to become a single 1TB drive with Raid 0 which could benefit from faster file reads.

MSI GX660R specs:
15.6″ display @ 1366×768 pixels
Intel Core i7 740QM 1.73GHz (4 Cores, 8 Threads, Turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 VRAM
1TB SATA HDD (2x500GB on Raid 0)
4GB DDR3 RAM (2 x 2GB Dual Channel)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2 x USB 2.0 ports
2 x USB 3.0 ports
1 x HDMI port
1 x eSATA port
4-in-1 card reader
9-cell Li-Ion battery 7800mAh
