Faster & More Efficient GX60


April 17, 2013, Taipei, Taiwan - MSI NOTEBOOK is pleased to announce a refresh of the GX60, GX60 Hitman Edition, is now available in Australia.

Originally built to provide the best gaming performance-per-dollar, this notebook continues the tradition with an update to AMD's™ latest and greatest mobile APU, the A10-5750M, for improved speeds, battery life and performance-per-watt. Along with a new APU, GX60 Hitman Edition comes with an exclusive-to-GX60 Hitman bundle.

The GX60 Hitman Edition comes with a Steam access code for Hitman: Absolution, an exclusive SilverBaller dog tag that can't be found anywhere else and a Hitman Absolution themed mouse pad containing Hitman Absolution hotkeys.

AMD HD7970M 2GB Graphics Card for High-End Gaming

The GX60 Hitman Edition gaming notebook packs one of the fastest mobile GPUs around, the latest high-end AMD HD7970M 3D discrete graphics card with 2GB GDDR5 memory which supports DirectX 11 for smoother 3D animation and graphics more lifelike and nuanced than ever before.

This high-end AMD GPU paired with the AMD 10-5750M processor can power the latest games at full HD resolution on high or ultra-high settings.

15.6” Full HD LED-Backlit Panel or Up to Three Displays with ATI Eyefinity

Experience sharp, bright and detailed graphics with the 15.6” anti-glare 1920 x 1080 resolution LED-backlit display featured on the GX60. The matte finish of the display was chosen with gamers in mind so that glare doesn't hinder gaming sessions.

Up to three LCDs can be hooked up to the GX60 Hitman Edition through the available HDMI 1.4b, Display Port 1.2 and VGA ports for super high 4096 x 2160 resolution. Enjoy massive desktop workspaces or ultra-immersive visual environments with ATI Eyefinity with the convenience of the highly portable GX60 notebook.

SteelSeries Professional Gaming Keyboard

The GX60 has a sturdy and spacious SteelSeries professional gaming keyboard that provides solid tactile feedback on each key press that just feels right. The keyboard is also built solid with double the durability of regular notebook keyboards. Additionally, the Windows key was moved to the right side to avoid accidental disruptions while gaming.

Clean and Crisp Audio Through Speakers or Headphones

Enjoy premium sound both through headphones or speakers. MSI's Audio Boost sound technology ensures that gamers can enjoy distortion-free and static-free audio. The gold -plated audio jack ensures better transmission performance and reduced noise, which means cleaner, crisper stereo sound reproduction.

In addition, the GX60 Hitman Edition boasts a built-in amplifier to ensure top-quality sound in high-end headphones. AudioBoost allows all the fine details to be heard, whether subtleties in music or footsteps from far away while gaming.

Experience surprisingly high quality sound typically unexpected of notebooks from the GX60's speakers, thanks to the Dynaudio sound system. Even more, with the inclusion of THX TruStudio Pro technology provides virtual surround sound when sitting in the sweet spot in front of the GX60.

Optimized Speeds with Professional Killer Gaming Networking

Never experience lag as a result of downloading files while online gaming. The Professional Killer Game Networking prioritizes gaming packet data. With the lower latency, gamers enjoy a slight edge over the competition.
