Beautifully designed, sporty design, hardware configuration no less competitive than desktop PCs, MSI’s gaming console makes it easy to complete tests at Test Labs with remarkable scores.
The MSI GT683DXR hardware configuration consists of a quad-core Core i7-2630QM (2.0GHz, 6MB L3 cache), capable of automatically acclimating to 3.5GHz with Turbo Boost technology. In addition, the GT683DXR is equipped with a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX560M graphics card, four RAM slots with a total of 16GB of memory, two traditional HDDs with a total storage capacity of 1TB (terabyte). The default operating system comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
In addition to system performance evaluation tools such as WorldBench 6, CineBench R11.5, Test Lab also tested some of the heavyweights Far Cry 2 (DirectX 10), Lost Planet 2 (DirectX 11), Metro 2033 (DirectX 11) and Just Cause 2 (DirectX 1, Desert Sunri)
In general, the test results show that MSI’s “gaming machine” gently completes tests with respectable scores. Powered by quad-core Core i7-2630QM and GeForce GTX560M graphics cards, the MSI GT683DXR scores 146 at WorldBench 6. In 3D graphics tests with Cinebench R11.5 (64 bit), the machine achieved 4.35 points on CPU tests and 39.22 frames per second on OpenGL tests.
Equally impressive is the HDD component score at the ATTO test, which shows that the data access speed is comparable to that of a SATA 2 SSD with a read speed of 165.7 MB / S and 199.9MB / s.
On actual battery life, the GT683DXR reaches 3 hours 18 minutes when running multi-tasking with the MobileMark 2007 tool; Pretty good compared to the gaming laptop.
In addition to the system performance evaluation tools, Test Lab also tested some of the heavyweights Far Cry 2 (DirectX 10), Lost Planet 2 (DirectX 11), Metro 2033 (DirectX 11) and Just Cause 2 (DirectX 1, Desert Sunrise scenario).
At 1280×720 (HD 720p) resolution, high-quality graphics settings, 4xAA and 16xAF, GT683DXR can flip through most test games with average frame rates higher than 30 fps. In that Just Cause 2 reached 116.37 fps, higher than the benchmark of 3.88, Metro 2033 reached 31.09 fps and lowest was Lost Planet 2 with 26.9 fps.

Also keeping up the high quality graphics setting, 4xAA and 16xAF, Test Lab pushed the resolution to full HD (1920×1280), the average frame rate of Far Cry and Just Cause 2 was still above 30 fps. Metro 2033 dropped to 24.68 fps and Lost Planet 2 was only 18.3 fps.
So, with heavy games at full HD resolution, gamers can still fine-tune the graphics quality level, reduce AA anti-aliasing, AF or some other visual effects to improve the speed image processing in the game.
