MSI Announces New GT627 Gaming Notebook Featuring NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GS OC3D Official Press Release logo

MSI Computer, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, is pleased to announce the newest addition to its Gaming Notebook Series – GT627. The new GT627 is the first in the MSI Gaming Notebook series to feature the NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GS graphics processing unit (GPU). This revolutionary GPU delivers blazing-fast mobile gaming and supports NVIDIA CUDA™ technology enabling MSI customers to experience the wide range of CUDA-based applications—such as heart-stopping GPU-accelerated game physics and video conversion. The GeForce 9800M GS also saves power and increases computing efficiently by handling video decoding, allowing the CPU to focus on other tasks.

MSI GT627 notebook“We are excited to offer the NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GS GPU in the GT627 Gaming Notebooks,” said Andy Tung, Vice President of Sales, MSI US. “This GPU will allow us optimize performance and deliver unparalleled graphics for gamers on-the-go.”

“Whether viewing or editing photos, finding directions, playing a game, or watching a hi-def movie, the MSI GT627 with the NVIDIA® GeForce® 9800M GS GPU runs silky smooth, with amazing visuals,” said Rene Haas, General Manager of the notebook business unit at NVIDIA. “ With the GeForce 9800M GS handling the graphics, video and physics acceleration, MSI customers will be ready for the visual computing movement.”

MSI has also equipped the GT627 with a spacious 15.4” WSXGA (1680x1050) LCD, 2W internal speakers, and weight cartridge laser mouse to enhance the mobile gaming experience. The GT627 also features MSI’s proprietary Turbo Drive Engine, which can overclock the notebook’s Intel Core 2 Duo Processor (Penryn, FSB 1066) by as much as 15% at the touch of a button when in AC mode. When on the go, users can conserve the GT627’s battery by taking advantage of the MSI’s Eco Engine technology to switch between five power settings to ensure efficient power consumption.

MSI housed the powerful GT627 in its stylish anodized brushed aluminum gaming case. This solid enclosure features stamped aluminum sheeting in both the LCD lid and palm rest for increased protection and durability. However, despite the reinforced casing and a 6-cell battery, the GT627 weighs just over six pounds making it one of the most portable gaming notebooks in its class. Additionally, MSI also included an 802.11 b/g/n wireless modem and a Blu-ray player to make it a true mobile entertainment center.

8 drives is too many.

I'd go for RAID 5 (3 drives) and an extra drive (maybe a Raptor) just in case. I hope you've got a NAS or similar too?

Hmm you could revert back to 6 drives, but after that you really start losing either capacity (raid 10, 50% loss) or redundancy (raid0, 1 drive dead = problem). A single raid 5 would increase performance over plain disks a bit, but not a lot. And the whole point of the HDD collection was performance.

I get that :) it just doesn't seem practical. I hate the fact pc cases take up so much room, i think the v1000 i have is huuuge. Maybe I can have all my storage elsewhere but then the network speed would be the limitation...


Okay, anyone remember the eVGA 131-K8-NF44 mATX SLI?

Any SLI mATX mobo's for i7 in the works???

It's like everything I want doesn't exist yet! :(

Legend!

Looking at the config two 295's will block all expansion slots so no soundcard/raid card... Maybe on eof these might work in this case

I was thinking small ATX case/ATX mobo like like this


I'm thinking getting a 1000w+ psu, two double slot gpu's, water cooling, soundcard and raid card is going to be... A tall order...


TTL, you think you can make it happen?

I know, that is out the window! ATX in the smallest ATX case I can get away with!

I PM'd TTL to get some options going...

Can't u just hacksaw off the bits of the mobo u don't think u'll need ?

Floppy connectors and serial busses just get in the way imo.
