First MSI laptops with Intel Sandy Bridge processors

Monday, November 29th, 2010

As I have mentioned in Gamingonlaptops, MSI is about to launch two gaming laptops with Intel Sandy Bridge processors: the GT680 (with Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M graphics) and GX680 (with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6870 graphics). As far as I know, these are the first announced laptops with Intel Sandy Bridge processors. They are expected in January 2011.
