GTX560M overclock to 870MHz/1625MHz test
Turn on Turbo function and use MSI Afterburner software to overclock.

3DMark Vantage - P11639

StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1920 X 1080 => 149.32 FPS

1920 X 1080 => 2181

After overclocked, it will get around 15% gaming performance increase, P11639 score is really high of notebook platform.
If you sense the GPU is hot after overclock, you could press the fan icon on left side of the control panel;
this will increase the fan speed to 110% and reduce some system temperatures.
MSI GT683R apply unique Turbo feature, actually the GTX560M already got high performance for a notebook,
enable Turbo and use Afterburner software to adjust the frequency, its great help on 3D gaming performance.

DDR3 performance tests
DDR3 1330.6 CL9 9-9-24 1T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 15235 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 17017 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy - 16038MB/s

DRAM bandwidth is an advantage on Sandy Bridge platform, its around 20% higher than last generation Core I platform, and 2x faster than Core 2 Duo platform.
Because of 4DIMM of DDR3 slot, once used with 16GB, its really good enough to use for recent years.

Temperature (Room temp. around 25℃)
System idle 42~45℃

CPU full speed 85~88℃
Intel Burn Test v2.4,Stress Level Maximum

The idle mode temperature is same as other notebooks with i5-2410M, this is good.
Full loading temperature close to 90℃, the fan is not too noise, and not high frequency noise as well.
GT683R designed with bigger size thermal module and fan, when used for 4 Core 8 Treat Core i7 and high power GTX560M, this kind of temperature is acceptable.

Enable Cooler Boost to boost fan speed.
Idle mode 42~43℃

CPU full loading 80~82℃
Intel Burn Test v2.4,Stress Level Maximum

If we let fan runs with 110% speed, the fan will become louder than auto control.
Idle mode could reduce 1~2℃ and full loading mode could reduce 5~6℃, its really good effect when on full loading usage.
This is also a good feature with value to reduce system temperature, users could try this if needed.

Power watts tests
Get into OS only and not running any program. 28W

CPU full loading 91W
Intel Burn Test v2.4,Stress Level Maximum

CPU and GPU all full loading 158W
OCCT Power Supply tests

Above 3 power watts benchmark data runs with AC adaptor mode, CPU/GPU could runs with full speed at full loading.
The power consumption of idle mode is close to normal notebooks, Core i7 full speed is also acceptable.
If used CPU/GPU with full loading, its much higher than normal Core i5/GT540M notebooks platform.
But if we compare with PC desktop, compare the power consumption and performance ratio, 158W is really great.

Battery life test
9Cell batteries, runs BatteryEaterPro
Full speed 1:11:15

Idle mode 3:54:30

Consider 9Cell battery supports this high performance notebook; its good on both idle and full loading battery life.
If full speed could use over 2 hours will be better, but for high level gaming notebooks this is closer to mission impossible, especially it comes under 3.5kg.
Use GT683R to make HD video playback, it could used around 3 hours; its enough for normally carry out usages.
Consider on bigger size and higher performance notebook products, the battery life already better than old models, 32nm CPU is good on power saving, and MSI ECO engine is working fine.

THX user interface

This will make sound stage brighter, but middle frequency will reduce a little, recommend using for video playback.

Below is my sound experience, this is more subjective, compare with most notebooks built in speakers.

When turn on the maxima volume, the sound is really loud enough that you dont have to worry about this point.
High frequency Will not present over frequency sound, sound detail is really good.
Middle frequency Crystal sound effect, better than double A brand notebooks with sound enhancement models.
The sound detail is closer to same level notebooks from TOSHIBA.
Low frequency: The 2.1 channel design with a subwoofer, low frequency is really good as a notebook; you could feel the sound power, not to strong and very clear.
The sound quality of GT683R is really good, its suitable for high quality video and gaming,
good on sound detail and crystal surround sound stage, its a type of multimedia speaker design.
The middle frequency is already better than most notebooks, is MSI could enhance this part, it will become great.

Summarized on MSI GT683R
1.Suitable size and weight of 15.6 gaming notebook, hardware performance closer to gaming PC.
2.Dual SATA3 port and 4DIMM slot design, make this notebook have good space to increase system performance and expansion space.
3.Rich IO ports, besides D-Sub and 2x USB2.0, HDMI, 2x USB3.0 and eSATA ports to use.
4.Designed with gamer style and 5 part of orange LED light, big size gaming keyboard, Turbo, Cooler Boost to increase GPU and fan performance.
5.Special 2.1 channel speakers design with Sound by Dynaudio, its really helpful on high level sound quality.
6.Built in 1920x1080 Full HD LCD, its good for gaming and video playback.

1.The shield around touch pad will increase the quality if comes with matted and non glare design.
2.Used non glare panel will be better for gamers.
3.The price is a bit higher than normal notebooks.

Performance Ratio ★★★★★★★★★★
Material Ratio ★★★★★★★★★☆
Specification Ratio ★★★★★★★★★★
ID Design Ratio ★★★★★★★★★☆
Cost/Value Ratio ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
(Above Ratio of stars was based on HDD 500GBx2 RAID 0, DDR3 4GBx4 and Blu-Ray Combo)
The main design of MSI Gaming Series notebooks is 15.6, 16 and 17.3 size.
Different size comes with different ID style design, the GT683R comes with newer gamer style ID, made some special design on 3D shield and LED lights,
that make the notebooks ID looks with better quality with style and similar as race car shape.
This is the main improvement from MSI to make their Gaming Series more gamer oriented design.

The 2.1 speakers system is excellent, and could present better surround sound stage with THX technology, its really good for gaming and movies.
Keyboard designed with independent number keys, also marked the WASD keys for smoother FPS gaming experience.
LED lights also have different lighting style, the lights could set to follow the tempo and right/left sound volume.

Look on the spec., it built with Core i7 CPU and nVIDIA GTX560M graphics, for storage systems used dual SATA3 with HDD RAID 0 features,
these are all definitely high performance combinations and could fulfill most heavy loading usages.
The overall of GT683R presents high class design; its indeed a good notebook of the gaming series.
If it could add in some overclock features in BIOS such as Alianware notebooks, and enhance the ID design with better shield material, it will become better.

MSI GT683R also have many different specification combinations in different regions, this review was based on my on hand version of the specifications.
At last I apply the color celebration file by Spider tool, it fits for all GT680/GT683 series notebooks.
