MSI Announces GT725 – World’s First Gaming Notebook to Feature ATi Radeon HD4850 and Deliver Desktop Gaming Performance with a Single GPU

GT725 features 17” 1080P HD LCD Monitor, Blu-ray Player and 9-Cell Battery

CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA – March 02, 2009 – MSI Computer, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, is excited to announce the GT725 Gaming Notebook.  MSI outfitted the GT725 with Intel® Centrino® 2 Processor Technology (Intel® 45nm Penryn P9500), the ATi Radeon HD4850 video card, a Blu-ray player and a 17” 1080P HD LCD to create the ultimate mobile gaming experience.

“GT725 is our flagship gaming notebook,” said Andy Tung, Vice President of Sales, MSI US.  “Graphically speaking it is in a class by itself – the brilliant 1080P HD display and 4GB of DDRII allow the GT725 to run 3-D titles that few other gaming notebooks could handle.”

MSI built the GT725 in its brushed aluminum gaming case with stamped aluminum sheeting for increased protection and durability.  However, despite the rugged case and a standard 9-cell battery, the GT725 weighs just over seven pounds.

MSI’s also included its exclusive Turbo Drive Engine Technology and ECO Engine Management function which are activated by two touch centers located just above the keyboard.
