The newest generation GT640’s image processing performance has increased by 40% over previous models. With the Intel® Core™ i7 processor’s built in Intel® Hyper-threading technology, the CPU is able to process even more data, giving the quad core processor the efficiency of an 8-core processor—a huge upgrade in performance.

Flexible Performance settings; maximum battery efficiency

The GT640 comes with MSI’s exclusive ECO Engine, a smart power-saving solution that can be accessed via a dedicated ECO shortcut button on the control panel. With the push of a finger you can activate the ECO engine and customize the notebook’s power settings to suit specific uses. Control your computer’s power consumption by using Document, Gaming, Movie, Presentation, and Turbo Battery modes to maximize efficiency.

With the Intel® Core™ i7 processor’s Turbo Boost technology, the GT640 is a smarter notebook. Through instant calculation of a program’s operating requirements, it automatically regulates power supply so when a gamer is in the heat of competition and needs full power, Turbo Boost will maximize performance accordingly.

This flexible distribution of system resources allows for high processing efficiency and extended battery endurance.
