Back in the days in order to boost performance of personal computers when it was critically needed, personal computers were equipped with a “Turbo” button, which allowed to boost system’s performance by clocking microprocessor to its nominal speed. Over the years the button disappeared, but today it was returned.

MicroStar International (MSI), a leading maker of computer motherboards that have been trying to enter various new markets for many years, announced on Wednesday its new laptop that can overclock its central processing unit by 20% at a push of “Turbo” button. The novelty is designed specifically for entertainment and gaming enthusiasts, who are looking for extreme power even when they are not at home.

The new laptop features 16:10 wide-screen display, Intel Core 2 Duo processor, DDR2 memory and “newest independent” graphics card. Currently MSI aims to ship GX600 notebook with Nvidia GeForce Go 8600-series graphics adapter, but in future other variations are also possible. It is unknown whether the graphics board can also be overclocked by 20% at a push of the “Turbo” button.

When the new G-series laptop from MSI was designed, special attention was paid to gamers: W, A, S and D keys are purposely made to allow gamers to locate these important keys in any environment.

Pricing of MSI GX600 laptop remains unclear.
