A Paradigm of Cutting-Edge Performance
Exclusive LED Performance Illumination Technology
This exclusive, dazzling LED performance illumination technology increases the sensation of instant immersion when listening to music, watching video, or while wrapped up in the gaming world, thanks to changes in the GX680's cool LED lights.
Audio Synchronize Mode
When listening to music, watching a video or when knee-deep in the exciting world of gaming, simply press the MSI LED light performance control hotkey and the GT680 enters Audio Synchronize Mode. Then, the GT680's LED lights on both sides of the notebook and at the front of the keyboard will light up all at once. The light performance will follow different changes in sound, allowing you to unconsciously follow the rhythm of the dynamic lighting and envelop yourself in an atmosphere of sound and light that will leave you breathless!
Intelligent Simulation of Sound Source
The exclusive LED performance illumination mode can also intelligently simulate sound. When the left-side speaker emits sound, the LEDs on the left side will independently illuminate, and the same on the right side. For example, when an image of a bullet passes from left to right, the noise of the bullet will also pass from left to right through the speakers, and the LED lights then light up in conjunction with the direction of the sound moving from left to right, giving images and sound a three dimensional effect and making you feel as if you are in the midst of authentic and dynamic reverberations!
The Lifelike GX680 Breathes!
When in sleep or standby modes, you can select "breathe" (a pulsating LED light frequency) control function to give the GX680 different ways to express inactive modes. Just like an actual person resting, the GX680 is lifelike.
Be Your Own Light Expert!
You can control on/off commands with the LED performance illumination hotkey, and also open the selection manual to choose detailed light performance modes, allowing you to personalize your GX680!
