MSI GT83S, portable gaming with NVIDIA Pascal SLI GPUs.

This MSI GT8S continues with the concept that the company brought with the monstrous GT80, which means a laptop with big size and thickness superior to most models, where MSI takes advantage to integrate a system of two graphic cards working in SLI and even a mechanical keyboard.

The GT83S has a 18.4 inches screen with Full HD resolution, in this matter there are not improvements and it turns out curious that an equipments that could run 4k games easily, keeps limited with 1920 x 1080 resolution pixels. If it was difficult enough to have screens with 17.3” in 4K resolution, to have 18,4” panels, it is very likely that with that resolution it will be even more complicated because of the few models that integrate that diagonal.

MSI GP72 Leopard Pro-002 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop Review

Introduction

One of the latest series to be renewed by Intel are the quad-core processors for laptop computers. The truth is that the need for energy conservation, which is one of the fundamental improvements in the Broadwell cores, was not that important in these series. Still, here are the relays already, which come with similar consumption and performance to that of the previous models, but with some improvements, mainly at the graphics level.

MSI GE62 APACHE-002 Gaming Laptop Review (i7 + Geforce GTX 965M + 8GB ram)

Introduction

I don’t know if this is due to the incorporation of the new graphics chips from Nvidia, but I get the feeling that the prices of the most interesting units from Nvidia, the classic series within its laptops line for gamers, have extended their range significantly. One of the most striking models is the new GE line. These models of 15.6 and 17 inch screens have always been a reference among users that seek a gaming laptop with interesting features at more attractive prices than other classic brands in this market niche.

The MSI GE62 APACHE-002 is one of the first laptops we’ve seen with a graphics chip such as the Geforce GTX 965M from Nvidia. It comes with quality features and some unconventional elements, which is another thing that we have always liked about MSI laptops. At first glance, this laptop has few weaknesses but, unlike the previous versions of this series, we can’t find it below the 1500 Euros range and that, today, it’s a price high enough so our level of demand and quality must also be consistent with that price range.

Technical Specs

While Intel still has to present the Broadwell varieties for laptops, we must continue conforming with Haswell quad-core processors in more powerful gaming laptops. These processors provide four real cores with eight processing threads, thanks to Intel Hyperthreading technology. Actually, Broadwell processors will not mean great performance improvements over these models but, undoubtedly, it will make for better integrated graphics and more controlled consumption.

You’d never believe the power that lies within the MSI GS70 STEALTH PRO-099, a fine 17 inches laptop. And not it offers that, it has much more. This is our analysis.

MSI GS70 STEALTH PRO-099

With a fairly conservative and not very “aggressive” design, this is the ultimate thoroughbred from manufacturer MSI.

Of course it is difficult to imagine before turning on the MSI GS70 PRO-099, all what lies beneath the apparently simple chassis, but we can tell you that there are many surprises (mostly positive) that we have discovered as we were exploring its features.
