Reviews for the MSI GE70-0ND-055UK

60% MSI GE70
Source: Hexus English
MSI's attempt to rise to the challenge has resulted in a package that shows promise in certain areas while falling short in others. The combination of a third-generation Intel Core i7 processor and up-to-date GeForce GTX 660M graphics provide enough power for a mobile gaming experience, but NVIDIA's mid-range GPU will struggle with full-HD games at high-quality image settings, so a compromise has to be met.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.1 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
