Reviews for the MSI GS60-2PEWi716SR21

80% MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro review: Ultrabook-thin with a fantastic screen
Source: PC Advisor English
The MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro has enough power to handle current games, and it’s got the screen quality to match – and all while costing less than the Gigabyte P35W v2, which has a poorer screen but a tad more gaming power. The storage, keyboard and speakers all impress, but this slimline gaming laptop struggles for longevity and has poor thermal performance. It’s thin and impressive, but be aware about the MSI’s limitations before spending any cash.

100% MSI GS60 Ghost Pro—a 15.6"
Source: Digital Versus English
The MSI GS60 Ghost Pro is a little gem, combining power and finesse. And given the configuration, it doesn't heat up excessively, either. What we've got here is a dedicated gaming laptop that can run any game and do it well. It boasts an excellent screen and is small and light enough that you can take it with you anywhere. It's just a shame the audio isn't up to the same standard.

80% MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K
Source: Computer Shopper English
Overall, the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K-095 is an outstanding, if slightly pricey, gaming rig. The laptop scorched through our graphics and gaming benchmarks, and delivered seamless performance on Battlefield 4 with the graphics cranked all the way up. Moreover, the 3K display looks stunning—even if there are few opportunities beyond gaming to use it—and the speakers deliver pitch-perfect audio.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M: High-end graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

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.  


4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
