Reviews for the MSI GS70 2PE-421UK

80% MSI GS70 Stealth
Source: Techreview Source English
The new MSI GS70 Stealth is designed to be a slim and modern gaming laptop that isn't clunky like some systems from Alienware. It has a clean-looking black brushed-metal exterior with a MSI logo and shield emblem on the lid. The first thing you notice when you pick it up is that it's quite light for the size. It weighs 5.8-pounds, which isn't light by most laptop standards, but the clean and thin design gives it that feel. It measures 16.5 x 11.3 x 0.9-inches, which is extremely thin for a gaming desktop replacement laptop.

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.  


4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 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.
