Model:

Gaming notebooks are all the rage, and MSI has come out with one particular device to outdo them all. A notebook features a matte 17 inch screen and matrix display options allowing up to four different displays at once for maximum multi-tasking during gameplay. In view of such a large screen, we expect the hardware to be more than capable of handling the amount of data. It comprises a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor in combination with a powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M graphic cards, which can be further accelerated with Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0.

However, due to the hardware, the laptop is bulky with a height of 2.88 cm and a weight of 3.75 kg. So lugging it around will take some effort. Gaming usually means that a lot of heat is produced. The laptop has a single fan with Cooler Boost 2 technology, which is supposed to provide 15% more cooling power than normal fans and works more silently. For online gaming enthusiasts, there is the Killer DoubleShot connectivity feature that combines Ethernet and Wifi for superlative Internet data flow with the ability to handle several data streams at one time. Other gamer centric features include a keyboard by SteelSeries with backlight and speakers by Dynaudio with integrated subwoofers and Audio Boost options to please even the most demanding of players.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M: Upcoming high-end graphics card for laptops and part of the 700M 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.  


4700MQ: 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.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.75 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
