Reviews for the MSI GT70 2PE-1051FR Dominator Pro

MSI GT70 2PE Dominator Pro Gaming Notebook Review: Appropriately named
Source: PC Perspective English
If you can come to grips with that, and as long as you don’t mind those other quibbles we mentioned, there’s really nothing stopping the MSI GT70 2PE from being your next favorite gaming companion. It retains all of the strengths of the GT60 model we reviewed last year, but with even more power and a truly ridiculous SSD RAID storage configuration. In short, it’s one of the fastest mobile gaming solutions you’re going to find—and it’s just $2,699.

Model:

Gamers are sure to be delighted with the release of the MSI GT70 2PE-1051FR Dominator Pro. It utilizes the best graphics chip for laptops out in the market today, the Nvidia GTX 880M. And if that is not enough, with 8 GB RAM paired and Intel Core i7 processor with a turbo clock of up to 3.7 GHz, the MSI Dominator Pro is the definition of a graphical monster. It goes without saying that this mammoth will play all high-end games with the highest setting with ease.

Having great graphics alone will not be enough if the screen is not on par. Fortunately, the MSI Dominator Pro has a 17.3 inch display, which is wide enough to enjoy games to its fullest. Thanks to its resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, it can display videos and pictures in the best FullHD quality. To top it off, the laptop also comes with a Blu-ray drive. Like other gaming laptops, the main issue is battery life and unfortunately the MSI Dominator Pro is no exception. Housing such powerful hardware under the hood, it is more feasible to keep the laptop connected to a power supply. So, it is not the best choice for a portable device.

For a gaming laptop, bulkiness and short battery life are to be expected. With such high-end graphics, the MSI Dominator Pro will, without a shadow of a doubt, give you the best gaming experience.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M: 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.  


4800MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.7 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.

3.9 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.
