85% Review MSI GT70 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Expensive high-end fun. MSI sells a lavishly equipped gaming notebook for almost EUR 2200. A BluRay burner and two mSATA SSDs set up in a RAID array are found under the hood of the GT70. The matte Full HD screen, the illuminated keyboard and the good sound system are also impressive. Reason enough for contenders to panic?

A Fully Tuned Gaming Beast (Updated!) MSI has put together a great gaming machine in the GT70. It's got great specs with a fast Ivy Bridge Core i7 quad-core processor paired with a a fairly high-end NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M GPU and a pair of dual 60GB SSDs in RAID 0 configuration.

The MSI GT70 is a 17-inch gaming notebook that aims to have the speediest of performance available. While keeping the price at a reasonable level, this notebook has a functional keyboard, several USB 3.0 ports, a Blu-ray burner and very good graphics performance. It was hard to find much to complain about with this gamer-focused machine.

While the GT70 wraps itself around the latest technologies, its build impressed us most. The keyboard, trackpad, chassis and speakers all bleed quality, sidestepping so many of the common sins that PC makers commit. This finely crafted icing make its screaming performance that much sweeter.

Gaming is obviously core for the GT70 and, thanks to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670M GPU, it has no worries when it comes to playing the latest titles. MSI has also added its Turbo Drive Engine technology, which means speed boosts for video decoding and encoding, as well as 3D gaming. Intel HD 4000 graphics are also on board for less demanding graphical tasks.

Source: T Break English
It’s clear that the new hardware in the GT70 is a significant improvement over last year’s GT780R models. While the graphics card may remain a generation old, the higher clock speeds most certainly help improve performance. Combine this with the new Ivy Bridge processor and SSDs in RAID, and you have a supremely capable gaming laptop. Heck, even Windows boots in 11 seconds flat! My only major complaint is that MSI have bundles this with so much unnecessary software that out of 111GB of the RAIDed SSDs, you’re only left with 58.8GB free. May as well just reinstall Windows 7

All in all, while the styling might be considered amateurish, and some minor idiosyncrasies exist, MSI has put together an all-around winning package in the MSI GT70. Its 5-hour-plus battery life sets it apart from other high-performance heavyweights.

Gaming notebooks are tricky beasts to evaluate. The best of them balance the speediest current-day performance with the savviest design, but a perfect combination will cost you. The MSI GT70’s fun lighting features and runaway performance, combined with a reasonable price for the hardware, add up to one of the best-value laptops you can buy for serious gaming.

Overall, its few frames under 30 fps in high-quality tests are all that keep the MSI GT70 0NC-011US (Best Deal: $1,999.99 at Amazon) from unseating the more expensive GT783-625US as our under-$3,000 gaming laptop Editors' Choice. If you're willing to give up a little resolution or eye candy (as in Unigine's Heaven 3.0 benchmark, which posted 35.2 fps without anti-aliasing), the GT70 should run the toughest DX11 games, and its cutting-edge CPU and storage system make it an exceptional multimedia and productivity performer.

The MSI GT70 0NE-276US has a lot going for it. It looks like a gaming notebook is supposed to look, and it has all the bells and bling that gamers crave, including multicolored keyboard lighting and robust audio. More important, it performs like you would expect a gaming notebook to perform, thanks to an impressive list of hardware that includes a Core i7 CPU, a stellar Nvidia graphics chip, a pair of solid-state drives, and a boatload of speedy memory.

There is plenty to like about the MSI GT70 0NE-276US, like its inspired design, built-in Blu-ray burner, and beautiful display. At the end of the day, however, performance is the only thing that matters about gaming laptops, and the Alienware M17x R4 outguns the GT70 almost entirely across the board while sporting the same price tag, and it remains the system to beat.

MSI's gaming notebook may have a Dragon pattern on its lid and palm rest, but it's not quite an epic fire-breathing beast. The look of the MSI GT70 Dragon Edition may ultimately decide whether you go for this gaming notebook or not (as well as the price, of course). Under the hood, it has a fast configuration that's very fast for the most part, but we think it could use a higher-end graphics card to match the "premium" vibe that this notebook gives off.

Thanks to MSI's supplying of their chassis to other companies, the GT70 isn't as much of a standout 17-inch gaming system as it could be. The chassis itself offers some nice features including an anti-glare screen and some solid base performance. What MSI does to differentiate itself though is provide a bit more including a Blu-ray drive that most companies ignore.

The MSI GT70 Dragon Edition took almost everything we threw at it, chewed it up and came back for more. It stands as a solid example of a hardware refresh done right, keeping everything that made the original great while still tossing in enough improvements to keep buyers interested. For the most part, its faults include a few things MSI didn't fix from the previous version: a stellar screen that suffers from poor viewing angles and a loud fan.

89% MSI GT70 Dragon Edition Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Tweaktown English
We've gone over the hard numbers of the MSI GT70 and seen some interesting results. But as with everything, it's not all about the hard figures. Over the review, I've found that there's a lot to love about the MSI GT70 Dragon Edition 2. But also, there's some stuff that's not so great. In the end, the GT70 should probably on your list of potentials, though you might stray away from the Dragon Edition unless you want something especially special. At $3,199, the Dragon Edition 2 is a bit overpriced for what you get, but it does offer top-notch performance and a unique dragon motif.

Haswell and the GTX 780M
Source: AnandTech English
Each time I've tested this chassis from MSI I've been a little less enamored with it. Finding a good gaming notebook isn't a trivial thing and there's a lot of room for innovation and improvement in this market segment, but it seems like only Alienware, Razer, and maybe ASUS are actually trying (although Toshiba's next-gen Qosmio is a pretty attractive alternative as well).

MSI GT70 Dragon Edition 2 first play: pictures and hands-on
Source: Pocket Lint English
Gaming laptops don't come meatier than the MSI GT70 - and we mean the physical bulk as well as the behind-the-scenes power - as the 17.3-inch Dragon Edition 2 goes to show. Pocket-lint got our hands-on the 2013 edition of the specialised series ahead of its announcement to try our mettle at Crysis 3 with settings pushed up to the max.

The MSI GT70 2OC Gaming Notebook is very capable, especially when it comes to powering the latest Direct X 11 titles. MSI have paired a powerful 8 thread Intel i7 processor with the Nvidia GTX770M graphics card. This combination delivers smooth, consistent frame rates, even when enabling high image quality settings in demanding titles such as Batman Arkham Origins, and Battlefield 4.

84% MSI GT70 2PE Dominator Pro Review
Source: T Break English
For the price of $2779, the MSI GT70 2PE Dominator Pro doesn’t come cheap. But for its price it comes maxed out with the best possible specifications and features you will need from a gaming notebook. Last year’s GT70 was my favorite gaming notebook and this year’s updated MSI GT70 2PE Dominator Pro still remains one of the best. It’s not just a gaming notebook, it’s a behemoth machine that will make gamers and geeks full with glee when they use it.

Starting with the build quality and design of the GT70 Dominator MSI have delivered a system which scores well on the former and reasonably well on the latter. It certainly feels solid to hold and there were no defects on our sample. The screen is lovely with great viewing angles, the keyboard is solid, one of the best on a laptop, as has been the case with MSI systems for a while and there are nice touches around the system like the gold plated audio connectors or high quality components used.

90% MSI GT70 2PC Dominator review: first gaming laptop with a brand-new GeForce GTX 870M graphics chip
Source: PC Advisor English
The MSI is exceedingly quick, it's got a good screen, and its ergonomics and speakers are all impressive. But it has a huge, flashy design and it lacks any battery longevity. Those are issues that aren't always tackled by the MSI's rivals, though, and the GT70 is faster and cheaper – the top specification versions of both Alienware machines is several hundred pounds higher. That makes the GT70 one of the best value gaming notebooks on the market.

80% A monster gaming laptop with a factory-fresh GPU
Source: Techradar English
The GT70 is the fastest gaming laptop we've ever seen but, despite its speed, it's no pricier than the competition: its £1,299 price is in the same ballpark as the Asus, it's barely more than the slimline GS70, and it's cheaper than the Gigabyte and Toshiba laptops. None of the MSI's rivals address all of the minor issues that affect the GT70, and all of them are slower. If you need a brutish gaming machine and you're more concerned with benchmarks than batteries, then this is the best gaming notebook on the market.

90% MSI GT70 2PC Dominator review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The MSI GT70 is a traditional gaming laptop, so it’s got the usual range of strengths and weaknesses: incredible gaming power, a strong processor, and loud design that’s designed to attract attention. The screen and speakers are good, and the keyboard is also impressive, but the MSI is hampered by its sheer size, loud fan and poor battery life. Neither of the MSI’s rivals solved all of these problems, though, and the GT70 stands tall over the Alienware 14 and Asus G750JX in two key areas: it’s much quicker in games, and it’s better value than both, with the Alienware’s top models proving more expensive and the Asus costing a similar amount for poorer performance.

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.

17.0: 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.
