Reviews for the MSI GT780DXR

MSI GT780DXR 17.3″ Laptop review
Source: Kitguru English
The GT780DXR is certainly a very capable gaming laptop combining excellent processor performance with a first rate gaming experience thanks to the Nvidia GTX570 discrete solution, shipping with a generous 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory. Even though we received a very early prototype, the build quality didn’t cause concerns, and the understated, yet sturdy chassis design appealed to me. It looks as if it could withstand some long term LAN gaming abuse, and will find a home among demanding mobile gamers.

MSI's GT780DXR isn't the most powerful or the most attractive desktop replacement we've tested, but it's an all-around solid machine. And the keyboard is so pretty.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570M: High-end mobile GPU based on a stripped down GF114 chip.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.  


2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
