10th gen Core i5 Comet Lake-H Debut: MSI GF75 Thin 10SCXR Laptop Review

New Core i5 name, same Core i5 performance. The 10th gen Core i5-10300H is so similar to both the 9th gen Core i5-9300H and 8th gen Core i5-8300H that it's only worth upgrading if you own a laptop with the Core i5-7300HQ/i7-7700HQ or older. As a budget gaming laptop, the GF75 10SCXR is essentially identical to last year's cheaper GF75 9SC with no performance surprises despite the next-gen CPU.

MSI has been slowly rolling out its lineup of refreshed G Series laptops sporting Intel's 10th gen Comet Lake-H CPUs all month long. The GS75 with the Core i9-10980HK, for example, is shipping later this month. The budget GF75 Thin 10SCXR is on the other end of the spectrum with its Core i5-10300H CPU designed to replace last year's GF75 Thin 9SC and its Core i5-9300H.

The configuration for this review comes equipped with the aforementioned 10th gen Core i5 CPU, 1080p 120 Hz display, 512 GB PCIe SSD, and just 8 GB of single-channel RAM for a retail price of just under $800 USD. It's one of the least expensive laptops available with a Comet Lake-H CPU which makes it a perfect starting point for comparisons against other budget laptops like the HP Pavilion 17 Gaming, Acer Aspire Nitro 5, and the Lenovo IdeaPad L340.

Case

The chassis remains identical to last year's GF75 9SC and so our existing comments apply here. The most notable features of the design are the narrow bezels and low weight to replace the much older and thicker GF72 series.

Connectivity

Port options are nearly identical to the Acer Aspire Nitro 5 AN517 and Asus ROG Strix G GL731GU. The major differences are the separated 3.5 mm ports on the MSI for headphones and mic and the lack of DisplayPort over USB. All ports are easy to reach at the cost of being tightly packed together. More expensive 17.3-inch MSI laptops like the GS75 or GT75 come with Thunderbolt 3 compatibility.

Communication

Wireless is provided by the removable Intel AX201 for 802.11ax connectivity and Bluetooth 5. We experienced no connectivity issues when paired with our Netgear RAX200 Wi-Fi 6 router, but transfer rates could have been steadier as shown by our graph below.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by 12 Philips screws and removing it is relatively easy. The problem is that there is an anti-tamper sticker which might impact your warranty or return options. Thus, there is some risk involved even if you just want to upgrade your RAM or storage.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no included extras in the box outside of the AC adapter and paperwork. The standard one-year limited warranty applies.

Input Devices

Keyboard

MSI keyboards are some of our favorite on any gaming laptop due to how consistent they are between models. The red backlit keyboard here is comfortable to type on with both quieter clatter and firmer feedback than on an Asus Zephyrus or HP Omen. If you have ever typed on a GF72, GF65, or any other GP or GL series laptop from MSI, then you will have a good idea of how the GF75 will feel like.

Touchpad

The clickpad (~10.5 x 6.6 cm) is slightly smaller than the one on the GS75 (10.5 x 7 cm). Though reliable for cursor control at all speeds and very responsive because of the 120 Hz display, its integrated mouse keys are too spongy and difficult to press. A lot of force is required to click the surface which can become tiring if clicking or dragging and dropping frequently.

Display

Our GF75 Thin 10SCXR uses the same AU Optronics B173HAN04.7 panel as found on the GL75 9SEK which is another one of MSI's budget gaming laptops. Though the silky-smooth 120 Hz refresh rate is clearly the highlight of the IPS panel, most everything else about it is average at best. The limited colors, average brightness, average contrast ratio, and average response times pale in comparison to the 144 Hz panels on pricier laptops like the MSI GS75 or the Asus Zephyrus series. Of course, these alternatives can retail for over twice the price of the GF75. Other budget gaming laptops like the Acer Aspire Nitro 5 AN517 or Lenovo IdeaPad L340-17IRH have higher contrast ratios and deeper colors albeit with a refresh rate of "only" 60 Hz. It's a trade-off users will have to make at this price range.

Display quality is decent if not middle-of-the-road. It's slightly grainy as expected on matte panels while colors are more muted than what most Ultrabooks or other gaming laptops have to offer.

* ... smaller is better

Color space is narrow at just 58 percent and 37 percent of sRGB and AdobeRGB, respectively, in spite of the fast 120 Hz refresh rate. Higher-end gaming laptops are able to offer both fast refresh rates and near 100 percent sRGB coverage simultaneously. As a result, the panel will be sufficient for gaming but it should be avoided for professional graphics work.

Further measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter reveal a decently calibrated display out of the box. Calibrating the panel ourselves will noticeably improve average grayscale DeltaE from 4 to 0.7 while upping the color temperature closer to 6500K, but color accuracy remains poor due to the narrow color space mentioned above. The color blue in particular is represented more inaccurately than any other tested color.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
26.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15.6 ms rise
↘ 10.8 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 53 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
34 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 27 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9589 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is poor as the display is not bright enough to overcome so much ambient light. For a budget 17.3-inch gaming laptop, however, this is not uncommon. Viewing angles are otherwise excellent with only slight changes to contrast and colors if viewing from obtuse angles.

Performance

The 10th gen Comet Lake-H Core i5-10300H is designed to replace the 9th gen Coffee Lake-H Core i5-9300H. Unlike some of the newer and pricier 10th gen Core i7 parts, however, the budget Core i5-10300H comes with the same four cores and eight threads as its direct predecessor. Even the 14 nm fabrication process, cache sizes, integrated UHD Graphics 630, and TDP levels are identical gen-to-gen. Raw performance gains are therefore expected to be minimal.

The most comparable AMD options would be the 2nd gen Zen+ quad-core Ryzen 5 3550H or Ryzen 7 3750H launched early last year. AMD's newest 3rd gen Renoir Ryzen 5 4600H should easily outperform our Intel Core i5-10300H in multi-threaded loads due to its hexa-core setup.

Our configuration comes with just 8 GB of single-channel DDR4-2666 RAM that is fortunately upgradeable to 32 GB.

Processor

As detailed here, the Core i5-10300H offers only marginally faster performance than the last generation Core i5-9300H and even the older Core i5-8300H. The GF63 Thin with the Core i5-9300H, for example, is only 5 to 9 percent slower than our GL75 in multi-threaded workloads and the delta becomes even narrower when looking at single-threaded loads. Only users upgrading from a Core i7-7700HQ or i5-7300HQ or older gaming laptop will see any significant gains.

Running CineBench R15 Multi-Thread in a loop reveals that the MSI system is unable to maintain maximum Turbo Boost indefinitely as shown by the graph below. The initial score of 840 points drops to 770 points over time to represent a performance dip of 8 percent.

See our dedicated page on the Core i5-10300H for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks are consistently higher than the MSI GF63 powered by the last-gen Core i5-9300H with slightly slower GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics. The margins are still quite narrow, however, so users shouldn't expect significant speed gains if jumping from 9th gen Intel to 10th gen Intel.

Storage Devices

Our unit comes with a Western Digital SN530 SDBPNPZ-512G NVMe M.2 drive with sequential read and write rates of about 1000 MB/s and 1700 MB/s, respectively, according to AS SSD. It's not guaranteed that all SKUs will come with WD drives, however, as MSI and resellers may source from multiple manufacturers. Users can add an internal secondary 2.5-inch 2.5-inch SATA III drive to expand storage space.

GPU Performance

The GTX 1650 GPU holds no surprises here. 3DMark results are where we expect them to be relative to the average GTX 1650 in our database in spite of the new CPU and limited RAM involved. Performance is much closer to the desktop GTX 1650 whereas the mobile RTX 2060 can be 20 to 25 percent slower than the desktop RTX 2060

See our dedicated page on the GeForce GTX 1650 mobile for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.
