85% MSI GE62 2QD (Apache) 029UK Review
Source: Kitguru English
It has been a very active year for MSI so far – they have been releasing a steady stream of award winning laptops, including the mighty GT80 Titan which despite the hefty price tag is still sold out in many countries. UK punters will be pleased to hear that GT80 stocks have recently reached Overclockers UK and Scan.

Model: MSI has always produced very practical and highly user friendly laptops. This particular MSI GE62 2QD has a chassis made of brushed metal on the cover panel with several indented textures that add an edgy and sharp macho feel to the machine. The material that makes up the chassis consist of a lightweight aluminium and Mg-Li alloy. Apart from being lightweight, MSI claims that this special material is much stiffer and is the first of its kind to be used as a backbone in any gaming notebook. The laptop is 2.7 cm thick and weighs 2.4 kg, which falls into the relatively portable category for gaming notebooks.

The anti-glare display is 15.6 inches and features a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The hardware here is led by an Intel Core i7 – 4720HQ with a speed of 2.6 GHz which can overclock to 3.6 GHz. It has an 8 GB RAM and another two slots if the user decides to upgrade. The GPU is an integrated Intel HD4600 but for heavier graphic applications, the system automatically switches to the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M. The main storage is a 128 GB SSD with a 1 TB HDD secondary storage. The OS in this machine is a Windows 8.1. The unique construction and material ensure that you get a firm build, yet flexible usability.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series. 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.  
4720HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 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.

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).


85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
