Reviews for the MSI GE62-6QF16H21
Source: Gaming Laptops Junky
My conclusion is the same for the last months – wait for the new models with the new GPUs. Otherwise, the MSI GE62 6QF I5 version offers quite a performance for such a price, it uses no PWM mechanism, minimal throttling while gaming, even with games like Ashes of Singularity and Star Citizen, very nice and colorful keyboard and the laptop is quite under light load (even on “high performance” mode).

The MSI Apache Pro models are relatively slim, yet they're powerhouse performers with all the bells and whistles laptops used to have--like Ethernet, a DVD drive and ample room for heatsinks and ventilation. In the $1,100 to $1,300 range well configured, they offer a lot of bang for the buck. Styling is decent, the laptops have aluminum lids and we love the easily serviceable and upgradable internals.

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.
