Overall, the MSI GE62 Apache is a very good entry-level gaming laptop, with class-leading 3D performance numbers and gamer-friendly features, like the Steelseries keyboard with multi-colored backlighting. However, the Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro remains our Editors' Choice. It's $100 less expensive, comes with a speedy SSD, and delivers an hour more battery life.

There's a lot to like with the MSI GE62 2QE Apache. It's surprisingly compact for such a high-power laptop - in fact it's barely any bigger or heavier than your typical £300, 15.6in budget machine so it can certainly double as a standard laptop while acting as a desktop replacement gaming system when you get home.

Most gamers turn to desktops because they are inexpensive to buy or build, can be upgraded with ease, and offer solid performance. The alternative is gaming-focused desktop replacement notebooks that, while heavy, are infinitely more portable than a desktop PC. A feature-rich and potent gaming notebook that also packs serious punch when it comes to value for money.

In short, the MSI GE62 Apache is a well-rounded gaming laptop with solid real-world performance and a wallet-friendly price. This notebook falls short in terms of battery life and gets a little too hot for prolonged “laptop” use, but any other complaints are pretty minor. We highly recommend the MSI 6E62 Q2E Apache if you’re looking for a 15-inch laptop that can play just about any game and you need to spend less than $1,500.

The MSI GE62 2QD Apache does enough to be well worth considering as a slimmer and lighter alternative to your more typical bulky 15in gaming laptop. Plus, for its price of just over £1000 it offers competitive performance. However, the keyboard layout and a few other minor irritations means it doesn’t quite win us over completely.

Source: Expert Reviews English
The MSI GE62 2QE Apache is a well-specified gaming laptop with a great screen, although at its original £1100+ price, we weren't convinced it was good value. However, now that the cost of this machine has fallen by nearly £200, it's fantastic. It's easily comparable to the likes of the Scan 3XS Graphite LG157, which is only very slightly cheaper than the specification on test here. With its excellent screen and top-notch graphics performance, the MSI GE62 2QE Apache gets a Best Buy award.

MSI GE62 2QD-029UK

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.

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.

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.

The GE62 6QD Apache Pro is by no means a perfect machine, but it has a lot of modern hardware and thus a lot of potential. Some of the annoyances, such as the overabundance of annoying software and the mechanical noises, could be easy for the company to fix. The biggest problem is in fact one users can take care of themselves: adding an SSD. However, none of these problems should have come up in the first place.

MSI GE62VR-6RF16H11 Apache Pro

Touted as the “ultimate PC gaming platform”, the MSI GE62VR Apache Pro laptop claims to be able to shatter desktop performance cliche.  It is also one of the earliest gaming machines powered by the latest GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics with 40 percent performance boost. On first sight, the GE62VR looks intimidating in its largely black and red aluminium chassis. Its dimensions measure at 383 x 260 x 27~29 mm and it weighs 2.4kg (with battery). It looks less bulky than its competitors but still is bulky enough to make portability an issue. The keyboard is lit with an array of red, green and blue backlight which allows gamers illumination even under dim conditions and their much needed gaming keys customization. The silver lining printed keys are capable of being subject to long-term wear and tear according to MSI. They are also very comfortable for typing on and produces good key travel distance.

The GE62VR-6RF16H11 Apache Pro boasts a 15.6-inch screen which displays incredible, full HD visuals. With its True Color Technology, colors display with increased contrast and greater image. Sound quality is equally superb as it is enhanced with Nahimic audio software which offers high definition sound technology, something that is common in all MSI gaming laptops. One key feature of the GE62VR is its readiness for VR Technology which provides gamers with a smooth, powerful mobile platform for ultimate VR games, something that gamers are describing as the future of computer gaming. Powered by the latest 6th Generation Intel  Core i7 Processor, the capacity of the GE62VR to play demanding games is undisputed. It is capable of running on 16GB RAM memory with 1TB HDD and 256GB SSD storage for fast and mass storage. It is also equipped with the Killer Gaming Lan technology which reduces gaming lags.

Temperature control is always a challenge on gaming machines, yet MSI managed to excel in this aspect with the GE62VR. The exclusive SHIFT technology boosts performance under measured noise and temperature. The Apache Pro is also packed with connectivity options which include a wide array of USB 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1 ports, HDMI port, DisplayPort, and a card reader. Via the HDMI port and Mini DisplayPort 1.2, its Matrix Display can support up to 2 external displays simultaneously. This enables users to multitask even while gaming. Also mounted on board is an optical drive as well as a webcam. In terms of battery life, the GE62VR falls behind machines of similar build but is common for a gaming laptop. Networking is supported by both high speed WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home. In all, this machine is a strong contender against any of its less well-built rivals.  It will be a suitable laptop for gaming enthusiasts and people who perform graphic intense task such as video editing and animation.

MSI GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro Review: A Pascal-Powered Gaming Laptop
Source: Hot Hardware English
The rad thing about the Apache Pro is that you're getting awesome gaming performance at a price point that used to be reserved for only serviceable gaming performance. Nobody ever went out and bought a $1,599 gaming laptop because it had precisely the GPU they truly craved, instead compromising some level of graphics performance for a cheaper price tag. Typically if you wanted a laptop with a GTX 980M inside, you had to spend several hundred dollars more.

MSI GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro Review
Source: Vortez English
Although the external design has had very few alterations compared to the previous generation of notebooks from MSI, the overall theme and aesthetics still oozes finesse – bringing that touch of elegance and adding in one or two gamer oriented trimmings. The keyboard in particular stands out as a particular highlight with GE62VR; boasting the best LED backlighting we’ve ever seen. The SteelSeries partnership continues for this specific feature and the corresponding SteelSeries ENGINE 3 software works very well in offering all the per-key customisation you’d want including tweaking commands, lighting and macros. For those wanting to tone things down, there is the option to disable all lighting too.

80% MSI GE62 7RE Apache Pro laptop review: Well-managed thermals make for a decent mid-ranger
Source: Tech2 English
This MSI device is in a very competitive spot in the market. A number of gaming devices from HP, Lenovo, Dell (Alienware) and Asus are slugging it out in this space. These devices offer similar specifications at a similar price, and picking between them isn’t as easy as glancing at a spec sheet.

The MSI GE62 7RE Apache Pro is a great choice for those looking for an affordable gaming laptop that can perform as good as the desktop GTX 1050 Ti GPU. The laptop performs pretty well for 1080p gaming. The included M.2 SSD is definitely fast, although we hope that MSI offers a bigger SSD option.

MSI GE62VR 7RF-417ES

When it comes to gaming notebooks, no other company stands out more than MSI with their bleeding edge innovation. The MSI GE62VR has a design as classic as can be for a gaming notebook, with the whole system weighing 2.4 kg, minus the power brick. In terms of chassis and build, the GE62VR looks sleek with its industrial looking design, thanks to its brushed aluminum construction, which gives it a much more solid aesthetic. While the main body of the notebook is quite solid, the same cannot be said for the lid: Despite its aluminum construction, there seems to be a slight flex to it, which means putting heavy objects on top of it is a no-go. For hardware, the GE62VR boasts an Intel 7th-generation quadcore Core i7-7700HQ processor with a dedicated desktop-grade Nvidia GTX1060 graphics card. It can also be equipped with up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, but by default the GE62VR comes with 16GB of memory. Due to the VR notation one might have guessed that this notebook is also VR certified and ready. Like most of MSI’s gaming notebook lineup, the GE62VR includes several exclusive technologies, such as SHIFT, which allows the system to boost beyond its normal limits while reducing noise and temperature dynamically without the user's intervention.

As most notebooks of its class these days are seeing rapid adoption of the USB-3.1 Type-C standard, which allows for high transfer rates between devices, the GE62VR is equipped with one such port. Moving on to the visual display aspects of the device, MSI is offering a 4K 100% Adobe-RGB certified IPS panel, which should be an added benefit to content creation users on the go. The default specification comes with a standard FHD panel, so should the user wish to opt for 4K, it is highly recommended since the hardware is more than beefy enough to leverage the added pixel count. Continuing with the input aspects of the GE62VR, there is the touchpad and keyboard: The touchpad is mediocre at best because of its rough texture affecting some usability due to friction. The keyboard, however, remains one of MSI's and Steelseries' best collaboration with good travel distance and feedback, even more so when it comes to typewriting, which this keyboard excels at. Another additional feature of the keyboard is its RGB backlight, which helps with low light situations and is nice for those who like to show off. The only downside of the keyboard backlight is that the colours can only be set per zone and not per key. Along with most MSI notebooks, the GE62VR also comes with additional user-experience-boosting software, such as the Nahimic audio enhancing software for sound, and a 1 year free premium subscription license for the Xsplit Gamecaster broadcasting software for gamers who are game content streamers. Unfortunately, due to this being a high-performance notebook, bad battery life is unavoidable; nonetheless at 3 hours on medium load, it is on par with most notebooks of this class. The final verdict is: Whether you are a content creator or a gamer on the go, MSI’s line of notebooks is sure to impress.

MSI GE62VR 7RF Camo Squad Review: Heavy Hitter
Source: Unbox English
The MSI GE62VR 7RF is a pretty solid performing notebook that’s quite capable of running most AAA games today. It’s a little expensive though, at Php 109,995, even with the freebies that MSI throws in when you buy one. Personally we’d rather skip the freebies and get the regular notebook if MSI Philippines offered that option.

The MSI GE62VR 7RF is equipped with a 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of VRAM, 16GB of DDR4 2400 RAM, 256GB of SSD storage (M.2 SSD) and 1TB of HDD storage. Those specs are more than enough to run modern games, or at the very least the copy of Ghost Recon: Wildlands that’s included with the purchase. We’ll have to see how it fares in the other games that we have in our library.

MSI GE62VR 7RE Apache Pro Review
Source: Vortez English
The GE62 7RE is priced at £1199 GBP in the UK and at the moment we have no US pricing. With this entire package, we get 2 years’ warranty and we get decent performance from the range of features this laptop provides. However, given some of the criticisms we believe the 7RE should sit closer to the £1000 mark to more accurately deliver a better value package, especially since we have an “entry-level point GPU”.

65% MSI GE62 7RD Apache Laptop Review
Source: Techspot English
It's often possible to purchase basic GTX 1060 laptops around the $1,200 mark as well. Newegg occasionally has sales on gaming laptops, which can bring the price of systems like the aforementioned GT62VR down to under $1,300. There are some GTX 1060 models floating around that sacrifice the SSD and some RAM to hit $1,200, and this could be worth it: the GTX 1060 is 70 to 90 percent faster, which leads to a much better gaming experience even without an SSD.

70% MSI GE62 7RD Apache gaming laptop review
Source: Good Gear Guide English
At $1,999 this is one of the “cheapest” hardcore gaming laptops that we’ve seen. It’s a bit weird that it’s actually not too great for gaming, but there’s certainly a market among the competitive players who focus on older games. If you want a slightly larger screen (and more weight) there’s the Apache Pro for $200 more, but this is only very slightly faster and the improvements aren’t really significant.

MSI GE62VR 7RF-298NL Apache Pro

MSI's latest addition to their GE62 series is the MSI GE62VR 7RF-298NL Apache Pro, and this beast of a machine has all the power needed to run an intensive VR game seamlessly. MSI's latest addition to their gaming laptop line comes equipped with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ Kaby Lake CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 laptop graphics card, a massive 16 GB of RAM and storage consists of a 256 GB SSD and a 1 TB HDD. It is worth noting that this laptop's GTX 1060 comes with its own dedicated 3 GB DDR5 VRAM and can perform at the level of a desktop GPU. The combination of all these high-spec hardware will allow gamers to run any demanding and power-hungry modern AAA and VR games in ultra-settings at 60 FPS smoothly. As for the connectivity ports, the MSI GE62VR 7RF-298NL Apache Pro comes with one USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one USB 2.0 Type-A ports, dual-band wifi and Bluetooth 4.2 combo, one SD card reader, one HDMI port, one mini DisplayPort, one mic-in, and one SPDIF headphone out jack. With MSI’s innovative Matrix Display and the HDMI and mini DisplayPort, users will be able to connect two monitors to the laptop simultaneously. Matrix Display also supports 4K output with resolutions up to 3,840 x 2,160. This gorgeous machine comes in a classy metallic chassis with a brushed metal design that gives it a premium look. Gaming laptops are never tiny, and the MSI GE62VR 7RF-298NL Apache Pro is no different. With a 15.6" display and 29 mm in height, this beast weighs about 2.4 kilogram, which is still very reasonable for a gaming laptop. The laptop also comes with MSI's exclusive “SHIFT” technology that maximizes its performance while keeping noise and temperature to the minimum. Users can also optimize the usage of the laptop by changing between profiles or modes at whim. Also, to keep the laptop running cool, there are dedicated heat pipes for both the CPU and the GPU. Another thing that any VR gamers will appreciate about this laptop is the Nahimic audio enhancer that was bundled in with the computer. This audio software will be able to boost the audio and voice performance of the laptop for an immersive virtual 7.1 audio surround. The VR video and 3D audio together are the perfect combo for gamers to enjoy an immersive virtual world. It was easy to see the MSI GE62VR 7RF-298NL Apache Pro was designed and built with gamers' interest in mind. With its powerful specifications, and not to mention the SteelSeries keyboard and the Killer E2500 Gaming LAN for consistent ping, gamers would be very hard-pressed to find a better gaming laptop at this price range.

Comment

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).


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

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M: Lower high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell chip GM204 and GM206 (newer 2016 version with higher clock rates). Part of the GeForce GTX 900M series.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.» 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.
