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.

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.  

6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
