85.2% MSI GE63VR Raider-075 (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1070, Full HD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Daring to be imperfect. What, a TN panel in an $1800 gaming notebook? Yes, MSI has done it again and prioritized 120-Hz and quick response times. If you can work with this, you will probably be happy to overlook the few problems this otherwise well-made notebook has. Only one of MSI's decisions is rather questionable.
MSI GE63VR 7RF Raider review – one of the best GTX 1070 notebooks out there
Source: Laptop Media English
Going back to reality, we really enjoyed the keyboard with its RGB backlight, and the touchpad, which is far more adequate than some of the laptops in this category. The good cooling solution and the ease of use of the Dragon Center utility, combined with the super useful fan boost button just add to the greatness of this device. If you’re ready to give battery life away for the immersive gaming experience provided by the 120 Hz screen, we can truly recommend the MSI GE63VR 7RF to you.

70% MSI GE63VR Raider Review: Makes all the right noises
Source: Gadget Show English
There are two things which work in the favour of MSI's latest offering: performance and the fact that it doesn't heat up. The gameplay is efficient, the display is smooth and MSI deserves kudos for delivering all this at a relatively acceptable price point. While Rs 1,49,999 isn't exactly cheap but when it comes to gaming laptops it is competitive. As mentioned earlier, you've alternatives from HP and Asus with similar or better specifications but they do cost more. If you're looking for a quiet and efficient performer, the GE63VR Raider from MSI will be a good option to go for. However, the battery life could prove to be a deterrent to many.

MSI GE63VR 7RF-039 Raider

Racing stripes do not make everything go faster, but they can make the system look cooler. The 17-inch MSI GE73VR 7RF Raider Pro has a fresh design that stands out. It also packs some powerful speakers, and, thanks to a GTX 1070 GPU with 8 GB of VRAM, it delivers smooth frame rates for intensive games at high settings. The lid is faux-brushed aluminum, but instead of being totally flat, it has a small hump where the silver MSI logo and red dragon shield are more pronounced. On each side of the hump are red, angular patterns. When a user opens the laptop, it is largely the same. The 15.6-inch, 1080p display is surrounded by a thick bezel, and the rainbow-backlit sRGB keyboard with a number pad rests on an aluminum deck. At 2,86 kg (6.3 pounds) and 41,66 x 28,45 x 2,79 cm (16.4 x 11.2 x 1.1 inch), the Raider is significantly lighter than competing 17-inch gaming notebooks. The 15.6-inch, 1080p display on the Raider is extremely colorful. The Raider's panel covers an incredible 185 percent of the sRGB color gamut, far more colorful than the desktop-replacement average of 127 percent. Unfortunately, it is dimmer than all of those machines. The Raider's screen measured an average 276.2 nits of brightness, falling below the 289-nit average. For hardware, the laptop relies on an Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 16 GB of DDR4 RAM memory and is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. As for storage, it has a 256 GB SSD and 1 TB hard disk provides additional storage space for your own game collection. It is no surprise that the Raider can handle everyday tasks with ease. As with most gaming notebooks, the keyboard has been made in cooperation with SteelSeries again. The Chiclet keys have a good mid-stroke pressure point and are therefore not only suitable for gambling but also for typing longer passages of text. MSI packed the Raider with gaming software, but there is also a bit of bloatware. The Dragon Center, as usual, is a standout, with its myriad of system monitoring, customization and performance options. Additionally, the Killer Control Center lets a user decide which applications get priority access to their network, and MSI True Color offers pre-calibrated color options for gaming, designing, office work and night computer use. The TriDef Smartcam lets user replace the background, and XSplit Gamecaster allows a user to stream to multiple sites at once. The sides of the Raider are lined with ports for peripherals and extra storage. The left side has an Ethernet jack, an HDMI output, a mini Display Port, a USB 3.0 port, a USB Type-C port, a headphone jack and a microphone jack. The right side sports an SD card reader and a pair of USB 3.0 ports. Unfortunately, there is no Thunderbolt 3 port. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

74% MSI GE63VR 7RF Raider (GTX 1070) Review
Source: Tech PowerUP English
In general, the MSI GE63VR is not a bad laptop. Its issues are correctable—a change to dual channel memory will let the GeForce GTX 1070 operate at its maximum potential, which is the biggest reason for this review score. With these specifications, you expect a certain level of performance which is just not being delivered. The other issue is bad battery life, but considering its size and specifications, let's face facts: battery life was never going to be all that amazing anyway. In the future, MSI could easily improve this unit by going back to a 2x 8 GB memory configuration and upping the battery capacity.

The MSI GE63VR Raider-213 is a healthy refresh of MSI’s GE-series lineup. The sportier look, per-key RGB backlit keyboard, and improved gaming performance all elevated its standing in the market, especially at the $1,649 price point of the model that we reviewed. The competing Alienware 15 R3 and Acer Predator 15 don’t yet offer per-key RGB keyboards, nor are they as thin and light as the GE63VR.

MSI GE63 8RE-222DE

The GE63 Raider RGB is the stylish racing inspired machine among the gaming notebooks. It scores in games and multimedia applications when highest performance is in demand. It is a very complete gaming notebook, with RGB LED backlighting on keyboard and lid, good dissipation system and power in abundance. The slim aluminum housing on the laptop stands for stylish appearance and high mobility. The design is similar to the other GE63 laptops with identical measurements (419 x 285 x 28.5 mm) and similar weight (2.8 kilos). It is a relatively thin laptop with powerful hardware and an integrated battery of 6 cells (51 Wh) with the autonomy that user would expect in such a model. Internally, there is a 15.6-inch matte screen with 1080p resolution at 120 Hz, 3 ms, and Wide View. The nimble 120 Hz / 3 ms true color screen ensures absolutely fluid performance in the game and allows an unrestrained response. The Full HD resolution is to ensure that gamers get the best frame rate required for gaming. Similar to many laptops in the market, there are also a webcam and integrated microphone on the screen. For the first time, the SteelSeries gaming keyboard offers programmable single button lighting on a notebook. One of the external points to point out of this particular model is that this laptop has customizable Mystic Light RGB LED lighting bands on the cover. Not all gaming laptops have something like that, and it is worth mentioning. The MSI GE63 Raider RGB has an Intel Core i7 8750H processor, a Coffee Lake portable version with a base frequency of 2.2 GHz, 6 cores and 12 threads in total. It comes with nothing less than 16 GB of DDR4 RAM at 2,400 MHz, and graphically has the invaluable support of an NVIDIA GTX 1060, with its 6GB of GDDR5 video memory. The storage would be borne by an M.2 unit with a SATA 6 Gbps 128 GB interface as a system unit for a lightning-fast system and program starts, accompanied by a 1 TB hard drive for mass storage. Furthermore, the laptop features the Dynaudio sound system that supports the game and movie experience with powerful sound. Besides that, the Killer Gaming Network Card with Killer Shield optimizes data rates and reduces latency in online combat. Regarding connectivity, there are a lot of things on either side of the laptop, such as card reader, USB ports (3.1, and even a C type), audio input and output, Gigabit Ethernet, external power port, and air vents for the integrated cooling system. There are also HDMI and mini DisplayPort, to connect external screens. The MSI GE63 8RE-222DE is a serious gaming machine. Unlike many gaming laptops these days, this model doesn’t take the effort to blend itself in and make it look like it’s a professional laptop with gaming capabilities. It is a straightforward, beastly looking machine. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Meanwhile, the styling and build quality is okay but the addition of RGB certainly isn’t a deal maker. In fact, the use of keys with an open side that lets more of the backlighting shine out is particularly distracting. An altogether more subtle approach would get our vote – but then again, you may love RGB lighting, in which case the MSI GE63 Raider RGB 8RE will almost certainly appeal.

MSI GE63 Raider RGB 8RF-039XES

The MSI GE63 Raider RGB 8RF-039XES is a gaming laptop that is inspired by exotic sports cars and the RGB master race. The GE63/73 Raider RGB are given a new identity by the new lighting top cover design with Mystic Light and Gaming Mode optimization, which offers the fanciest illumination. Although the housing is identical to the old GE63VR, in this new version the two lines on the lid have a configurable RGB backlight now. A user can change its color, as well as set gradient effects and even generate animations synchronized or not with the laptop keyboard, which also has RGB backlight configurable on each key. Its Intel Core i7-8750H microprocessor at 2.2 GHz allows users to perform all kinds of advanced functions such as photo retouching, video editing and CAD design at the most demanding levels. This microprocessor can increase its speed to a maximum of 4.1 GHz with TurboBoost technology. It has 16 GB of DDR4 RAM at 2,400 MHz, a 256 GB SSD with the M.2 interface and a 1 TB hard drive at 7,200 RPM. With 8GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM, the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 mounted by the 8RE versions allows users an excellent gaming experience with high details in practically all current titles. As for the display, this LCD panel features Full-HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and LED backlight. Its very short response time of 3 ms is a great advantage for gamers according to MSI. It also has a matte finish and a good level of brightness, which is ideal for outdoor usage, an excellent level of contrast, and high color fidelity. The MSI True Color technology, partnered with Portrait Displays, Inc. spawned a new height for the display technology. Each panel will undergo thorough examinations and an extensive factory calibration process so that each color is presented with the utmost precision in details, guaranteeing exceptional color fidelity of close to 100 % sRGB. This laptop is also equipped with the latest MSI Cooler Boost 5 which excels as a dual thermal module, adopting dual Whirlwind Blade fans with 7 heat pipes and well-endowed 4 air vents in the revolutionary cooling module. It ends up intensively and efficiently driving exhaust heat out of the system, raising the cooling technology to the highest level of its kind. It is specially designed for generating greater performance and lower temperature. Almost all the ports of this model are concentrated on the left side of the laptop. In addition to the Kensington lock, users will find an RJ45 (Ethernet) connector, an HDMI output, a mini DisplayPort output, a USB 3.0 type A port, a USB 3.1 (Gen2) type C port, and headphone and microphone connectors here, while in the front of the right side users will find two additional USB-A type ports and the SD / MMC card reader.

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).


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

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.» 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.  

7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
