Reviews for the MSI GE65 9SF-006

80% MSI's GE65 Raider Review: A little thick, but a lot fast
Source: PC World English
Overall, we’d have to say there’s a lot to like in the GE65. The main highlight is the 8-core Core i9-9880H, which offers a significant performance increase over previous chips. Against a 6-core 8th-gen, you’re looking at about a 57-percent increase in performance.

At a Glance: MSI GE65 Raider Review
Source: Extreme Tech English
According to PCMag, while performing these tests the CPU and GPU maintained average temperatures of 83C and 80C, respectively. At the same time, the GPU reportedly maintained an average core clock of 1,630MHz, which is significantly higher than the RTX 2070’s stock clock speed of 1,440MHz. This indicates it has been factory overclocked by MSI to improve performance. Clearly the thermal solution also performed exceptionally well during these tests, as thermal throttling was not a noticeable issue.

Thanks to a Core i9 processor and full-fat GeForce RTX graphics, MSI's GE65 Raider is one of the fastest 15.6-inch gaming notebooks you can buy—and it packs a panel with a wildly high refresh rate. Just be prepared to put up with some loud fans.
