Reviews for the MSI GE72-6QF16H21

80% MSI Apache Pro GE62 & GE72
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
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.

80% Skylake powered gaming
Source: Expert Reviews English
There's a lot to like about the GE72 6QF. It's unsurprisingly powerful considering its high specification, there are plenty of connections and some of the gaming-centric extras will be useful. The only real negatives are its design, which is beginning to feel a little basic, and the frugal SSD storage. Compared to some of its rivals, such as the Gigabyte P37W and Asus G751JT, it's otherwise better specified and good value. It will be interesting to see what MSI's competitors can do with their Skylake refreshes but for now, the GE72 sets an impressive yard stick.

100% A Souped-Up 17.3" Gaming Laptop
Source: Digital Versus English
The MSI GE72 Apache Pro is an excellent gaming laptop. It boasts top-of-the-range components and performance for anyone who wants to play video games in Full HD with all settings on max. It has a quality screen, a fantastic cooling system and a very good keyboard. All it's missing to become a flawless laptop is better built-in speakers, although that can be said about just about any laptop.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

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

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

» 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.  

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.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards.

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).


87.25%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
