The MSI GE72 2QD Apache carries a price tag of 6990 AED, which seems quite a hefty price for a mid-range gaming laptop. With the laptop’s large form-factor, fast processor, and the fast cooling fans, the absence of a faster GPU is clearly noticed; the MSI could have packed the machine with at least a GTX 970M GPU. We wish that MSI could have packed the laptop with a Blue-Ray drive too.

MSI GE72-2QEi716H21BW

Being another gaming laptop from MSI, one can expect a powerful and excellent looking device. The MSI GE72-2QEi716H21BW certainly fits the bill with its metallic chassis, color scheme and performance. The laptop is engineered to be lightweight yet durable as it made form Mg-Li instead of the more traditional aluminum. The entire device features a brushed metal design and there are streaks of red highlighting the dark grey color. Another common feature of most MSI gaming series is the SteelSeries keyboard with multi-color LED backlight. Under the hood, there are a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16 GB DDR3L 1600 MHz RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX965M GPU with 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM and up to 768 GB Super RAID 2 + 1 TB HDD combo for storage. The MSI GE72-2QEi716H21BW is a beast of a gaming rig yet remains relatively portable at just 2.7 kg. Display on the laptop is a gigantic 17 inch FHD anti-glare panel with good colors and clarity. Gaming intensive users will feel right at home especially since the device also comes with good audio quality. Sound is provided by Dynaudio and Nahimic sound technology and is delivered by a 4.1 sound system. Other features include a HD webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, an HDMI port, three USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port and Killer GB LAN. Battery life is impressive with a 6-cell Li-Ion pack powering the device.

The MSI GE72 Apache is a good 17" gaming laptop. It might not be super-powered, but it does offer decent gaming performance, running most titles with good graphic details and frame rates. We particularly liked the matte screen with good contrast and decent colours, as well as the efficient and quiet cooling system.

The MSI has the size and the looks to rival most gaming notebooks, but its £999 price is a double-edged sword. It's cheaper than most high-end portables, but the cut-backs are evident in several departments: the screen, keyboard and build quality aren't as good as the equivalents on the Asus G751JL, which is costs around £100 more than the GE72.

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.

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.

Ready for games with Skylake. Fallout 4, Black Ops 3, Battlefront – autumn brings a lot of challenge for gamers. MSI has refreshed its line-up for the gaming festival and improved the GE72 a lot: Apart of an up-to-date Intel quad-core CPU, the 17-inch fireball got an IPS panel and a USB 3.1 port. However, the price went up quite a bit, too. Is this justified?

The MSI GE72 6QD Apache Pro is a pretty good gaming laptop overall, providing capable performance on a large screen at a reasonable price. It's not a powerhouse like more expensive laptops, but you know you're not buying a top-of-the-line system in this price range. The GE72 would make a much stronger case for itself with a 970M video card, especially given the $800 960M-equipped Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series (7559). Though it will cost you more than $2,000, the MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G-1438 certainly provides much better performance on maximum settings, and so remains our Editors' Choice midrange gaming laptop.

The GE72 6QD Apache Pro is in a rather unique position as a gaming notebook, in the sense that it's one of the few budget-friendly large-screen models on the market. In contrast to the stereotypical 17.3-inch gaming notebook, loaded to the gills with an overkill GPU and CPU and priced accordingly, this configuration of the GE72 gives you the big-screen gaming experience without the $2,000-plus outlay.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 965M 2016 Refresh (N16E-GR) Review | Notebookcheck
Nvidia listened to what customers want and published a faster GTX 965M based on the smaller GM206 chip. Although the number of shaders remained the same, the clock rates and the performance increased.

 

MSI GE72VR-6RF

Considered as the leading gaming laptop manufacturer, MSI is expected to grow significantly in this quarter as reported by the Taiwanese journal DigitTimes. MSI is following the trend of ultra-slim laptops, which aim at convenience and easiness for users when travelling, while preserving powerful performance. The user currently could experience products with great technological specifications as well as incredible design. One of the luxurious super thin powerful laptops that we would mention here is the MSI GE72VR Apache Pro with remarkable upgrades. For example, the technological boundaries have been touched with the Hi-fi audio solutions and attractive RGB lighting as a remark from page ETekNix and the combination of the Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB graphics card created an extreme efficiency in this laptop.

1. Design

Through the curved and sporty appearance featured, the edges of MSI GE72VR Apache Pro are smooth and gentle grooves wing the plain, raised emblem at the enclosure’s top (evaluation of page Gameranx.com). Also from this page, the GE72VR Apache Pro is considered to come with the Steelseries keyboard inside, whose lettering and four sides of the chiclet keys are transparent, allowing for quite a dazzling light show. Moreover, the keyboard of this product can customize up to six lightning effects. “The product’s sublime red and black colour scheme is the perfect match for the core gaming demographic and should appeal to most users considering a high-end gaming laptop”, says ETekNix. In general, as commented from ETekNix, with the simple and clean design, there isn’t much to see other than a couple of stickers.

2. Processor and memory

The GE72VR Apache Pro is powered by an Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad core processor with a clock rate of 3.5 GHz, which based on the Skylake architecture. The four CPU cores with Hyper-Threading clock between 2.6 and 3.5 Ghz and can reach a maximum of 3.3 GHz with 2 cores and 3.1 GHz with 4 cores. Not only that, the integrated HD Graphics 530 can handle the most demanding applications and excessive multi-tasking easily and the power consumption is low. Besides, the manufacturer MSI has equipped this product with 16 GB of DDR4 2133 MHz RAM and the RAM capacity can be upgraded to up to 32 GB.

3. Display

MSI has equippped this laptop with a anti-glare 17.3-inch IPS display with a Full HD resolution in order to make the greatest visual for the users. And “Thanks to the IPS panel, the GE72VR Apache Pro’s 17.3” screen is capable of appropriately rich visuals. Backlight bleed was minimal to non-existent” (remarked by Gameranx). However, the page TechPowerUp says “The 1920 x 1080 display is actually an AH-IPS panel from LG, but it is sadly only a 6-bit panel, though its viewing angles are still good”.

4. Benchmark

The reviewers used PCMark 8 Home to test general computing performance through various tests, which cover web browsing, writing, photo editing, video chat and playback, and casual gaming. According to TechPowerUp, the MSI GE72VR 6RF Apache Pro achieved 3956 points and page EtekNix reports 4027 points, which are respectable scores and somehow the laptop showcases its fantastic performance in a wide range of common tasks including photo editing, web browsing and light gaming (evaluated from both ETekNix and TechPowerUp). For the 3DMark, ETekNix has gone with a conclusion that the power of this laptop is quite close to a high-rated desktop utilising the Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1060. And thanks to the Pascal technology of the new GTX 10 graphis card series, the gaming laptop performance has made a significant improvement.

5. Graphics card and gaming performance

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6 GB of VRAM, which is considered to be a graphics card for high-end laptops, is based on the Pascal architecture and manufactured in 16 nm FinFET at TSMC, the GPU uses the smaller GP106 chip. When compared to the desktop version of GTX 1060, the laptop version offers the same amount of shaders, but slightly lower clock rates, while it is able to offer 40% higher performance than the GTX960M, which was released last year. With the dedicated graphics of Nvidia GTX 1060, the laptop itself did very well in Gameranx’s 1080p benchmark. In addition, it smoothly runs MOBA games. For example, it can reach up tp 122.1 fps in DOTA 2 with ultra setting, in which every detail is configured to its maximum. Benchmarked by page ETekNix, the laptop can reach 82 fps on Very High preset in the game Grand Theft Auto 5, 62.5 fps on Very High preset in game Rise of the Tomb Raider, 54.7 fps on Ultra preset in game Hitman and 56 fps on Ultra preset in game Farcry Primal. However, in the game The Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt as a comment of page Gameranx, this notebook can maintain an average frame rate of 60 fps with High preset, but when in the combat, the display could drop to as low as 40 fps.

6. Battery life

Because of the powerful graphic card and other components, battery life has been a problem in gaming laptops despite the low power consumption processor. However, the GE72VR Apache Pro still performs rather well without special remark. ETekNix says: “The laptop’s battery life is passable and you should be able to achieve around 3 hours of use with the Eco mode enabled. This time would be exact if the user aims to do some basic works, and any video watching or gaming will dramatically reduce the battery life”. In addition, TechPowerUp has made a battery test with gaming, and the result is not impressive. For the game Valley lock at 60 fps limit, sadly the laptop just lasted for 38 minutes and got 56 minutes of use at 30 fps limit. Page Gameranx concluded the battery problem of this notebook: “We do not expect more than an hour of play with most modern games. Performance suffered during battery operation as well”.

7. Connections, network performance

“The laptop’s Killer E2400 networking chip provides exceptional bandwidth numbers and maintains a very small range between the minimum and maximum results. Therefore, the network traffic is very reliable and you’re unlikely to experience any huge fluctuations”, says ETekNix. However, the Wi-Fi performance left the reviewer of ETekNix feeling underwhelmed since the speed just reached a maximum 209 Mbit/s.

8. Noise and temperature

According to an evaluation of Gameranx, the temperatures of the MSI GE72VR Apache Pro remained below or slightly above body temperature. The primary key hovered amidst the low to mid 90s Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, the GTX 1060 idled at 46.0 degrees. And the notebook was basically silent. However, when it was under load, this laptop itself pushed out a lot of hot air. The noise increased significantly, and could be plain heard across a large room (comment from Gameranx). In general, Gameranx said accurately: “This is not a laptop to be playing games in a library”.

9. Audio

Sound is one of the most important specs for users. And following on page Gameranx, there is a remark about the MSI GE72VR Apache Pro’s audio like that “The laptop’s hidden speakers are more than to pump out loud audio. The action and character voices were clear and easily discernible. Thankfully, the built-in headphone AMP and Nahimic 2 audio enhancements and virtual surround sound make for a great solid experience with a pair of cans on your head”. Nevertheless, page TechPowerUp has given a short conclusion that the sound of this laptop will not give you anything remotely close to audiophile quality: “Just don’t expect a miracle of sound that will meet your mind”.

According to TechPowerUp, the GE72VR Apache Pro will not surprise you, yet it is not a disappointment either. It has solid specifications, a decent touchpad, and an above average keyboard. Notwithstanding, the overall performance is quite good. And “if you want an amazing gaming laptop, EXOTIC PC and MSI deserved your attention, but you should be more than happy with just base model of the GE72VR Apache Pro”, said Gameranx. Beside that, ETekNix also has a valuable evaluation: “The MSI GE72VR Apache Pro offers a phenomenal gaming experience in a fairly portable shell. Furthermore, the laptop has a sleek, sophisticated design and looks breathtaking from every conceivable angle. While there are some flaws, the overriding experience is very positive”.

To sum it up, it is obvious that MSI has not manufactured an incredible GE72VR Apache Pro, yet, it still has a lot of outstanding highlights for users to consider it a great laptop. The gorgeous brushed aluminum design is the first thing most users agree is special and could be appealing for the first sight. Then, the RGB keyboard is not only actually comfortable, beautiful and impressive, but also able to satisfy most users including the most awkward customers. Besides, “powerful” is the only word I would like to use when describing the performance of this notebook. The Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad core processor and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB graphics card make performance more powerful and get the user’s experience to a higher level. Quiet operation in idle conditions and the impeccable build quality are also advantages of the GE72VR Apache Pro. On the other hand, there are some flaws, which MSI should improve. For instance, the WiFi speed could be disappointing for some users as the result is not as good as expected and the slightly loud noise might annoy some users. In addition, battery life is acceptable, but it could be better. The main conclusion to be drawn from all analysis above is that the MSI GE72VR Apache Pro is still a perfect choice in case you would like a desktop replacement workhorse, which can do some serious gaming.

MSI GE72VR 6RF Apache Pro GTX 1060 Gaming Laptop Review
Source: eTeknix English
The MSI GE72VR 6RF Apache Pro revolves around an understated design philosophy which manages to have enough exuberant elements to please users who enjoy a more ostentatious approach. In particular, the laptop’s brushed aluminium finish looks very expensive and the surface’s ability to resist fingerprints should allow the system to maintain a pristine appearance. Additionally, the graceful lines and red Apache branding enhances the unit’s aesthetic charm without detracting from the elegant styling. Even though beauty depends on subjective preference, I highly doubt anyone would perceive the laptop’s visual aspect in a critical manner.

It absolutely dominates today's games with ease, and the inclusions of an SSD and an HDD for storage means boot times and load times are good. The i7 6700HQ offers exceptional CPU performance and proves to be more than a match for daily tasks. In fact, it will sit there yawning at you to find it some real work most of the time. The 1920x1080 display is actually an AH-IPS panel from LG, but it is sadly only a 6-bit panel, though its viewing angles are still good, so that's a plus.

Entry-level Gaming. The MSI GE72 revision from 2017 is interesting because of several reasons. First of all, Intel's brand new processor architecture enters the notebook segment with the Core i7-7700HQ. On the other hand, Nvidia's brand new gaming chip GTX 1050 Ti is on board, which ranks in between mid-range and upper class. We checked the gaming capabilities of the 17-inch model.

The MSI GE72 7RE Apache Pro isn’t groundbreaking, but it gets the balance just right in its price league. The GTX1050 Ti has enough power to play 1080p games smoothly, the processor is fast there’s loads of memory, and the storage setup gets a good balance of solid state and mechanical capacity, although there are much faster M.2 SSDs available.

We’ve been impressed with MSI’s gaming laptops as they’ve represented impressive power and good value. For many this Apache Pro will be underpowered as a portable gaming machine, but for others it will be exactly what they’ve been looking for: powerful enough to play competitive (older) games really very well but without the overkill of paying for power that won’t be used.

This makes it tricky to come up with a definitive opinion about the MSI GE72 7RE Apache Pro as it offers decent value for money whilst the performance is held back by the relatively limp graphics. Yes we know that Nvidia has certified GTX 1050 Ti as VR Ready but still we want more.

70% MSI GE72MVR 7RE Apache Pro Review
Source: Toptenreviews English
FOR REGULAR TECHLIFE readers, just looking at the GE72MVR might be enough to evoke a sense of déjà vu, but this isn’t simply because we’ve covered GE72 models in these pages before, but rather, that every aspect of this device — from the stock RGB membrane keyboard to the brushed-black metallic exterior — looks really rather similar to most other MSI gaming laptop we’ve got our hands on over the past couple of years. That means this 17-inch unit is slightly chunky and square, with the occasional bit of more economical flair helping to keep that overall price a bit lower than most of the competition.

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 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series.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 970M:

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

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 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 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.
