Reviews for the MSI GE75 Raider 9SG-417
But the overall GE75 package is solid. The performance is top-notch. The design is pleasing and functional. The keyboard customization is wonderful. MSI tends to charge a premium for their machines, and that trend does continue here, but thanks to the wide range of options, the GE75 Raider fills a pretty wide range of budgets, from $1799 at the bottom end to $3399 at the top, and even the bottom end of the range still comes with a respectable 512 GB of NVMe storage, a Core i7-9750H, and 16 GB of DDR4. At the top, the pricing is high, but MSI continues to showcase their excellent design and execution, with the GE75 Raider being a worthy contender.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower.

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.
9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
