87% MSI GE75 Raider 8SF (i7-8750H, RTX 2070) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Much like how the Asus ROG GL704 is a major update over the GL703, the MSI GE75 is a major update over the GE73. This $2200 mid-range gaming laptop skips the Max-Q series entirely for full-power GeForce RTX graphics up to the RTX 2080.
MSI GE75 Raider Review
Source: Techspot English
Bottom line, we liked the MSI GE75 and the RTX 2070 used here is the first time we're swinging more towards recommending an Nvidia RTX laptop than not. We like the level of performance offered and the fact you don’t need a big musclebook laptop to get it -- still find it amusing Intel invented the term musclebook...

MSI GE75 Raider 8SF review (RTX 2070), vs. GE75 Raider 8SE (RTX 2060)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
In fewer words though, this a pretty good laptop and one of the very few compact and light 17-inch notebooks with powerful hardware, especially if you’re looking at the RTX 2070 and even the 2080 models. It performs great, given the hardware and its size, and it runs cool, but the build is not as sturdy as with other laptops in its class, and the battery life was also sacrificed in order to include a punchy speaker system. You should be able to accept both if you’re primarily looking for a computer than you’ll use on a desk, while plugged in, but for some, that might defeat the whole purpose behind the compact form-factor and lightweight chassis.

MSI's GE75 Raider slims down and adds performance oomph in this GeForce RTX-based iteration, but this gaming laptop's loud fans and lack of G-Sync reduce its appeal for discerning players.

80% MSI GE75 Raider 8SE review and benchmarks (i7-8750H, RTX 2060, 144 Hz FHD screen)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The MSI GE75 Raider is a significant update of last year's GE73 series, keeping most of the good parts and addressing some of its quirks. The performance, cooling, keyboard, and speakers remain its strongest assets, but this time corroborated with a 144 Hz IPS-level screen and a more compact chassis. However, the GE75 still trails the competition in the build and battery life departments, and still doesn't get a Thunderbolt 3 port, that's why it's hard to accept MSI's decision to price this as the most expensive option in its niche.

MSI GE75 Raider review – the Raider series just got pretty
Source: Laptop Mag English
MSI GE75 Raider is certainly a well-balanced gaming laptop. It does the job exactly as it is supposed to and on top of that doesn’t heat up excessively. We found its keyboard to be one of the best in the class, and the RGB control, offered by SteelSeries is better than ever. Then there are the three dedicated buttons on the right, that offers you instant access to customization and fan boost.

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 RTX 2070 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower.NVIDIA 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.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Laptop): Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.» 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.  

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++). 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++).
