Reviews for the MSI GF63 8RD-251

MSI GF63 8RD review – looks better than it works
Source: Laptop Media English
Another day, another interesting device is about to leave our office. We are usually impressed with MSI’s work. However, GF63 8RD got us thinking… At first, we loved it – design, feel in the hand, start up, Dragon center. When you add Whiskey Lake and GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q to the soup, it should result in the perfect budget low profile gaming device. You can easily go in a coffee in order to do some work or student stuff, whithout being considered as the next childish show off. It is really fast and responsive and moreover, you can certainly play some games on it.

80% MSI GF63 8RD review: Sleek gaming laptop, but pricey
Source: India Today English
There's a lot of stuff to love about the new GF63 8RD - it's got a sleek look with a smooth brushed metal design on the outside and inside. It's lightweight and easy to carry around so it doubles up as a work laptop when you're nt gaming, it's got a great IPS panel with some spot on colours and an immersive bezel-less display. This mixed some some decent performance makes it a great gaming laptop, if only it were more affordable.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q: More power efficient version of the GTX 1050 Ti with about 10-15% slower than a normal laptop GTX 1050 Ti. 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.  
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++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
