MSI GF65 Thin 10UE Laptop Review: GeForce RTX 3060 on a Budget

Cheap and lightweight. We test one of the most affordable gaming laptops you can find with GeForce RTX 3060 graphics to see what cut corners, if any, owners may have to contend with. Is MSI hiding anything under the cheap price?

The MSI GF65 is one of the least expensive 15.6-inch gaming laptop laptops you can buy with GeForce RTX 3060 graphics. Our review configuration comes with the 10th gen Core i7-10750H, aforementioned RTX 30 GPU, 32 GB of RAM, and 1 TB Samsung SSD for about $1650 USD from CUKUSA. However, lesser RAM, storage and Core i5 options are available for much lower prices starting at $999.

Externally, the GF65 10UE carries the same chassis design as the 2020 GF65 9SD and so many of our existing comments still apply. We recommend checking out our review on the 2020 version to learn more about the physical features of the laptop.

The MSI GF series competes with other budget gaming laptops like the Lenovo Legion 5, Dell G5, Acer Nitro 5, or the Asus TUF series.

Case

Surfaces feel thin and they warp more readily when compared to MSI's higher-end models from the GE or GT series. The GF65 doesn't feel as luxurious as a result which is to be expected from an entry-level gaming laptop. The competing Asus TUF models, which are slightly heavier, feel sturdier.

Connectivity

Port options remain identical except for one notable change: the HDMI 1.4 port on last year's GF65 9SD has been updated to HDMI 2.0 for full 4K60 FPS external monitor support. The USB-C ports continue to be incompatible with external monitors, however.

Maintenance

Servicing requires only a Philips screwdriver for relatively easy upgrades. Owners should be careful when removing the bottom panel as the audio jack can get stuck along the edge.

Internals remain unchanged from the older GF65 9SD

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box beyond the usual AC adapter and paperwork. The standard one-year limited warranty applies while any components installed by CUKUSA, like RAM or storage, will have three-year coverage instead.

Display

The GF65 10UE uses a different AU Optronics panel from the older GF65 9SD (AUO B156HAN08.4 vs. AUO B156HAN13.0) with the main difference between them being refresh rate (144 Hz vs. 120 Hz). Other than that, the panels are almost identical including their average black-white response times and below-average gamut. Contrast is quite high at over 1000:1, but the limited color reproduction diminishes this advantage.

Subjectively, the display is buttery smooth for gaming and general usage — just be prepared for a little ghosting and don't expect colors to pop.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers just 56 percent and 36 percent of sRGB and AdobeRGB, respectively, to be indicative of a budget panel despite the high 144 Hz native refresh rate. Most mid-range or better Ultrabooks or gaming laptops cover at least 90 percent of sRGB for deeper colors. The limited colors here aren't an issue when gaming, but graphics editors will want to avoid using this panel.

X-Rite colorimeter measurements show an overly warm color temperature out of the box which our own calibration is able to fix for more accurate grayscale levels. Color accuracy, however, remains below average especially when at higher saturation levels due to the narrow color space mentioned above. Blue in particular is represented more inaccurately than every other tested color by a wide margin.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
31.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18.4 ms rise
↘ 13.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 80 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
36.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.2 ms rise
↘ 17.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 36 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.1 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14825 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is below average as the display isn't any brighter or dimmer than the outgoing GF65 9SD. Maximum brightness is a bit lower than most gaming laptops where 300 nits or greater is more common.

Performance

MSI has updated the display (120 Hz to 144 Hz) and RAM (2666 MHz to 3200 MHz) from the older GF65 9SD. The CPU and GPU have been updated from Coffee Lake-H to Comet Lake-H and Nvidia Turing to Ampere, respectively.

Lesser Core i5-10200H and i5-10500H SKUs are also available, but the 144 Hz IPS display and GeForce RTX 3060 remain fixed on all configurations as of this writing.

We had set our system to the MSI Extreme Performance mode prior to running any performance benchmarks below.

Processor

Multi-thread CPU performance is slower than the average Core i7-10750H in our database by about 10 to 15 percent. In fact, the older Core i7-9750H in the Maingear Vector 15 is able to consistently outperform our MSI by a few percentage points in multi-threaded loads. For higher performance, users should enable Cooler Boost mode (or maximum fan mode) as detailed in our Stress Test section below.

Storage Devices

Our unit comes with a 1 TB Samsung PM981 NVMe SSD but other sellers will likely have something different depending on the desired capacity and price. We're able to both reach and maintain the theoretical 3200 MB/s sequential read speed of the drive as shown by our DiskSpd loop test below.

GPU Performance

Of the four laptops we've tested thus far with the mobile GeForce RTX 3060, our MSI GF65 is the slowest of the bunch by about 15 percent according to 3DMark benchmarks. Raw performance is still above the mobile RTX 2060 albeit only by about 15 percent. Owners of GeForce RTX 2070 laptops will still enjoy slightly faster graphics performance than this RTX 3060 laptop.
