80.8% MSI GF75 Thin 8RD (i7-8750H, GTX 1050Ti Max-Q) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
"Make it thin and light." This is probably what the engineers at MSI heard when being given the task of creating the MSI GF75 8RD. And the result is: thin and light. But how does the flyweight gamer fare under full load? After all, the MSI GF75 is not made for office work. It is directed at the gaming community. Can the thin MSI keep up with the high demands of gaming or might this design have taken its toll on the laptop's abilities?

78% Thin is in: MSI GF75 Thin 9SC Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
While the GTX 1650 is an excellent upgrade over the GTX 1050 or GTX 1050 Ti, we can't say the same about the Core i7-9750H over the Core i7-8750H. Be prepared to spend $1200 for a budget gaming laptop with the performance level of an older GTX 1060.

 

MSI GF75 Thin 9SC-039XES

The MSI GF75 Thin 9SC-039XES is a lightweight and decent performance gaming laptop. It claims to be 16 % thinner, 8 % smaller and 15 % lighter than the average 17-inch gaming laptop in the market. This portable 17-inch gaming laptop is only 22~23.1 mm thin and 2.2 kg light, which is a figure typically seen on a conventional 15.6-inch laptop instead of a 17-inch laptop. For design, the laptop features a metallic top and keyboard cover paired with a futuristic design that's packed for battle. Besides that, it has a drop-down hinge design with ergonomic gaming experience. For the display, users can get a clear view of the game at any angle with brilliant clarity and contrast with the IPS level display and true-to-life visual. The four-sided thin-bezel design and 88 % screen-to-body ratio allow users to enjoy more immersive gameplay in an even more compact chassis. The hardware specification of the laptop includes an Intel Core i7-9750H processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics adapter, 16 GB RAM and a 512 GB SSD for storage. The 8th generation processor powers up with 40 % performance gain over the previous generation with the extra cores. GeForce Max-Q is an innovative technology that squeezes all the performance of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs into the world's fastest, quietest slim laptops. These hardware specification allows users to play most of the game titles at high detail. As a gaming laptop, cooling is also one of the highlights and essential features. The MSI GF75 features a fine-tuned thermal design to be noticeably quieter and cooler under load, easily blending into any environment. It has two fans, four heat pipes and four exhausts. Developed under an exclusive partnership with BlueStacks, the MSI APP Player brings seamless gaming experience between mobile games and PC platform and leverages customized features as specific keyboard lighting and better graphics with multi-task works. As for battery life, the MSI GF75 Thin is all juiced up for unplugged productivity and entertainment. It claims to have 7+ hours of battery life according to the MobileMark 2014 standard. Audio has also been given more emphasis with Nahimic 3 and Audio Boost, which enhance in-game 3D surround sound and make finite control over music, movies, and conference calls. They also enhance audio detail by 30 % with the built-in AMP (Audio Power Amplifier) and golden audio jack. As a conclusion, the MSI GF75 Thin 9SC-039XES is definitely a lightweight and high-performance laptop. Light weight, big screen, high performing processor and price tag are looking promising for this model. However, gamers will need to carry the power adapter for a full day out.

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 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.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 (Laptop): Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the GTX 1650 but with reduced clock speeds and power consumption. Uses the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) but without Raytracing or Tensor cores.» 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++).
