Reviews for the MSI GL62M 7RD-429XES

MSI GL62M 7RDX review – gaming on a budget – features vs. compromises
Source: Laptop Media English
MSI GL62M 7RDX has one of the best price/performance ratios in this category. It utilizes the GTX 1050 fully while keeping temperatures low and noise levels relatively quiet. The CPU in this machine has already been proven in battles, although it can get quite warm, especially compared to the Nitro 5 low-voltage Ryzen 7 2700U processor that barely warms up. However, titles like GTA V and Far Cry Primal won’t be any trouble for this device even at medium-high settings.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.

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.  

7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
