Comment

Model: MSI in itself has been an exceptional brand when it comes to catering to whatever the gaming community needs. MSI is one of the very few companies of whom possesses the noble privilege of having a decorated title synonymous to the likes of Razer and Alienware (now under the supervision of Dell), which has been much loved not just from the existing gamer’s community, but as well as aspiring fans all across the world. Needless to say, with a tremendous reputation intact, the only way forward for MSI is up, and that encroaching goal starts to manifest in the form of one of their latest laptop, which is otherwise known as the MSI GL63 8SD-270XES.

The MSI GL63 8SD-270XES is considered to be relatively grand in its own way. For instance, this statement is signified through the sheer screen size of this particular laptop model alone. The MSI GL63 8SD-270XES is said to measure up to 15.6 inch when it comes to the display, which also happen to carry a 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution. The basis of a 1,920 x 1,080 pixel screen resolution is considered to be the standard for gaming laptops in order for in-game graphics to be displayed at the most optimal of standards. Touching on the basis of standards pertaining to in-game graphics, the MSI GL63 8SD-270XES is well-equipped for the task in order to deliver the quality and competency in terms of the generation of visually appealing graphics for users to personally experience. This is due to the fact that the MSI GL63 8SD-270XES comes with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB GDDR6 graphics card. This graphics card is one of the relatively powerful internal units. It is capable of utilizing the award-winning Turing ray tracing architecture in order to create realistic graphics based on the principle of reflecting environmental light onto the assets within a launched game.

In terms of design, it is somewhat a relief that the MSI GL63 8SD-270XES laptop model is retaining the MSI’s brand signature bold red accent imposed on the backlights of the keys on the keyboard alongside the lines and pattern engraved on the chassis of the MSI GL63 8SD-270XES model. This is a clear and evident distinction, which is regarded as a form of identity in order for users to identify whichever laptop models are designed for gaming or for other purposes. Though it may seem that the design of the MSI GL63 8SD-270XES may come off as a generic cookie-cutter aesthetic, one should not overlook the very fact that this simple yet stylish design will always have a spot for avid games far and wide.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
