MSI GL75 Leopard in review: Successful gaming laptop with a 144 Hz display

Well-rounded gaming machine. With the GL75 Leopard, MSI has a powerful 17.3-inch gaming laptop in its range that brings all modern games smoothly onto the responsive Full HD display (144 Hz, IPS). The rest of the equipment is also right: 16 GB of memory (dual-channel mode), an NVMe SSD, and a 1 TB HDD.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch, Andrea Grüblinger (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain),

The MSI GL75 Leopard belongs to the gaming laptops in the 17.3-inch format. It's powered by a Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor and a GeForce RTX 2070 graphics core. The device is not unknown to us since it's the (largely) identical successor to the GL75 9SEK and the identical sibling model of the GP75 Leopard 9SD, respectively. Competitors include devices like the Acer Nitro 5 AN517-52, the Schenker XMG Neo 17, and the Lenovo Legion Y740-17IRHg.

As the GL75 10SFR is identical in construction to the GP75 9SD and the GL75 9SEK, we won't go any further into the case, connectivity, input devices, and speakers. The corresponding information can be found in the review articles of the GP75 9SD and the GL75 9SEK.

Display - Responsive, bright, high-contrast

The 17.3-inch display of the GL75 has a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The brightness (308.7 cd/m²) and contrast (1,549:1) are within the target. In addition, the 144 Hz panel delivers good response times. Unfortunately, the display flickers at a frequency of 208 Hz at brightness levels of 30% and below. Due to the low frequency, sensitive users could experience headaches and/or eye problems.

* ... smaller is better

Out of the box, the screen already shows a good color reproduction. With a DeltaE 2000 color deviation of just under 2, the target (DeltaE less than 3) is met. The display doesn't suffer from a blue tint. Calibration doesn't lead to improvements in terms of color reproduction. Furthermore, the AdobeRGB color space (61%) is not fully mapped. The situation looks better with the sRGB color space (96%).

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
9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
12 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.8 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 detected 208 Hz ≤ 30 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 208 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 30 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 208 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17699 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The laptop is equipped with a viewing-angle stable IPS panel. Consequently, the screen can be read from any position. Outdoors, reading the display is possible when the sun is not too bright.

Performance - The GL75 offers enough power for all application areas

MSI has a 17.3-inch gaming laptop in its range with the GL75 Leopard 10SFR-221. It brings every modern game smoothly onto the screen and also cuts a fine figure in all other application areas. Our test device costs just under 1,800 Euros (~$2,120). Other configuration variants are available.

Test conditions

The preinstalled Dragon Center offers a variety of performance profiles to choose from that have an impact on noise development and performance. We performed all tests with the "Balanced" performance profile. Some benchmarks were also carried out under the "Extreme Performance" profile, and we point this out at the appropriate places.

Processor

MSI equips the GL75 with a Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor (Comet Lake). The CPU operates at a base speed of 2.6 GHz. The clock rate can be increased to range between 4.3 GHz (six cores) and 5 GHz (one core) via Turbo. Moreover, Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported.

The processor briefly works through the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test at 3.4 to 4.2 GHz. The clock speed then drops to 3.3 to 3.9 GHz. The single-thread test is run at 4.2 to 4.6 GHz. On battery power, the speeds are 1.6 to 1.9 GHz (multithread) and 3.2 to 4.6 GHz (single-thread), respectively.

We verify if the CPU Turbo is also consistently used when plugged in by running the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test in a continuous loop for at least 30 minutes. The results drop slightly from the first to the second run and then remain at a constant level. Turbo is used.

Slightly higher results are achieved if the "Extreme Performance" profile is selected within the Dragon Center software.

Graphics card

The GeForce RTX 2070 graphics core supports DirectX 12 and operates at a base speed of 1,260 MHz. When boosted, an increase up to 1,455 MHz is possible. However, higher speeds can also be achieved if the GPU doesn't reach a specified temperature and/or energy threshold. As a result, we register a maximum of 1,900 MHz, which can only be maintained for a short time, though. The GPU processes our The Witcher 3 test at an average speed of 1,631 MHz. Furthermore, the GPU can access fast GDDR6 graphics memory (8,192 MB).

The results in the 3DMark benchmarks are at a normal level for the graphics core installed here. The UHD Graphics 630 GPU that's integrated into the processor is active, and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching solution.

The "Extreme Performance" profile, which can be selected within the Dragon Center software, has no influence on the graphics performance. The 3DMark results are similar.

Gaming performance

The built-in CPU-GPU combination brings all modern games in Full HD resolution and with maximum quality settings smoothly onto the matte screen. Resolutions beyond Full HD are also possible when an appropriate monitor is connected. However, the quality controls shouldn't be adjusted too high in that case.

In order to verify whether the frame rates remain largely constant even over a prolonged period of time, we let the game The Witcher 3 run for about 60 minutes at Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings. The character embodied by the player is not moved during this whole period. A drop in frame rates wasn't found.
