Reviews for the MSI GP62-2QEi781FD

79% MSI GP62 2QE Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Gaming on a tight budget. The MSI GE series is already the manufacturer's entry-level gaming series. Now, the GP series is taking that extra step to make gaming even more affordable. What exactly has been cut along the way?
60% MSI GP62 Leopard Pro-002
Source: Comp Reviews English
The MSI GP62 Leopard Pro-002 offers an enjoyable gaming experiene for those that are looking for a laptop priced under $1000. The system is lightweight but is actually quite large compared to many other newer systems. This may be the result of its plastic body construction that just doesn't feel as nice as it could.

Comment

Model: The MSI GP62-2QEi781FD also known as the Leopard Pro is a well-built gaming laptop which excels at what it does, which is to be a gaming machine. Its 17.3 inch screen is capable of displaying up to a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD). Its matte surface prevents glares that would obstruct a gamer's focus. The laptop runs on an Intel Core i7 and the buyer can either pick the 5950 or 5700 processor, differing only in clocking speed. Its graphics card is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M, which is the second fastest high-end graphic card in its series.

Thanks to four RAM slots, up two 32 GB DDR3L RAM are available to the CPU, while the GPU either uses 6 GB or 3 GB GDDR5 VRAM. In addition, the laptop features a HDD with up to 1 TB and a built-in optical drive for CD-DVD reading. Audio is driven by Dynaudio and Nahimic sound technology, which is usual for MSI. Furthermore, the laptop comes with a Full HD webcam, which can capture up to 30 fps, and a stunning full-colour customizable backlit SteelSeries keyboard. Finally, having a 9-cell battery, it can run up to 8 hours of continuous usage and is also portable, weighing only at 3.78 kg with battery.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series, based on the Maxwell architecture. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » 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.  
5700HQ: Broadwell-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5600 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.3 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
