Reviews for the MSI GP62 7RDX Leopard
Source: T Break Archive.org version
While the MSI GP62 7RDX Leopard features the latest Kaby Lake processor and a desktop class mid-range GPU with 4GB GDDR5 in a stylish metal chassis, I was quite disappointed by the performance of the GTX 1050 for some of the latest game titles while playing at medium-to-high settings. This means that you will need to sacrifice a lot of game detail and tune down the presets to low. We wish that the machine came with the GTX 1050 Ti instead of the GTX 1050 GPU. That being said, older game titles which aren’t taxing can easily cross the 60fps without lowering the settings.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile: 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.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i7-7700HQ: 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.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
