Model: Recently MSI has rolled out -pun intended- a World of Tanks licensed notebook in the form of the MSI GP62M 7RDX. If you notice that this notebook is just a reskinned MSI GP62M 7RDX Leopard, you are most likely right. While the specification may not differ from the vanilla version of the same notebook model, it is worth mentioning again. The MSI GP62M 7RDX has a Core i7-7700HQ processor, 8 GB of RAM and 1 TB of HDD storage. It is a bit jarring that MSI has labeled this model the 1276 GB when in fact this mere model number name might be mistaken as total storage included. Because this is a World of Tanks license MSI notebook fans of the game will be delighted to know that MSI has also bundled 60 days’ worth of premium account credit, 2000 gold credits, access to the in-game IS-2 tank and then some. While MSI has aluminium constructed gaming notebooks, the MSI GP62M 7RDX is mainly made out of plastic, which might disappoint some users as they are already spending quite a sum on the notebook. The top lid is made of an aluminium sheet, which might be sufficient in protecting the LCD panel. However, this can be negligible since the notebook is relatively thick enough to be solid and rigid under normal stress and use. The included LCD panel is of the IPS variant with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 Pixels. This is about standard on notebooks of this size. Even if MSI would offer a 4K option it would be advisable not to choose it, as the notebook is only equipped with a GeForce GTX 1050 graphic and this can severely deteriorate your gaming experience. 4K resolution might be a litte too taxing for systems equipped with a graphics cards weaker than a 1060.

The MSI GP62M 7RDX has many interfaces, namely 1 USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.0,1 USB type C port, 1 HDMI port, 1 DisplayPort and your usual audio jacks and card reader. One can only wonder why MSI decided to include USB 2.0 when USB 3+ has become the norm. As with most MSI notebooks the keyboard generally remains quite solid with excellent key travel distance of up to 2 mm and no feeling of mushiness, in terms of actuation force the keys are on the moderate side at 61 g. While this is a 15-inch notebook, it is actually nice to see that MSI has actually made a well-spaced keyboard without messing up the keyboard layout. The keyboard is RGB backlit with 3 levels of brightness, which is useful for night owl gamers. There is the classic 2 button touchpad, which can be a godsend, since most manufacturers have shifted to an integrated touch and clickpad for god knows what reason. While gamers would naturally use a mouse over the touchpad while gaming it is usually preferred to have individual click and touch sectors since they provide a much more intuitive feedback to the user. Jumping over to the aural devices of the MSI GP62M 7RDX, it can be said MSI has done a good job with the notebook having a 4 speaker array. As a result, sound feels more punchy, yet not overwhelming in the higher range. This does not mean mids would suffer; quite the opposite actually. However, with the lack of bass there are times that audio can feel a little flat.

While this notebook naturally falls under the multimedia category it is still mainly marketed as a gaming notebook. Hence a record breaking battery life is not to be expected. Nevertheless, the notebook was able to last 4 hours and 4 minutes while watching videos, which is neither bad nor impressive. Overall, the MSI GP62M 7RDX appears fair by all means. If you are a World of Tanks fan who is looking for a decent gaming notebook and some extra World of Tanks freebies, this might be an excellent choice. Otherwise, the going with its vanilla version isn’t bad either.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Notebook): 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. 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.  
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.
