84% MSI GP65 Leopard 9SE Laptop Review - The best screen on a mid-tier gaming laptop | Notebookcheck
Despite some drawbacks in build quality and thermal management, the MSI GP65 Leopard is an excellent all-around gaming laptop for $1500. Surprisingly, the machine has one of the most color-accurate screens we have measured in a gaming laptop. The bright display backlight and 144 Hz refresh rate are icing on the cake.

83.2% MSI GP65 10SFK Laptop Review: 10th Gen Intel Core i7 Leaves its Mark | Notebookcheck
MSI has beaten most other OEMs to market with laptops sporting Intel's latest Comet Lake-H processors. After having checked out the Core i5-10300H and Core i9-10980HK, let's see how the Core i7-10750H fits in the lineup.
MSI GP65 Leopard 10SX review – evolution rather than revolution
Source: Laptop Media English Archive.org version
MSI GP65 Leopard 10Sx’s display has a 144Hz IPS panel (LG LP156WFG-SPB3) with a Full HD resolution, reasonably high maximum brightness, and comfortable viewing angles. Additionally, it covers 94% of sRGB and its backlight doesn’t flicker at all. And thankfully, from the gamer’s perspective, the 144Hz refresh rate is paired with a fast pixel reaction time. What was unexpected, though, was with our Gaming and Web design profile applied, the color accuracy is below 2.0, making it good enough for people, who value the accurate color representation. However, our unit had a reasonable nonuniformity of the luminance in the top right corner of the display, making it inappropriate for Web design.

MSI GP65 Leopard Review - Intel 10th Gen
Source: Mobile Tech Review English Archive.org version
Lisa Gade reviews the 2020 MSI GP65 Leopard 15.6” gaming laptop with the Intel 10th gen Core i7-10750H 6-core, 45 watt processor and NVIDIA RTX 2070 graphics. It sells for $1499 at Computer Upgrade King, who supplied our review loaner. The Leopard is also available with an RTX 2060 if your budget is lower and in a 17.3” size as the GP75 if you prefer a bigger screen. This gaming PC offers a lot of performance for the money and its fairly light and portable. A 144Hz IPS matte FHD display is standard. It has an ample selection of ports, including 3 USB-A, USB-C, HDMI, DisplayPort, mic/headphone jacks, Ethernet and a full size SD card slot.
