Reviews for the MSI GS40 6QE-019RU Phantom
Source: Gaming Laptops Junky
Well, the MSI GS40 6QE is a very nice compact gaming laptop. It does most of what you’d except : very good gaming performance, very good 1080p IPS display, reasonable temperatures even under highest load, and it’s compact and lightweight. Keyboard is very good in my experience, at least for most people. The 16GB DDR4 RAM and 128GB NVMe SSD makes it even better and result in a very good experience overall.

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.
