Reviews for the MSI GS65 8SG-055

85% MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8SG review (2019 model – i7-8750H, RTX 2080 Max-Q)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The 2019 iteration of the GS65 is pretty much a hardware bump of last year’s model, with a few minor refinements on the side. It builds on the strong points of the 2018 generation, keeping the design, IO, keyboard, screen, and battery-size, but at the same time does not majorly improve on that crucial aspect many have been complaining about: the build quality. The outer case and chassis still creak, which is hard to accept in such an expensive product. It also gets a fairly dim screen, and if you’re unlucky like we were, you might even draw the short stick and get uneven backlighting and light bleeding.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 to achieve a much lower power consumption. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » 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.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
