80% MSI GS65 Stealth 8RE Review
Source: Kitguru English
Overall this is a sleek laptop with plenty to commend it, however it consistently falls short of the performance you get from the Gigabyte Aero 15X. Ordinarily we wouldn’t compare two laptops in the conclusion of a review but the fact is these two models have a huge number of features in common. We do not think Gigabyte did anything especially clever with the Aero 15X, which suggests that MSI might have got something wrong.

MSI GS65 8RF-078 Stealth Thin

The MSI GS65 8RF-078 Stealth Thin is one of the GS series, which has been one of the benchmarks for ultra-thin gaming laptops. Power users and gamers will find one of the most powerful 15.6 "notebooks stylishly packaged in the ultra-compact 14" model case. This is made possible by the extremely narrow screen frame that encloses the nimble 144 Hz screen, which is a unique innovation in the mobile gaming sector. With a large 15.6-inch screen, the compact notebook can hardly be packaged for anything more compact with a housing height of less than 18 mm and just 1.8 kg on the scale, the GS65 Stealth Thin comfortably accompanies the user throughout the day. Its hinge system, which allows an opening angle of 180°, is the only part of this model that is plastic. It keeps the screen in the selected position during normal use of the laptop. Despite the compact aluminum housing, the new generation of Intel Core i7 eight-core processor and the fast GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics deliver top-notch performance. It has 16 GB of DDR4 RAM at 2,400 MHz and a 512 GB SSD with an M.2 interface that is compatible with NVME. The PCI Express SSD ensures rapid system and program starts. The 144 Hz true-color screen ensures absolutely fluid performance in the game and allows an unrestrained response. Thanks to its matte finish and a good level of brightness, it would be possible to use this screen outdoors. It also offers an excellent level of contrast, very high color fidelity (far exceeds 100 % of the sRGB color space), and some angles of relatively broad vision. The cooling system of the GS65, which is called Cooler Boost Trinity, consists of three fans that offer a 45 % higher air displacement according to the manufacturer. It will make a little noise during light usage and it will raise its speed under load, where the noise will be clearly audible. The high capacity of its integrated battery of 4 cells with 82 Wh allows the GS65 to reach an autonomy of close to 5 hours under light usage, which is quite long for a gaming laptop model with these characteristics. The SteelSeries gaming keyboard sets the stage with programmable single button illumination. Using an included application, it is possible to individually configure the backlight color of each of the keys, as well as define effects and animations in the keyboard illumination. Data transfer to external media is achieved using Thunderbolt 3 or USB 3.1 Gen 2 at the highest data rates. It has very good networking capabilities, being compatible with Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0. The MSI GS65 8RF-078 Stealth Thin is a high spec-ed laptop made for gamers. For those who are in the market for one, this is definitely a worthy choice. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Source: Engadget English
While the laptop-gaming market is getting increasingly crowded, MSI's Stealth Thin stands out because it's lightweight but still offers more than enough power for solid 1080p gaming. It's the sort of laptop that would have been unimaginable a few years ago: a 4.1-pound machine that could easily go toe-to-toe with gaming desktops.

Just a few years ago, if you said you wanted 1080p Very High or Ultra gaming performance in a laptop, you’d be lifting eight pounds of laptop. If you wanted a six-core CPU too, that’d be 12 pounds of laptop with a desktop chip inside. And decent battery life? Fuhgetaboutit.

The use of single-channel memory out of the box leads to reduced performance compared to a dual-channel setup, though this was also an issue with the Aero 15X. However the internal layout of the GS65 makes this problem difficult to fix on your own; it is fixable, just you’ll need to take the entire motherboard out and be very careful in the process.

Lastly, there’s the 82Wh battery of the GS65 Stealth Thin. MSI says that the larger battery allows for the notebook to sustain itself for 10 hours off a single charge, but given that this is an engineering sample, we’ll put that to the test in a full review.

MSI GS65 8RF-019DE Stealth Thin

Gaming laptops and slim builds don't go hand-in-hand. Mainly, it's because of the size of the GPUs and also the number of the cooling fans that are needed to keep the laptop calm and cool during its operations. However, it looks like MSI has finally broken that barrier with their latest gaming laptop, the MSI GS65 8RF-019DE Stealth Thin. Like its name, the MSI GS65 8RF-019DE Stealth Thin is well, really thin. The fully-gaming capable laptop is pretty compact for the power it packs under its hood; it measures only 17.7 mm thin and weighs just 1.8 kg. This stealth thin laptop has a lightweight aluminum housing that uses Mg-Li alloy for increased stability. Next, let's take a look under the bonnet of the MSI GS65 8RF-019DE Stealth Thin. The slim and compact laptop runs on an i7 8750H processor with a generous 16 GB of RAM and a powerful GeForce GTX 1070 with 8 GB of GDDR5 VRAM. It also has a super fast 512 GB SSD as internal storage. The combination of the listed hardware is more than sufficient for the gamers to run all current and upcoming games in high or ultrahigh settings effortlessly. The Stealth Thin laptop also comes with a SteelSeries RGB keyboard that is fully-optimized for gamers. It is worth mentioning that the Stealth Thin also comes with a 15.6-inch 144 Hz Full HD display with a 7 ms response time. The fast response time gives the gamers the ability to play their games at 144 frames per second. The monitor also has thin bezels to give way to a larger surface area for display. The colors are vivid, and the color reproductions are also very accurate. As for build quality, even though the Stealth Thin is made from aluminum, the chassis feels more like plastic. While there is not much to complain about build quality, it is not perfect. Some parts of the laptop, like the keyboard and the touchpad, feel loose whenever pressure is applied. However, the overall look of the laptop screams nothing but luxury and premium. Other than that, the laptop comes with three USB 3.1 Gen2 ports, an HDMI port, a Thunderbolt port, a Mini DisplayPort, a Kensington Lock and separate headphone and mic jacks. The Stealth Thin also deals with heat very efficiently. The cooling system has three fans and four heat pipes, and the heat management is pretty good overall. There is little doubt that the MSI GS65 8RF-019DE Stealth Thin is one of the most impressive gaming laptops out there. Besides the obvious powerful hardware that it packs, and contrary to the traditional outrageously-designed bulky gaming laptops, the subtle and minimalistic design of the Stealth Thin gives it an edge with gamers who also want to use their laptops for other use than gaming.

Tally up all of the GS65’s wins and it’s hard to find a better laptop that combines portability, power, and general usability, while still maintaining the ability to power through basically any AAA game you throw at it. And while it’s not the least expensive option in this group, it’s still hundreds of dollars less than a comparably equipped Razer Blade.

The MSI GS65 has it where it counts in many ways. It looks a whole heck of a lot nicer than the previous MSI models, it gets a nice IPS 144 Hz screen with tiny bezels, a better keyboard and powerful hardware that actually performs well, with some tweaking. On the other hand, there are two big faults with the machine and that’s the build quality and the cooling system, which can be corrected to some extent. Read on for the whole story.

Source: PC Authority English
Ultimately, it’s powerful, but not overpowered, it’s great to interact with and it’s highly-portable – the perfect trifecta. The exoskeleton chassis can’t beat the likes of Apple or HP’s business machines on the catwalk, but it stomps on the pretty boys everywhere else. At $3,399 it’s good value yet not cheap... but then what do you expect from, what is very likely, the best laptop we’ve ever tested?

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.

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).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q: Efficient high end graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP104 chip as the normal GTX 1070 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 15% lower performance but much lower power consumption. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.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.» 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++).

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.9 kg:


85.92%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
