Reviews for the MSI GS70-2OD-002US
Source: PC Mag
The MSI GS70 Stealth (GS70 2OD-002US) demonstrates just how far the ultraportable gaming scene has come along since the Razer Blade (2012) first brought an ultraportable design to gaming machines. The portability and battery life is impressive, but no more so than the competing iBuypower Battalion Ultra-Thin M1771. With the Editors' Choice Origin EON17-SLX secure in its top spot with powerful performance, and other ultraportable systems with similar specs and results, the MSI GS70 Stealth (GS70 2OD-002US) is highly recommended for gamers who want an ultraportable system. But if you're seeking real power, you'll want to look elsewhere.

Over the years, laptop manufacturers have tried just about every approach to courting mobile gamers. Can you have your cake and eat it, too? Only half as thick and two-thirds the weight of most 17-inch gaming laptops, the sleek MSI GS70 Stealth is an appealing choice—as long as you don't expect it to set speed records.

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.
4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
