Reviews for the MSI GT60-2OD-026US

MSI GT60 2OD-026US Gaming Notebook Review: Desktop-Class Mobile Gaming
Source: PC Perspective English Archive.org version
Considering its full selection of ports and A/V output options, the GT60 2OD-026US could seriously pass for a primary workstation—a desktop replacement. That may help you digest the $2K price tag, which—while nearly double that of the Lenovo Y500—makes sense when you consider what a powerful and versatile machine you are actually getting. With a little better battery life, a little less heft, the absence of the warranty sticker, and some minor tweaks to the user interface here and there, it’d be hard to find more to ask for the price. As it stands, however, with just a few exceptions, the GT60 2OD-026US is one heck of a well-rounded gaming monster—and certainly worthy of strong consideration if you’re in the market.

In terms of the performance the MSI GT60 is sublime. The fourth-generation i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, GTX 780M GPU, and 128 GB SSD ensure lighting fast performance and response. The notebook is capable of running any game currently on the market, and more importantly it can run any game with extreme efficiency.

The design of this MSI notebook follows previous models with a plastic and metal hybrid chassis. The lid has a brushed aluminum design with a matte black plastic frame. The interior is also black plastic except for the palm rest, which is also brushed aluminum. The notebook measures 15.0 x 10.2 x 1.8-inches (wdh) and weighs 7.6-pounds, so it's quite heavy.

With its fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and Nvidia GTX 780M graphics, the MSI GT60 2OD-026US is a gaming beast. While we're not as enamored with its design as we are with the new Alienwares', the GT60 outperforms the Alienware 17 on a number of tests, and does so for about $400 less.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M: High-end graphics card of the GeForce 700M series based on the Kepler architecture.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» 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.  


4800MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.7 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.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.4 kg:

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI) was founded in 1986 in Taiwan. MSI is especially known as a manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards for PCs, but also offers computer accessories, complete systems, motherboards, graphics cards, laptops, desktop PCs, monitors and other components. However, the Microstar brand name in Germany belongs to the Medion company. MSI is known for its gaming products and has developed a wide range of gaming laptops and desktop PCs. The company is also active in workstations, servers and industrial automation. MSI has offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.


83.33%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
