Reviews for the MSI GT628

79% Review MSI GT628 Gaming-Notebook | Notebookcheck
Too hot for this world? The GT628 is the youngest scion from MSI's gaming series. The 15.4" GT628 aims for the upper performance category with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 and the new Nvidia Geforce GTS 160M . Our extensive review tells you whether MSI have bitten off more than they can chew, or if the plan to offer a moderately priced gaming notebook with a high performance succeeds.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 160M:

55nm version of the GeForce 9800M GTS with almost identical current consumption to the 9800M GS.

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 2 Quad: Mobile version of the desktop Quad Core processor. Due to low clock rates it is not recommended for most applications.
Q9000:

Slow clocked quad core CPU (4 cores) that suffers especially in many games from the low clock speed. Therefore, not suited for games and only for highly multi threaded applications.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.4":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.77 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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).


80.5%: 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.
