Reviews for the MSI GT62VR-6RE16H21

85.3% MSI GT62VR 6RE Dominator Pro Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Clear statement. In line with the notebook launch of Nvidia's Pascal architecture, MSI announces a new high-end system based on the GeForce GTX 1070. The performance of the GT62VR is not only supposed to beat devices with the GTX 970M, but also notebooks equipped with the GTX 980M by quite a margin. Our review will find out if that is the case.

Thanks to new graphics technology, the MSI GT62VR Dominator Pro-005 is the top performer in the category, beating even high-end machines on 3D testing, and at a lower price. The physical design isn't particularly elegant, but that's not the primary concern for a stay-at-home system, and it's still less bulky and heavy than many gaming systems. There's more storage and memory than the GT72 Dominator Pro, and though the screen is smaller, it's hard to recommend anything but the newest graphics card, especially at this price.

The GT62VR is standing evidence that MSI knows how to build a gaming notebook. Thanks to Nvidia’s new “Pascal” graphics cards, specifically the GTX 1070, this 15.6-inch powerhouse was able to handily outperform even the fastest previous-gen gaming notebooks, and the GTX 1070 isn’t even the top-end card.

Overall, the MSI GT62VR Dominator Pro is one powerful model, easily outperforming anything before it including the GTX 980 models but offering a cooler and more efficient platform to serve as a gaming and workstation. MSI has clearly stuck with an effective chassis design choosing to maintain the Dominator Pro design but losing the tacky accent lights in the front to conserve power and simplify PCB layout.

The era of Pascal has arrived, and if the MSI GT62 Dominator is any indication, gamers are in for an awesome ride. For $1,999, you get a 15-inch system that can deliver impressive, buttery-smooth frame rates on both traditional and VR titles. As if that weren't enough, you also get face-melting transfer speeds and a workhorse of a processor.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile: 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.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» 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.  


6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

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

2.922 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).


83.88%: 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.
