Reviews for the MSI GT70 2PE-1051FR Dominator Pro

MSI GT70 2PE Dominator Pro Gaming Notebook Review: Appropriately named
Source: PC Perspective English Archive.org version
If you can come to grips with that, and as long as you don’t mind those other quibbles we mentioned, there’s really nothing stopping the MSI GT70 2PE from being your next favorite gaming companion. It retains all of the strengths of the GT60 model we reviewed last year, but with even more power and a truly ridiculous SSD RAID storage configuration. In short, it’s one of the fastest mobile gaming solutions you’re going to find—and it’s just $2,699.

Comment

Model:

Gamers are sure to be delighted with the release of the MSI GT70 2PE-1051FR Dominator Pro. It utilizes the best graphics chip for laptops out in the market today, the Nvidia GTX 880M. And if that is not enough, with 8 GB RAM paired and Intel Core i7 processor with a turbo clock of up to 3.7 GHz, the MSI Dominator Pro is the definition of a graphical monster. It goes without saying that this mammoth will play all high-end games with the highest setting with ease.

Having great graphics alone will not be enough if the screen is not on par. Fortunately, the MSI Dominator Pro has a 17.3 inch display, which is wide enough to enjoy games to its fullest. Thanks to its resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, it can display videos and pictures in the best FullHD quality. To top it off, the laptop also comes with a Blu-ray drive. Like other gaming laptops, the main issue is battery life and unfortunately the MSI Dominator Pro is no exception. Housing such powerful hardware under the hood, it is more feasible to keep the laptop connected to a power supply. So, it is not the best choice for a portable device.

For a gaming laptop, bulkiness and short battery life are to be expected. With such high-end graphics, the MSI Dominator Pro will, without a shadow of a doubt, give you the best gaming experience.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M: High-end graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

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.


17.30":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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


3.9 kg:

In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.


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).


91%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
