Reviews for the MSI GT72 2PE-072UK

90% MSI GT72 2PE Dominator Pro (072UK) Review
Source: Kitguru English
First impressions of the GT72 2PE Dominator Pro are positive. The bundle is both extensive and carefully thought out – MSI include a fancy backpack and a MSI branded Siberia V2 Steelseries headset, Kinzu V2 Steelseries mouse and dog tags. While many will scoff at ‘unnecessary accessories’ – it all adds to the feeling of purchasing an exclusive, luxury product. Apple have been doing it successfully for years.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M: High-end graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series. 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.  
4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 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.
