Reviews for the MSI GT73VR-6RE16SR451

88.3% MSI GT73VR 6RE Titan Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
The heart beats faster. While the majority of notebooks are only equipped with 60 Hz panels, the GT73VR is one of the first systems with a 120 Hz display. MSI does not compromise the other sections, either, and it ships the desktop replacement with numerous features including overclocking. Does the additional price compared to a standard gaming notebook pay off? We will find out.
90% MSI GT73VR Titan-017 Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Tech For Pennies English Archive.org version
Being one of the most expensive gaming laptops, you might be doubtful about MSI GT73VR Titan-017. But if you have the money, don’t worry. There’s just nothing it couldn’t do for a serious gamer, thanks to its GTX 1070 graphics, quad-core processor and solid-state drive. One thing to keep in mind is the resolution: Full HD is maximum, it won’t go beyond that. If you’re OK with this, then getting the MSI should be a noteworthy idea for a well-off player!

90% MSI GT73VR Titan Pro Review: A Beautiful Beast
Source: Notebookreview.com English Archive.org version
The MSI GT73VR Titan Pro is one of the most robust portable gaming options on the market. Sure that chassis is a bit bulky, but that space is well utilized to offer an excellent cooling system and space for SLI GPU options. Battery life is weak, but that’s only because the Titan Pro houses power intensive specs that provide excellent performance. With loads of customization options and one of the only built-in 120Hz monitors on the market, the GT73VR Titan Pro is also more than just a collection of expensive specs.

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.  


6820HK: 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.


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.

4.07 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 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).


89.58%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
