MSI GT75VR Titan Review: A (Costly) Gaming Powerhouse
Source: Lowyat.net English
The MSI GT75VR Titan is a powerful, very capable gaming laptop with a sweet audio system. But as capable as it is, consumers will have to shell out a small fortune for it, and considering the fact that you can get a similarly-equipped gaming laptop for much less, the GT75VR is hard to recommend.

Source: Trusted Reviews English
The GT75VR Titan turns the laptop world on its head, pursuing a path of absolute performance with no regard for weight or aesthetics. It’s admirable, but it certainly isn’t for everybody. No pricing is available yet, nor is availability, but expect it to cost upwards of £2000.

MSI GT75VR Titan gaming laptop stays frosty, slays benchmarks
Source: CNet English
What really impressed was the cooling system. It packs in more heating vents than any other gaming laptop has managed before with four points of ventilation keeps core temps down, which in turn means that your performance won't suffer. Based on the quick demos, it was crushing graphics performance benchmarks. So be cool, Soda Pop.

The MSI GT75 VR looks like a solid desktop replacement, but it’s too early to call it without a closer look at the screen, and at just how far we can really push the system.

MSI GT75VR 7RF-012 Titan Pro

Certified by both Nvidia and VIVE, MSI is the 1st VR ready gaming laptop brand. The MSI GT75VR 7RF-012 Titan Pro is a bulky gaming laptop that combines all the advantages and disadvantages of a desktop replacement and relies on a mechanical keyboard with colorful lighting. Inspired by the GT83VR, the whole new GT75VR offers profound improvements in both sight and touch. MSI sticks to its traditional design language for the casing's look. The dark surfaces, some of which are brushed aluminum (lid, keyboard area), are adorned with red components that give the 17-inch machine a playful look. The wrist rest's material surprised us a bit. MSI has opted for a soft-touch finish like a rubber coating, which is just as sensitive as the other surfaces here. The 120 Hz panel has been adopted from the GT73VR. The N173HHE-G32 (CMN1747) is a Full HD screen based on TN technology. Apart from the middling viewing angles (typical TN problem) and mediocre brightness (average: 262 cd/m²), it does a good job. The low black level of 0.26 cd/m² results in a very high contrast (approx. 1,050:1) that is on par with the competition. MSI's GT75VR is definitely situated in the premium range with its lightning-fast Kaby Lake processor and exorbitantly expensive top model from Nvidia's Pascal generation. 32 GB of DDR4 RAM and 1.5 TB of storage also point to a genuine desktop replacement that offers high future security. MSI has intentionally omitted Nvidia's brand new Max-Q design in the GT75VR, allowing the GeForce GTX 1080 to show its full beauty. The performance of Nvidia's next-generation GeForce GTX 1080 GPU is expected to be more than 40% better than the GeForce GTX 900M series'. Thanks to the powerful cooling system, the DirectX 12 chip supported by a generous 8 GB of GDDR5X VRAM can use its clock potential extremely well. A user can also live the most incredible and immersive 3D sound experience with Nahimic, highly acclaimed by gaming communities across the world. It offers high definition sound technology that boosts the audio and voice performance of the gaming computer. In 2017, the Nahimic 2+ release brings customizations like audio profile creation or more fine-tuning options for the Sound Tracker. The mechanical keyboard by SteelSeries is absolutely pleasing. With only 3 mm of total key travel distance and 1.5 g actuation, this ultimate gaming system is yet another revolutionary keyboard built for victors. After typing on this mechanical keyboard, users will never want to return to a traditional keyboard. With the introduction of the new arrow-shaped design for a heightened aggression appeal, the palm rest has also been elevated to have better ergonomics and comfort on the wrists after long periods of gaming. The GT75VR 7RF-012 Titan Pro is certainly in the top segment of the gaming laptop category. If one is willing to pay the price, this is one of the ones to look out for.

That may turn out to be the key differentiator between the two, and it’s probably MSI’s best bet at wooing the select few looking for an insane laptop to replace their desktop. The company bucked the trend of slim and light notebooks with the Titan Pro, but even if it can get away with that for now, it’s not clear how much of an audience there will be for a niche product like that going forward.

MSI GT75VR 7RE-039NL Titan SLI

Oh hey, look, there is a Titan in the room! MSI brings all it has to the table. HDR ready screen, 4K display, i7 desktop processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 GPU. Of course do not forget the 512 GB SSD. Did  mention I HDR again? As you can guess this 17.3 inch laptop, as far as the specification says, is a gaming machine - surprise! But looking at it, you start wondering, does it have to be this big? Asus and Acer are also on the same train, they have supposedly mobile gaming machines that are thick and heavy. How heavy? How about 4.5 kg heavy? Do not forget the 1.2 kg power supply. So something close to 6 kg… Let me ask, do you even lift bro? I can not underestimate the raw power this device provides. It is for sure that you can play everything you want in every possible settings. This 17.3 inch laptop can do whatever you want from it. But then, when you have such power, can you control it? Since great power, comes with great thermal responsibility, MSI provided pipes, too many pipes in the base unit. There are 4 exhaust vents; 1 left, 1 right, 2 at rear and all with visible heat pipes. Depending on the model there can be 10 total visible heat pipes. Heat is at the core of this device, therefore it has a button to activate all fans at 100 % speed just to cool it down faster. But then you realize what you have is not a laptop, but a miniature jet engine. It is a trade off. There is just one thing that i did not like much about this device and that is being future proof. There is only one USB 3.1 connection, the rest of the 5 available ports are just USB 3.0. You get an HDMI and a mini DisplayPort connection and, that is it. I would have expected such a huge device to offer something more (besides the screen), because there is already an established competition and you got to be different to step out. There is Acer’s Predator series, Asus comes with the G703 series, Alienware was always into gaming machines. Since all these series provide raw hardware power, as customers we want to see something different. RGB backlit mechanical keyboards, huge fans, strong hardware, nice screens… They all sound the same after a while. What makes MSI’s model different? Maybe it is the HDR ready screen, but besides that, nothing else. This model is priced around 4500$ and above. At this price point, it delivers what it has to. But the question you need to ask is whether you want mobility or not. If mobility is a concern, there are Max-Q models that are way thinner compared to this beast. But if you are thinking of keeping your laptop just as a desktop replacement, then GT75VR might be your choice. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

70% MSI GT75VR 7RF Titan Pro Review: Big, loud, and very pricey
Source: Toptenreviews English
One other thing to note is the fans. The GT75VR boasts a robust cooling system, featuring MSI’s “cooler boost” technology. It certainly succeeded at keeping things cool, but it was incredibly loud doing so. Even after tweaking some settings, the fans made a ton of noise whenever they spun up even a little bit. For all the hubbub over impressive cooling tech—not to mention the massive chassis—we hoped that things would stay quiet during regular gameplay, cranking up the volume only when pushed to the absolute limit, -bo moore.

The MSI GT75VR Titan Pro is an excellent machine. At $4,200 how could it not be though? The better question, is it worth that price? Honestly, that answer really depends on what you want. Is the raw computing power alone with that steep entry price? No. You can easily build a desktop or a customizable laptop with similar specs at a more affordable price point. However, what you can’t get are all the extras. The wonderful mechanical keyboard, an insane array of ports, a full suite of backlight LEDs, and the gorgeous 4K panel make the MSI GT75VR Titan Pro truly something unique and special.

The MSI GT75VR is a positive evolution of the GT73VR. The refreshed design looks both bold and aggressive without going over the top. The single most noticeable change is the mechanical keyboard with per-key RGB backlighting, which is a pure delight to type on. Excluding the odd three-column number pad layout, this keyboard is head-and-shoulders better than the one on the GT73VR.

Gaming Colossus. The GT75 8RG Titan marks MSI’s relaunch of its most powerful and massive 17-inch notebook. The desktop replacement includes a hexa-core CPU, a 120 Hz display and NVIDIA’s fastest mobile GPU to fit its high-end billing. We will be putting this gaming newcomer up against the toughest of competitors.
The MSI GT75 Titan Laptop Review: Hex-Core DTR
Source: AnandTech English
Overall, the MSI GT75 Titan is a worthy successor to the outgoing models. The GT series is not inexpensive. You can get devices that are just as fast for less money, but they are not likely to offer the same build quality, or premium features like a mechanical keyboard, and 10 Gbps network. The GT75 isn’t perfect, with minor issues like a less than amazing trackpad, but that can be overlooked when the target market is almost certainly going to be using it with a mouse on a desk. The battery life is terrible, but once again, that’s completely normal in this type of system.

However, this laptop is incredibly expensive, out of the reach for all but the most financially solvent gamers. Our top pick for under $2,000 with this size display is the HP Omen, which offers great overall and graphics design, but has a last-gen processor. For a bit less dough than this MSI, you can get the $3,899 Aorus X9, which is similarly specced but lighter and a touch more powerful. However, if you have the means and room to accommodate it, the MSI GT75 Titan deserves the prime spot in your gaming battlestation.

MSI GT75 Titan 8RG-201UK

The MSI GT75 Titan 8RG-201UK is currently MSI's most powerful 17-inch gaming laptop in the market. Let's see what you can get with MSI's powerhouse that comes with an exorbitant price tag. For starters, MSI equipped their latest gaming laptop with a 6-core-12-threads 2.9 GHz Intel i9-8950HK CPU, the all-powerful processor that comes with 4.8 GHz boost clock. This CPU can provide a crazy amount of computing power, that is if the chassis can maintain a stable and cool temperature. It shouldn't be a problem for this titan because of its massive built. This laptop also comes with 32 GB of RAM and the powerful GTX 1080 GPU. For its jaw-dropping price-tag, the MSI GT75 Titan 8RG-201UK also comes with a 1920 x 1080p Full HD 120Hz G-Sync monitor, a SteelSeries mechanical backlit keyboard and a set of powerful speakers that include two 3 W Speaker and a 5 W Woofer. Weighing at 4.5 kg, this titan is definitely not the easiest to lug around. The GT75 Titan 8RG-201UK comes with two power adapters because of the power-hungry i9 CPU and GTX 1080 graphics card. The laptop also has an SD card reader, six USB 3.1 ports, four 3.5 mm audio jacks, a Kensington Lock, an HDMI 2.0 port, a Mini Display Port, a Thunderbolt port, and a Gigabit Ethernet port. Now, let's move on to the aesthetics of the laptop. First of all, the MSI GT75 Titan 8RG-201UK looks as premium as its outrageous price-tag. The laptop comes in black color, with red accents and a huge MSI symbol on the middle of the lid. On top of the monitor, there is a 1080p 30 fps webcam and a built-in mic for video conferences. As mentioned, the MSI GT75 Titan 8RG-201UK comes with a SteelSeries keyboard. It is really impressive that MSI was able to fit a full-size mechanical keyboard into a laptop. The keyboard also comes with a full-color backlight, and so you can personalize it from millions of colors. As for the companion trackpad, the laptop has one molded directly onto the framework. At the right-hand side of the laptop, there are five buttons with its own function. The power button is at the top-most, and it switches on with a red light. The next button lets the user choose between the more powerful NVIDIA GPU or the shared Intel GPU. Another button lets the user increase the fan speed to the max level, and the next one is to launch the X-Split function. The last button enables the user to customize the keyboard's backlight configuration. The bottom of the laptop was designed with cooling capabilities in mind. With the large chassis and the many powerful fans, the GT75 Titan 8RG-201UK should be able to maintain a stable and cooling thermal performance. It is an important point to note due to the heat generated by both the i9 CPU and GTX 1080 GPU. This powerhouse titan may be extremely expensive, but with the i9 CPU and the GTX 1080 GPU, it certainly can take on any tasks, gaming or otherwise. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

MSI GT75 Titan 8RG Review
Source: Vortez English
Insane levels of speed, a beautiful 1080p panel, a solid chassis and the SteelSeries mechanical keyboard are all amazing, but the heat and noise levels ruin the experience sadly.

MSI GT75 8RG-008ES Titan

The GT75 8RG-008ES Titan is MSI's latest offering for the community of hardcore gamers. Why only hardcore gamers? Well, most probably because casual gamers will hesitate upon seeing the equally 'huge' price of this gaming beast. Let's also begin by saying that this is a relatively huge machine. Measuring 58 (H) x 428 (W) x 287 (L) mm, this Titan comes with a 17.3" Full-HD display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and weighs about 4.6 kilograms; it is certainly not an easy or light machine to lug around. The onboard mechanical keyboard, while tempting, must have added many extra grams to the machine. The MSI GT75 8RG-008ES Titan comes equipped with the new 2.6GHz 6-core Intel Core i7-8850H processor. It also houses the impressive and powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card with 8 GB of DDR5X RAM. If that is not enough, be prepared to be wowed by the massive 32 GB of RAM (upgradeable to 64 GB)! As for storage, it comes with a huge 512GB SSD and the standard 1TB HDD. The MSI GT75 8RG-008ES Titan also has a good number of ports, including one Thunderbolt USB-3.1 Type-C port, five USB-3.1 Type-A ports, one SD-card reader, one HDMI output and one mini DisplayPort output. In addition to a microphone and a separate headphone S/PDIF jack, it also has one line-in and one line-out jack. For connectivity, it has one 10Gbit Ethernet port as well as a dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0 combo adapter.

As mentioned previously, the Titan comes with an RGB backlit mechanical keyboard, branded as the "Rapid Mechanical RGB Keyboard", that has a 25% faster trigger. With the SteelSeries Engine 3, the Titan also lets the user control the "Per-Key RGB Backlight" to customise every single key to their liking. As for the sound, the laptop comes with the Nahimic 3 audio technology that delivers 360 degrees of immersive audio experience that is just perfect for competitive and VR gaming. The speakers are also able to produce high-resolution, lossless audio with ESS Sabre HiFi DAC that audiophiles will appreciate.  MSI is furthermore committed to helping gamers embrace an immersive gaming experience. With one HDMI output, one mini DisplayPort output and one Thunderbolt 3 Type-C port, the user will be able to extend the visuals to three external monitors simultaneously using MSI's Matrix Display and latest Surround Mode technologies. The laptop also comes with MSI’s very own cooling technology called the Cooler Boost TITAN; it uses dual fans and nine heat pipes for quick and constant cooling performance. This high-end gaming machine is definitely a Titan in its own class. Hardcore gamers will be able to milk all the power that the MSI GT75 8RG-008ES Titan comes with and still have some to spare. And like its name, the Titan may just live up to everyone's expectations.

MSI GT75 8RG-086NL

I am not a big fan of desktop replacements and I have mentioned this in my other reviews. But today, I am reviewing another desktop replacement, the so called MSI GT75. My unliking for desktop replacements is not because of their performance or whatsoever, but just due to their immobility. With over 4 kg of weight, it is for sure going to sit most of the time on your desk and not on your lap. Carrying it around is another issue with all the required cables and connectors as well. Since MSI GT75 8 series indicates that it is using 8th Gen Coffee Lake processors, they come with the newest connections as well. Such as Thunderbolt 3. The biggest issue? Well, it is the required power consumption to get most out of this laptop. You get not just one, but two power connectors and they need to be connected to each other with a so-called bridge. So, when you want to plug in this device to an outlet, well you will be needing 2 outlets. The total weight? Over 2.1 kg. So, if you want to carry this so-called laptop, you need to carry something about 7 kg, which almost equals an ATX case. Would you still call it mobile? The best parts? You get the fastest i9 processor, 4K screen and GTX 1080 GPU, all sounds good. The cooling solution is just fine, case design etc. all delivers what is necessary. I am assuming most of the users will plug in a separate keyboard and a mouse and gonna use this performance monster with additional screens. In the end, it will become your desktop. For me what matters is the option to upgrade. With 32 GB of RAM and 1.5 TB of disk space (512 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD) I doubt you will be needing any upgrades for performance for a while. The only bottleneck in the near future could be the GPU. I would have never thought that a GTX 1080 can be the bottleneck of a system, but here I am eating my words. It is not that the GTX 1080 can't deliver, it is what Nvidia’s Turing cards can provide. The newest GPUs are expected to come with GDDR6 and double the size of memory. They are meant for 4K gaming, where a single GTX 1080 falls short in some titles (by fall short I mean above or close to 60 fps of course). My emphasis is on GPU because, when you buy something like this, which costs over 4000 Euros, you want it to last at least for a few years. But hear me out my friend, it is not possible in today’s technological world. Lets say you buy this laptop, how much it will loose from its value next year when the market is flooded with Turing GPUs? Overall, you will get what you ask for. The main question needed to be asked is, "Which one is more favorable for you?". Being close to 7 kg - actually over 7 kg with all adapters - should you buy a desktop instead, which you can upgrade as much as you like? Or go for this and play games with your friends whenever and wherever you want as long as you can reserve two power outlets for you. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (Laptop): Pascal based laptop graphics card using GDDR5 graphics memory. Should offer a similar performance to the deskto GTX 1080. However, there is also a more power efficient "Max-Q" version that performs worse than the normal GTX1080 and is used in thin and light laptops.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 SLI (Laptop): Two high-end GTX 1070 in SLI combination. The 3D performance depends on the driver support for the game and may range from 0 - 90% faster than a single GTX 1070.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): 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.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI (Laptop): Two high-end GTX 1080 graphics card combined in an SLI combination. The gaming performance depends on the SLI profile support for the used game and can range from nothing to nearly 90% gains compared to a single GTX 1080.» 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.
