Reviews for the MSI GT83VR-6RF-64SR451
The latest MSI Titan SLI is deeply impressive. However, it is clear the dual GTX 1080 GPUs have pushed the air cooling system to its limits. While the coolers have little trouble keeping the hardware below 90 degrees they can only do this by spinning the turbines at quite a rate and the consequence is noise. Lots of noise. As a portable solution, the Titan makes better sense than Asus GX800VH. But even so, it is big and heavy and you need to lug two large power bricks wherever you go.

Model: The latest GT83VR is built to capture the heart of gamers. Codenamed the “Titan”, it is powered by the latest GeForce GTX 10 series graphics. The GT83VR casts an imposing figure at first sight in particular with its prominent air vents at the back of the machine. The monstrous-racing design shouts 'Gaming' the moment it is turned on. Its dimensions measure 458 x 339 x 42~69 mm and it weighs a hefty 5.5 kg (with battery). Its chunkiness reigns over the likes of Acer’s Predator Series or even its rival sibling, the GT72VR. The keyboard which is illuminated with red backlight emits a menacing red glow under dim conditions. The silver lining printed keys are capable of being subject to long-term wear and tear. It boasts a whooping 18.4-inch FHD IPS display, which delivers true-to-life viewing experience. With the True Color technology and the True Color profile, colors are displayed in higher accuracy.
Sound quality is equally superb as it is enhanced with Sound by Dynaudio 4 + 1 Speaker System, which offers high definition sound technology. Similar to the GT72VR, the Titan is built VR Technology-ready. With the one-click VR solution, gamers can immerse themselves in a mind-blowing virtual reality, gaming experience. Powered by the latest 6th generation Intel Core i7 processors, the capacity of the GT83VR to play demanding games is top-notch. It supports up to 64 GB DDR4 RAM and comes with a 1 TB HDD and a 512 GB SSD. The Killer DoubleShot Pro technology, a software enhancement in all MSI gaming laptops, kills out unnecessary performance lags. Again MSI outperforms its rivals in the temperature control technology on the Titan. Users may also opt for easy overclocking with the MSI SHIFT Technology. The exclusive SHIFT Technology pushes the system clock speeds to the extreme while minimizing noise and temperature. The ability to keep the machine exceptionally cool is boosted by triple fans with 15 heat pipes.
The Titan is also packed with connectivity options, which include six USB 3.0 /3.1 gen. 1 ports, a USB 3.1 gen. 2 port, an HDMI port, two DisplayPorts, a Kensington Lock, and a card reader. Networking is enabled both by WiFi and Bluetooth. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home. In a clash of the titans, the GT83VR certainly emerges fast and powerful albeit with a steep price tag. Its dimensions and weight certainly are not suitable for portability, but if for some reason a 18.4" screen laptop is needed, there aren't many laptops that can beat the MSI GT83VR-6RF-64SR451. It is certainly a beastly gaming machine.

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.
