Reviews for the MSI GV62 7RC-225UK

MSI GV62 7RC Review
Source: Vortez English Archive.org version
GV62 can be purchased for around £750 GBP in the UK and we have no pricing currently for the United States. There has been some significant price drops recently in the Black Friday Sales, and come January 2018, this laptop may feature in some of the New Year deals too – so it’s worth keeping an eye out!

MSI GV62 7RC – Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Hardwareheaven English Archive.org version
The MX150 graphics chip has plenty of power for esports – which is exactly the kind of games that this machine is designed to tackle. It’s fast enough for older titles and casual games, too, and the rest of the specification can handle web browsing and general computing.

60% MSI GV62 7RC review
Source: Techradar English Archive.org version
The MX150 is a solid esports chip, and it’s built into a good-looking and easily-portable notebook. The low price means that the screen and build quality aren’t as good as they could be, though, and similarly-priced machines have better graphics chips.

NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i5-7300HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.5 - 3.5 GHz without Hyper Threading (which is supported by the faster i7 CPUs). The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1000 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI) was founded in 1986 in Taiwan. MSI is especially known as a manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards for PCs, but also offers computer accessories, complete systems, motherboards, graphics cards, laptops, desktop PCs, monitors and other components. However, the Microstar brand name in Germany belongs to the Medion company. MSI is known for its gaming products and has developed a wide range of gaming laptops and desktop PCs. The company is also active in workstations, servers and industrial automation. MSI has offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.


65%: Such a poor rating is rare. There are only a few notebooks that were rated even worse. The rating websites do not give a purchase recommendation here.
