MSI GV62 7RC Review
Source: Vortez English
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
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.

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.

81.5% MSI GV62 8RE (i5-8300H, GTX 1060, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
New engine, same body. MSI brings Coffee Lake to their entry-level GV62 line. While the new Intel CPU is a breath of fresh air, it is the only real change to the machine since last year. Buggy system behavior and a cheap plastic case keep the GV62 8RE from being little more than white noise.

Comment

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

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).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Notebook): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops.

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.
