Reviews for the MSI Megabook GX610

70% MSI GX610-008UK laptop PC
Source: Tech Advisor English
The MSI GX610-008UK is a rare example of an AMD-powered laptop in an Intel world. The MSI GX610-008UK's asking price of £679 is pretty low, so if you're a gamer on a budget then it may just suffice, but in most other areas its performance is adequate rather than exemplary. The keyboard is also very cramped to use and it would be much better if the space dedicated to the numeric keypad was redistributed to the main keyboard.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600: This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS graphic card for laptops and performs in games much better than the Nvidia card.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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).


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
