Reviews for the MSI P65 8RF-451 - Creator

87.2% MSI P65 Creator 8RF (i7-8750H, GTX 1070 Max-Q, 512 GB SSD, 144 Hz) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
MSI's Prestige series promises desktop-level performance while maintaining maximum mobility at the same time. We have decided to take a closer look at whether MSI managed to keep its promises. At first glance, the device seems to keep its word, and a hexa-core CPU and GTX 1070 are great for much more than just working.
