MSI WP65 workstation is mostly a reskinned GF63 or GF65
It's common for an OEM to utilize existing resources from one family of products and apply them to a new lineup to reduce R&D costs. In the case for MSI, its dedicated lineup of mobile workstations borrow heavily from the mobile G series of gaming laptops to the point where they can sometimes appear identical even though the systems cater to different audiences.
MSI's latest budget workstation is the WP65 equipped with the Core i7-9750H and Quadro P620 with no other GPU option. One quick look at the chassis, however, and the overall design screams of gaming origin. The WP65 shares similar physical features to both the GF63 and newer GF65 down to having the exact same dimensions between them.
The palette swap is not a perfect copy and paste. The red dragon logo has been changed to a golden workstation logo, the red backlit keyboard keys are now white, the brushed aluminum outer lid is now more matte, and the internal motherboard layout is slightly different if comparing to the newer GF65. Nonetheless, core features like key feedback, battery capacity, and port options remain the same meaning that if you've had any experience with one model, then you will know almost exactly how the other model will be.
