The MSI WS63 7RK is a hugely capable mobile workstation. You’re still not getting all the performance of a desktop in a notebook form, but there is a very useful amount of professional 3D and content creation power available here.

70% MSI WS63 Mobile Workstation Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The MSI WS63 provides a highly impressive level of performance for its size and weight. At just 4 pounds and 0.7 inches thick, the WS63 is thin and light for a 15.6-inch notebook in general, let alone a high-performance model. We were unable to locate a competing notebook that offered an equally or more powerful graphics card that was remotely close to its form factor.

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 Quadro P3000: High-end workstation graphics card based on the 16nm GP106 chip (similar to the consumer GTX 1060) from the Pascal architecture.NVIDIA Quadro P2000: Mid-range workstation graphics card based on the 14nm GP107 chip (similar to the consumer GTX 1050 Ti) from the Pascal architecture. The Quadro GPUs offer certified drivers, which are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications (CAD, DCC, medical, prospection, and visualizing applications).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). 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.
