Gaming notebooks seem to sell very well these days, especially with the latest CPU price cuts from Intel, and the budget gaming sector is always the most profitable for OEMs like MSI. The latest GV62 7RC budget gaming notebook from MSI offers decent performance, being powered by Intel’s I7 CPUs and Nvidia’s MX150 GPU, but it also integrates exclusive features you will not see in other budget notebooks.

The GV62 7RC will most likely come in several variants featuring Intel’s i7-7700HQ, i5-7300HQ or i3-7100 CPUs. However, all variants will be powered by Nvidia’s MX150 GPU that comes standard with 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM and is supposed to be 64% faster than its predecessor – the GTX 940MX. The budget models come with 4 GB DDR4-2400 of RAM, upgradeable to 32 GB. The notebook also integrates an NVMe PCI-e Gen3X4 SSD that is up to 5 times faster than a SATA3 SSD, a feature we do not usually get to see in budget models.

Other special features include:
•    15.6” IPS-level 1080p display with 170+ degrees viewing angles and 94% NTSC color gamut
•     Matrix Display technology that allows up to tCwo external monitors to be connected simultaneously, through an HDMI port and a mini Display Port
•    Cooler Booster technology, which keeps all components 5 to 10% cooler
•    MSI SHIFT – an overclocking utility that dynamically adjusts performance based on custom profiles created by the user
•    Nahimic 2+ 3D sound speakers that emulate a 7.1 sound setup
•    Red backlit SteelSeries keyboard
•    2 month free membership for WTFast – a software that provides reduced latency in games

The i7-7700HQ model with 4 GB RAM costs US$749, but availability information has not yet been disclosed.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
