Same design and faster performance. MSI is claiming the "world's fastest 120Hz/3ms display" for its 2017 GS series with even faster GPU options.

The thinnest lineup in MSI's G series of gaming notebooks won't be getting any thinner anytime soon, but the existing design is about to get even more powerful features. MSI has just revealed that its GS63VR and GS73VR gaming notebooks will be configurable up to the GTX 1070 with brand new 120 Hz/3 ms display options not yet available on any existing notebook. Previously, the GS series was limited up to the GTX 1060 GPU with 120 Hz/5 ms displays for the 17-inch models.

Interestingly, the manufacturer will not be revising the Cooler Boost Trinity cooling solution in the new GS series refresh. The GTX 1070 is a very demanding GPU with a significantly higher TDP requirement than the GTX 1060, so we're crossing our fingers in hopes that the new GS notebooks won't run any warmer or louder than they already do. The 120 Hz/3 ms display, however, should satisfy twitch-based first-person shooters with both significantly less ghosting and faster response times.

See our existing reviews on the GS63VR and GS73VR for more detailed information on the series. More details such as resolution options and street prices should come in the next few days. The GS series is also expected to sport Nvidia's rumored family of low-power Pascal GPUs.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
