The fans in the MSI GL75 Leopard 10SFR get really loud

MSI GL75 Leopard 10SFR in review: Successful gaming laptop with a 144 Hz display
With the GL75 Leopard, MSI has a powerful 17.3-inch gaming laptop in its range that brings all modern games smoothly onto the responsive Full HD screen (144 Hz, IPS). The rest of the equipment is also in order: 16 GB of memory (dual-channel mode), NVMe SSD, and a 1 TB HDD.

The MSI GL75 Leopard belongs to the gaming laptops in the 17.3-inch format. You'll have to do without a full metal case. Only the back of the lid is made of aluminum. The remaining chassis components are made of plastic.

The combination of a Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor and a GeForce RTX 2070 graphics core brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the screen. Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings can usually be used. Resolutions beyond Full HD are also possible when an appropriate monitor is connected. However, the quality controls shouldn't be adjusted too high in this case.

In order to cool the hardware sufficiently, the GL75's two fans turn up strongly under load. We measured a maximum sound pressure level beyond 50 dB(A). Gaming is no fun without a headset. However, the case only heats up moderately thanks to the fans' heavy spinning.

Buyers of the GL75 won't run out of storage space that quickly. Besides a 512 GB NVMe SSD, the laptop also comes with a conventional 2.5-inch hard disk that offers a capacity of 1 TB. In addition, there's 16 GB of RAM (2x 8 GB, dual-channel mode). An upgrade to up to 64 GB would be possible.

The matte 144 Hz IPS Full HD screen scores points with stable viewing angles, sufficient brightness, good contrast, short response times, and great color reproduction. The color-space coverage is also pleasing. Unfortunately, the display flickers at a frequency of 208 Hz at brightness levels of 30% and below. Due to the low frequency, sensitive users could experience headaches and/or eye problems.

More information and many benchmark results can be found in our review of the MSI GL75 Leopard 10SFR.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
