Versatile black ultrabook geared towards gamers and creators, the MSI GF63 10SCSR-683FR Thin is a thin and light gaming laptop whose frequency of 144Hz of the 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen improves fluidity in games. Nomadic with its 7h battery life, it is capable of running a number of games thanks to its NVIDIA Turing GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics card which accelerates image processing such as the Hexa Core i7 Comet Lake-H processor. Thanks to fast SSD storage, responsiveness is enhanced. Also included is a backlit chiclet keyboard as well as Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of MSI GF63 10SCSR-683FR Thin
It sports an elegant and discreet design with its thin and light chassis in light black brushed aluminum, red tips bringing a gamer touch.
Cooler Boost 3 technology uses fans and heat pipes to cool it.
The SHIFT function is also present to switch between 3 operating modes (Sport, Comfort and Eco) and Cooler Boost 3 technology to cool it using fans and heat pipes.
In terms of connectivity, this Ultrabook gamer is well equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5 for remote connections and communications, its HDMI video output (positioned at the back) practical for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports or even 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when connecting USB 3.0 devices.
Unlike the standard 15-inch, here the keyboard is not accompanied by a numeric keypad on the right which may put off some.
On the other hand, the keyboard can be backlit so that its keys can be better distinguished in a reduced light environment. It was designed with SteelSeries to adapt to the habits of gamers.
The screen will appeal to gamers with its frequency of 144Hz which improves fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. Thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos. Anti-reflective coating, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
As it adopts IPS technology, the screen also offers more faithful than average colorimetry as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles.
Performance, battery life of the MSI GF63 10SCSR-683FR Thin
The MSI GF63 10SCSR-683FR Thin is a versatile 15-inch portable PC performance and nomadic oriented game and creation.
It will be of interest to those who want to be able to use their PC all day long away from a power outlet. Because autonomy side, we can count on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose lightness and finesse facilitate transport.
However, this black gaming laptop PC delivers solid overall performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users. It is indeed based on an Intel HM470 chipset, a good amount of 8 GB RAM and a Comet Lake Quad Core i5-10300H processor.
The Quad Core i5-10300H provides faster processing than a low-power Quad Core processor, the difference being particularly noticeable under work requiring CPU resources using multicore, such as photo retouching, 3D rendering or editing, which will interest creative.
They will also appreciate that processing is accelerated under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power (eg Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, Sony Vegas), thanks to the on-board GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, here in Max-Q edition .
This dedicated NVIDIA Turing graphics card can also run many games if we accept to make some concessions under the titles greedy in graphics resources to obtain a good playability.
Whether with the Intel UHD 630 graphics solution housed in the Quad Core i5-10300H or the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, you can obviously watch photos and videos on this Ultrabook which takes advantage of NVIDIA Optimus technology.
Optimus switches in practice automatically and in real time between the Intel UHD 630 and the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti when necessary. It favors the first as much as possible despite its modest benefits because its low energy consumption favors autonomy compared to the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti.
In terms of storage, MSI chooses an SSD that rivals the standard hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, more energy efficient, more robust and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we get much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. Thus, for example, we get faster on the cards of online games and we benefit from much faster starts / stops, software / game launches and application launches.
Of course if 512 GB is too tight, we can rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to take advantage of fast transfers.
Here, we also have the possibility of adding a second SSD or a hard drive to this PC thanks to the free 2.5 inch slot.
Finally, keep in mind that the lightness and finesse of this computer imply noise and heat in the event of heavy loads (eg: treatments, games).
