Targeting creators and gamers, the new MSI GL75 9SE-256FR gamer laptop has a 17 inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen at 120Hz frequency which enhances fluidity in games. It offers hybrid storage of large capacity with SSD to reinforce reactivity, a good amount of RAM and a Hexa Core i7 Coffee Lake Refresh processor which ensure a great overall power and fast multimedia processing. The latter are accelerated by the high-end ray tracing NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card, GPU for playing recent titles. A USB 3.1 Type-C connector and a backlit chiclet keyboard are also on the agenda of this black PC with controlled weight.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI GL75 9SE-256FR
With its black chassis with red touches with angular lines, it sports a rather elegant and discreet gamer design.
The Cooler Boost 5 technology takes care of cooling it by combining 2 fans with 7 heat pipes which release heat through the ventilation grilles at the back and on the sides.
In terms of connectivity, this computer oriented creators and players is well equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its wireless modules Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, its video outputs HDMI and mini-DisplayPort useful in order to easily connect it to a TV for example, its Ethernet and audio ports but also its 3 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than with USB 2.0 if connected USB 3.0 devices.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit, here by an RGB system per key, which is practical to discern it in the dark.
The screen will appeal to lovers of High Definition content and in particular videos with its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 format. It displays significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, as well as more faithful to average colorimetry thanks to its IPS technology. Anti-reflective, the screen is more restful for the eyes in prolonged use than a glossy panel and ensures better visibility in bright surroundings (ex: outside).
In addition here, the screen adopts a frequency of 120Hz higher than the standard 60Hz and which improves the fluidity in games, which will appeal to gamers.
Performance, autonomy of the MSI GL75 9SE-256FR
The MSI GL75 9SE-256FR may be of interest to those looking for a high-performance, 17-inch portable PC that is game-oriented and creative.
Thanks to its dedicated GeForce RTX 2060 NVIDIA Turing card with ray tracing, this computer is able to support the user\’s favorite games.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 2060 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by the integrated NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus favors as much as possible the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor despite its very modest benefits because it consumes little energy and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2060 is therefore activated by Optimus to carry out graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. These two solutions of course allow you to view photos and videos.
In addition, software capable of harnessing GPU computing power can use the RTX 2060 to speed up processing. This is particularly the case with multimedia software such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
Creatives and players alike will be delighted to benefit from this PC with significant total capacity thanks to the on-board hybrid solution. It consists of a 256 GB SSD thought to accommodate the OS as well as the main games / software, and a 1000 GB hard drive comfortable to accommodate the rest, like personal creations.
Thanks to the SSD, we obtain a much better fluidity and reactivity than with a simple hard drive. As a result, we get, for example, faster starts / stops, faster game / software launches and multimedia processing, or even faster arrival on online game cards.
The heart of this computer is in keeping. Composed of a Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee Lake Refresh processor, 16 GB of RAM and built around an Intel HM370 chipset, it delivers overall power capable of satisfying demanding users.
This duo supports the RTX 2060 well in games but note that currently, the contribution of Hexa Core is variable in games compared to Quad Core.
The fact remains that this PC guarantees in particular much faster processing than a model based on a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, particularly in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of multicores, such as 3D rendering, retouching photo or video editing, which will interest creators.
Finally, keep in mind that this PC heats up and appears noisy when it is strongly pushed (ex: treatments, games). It will therefore be beneficial to use it in combination with a ventilated support ( remember to check the dimensions then! ) For example and in any case avoid using it on your knees or a duvet. On the autonomy side, bet on about 4 hours of operation far from a light socket.
