Chassis, connectors, screen MSI GE63 9SE-814FR
At first glance, the case of this new MSI GE63 updated for 2019 does not differ from other MSI GE63 marketed so far. It still sports this structured black shell punctuated with red details and the elegant brushed effect on the back of the screen and around keyboard. But the apparent sobriety hides on the ignition of the PC a look even more “fun” with its multicolored LEDS that underline the structure of the lid and keyboard backlit RGB key touch. This “Mystic Light” identity is fully customizable, all elements can be synchronized or illuminated differently. It is immediately less consensual.
MSI always relies heavily on its many integrated technologies that will enrich the gaming experience. There is a new interface Dragon Center 2.0 that allows to manage the performance of the PC through different profiles of use, the MatrixDisplay system to extend the experience. external two-screen display or the arrival of Cooler Boost 5 which will automatically adjust the speed of the 2 integrated “Whrilwind Blade” fans and 7 heat pipes via 4 air outlets. The sound is entrusted to two XL speakers and Nahimic 3 technology for more immersion.
The screen is there too to serve the comfort of play. If its borders are quite thick, a little dated chassis requires, it sports high-end specifications: IPS panel with a refresh rate of 144 Hz (7 ms). Intensive players will certainly appreciate the extra 24 frames per second compared to the more widely crossed 120Hz. Especially since viewing angles are excellent thanks to the IPS panel that emphasize it is usually not noticed for its liveliness. The Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) is the most suitable for gamers and allows you to make the most of your high definition content while the matte treatment prevents ambient light from reflecting on the screen, improving game comfort (especially during dark scenes).
Connectivity is distributed on each side of the chassis and also ensures the comfort of the players. There is an SD card reader, two video outputs (HDMI 1.4, mini-DisplayPort) and four USB ports including two USB 3.2 Gen1, a USB 3.2 Gen2 and a USB 3.2 Type-C (Gen2) . You also enjoy the latest generation of the Bluetooth 5.0 chip, WiFi 802.11 AC and Gigabit Ethernet with BigFoot Gamer Killer E2500 technology to give priority to games.
Performance, autonomy of the MSI GE63 9SE-814FR
The key parameter in this configuration is at the graphic part, here entrusted to the GeForce RTX 2060 Turing Ray-Tracing latest generation (2019). This new version reserves a visible increase in power compared to GTX 10 Pascal. Thus, the RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 installed here should exceed the capabilities of a GeForce GTX 1070 in most scenarios as demonstrated by our test dedicated to the MSI GL63 8SE . Expert players will be able to launch the most recent titles and greedy Ultra with 60 FPS minimum.
Then comes the very heart of this PC and its latest generation processor Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee Lake Refresh . The gain over the previous generation is not necessarily significant performance issue but it still allows to see large resources in multi-core tasks in the service of versatility. Indeed, its 6 cores (12 logics multi-threading) are valuable when you work on greedy applications type 3D modeling, parallelization, video editing … Especially since the RAM is present in quantity. With 16 GB of RAM , you have a great multitasking scope to see the coming years serenely.
Storage is another strength in this MSI GE63 9SE-814FR since it is entrusted to a 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD that will significantly strengthen the overall responsiveness of the system on a daily basis. Overall quieter, more robust, and more energy efficient than a mechanical drive, it allows Windows to achieve a remarkable level of fluidity with short load times and latency-free operation. What’s more, its capacity is not ridiculous and can host a good part of your toy library even if some will not find it enough.
Finally, with 3 to 4 hours of autonomy in current use (Web browsing via Wifi), it is not intended to go away for a long time from a power outlet.
