Chassis, connectors, screen MSI GE65 9SF-080FR Raider
It’s a gamer design that he sports with his finitin black brushed metal and touches of red.
To cool it down, MSI unveils Cooler Boost 5 technology that combines 2 Whirlwind Blade fans with 7 heat pipes and air vents on the back, left and bottom. With Matrix Display technology, it can display content on its screen and up to 2 external screens as a bonus.
This computer gamer is well provided in terms of connectivity with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its modules Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax (more powerful than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect wirelessly, its outputs Convenient HDMI video and mini DisplayPort for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, audio and Ethernet ports, or 3 USB 3.0 / .2 (red backlighting) compatible with USB 2.0 for transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
To give network priority to online games, Killer Double Shot Pro technology with Killer Shield is also present.
To seduce the players, how often at MSI the keyboard chiclet was developed using SteelSeries to adapt to their habits. Its RGB touch backlight system makes it easy to discern in the dim light.
The screen differs markedly from the vast majority of laptops gamer on the market by its frequency of 240Hz which enhances the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz (and while the maximum is often 144Hz).
With its 100% sRGB and IPS features, the screen will appeal to the creative as well as the players because the color rendering is more faithful than the average horizontal and vertical viewing angles are important. Accurate with its Full HD definition, the screen is suitable for displaying high definition content and especially videos in its 16 / 9th format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, it also provides better visibility than a glossy tile in a bright environment and is more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, autonomy of the MSI GE65 9SF-080FR Raider
The MSI GE65 9SF-080FR Raider can appeal to those with a comfortable budget and intend to invest in a versatile 17-inch performance-oriented and creative-oriented notebook PC.
With its high-end dedicated GeForce RTX 2070 NVIDIA Turing ray tracing board, it is able to run the user’s favorite games at a good level of detail.
Depending on the tasks performed, embedded NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 2070 and the Intel UHD 630 integrated into the processor.
Optimus requests maximum the Intel UHD 630 despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2070 is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphic processing considered too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. Both solutions allow of course to look at photos and videos.
SSD storage will seduce more than one because it enhances responsiveness in games and more generally in everyday life. Compared to a hard drive, an SSD is indeed much faster while being more energy efficient, more robust and quiet.
In addition here, and it is still too rare and deserves to be underlined, we have a SSD with a significant capacity of 1 TB that rivals hard disks!
And if that’s not enough, most do-it-yourselfers have the option of adding a second SSD or hard drive to the 2.5-inch free slot.
Consisting of a good amount of 16 GB of RAM and a Coffee Lake Refresh processor Hexa Core i7-9750H, the heart of this computer shoulder well the RTX 2070 in games. Demanding users will be seduced by the overall power they deliver, whether they are players or creative. They will be happy to get much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor in the areas of CPU and RAM that take advantage of multicore, such as video editing, phot editing, or 3D rendering. The contribution of the Hexa Core is however variable in games compared to a Quad Core.
Finally, in terms of autonomy, plan about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer gamer that heats and is heard when it is highly stressed (eg games).
