Nomadic gaming laptop PC with its 7 hour battery life, the creator- oriented MSI GF63 10SCXR-1287FR Thin is a thin and light black Ultrabook with 15 inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen with frequency of 144Hz which improves fluidity in games. Capable of running many games thanks to its NVIDIA Turing GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics card which also accelerates multimedia processing, it provides solid performance thanks to its Quad Core i5 Intel Comet Lake-H processor and its fast SSD storage which boosts its reactivity. It benefits from a backlit chiclet keyboard (however without a numeric keypad) but also a Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connection.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI GF63 10SCXR-1287FR Thin
It takes up the gamer codes in terms of design while adopting a relatively elegant and discreet look for this type of PC with its thin and light black aluminum frame with angular lines and touches of red.
This Ultrabook gamer is cooled by Cooler Boost 3 technology which uses fans and heat pipes to do this. It also has the SHIFT function to switch between 3 operating modes (Sport, Comfort and Eco) but also Cooler Boost 3 technology to cool it using fans and heat pipes.
This gaming laptop PC is also equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.1 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output (positioned at the rear) for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is useful for distinguishing its keys in the dark.
However no numeric keypad on the right while it is a standard in 15 inches. Those who often enter numbers may deplore this.
In any case, the screen will be of interest to players because it improves fluidity in games thanks to its frequency of 144Hz higher than the 60Hz standard. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen offers more faithful than average colorimetry as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format.
Performance, battery life of the MSI GF63 10SCXR-1287FR Thin
The MSI GF63 10SCXR-1287FR Thin is aimed at those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop PC that performs well and is gaming oriented and yet portable.
Indeed in terms of battery life, this Ultrabook prides itself on being able to last about 7 hours on battery in light use. It is all the more appreciable that thanks to its finesse and lightness, this gaming laptop PC is easy to carry.
However, it delivers solid general performance able to satisfy a maximum of users because it is based on an Intel HM470 chipset, 8 GB of RAM and a Quad Core i5-10300H Comet Lake-H processor.
The latter notably guarantees much faster processing than a low-power Quad Core processor, particularly in areas that are greedy in processor resources using multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
In addition, processing is accelerated by the dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q edition onboard graphics card , using software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
In addition to the creators, the GeForce GTX 1650 will be of interest to players since it can run many games as long as we agree to settings under the opuses greedy in graphic resources in order to obtain good gameplay.
Whether with the GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q or the Intel UHD 630 graphics part integrated into the processor, you can obviously watch photos and videos. Modest, the Intel UHD 630 is privileged as much as possible by the onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology because it consumes little energy which favors battery life.
Optimus therefore activates the GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q in practice when the performance of the Intel UHD 630 is insufficient to perform the tasks requested, for example to play.
Regarding storage, MSI here chooses an SSD. It has the advantage of speeding up processing, starting / stopping but also game / software launches compared to a hard disk, or even ensuring a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and silent.
With its 512 GB, the onboard SSD offers a capacity similar to the standard of hard disks.
If you want more space, you can add a second SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5-inch slot. We also have of course the possibility of relying on an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, it should be mentioned that due to the lightness and finesse of this gaming laptop, it is noisy and heats up when it is strongly pushed (eg games, treatments).
