Chassis, Connectivity, Screen MSI GF63 9SC-474
It sports a gamer design which he takes the codes with its brushed black aluminum finish and its touches of red. Its SHIFT function allows you to switch between 3 operating modes (Sport, Comfort and Eco).
This computer gamer has a good connection composed of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to connect easily to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Thanks to its key backlight system, the chiclet keyboard can be better distinguished in a dim atmosphere. But it lacks a keypad while it is a standard in 15 inches which may discourage some.
IPS, the screen offers more accurate colorimetry than average and comfortable viewing angles, both vertically and horizontally. Its Full HD definition makes it accurate and suitable for displaying High Definition content and especially videos in its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment than a glossy slab.
Performance, autonomy of the MSI GF63 9SC-474
The MSI GF63 9SC-474 targets those looking for a versatile 15-inch high-performance, gaming-oriented notebook with newer and nomadic components.
It has the dedicated card GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA Turing here in edition Max-Q able to take many games with concessions under the most demanding games in graphics resources to get good playability.
In practice, the GeForce GTX 1650 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus favors the maximum Intel UHD 630 processor integrated solution despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy. The GeForce GTX 1650 is therefore enabled by Optimus to perform graphic processing too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. Both solutions allow of course to watch photos and videos.
Storage is up. Hybrid, it consists of a hard drive of 1000 GB to provide a large capacity and a 256 GB SSD to bring responsiveness, essential parameter in games.
The SSD is intended to house the OS and the main games / software, the rest taking place on the hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, daily operation is significantly smoother and more responsive than with a hard disk, as well as start / stop launches of software / games much faster. We also arrive for example faster on the cards of online games.
At the heart of this computer gamer hold 8 GB of RAM coupled with a Quad Core processor i5-9300H Coffee Lake Refresh. This duo shoulder well the GTX 1650 in games and delivers overall performance to fill a maximum of users.
This results in faster processing times than with 4 GB DDR4 and a low-power quad core processor and 4 GB DDR4 under the demanding workload of RAM and CPU resources using multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing. which will delight the creative ones.
Finally autonomy, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use and around 5:30 surfing the Internet via Wi-Fi. A good score for a computer gamer whose transport is clearly facilitated by finesse and weight less than 2 Kg. But this has a setback: expect this PC to heat up and be noisy when it is heavily used (eg games).
