Designed to play and create, the MSI GF75 10UEK-022FR Thin is a rather lightweight designer-oriented gaming laptop with 144Hz frequency of the 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen for improved fluidity. This computer can run recent games thanks to its high-end NVIDIA Ampere ray tracing GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q graphics card which also speeds up processing like the Hexa Core i7 Comet Lake-H processor and the right amount of RAM. Fast on-board SSD storage boosts responsiveness (but capacity is limited). This laptop PC designed for gaming and creation also has an RGB backlit chiclet keyboard as well as connectivity with Wi-Fi ax and USB-C, but without Thunderbolt 3.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI GF75 10UEK-022FR Thin
It has a sober and elegant look for a gaming laptop PC which it nevertheless adopts the codes with its black brushed aluminum frame with touches of red.
Relatively thin and light, this computer has Cooler Boost 5 technology to cool it using 2 fans, 7 heat pipes and air vents.
The connectivity built into this designer-oriented gaming laptop PC is good, including USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect wirelessly, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it. Too bad, however, that the Thunderbolt 3 is absent.
The chiclet keyboard has been designed with the help of SteelSeries to be adapted to the habits of gamers. We can obviously backlit, here by an RGB system per key, which is appreciable to distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
Gamers will appreciate that the fluidity is enhanced in games thanks to the screen because it adopts a refresh rate of 144Hz higher than the standard 60Hz. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also displays significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles as well as more faithful than average colorimetry. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, battery life of the MSI GF75 10UEK-022FR Thin
The MSI GF75 10UEK-022FR Thin is for those looking for a versatile, large-format laptop that performs well in gaming and creation.
Recent games can run on this gaming laptop PC because it has the GeForce RTX 3060 dedicated graphics card in Max-Q edition , NVIDIA Ampere dedicated high-end graphics card with ray tracing.
Depending on the tasks performed, NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor.
Optimus uses the Intel UHD 630 as much as possible despite its very modest features because it is energy efficient and thus promotes battery life. In practice, the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q is activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. You can of course watch photos and video with one or other of these graphics solutions.
In any case, the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q may also be of interest to creatives because it speeds up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
Creators as well as gamers and more generally demanding users will be interested in the overall power delivered by this portable PC designed to play and create.
Because it is built around an Intel HM470 chipset, a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor and 16 GB of RAM.
This core supports the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q well in gaming. It also guarantees much faster processing than a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, particularly in areas that require CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
The processing is even more accelerated by the SSD storage because it is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent.
In fact, the SSD brings a much better fluidity and responsiveness in everyday life, including in games and under treatment. This implies, for example, a faster arrival on the cards of online games or even faster games / software launches, processing and starts / stops.
Here we are dealing with a single SSD of 512 GB, capacity similar to the standard of hard disks. This may be too fair for some. But in this case, we can add a second SSD or a hard drive to this PC via the free 2.5 inch slot.
You can also use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally on the battery life side, bet on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this designer-oriented gaming laptop rather thin and light for a large 17-inch, large format particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary MSI use (ex: at home) .
However, you have to keep in mind that this laptop is noisy and heats up in the event of heavy loads (eg: games, treatments).
