Gaming and creation oriented gaming laptop, the MSI GF75 10UEK-024FR Thin benefits from an NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q high-end ray tracing graphics card capable of running recent games and speeding up multimedia processing. Like the good amount of 16GB RAM and Intel Hexa Core i7 Comet Lake-H processor. Equipped with a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen whose frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity in games, this laptop designed to play and create sees its responsiveness enhanced by its fast SSD storage (however limited capacity). In addition, this laptop PC intended for gamers and creators has a backlit RGB chiclet keyboard but also a connection with Wi-Fi ax and USB-C.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI GF75 10UEK-024FR Thin
With its black brushed aluminum design with touches of red, it has a gamer look and yet relatively elegant and discreet.
It is cooled by Cooler Boost 5 technology using 2 fans, 7 heat pipes and air vents.
This designer-oriented gaming laptop PC has good connectivity with its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its USB-C without forgetting its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
An RGB backlighting system per key is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is very practical for distinguishing it in a dimly lit environment. SteelSeries participated in the design of the keyboard to be adapted to the habits of the gamers.
Thanks to its 144Hz refresh rate, the screen improves fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. The screen is well suited to High Definition content such as videos by its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. It also displays colors more faithful than the average as well as vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) while being more restful for the eyes over a long period.
Performance, battery life of the MSI GF75 10UEK-024FR Thin
The MSI GF75 10UEK-024FR Thin targets those who want to acquire a versatile 17-inch laptop PC that performs well in terms of gaming and creation.
Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor and 16 GB of RAM, this gaming laptop PC delivers global power capable of satisfying demanding users, such as gamers and gamers. creators.
The latter will particularly appreciate obtaining much faster processing than with a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas that are greedy in CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of multicore, such as in video editing, 3D rendering. or photo editing.
Processing is accelerated here by the dedicated GeForce RTX 3060 on- board graphics card , using software that uses GPU computing power, for example in Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas.
In practice, the high-end GeForce RTX 3060 NVIDIA Ampere with ray tracing, here in Max-Q edition , is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor despite its very modest features because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes battery life. The GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. Viewing photos and videos and of course possible with one or the other.
In games, under treatment and more generally on a daily basis, responsiveness is enhanced by onboard SSD storage providing better fluidity than a hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we take advantage of much faster processing than with a hard drive, as well as games / software launches and starts / stops, as well as a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent. Here the capacity of the SSD is however limited to 512 GB, which corresponds to the standard of hard disks.
However, if more space is needed, a slot is free to add a second SSD or a hard drive. You can of course also rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to take advantage of fast transfers.
Finally with regard to the battery life of this gaming laptop whose transport is facilitated for a powerful 17-inch because of its controlled weight as well as its thickness, expect about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
But we must be aware of the fact that this computer designed to play and create is noisy and heats up when it is heavily used (eg games, processing).
