Creator-oriented gaming laptop , the MSI GF75 10UEK-031FR Thinbenefits from a hybrid storage of a large capacity of 1.2 TB above average with fast SSD which reinforces its responsiveness. This computer designed to play and create takes advantage of a 17-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen with frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity in games but also of a high-end NVIDIA Ampere graphics card GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q ray tracing capable of run recent games but also speed up processing as well as the Intel Hexa Core i7 Comet Lake-H processor and the right amount of 16 GB RAM. Relatively light, this laptop for gamers and creatives also benefits from a keyboard RGB backlit chiclet as well as connectivity with Wi-Fi ax and USB-C, but no Thunderbolt.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI GF75 10UEK-031FR Thin
It sports a relatively sober and elegant design for a gamer laptop PC which it nevertheless takes up the codes with its brushed black aluminum frame with angular lines and touches of red. This computer lifts slightly forward when opened.
Cooler Boost 5 technology is responsible for cooling this designer-oriented gaming laptop PC via 2 fans, 7 heat pipes and air vents.
The integrated connectivity is good, made up of Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect wirelessly, an HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit, here via a per-key RGB system, which is handy for correctly discerning it in the dark.
Its design has received input from SteelSeries so that it can be adapted to the habits of gamers.
They will appreciate that the screen enhances fluidity in games thanks to its frequency of 144Hz higher than the 60Hz standard. As it adopts IPS technology, the screen has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles and reproduces colors more faithfully than average. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use. With its Full HD and 16: 9 characteristics, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos.
Performance, autonomy of the MSI GF75 10UEK-031FR Thin
The MSI GF75 10UEK-031FR Thin targets those looking to equip themselves with a versatile large format laptop PC with a high performance focus on gaming and creation.
Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, it stands out for its hybrid storage offering a total capacity of 1.2 TB higher than the average, enough to install and store multiple files, games and software.
It consists of a 256 GB SSD designed to accommodate the system as well as the main games / software, the rest being housed on the comfortable 1000 GB hard drive.
The SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive in games, under processing and more generally on a daily basis.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we get faster on the cards of online games than with a hard drive and we take advantage of games / software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster.
The SSD therefore supports the dedicated graphics card embedded in games, the high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3060 with ray tracing, here in Max-Q edition .
Recent games can run on this laptop PC thanks to the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q which also accelerates processing under software relying on GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
Depending on the tasks requested, the on-board 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 benefits because it consumes little energy and thus promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. With one or the other, we can obviously watch photos and videos.
The Intel UHD 630 is integrated into the processor, a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H here associated with 16 GB of RAM. This core delivers global power capable of satisfying demanding users, including gamers and creators.
The former should keep in mind that currently in games, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to a Quad Core.
The latter will appreciate in any case to obtain much faster processing than with a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4. We particularly feel the difference in work requiring CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
Finally on the autonomy side, bet on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this relatively light computer for a large format gaming laptop which is certainly not the most easily transportable at the base but is particularly comfortable for a predominantly sedentary use (eg home).
In addition, this computer designed to play and create is noisy and heats up when pushed strongly (eg games, treatments).
