Relatively light, the designer- oriented MSI GF75 10UEK-042FR Thin gaming laptop PC offers a large storage capacity of 1.2 TB with fast SSD which enhances its responsiveness. Equipped with a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen whose frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity in games, it is able to support recent games thanks to its high-end graphics card GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q NVIDIA Ampere ray tracing which also speeds up processing just like the Hexa Core i7 Comet Lake-H processor and the right amount of RAM. This laptop designed to play and create also benefits from a backlit RGB chiclet keyboard and Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connectivity, but not Thunderbolt 3.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI GF75 10UEK-042FR Thin
With its relatively thin and light black brushed aluminum frame with touches of red, it takes up the gamer codes while adopting a rather elegant and discreet look for this type of PC.
It is cooled by Cooler Boost 5 technology combining 2 fans, 7 heat pipes and ventilation grilles.
This designer-oriented gaming laptop PC has a good connection made up of Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, with a video output Practical HDMI for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 peripherals. There is no Thunderbolt 3, however, which will disappoint some.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, here of the RGB type per key, which is practical for distinguishing the keys in a dimly lit environment.
The design of the keyboard comes from a collaboration with SteelSeries so that it is adapted to the habits of the gamers.
To seduce the latter, the screen is adorned with a frequency of 144Hz which reinforces the fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. In addition, it displays colors more faithful than the average as well as large vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. The screen is also very well suited to High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, 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.
Performance, battery life of the MSI GF75 10UEK-042FR Thin
The MSI GF75 10UEK-042FR Thin may be of interest to those who want to acquire a versatile 17-inch laptop that performs in gaming and creation and offers high storage space.
Hybrid, the storage consists of a 256 GB SSD designed to house the system as well as the main software, and a hard drive with a comfortable capacity of 1000 GB able to accommodate multiple files as a bonus. and software.
That is a total of 1.2 TB higher than the average, with an SSD guaranteeing a much more responsive and fluid operation than a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we take advantage, for example, of games / software launches, processing and starting / stopping much faster or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
This is good because as this relatively thin and light gaming laptop PC embeds the dedicated high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card with ray tracing, here in Max-Q edition , it is capable of running recent games.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, as needed.
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.
In this regard, expect around 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. With one or the other, we can obviously watch photos and videos.
As a bonus, thanks to the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q, processing is accelerated under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which will be of interest to creators.
Gamers and gamers alike will be delighted with the overall power provided by this laptop designed to play and create. It is indeed based on an Intel HM470 chipset, 16 GB of RAM as well as a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor, a heart that supports the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q well in games.
However, it should be noted that in games, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to a Quad Core.
In any case, this heart will delight the creators because it guarantees much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor. We particularly feel the difference in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources using multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
Finally, the large format of this laptop PC is particularly comfortable for use MSI GF75 10UEK mostly sedentary (eg at home). In addition, this computer is relatively thin and light for a 17 inch.
However, this involves noise and heating when it is strongly pushed (eg: games, treatments).
