With its MSI GL62MVR 7RFX -1240, the manufacturer still assumes gamers with dominant black and red and a structured chassis but makes an effort to open it to other users in search of sobriety and versatility. This includes the weight of the case that reaches a reasonable 2.2 kg, what facilitate its transport during your few trips. In addition, the entire polycarbonate frame gets rid of any textural effect or special finish with red details that are limited to the cover logo and a line that runs to the back. It\’s quite neutral for MSI. Note the appearance of a backlight red keyboard called Silver Lining Printing that shows over the entire height of the key (contours) to fully enjoy your computer in a dark atmosphere.
The PC also comes with valuable MSI applications. The SteelSeries Keyboard will provide a responsive, anti-ghosting capture experience – allowing you to press a multitude of keys at the same time without causing any mis-interpretation – and with its optimized ZSQD zone. Opposite, the MatrixDisplay system will extend the display to two external displays and the optimized cooling of Cooler Boost 4 (6 heatpipes) will automatically adjust the speed of the 2 integrated fans.
Designed for the game, the PC is supported by a high-end graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1060. In its configuration with 6 GB GDDR5, it does credit to all titles in the market in Full HD with details High / Ultra and can compete with 4K, provided you settle for low-scoring titles. Virtual reality is also in its strings, attests its reference GL62M “VR”.
In the absence of the NVIDIA G-Sync, NVIDIA Optimus technology will be able to manage the operation of both graphics solutions and focus on the processor-integrated HD 630 chip when common use does not require the performance of the dedicated card. This preserves autonomy in reasonable measures. Here, it will not be necessary to rely on more than 5 hours in Web browsing via Wifi, it is in average.
Its heart is classic enough for its category and allows versatile use . It is supported by a Kaby Lake i5 Quad Core i5 and 8 GB of RAM . This duo is not the best equipped for the most demanding missions (3D modeling, advanced video editing) but can very well meet more common needs (Web browsing, Office suite, video playback) or missions exploiting multi-core architecture and GPU acceleration: graphics processing, photo editing, lightweight editing. Opposite, the RAM will leave a comfortable amplitude to multitask and serve fluidity at the time of the game.
Storage is there to promote system responsiveness without compromising on capacity. Indeed, the 256 GB dedicated SSD will be able to host the operating system and all programs and games and thus contribute to a more responsive execution, shortened loading times and a generally brighter environment. The hard drive of 1000 GB in addition is there to allow you to archive all of your toy library.
On the display side, the balance sheet is a little less enthusiastic because of the support of the TN panel which limits the viewing angles and the colorimetric richness. However, its Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) definition offers a high display density, ideal for making the most of all the games of the moment, while the matte treatment will limit the inconvenience associated with high ambient light.
As is often the case with MSI, connectivity is generous and serves the players. There is a card reader, two video outputs (HDMI 1.4, mini-DisplayPort), two independent microphone and headphone ports and four USB ports including two USB 3.0 and a USB 3.1 Type-C (Gen1). You also benefit from the latest generation of 802.11 AC and Bluetooth 4.2 Wi-Fi chips and Gigabit Ethernet with Gamer Killer E2400 technology to prioritize gaming and prevent lag.
