Chassis, Connectivity, Screen MSI GP65 9SD-065
It sports an original and relatively sober and elegant gamer design with its black shell, touches of red and silver interior.
The technology Cooler Boost 5 is responsible for its cooling, combining 2 fans with 7 heat pipes. The heat released is evacuated through the air vents on the sides, at the back and below.
Matrix Display allows it to connect up to 2 external screens.
This compact gamer computer has good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, mini-DisplayPort and HDMI video outputs convenient for connecting easily to a TV for example, Ethernet and audio ports or 3 USB 3.0 / .2 (compatible USB 2.0) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if connected to USB 3.0 devices.
We can of course backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard, here thanks to a RGB system by key which is very convenient to discern correctly in the dim light.
IPS, the screen offers a more accurate colorimetry than average with comfortable viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Accurate with its full HD definition, it is well suited to display High Definition content such as videos in its 16 / 9th format. As it is anti-reflective treatment, the screen also provides better visibility than a bright tile in bright environment (ex: outdoor).
Performance, autonomy of the MSI GP65 9SD-065
The MSI GP65 9SD-065 targets those who are looking for a versatile laptop 15-inch performance, especially in games.
Equipped with the dedicated NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1660 Ti card , it is able to support the user’s favorite games.
In practice, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by embedded NVIDIA Optimus technology, according to the tasks performed.
Optimus favors the maximum Intel UHD 630 processor-integrated solution despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. With one or the other, we can obviously look at photos and videos.
This computer is very responsive in games and more generally in everyday life thanks to its SSD storage. As a reminder, an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being less energy, more robust and quiet.
As a result, we get a significantly smoother operation with an SSD than with a hard disk but also starts / stops and launches games / applications much faster. We can then arrive for example faster on the cards online games.
In addition here, we have a SSD that rivals the hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB. And if that’s not enough, MSI offers a second slot M.2 to add another SSD.
Built around an Intel HM370 chipset, a Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee Lake Refresh processor and 16GB of RAM, the heart of this computer gamer well sleeps the GTX 1660 Ti in games. It delivers a global power capable of satisfying the most demanding users, especially the creative ones.
Indeed, thanks to this PC, we get much faster processing than with a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, especially in the CPU and RAM resource intensive areas taking advantage of multicore as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing . In games however, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to a Quad Core.
Moreover, in games and more generally when it is pushed hard, it is expected that this computer gamer warms up and is heard. Side autonomy pending more concrete tests, plan about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this compact PC to the weight content but not the finest.
