Hey, thanks for the review. But does GE63 has graphic card lower than 1060? cz RM7,199 is way out of my budget, im actually looking at around RM6k for a laptop. smile.gif
ALeUNe already posted above you can get the same spec on Acer Helios FTW at only 31% cheaper than the MSI GE63VR

http://www.11street.my/productdetail/acer-...4-256g-55680152

Not to forget the Acer Helios in the link above came with 256GB SSD instead of only 128GB on the MSI GE63VR

Hi everyone! Today I will be doing a light review on the new MSI GE63VR - 7RE Raider is a 15.6-inch gaming notebook that weighs about 2.4 kg (~5.3 lbs). This model currently available for RM7,199 (same price with my purchase), with the twin red racing stripes on the chassis tell you everything from stylish to performance.

The device is powered by a quad-core Intel Core i7-7700HQ accompanied by 8 GB of DDR4 RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of dedicated VRAM. Its special feature is a 120-Hz 3MS TN screen . Windows 10 Home is pre-installed on the device, which is equipped with a 128-GB NVMe SSD and a 1-TB HDD (7200rpm). Of course, it still features a SteelSeries keyboard, with individual key back-lighting instead of the successor's zoned back-lighting. MSI has also installed the usual Gamer software package including Dragon Center, SteelSeries Engine and MSI True Color etc.

This model also have a little gimmick to ease your frustration, where the USB slot will always glow in red for user to find the USB slot easily, and an easy way to spot your configuration key while pressing FN key.

Fan Performance and Design

the GE63/GE73VR models comes with dual Whirlwind Blade fans and 7 heat pipes become Cooler Boost 5 and 4 exhaust way which able to keep the laptop at a very optimal temperature.

I tested with 3D Mark 11 Benchmark  (Both extreme and performance setting), and Final Fantasy 14 Online Benchmark (Max setting). The below are the scores:

Overall, the score were high and the speed were fast, and the temperature is at satisfactory area where around 75'c during the benchmark. Will do this much as for now, If i have the time I will try and do more regarding this model.

P.S. The sound system of this GE63VR is great!

i would assume that you refer to Predator Helios 300... well, spec of Helios compare to this machine is little bit different.

Helios only have 60hz IPS panel, 1TB 5400rpm, but equip with 256GB NVMe... for ram is same 8GB only.

Keyboard not steelseries and not RGB keyboard. Dissipation of heat for Helios not really good as compare to this machine...

conclusion, money talk and prevail....

The cheaper it is the less feature it gives you =w=, but MSI Raider model is not entirely expensive, still reasonable

Hey, it's not any apps that will help to improve the performances. Basically it's the specs like (Graphic card, cooling system, monitor etc..) that improves the laptop performance. Same goes to all the laptops. biggrin.gif

Some may say the APP or feature is not going to affect the performance but more and more PC company is building in APP to help you easily monitor/ change setting/ fan speed/ overclock well i mean thats feature yes but being able to adjust your PC by just few clicks is absolutely a plus point on considering buying new PC nowadays right?

I owned this laptop overall the design and audio is excellent,but the performance on the graphic card seems underperforming compare to others laptop with same spec, im barely getting 100fps on dota 2 best looking setting with vsync off, while other laptop with the same gtx 1060 getting around 130fps+ , idk if mine comes with faulty or anything,related to 120hz panel..but what do u expect ofcoz u want exact fps as the other laptop right.. also theres is microstuttering,which im not really sure why..
