Design

The MSI laptop certainly has the look and feel of a gaming laptop. Its smooth and glossy body is made up of aluminum in a combination of red and black, and it carries the MSI G series dragon logo on its rear. It weighs about 2.5 kg. The 1920 x 1080 display, like all gaming laptops, has an anti-glare layer. It still produces vibrant colors when the brightness is increased to maximum. The keyboard is not backlit, but it is a gaming keyboard which is fully customizable. The laptop doesn’t have the feature of a touchscreen, and the touchpad also has mouse buttons.

 


Performance & Other Features

The 6th generation Intel processor and NVIDIA graphics card make the perfect combination. The latest games such as Grand Theft Auto 5 can easily be played on frame rates of 50 FPS on a 1920 x 1080 screen. The sound system of this machine has been developed by Nahimic. The system is equipped with a subwoofer which can produce distortion-less sounds. The anti-glare coating can deflect shadows on the screen and you can easily view the screen from up to six feet away.

The laptop also supports the Mini DisplayPort technology that supports 4K output up to 2 external monitors. It provides you ease in connecting two monitors to play a game, chat with your friends, and surf the web simultaneously. It also supports all kinds of networking, which is why it is equipped with an Ethernet port. It is loaded with the latest USB 3.0 ports which are joined by the graphics port on the left side of the laptop. 12GB RAM is efficient enough for multithreading and can even be upgraded to a maximum of 32GB. The SSD is also upgrade-able; you can optimize the performance of your laptop as it supports hybrid memory. It has plenty of space to store images, games, and other data as it is equipped with a 1TB HDD.
