MSI GS63VR series is still remaining as one of the thinnest gaming laptop in the market right now. The original version is actually did not performance so well during its launch since it has some problems on the fan noise and temperature level. But, that problem does not stop them to improve it more and better. Now, the 2017 version is come out with the new improvement on the performance and thinnest and slickest design. It surely makes so many people want to get closely into it.
GS63VR is the truly desktop replacement for playing games with the specifications it brings. It packs with NVIDIA Max-Q GTX 1070 in this 4.2 pounds machine. You would be surprised on could this small device results such a great power. The 1080p display allows you to do ever gaming without any issue and waiting you to plug the HTC Vive or the Oculus Rift. I guess we should better see it closely, so you are be able to make the consideration for it.
That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to talk about it further on this article and see how it through the test. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.
The design is truly beauty with its darker look. It looks very badass with the grey finishing at the bottom. The lid itself is covered with aluminum material that was finished with black touch. The dragon emblem on the center of its lid is made glossy and I heard there are so many people love it including me. The improvement is little here, but the basic design is already good and has not much complain.
When you open the lid, it would reveal the inside interior that full with red chrome touchpad and full size keyboard. The red glowing keyboard really gives the great impression to the overall design. Along the right and left sides of its body, you are going to find some useful ports. On the right side, there are HDMI, display port, USB 2.0 port which is not common in the 2017, and a single Thunderbolt port. On the left side, there are three USB 3.0 ports, audio jack, Ethernet port, and card reader slot.
The dimension for the body is measured at 14.9 x 9.8 x 0.7 inches and its just only little buggier and heavier than Razer Blade. But, if we compare with ROG Zephyrus or Alienware 15, it’s still winning in term of weight and the thickness.back to menu ↑
Display And Keyboard
The 1920 x 1080p display gives a breathtaking experience. The color is impressive without any detail is losing. The color is accurate and I did not found it too bright on many tests. The color reproduction itself was able to result of 166 percent of gamut color, so you should not be worry on display quality since most laptop only able to get around 100 percent of color.
As for keyboard, everything is nice and I did not any big complaint. The keys are bouncy and firm with great travel distant between of them. The distant travel is only at 1.6 mm and means we only need to give the 71 grams of punctuation. The LED on the keyboard is also customizable to our needs. Just make sure to use of Macro Editor for easiest way to adjust it.

Performance And Temperature
The performance is actually something that we should not ask again since you probably know that GTX 1070 is high end test. But, I guess you still want to hear of my test. I have tested some of AAA games including of Rise of the Tomb Raider, GTA 5, and Hitman. On the Tomb Raider I got 48 FPS in very high setting all the time. I played some of levels and the framerate is so stable. The same result is also happened with Hitman and GTA 5 where both of them deliver of 88 FPS and 65 FPS.
The heat is something that makes people worry since it annoys a lot when it gets heat. Luckily, the heat is not that bad although it feels quite hot. The touchpad reaches 80 degrees Fahrenheit when I play the game for 15 minutes while the center keyboard got 91 degrees. It does not feel annoying even after two hours.back to menu ↑
Those are information I know about it. MSI once again satisfy the gamers by providing top notch laptop to the market. Everything from the design and performance is great and the only thing that you should think again is the price. It costs for more than 1500 dollars, so think it again. There are more cheaper options available. At last, thank you for reading the article and see you again.
