That's the way it is in the US at least. I actually bought the GS73 thanks to your review. The GTX 1060 is a pretty hefty graphics card to fit into such a small package.  I’ll admit I was a little concerned with thermals at first.  But the graphics card really performs well and allows for some pretty excellent gaming performance.  The GPU has 6GB of VRAM, which should be enough for almost everyone out there. Oh yeah, the power button here, towards the front. We are the top Gaming gear provider. As for 4k, if you don't do a lot of consumption and primarily use it for gaming, I'd stick with the FHD screen. The MSI GS63VR 4k model lasted a mere 4 hours and 1 minute before shutting down. Intel Core i7-7700HQ 27. Its chassis is only 17.7 mm thin with a weight of 1.9 kg, it makes it one of the lightest and thinnest Could you help me finding this component? Thanks. I refuse to buy the LG screen, especially for the BS price we gotta pay here. currently the name is "Screens – GS73 (left) and GS73 (Right)", but that is obviously not the case, November 20, 2016 at 11:15 pm. I ran some benchmarks, which you can see below. Overall, the build quality is very solid.  I don’t think there are any weak spots that I would worry about on this one.  My first instinct after using the GS73VR was to look for sharp edges, but I really couldn’t find any.  No matter which way I hold it, it feels very sturdy and easy to handle.  MSI did a very good job with this one. MSI GS63 STEALTH PRO-016 15.6" FHD Gaming Laptop - Intel i7-7700HQ Kabylake, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD, GTX1050Ti, Win 10 + Gaming Bundle by Mobile Advance Currently unavailable. Also i went to bb since they had lowered the price on the laptop in my return window they gave me a 110 dollar gift card. Overall, the build quality is very solid. However I notice here in Aus they all list "IPS level 4k", isnt that tn? Odds are they are probably different though. Therefore, if this package improves your card reader's functionality in any way, hit the download button, and install it on your computer. One thing you can't do thoug his order parts outside your model number. In that case I would increase my score to 4 out of 5. It’s rather for backwards compatibility with older peripherals that might not work best with USB 3.0 . Weighing just under 4 pounds and being extremely powerful are the two most appealing features to this laptop. Hi Derek! Curious if this is normal on these laptops or if MSI just did a poor job repairing it. Yeah, now that I’ve finally gotten some reliable sources on the panels for the other models, I’ll update the post. Is the only disadvantage of the 4k screen the battery life and extra cost or are there a lot of scaling issues as well which makes it hard to see anything? I've purchased a couple of games to test it out. It wasn't anything more than 20 minutes though. However, the only criticism I have for the GS63VR keyboard is there is some mild keyboard flex on the left hand side.  I remember experiencing this with a GS60 as well and I think it was due to the lack of support where the battery sits.  It might be the same with this model and I’ll have to do a little trial and error to see if I can fix it.  Either way, it’s not horrible, but enough for me to notice. January 23, 2017 at 6:09 pm, Thanks…and i really truly apprecuate all your work and help,without your writeups i couldnt have found the courage to get into it, February 2, 2017 at 2:54 am. Apply upward pressure on the cables using a plastic tweezer. But nothing appears different in the specs! Also included is a 180 watt charger brick, which only measures 6.1”x3.0”x1.2” and weighs about 1.5 pounds.  This one is smaller than the 150 watt brick on my GS60, so I really appreciate that.

Moreover, updating the software's version might also increase the device's transfer speed, fix various problems, or add support for new features. November 6, 2016 at 5:29 pm. Do a little homework on panellook and see if they are cross compatible first. The MSI Stealth Pro GS63VR starts at $1549, with the 4K configurations going for around $2000. models say MSI GS73VR 7RF-296AU, with another same but 239au, then another 240au. Also make sure you constantly check with our website so that you don't miss a single new release. And Size!!! You probably have to consult the forums to determine that. Even though other OSes might be compatible as well, we do not recommend applying this release on platforms other than the ones specified. Andrei usually handles that page so I’ll ask him.

I heard that 1070 maxq is only marginally better than 1060 non maxq anyway. It's current on sale for 1499 at Best buy. It also really drives me crazy that they all put the same MSI marketing graphics, which basically have *ALL* the highlights of all models. If not, you would need to purchase one and I'm not sure how you would do that other than ordering one through MSI under a 3k GS60 S/N. If you want a powerful and ultra-compact 15-inch laptop, the MSI GS63VR must be on your list. The lid is pretty much just like all the other MSI laptops.  It’s a brushed Lithium-Magnesium alloy, which is black in color.  The lid is adorned with an MSI logo and their Gaming G series dragon logo.  Like all the others, it glows when the screen is on and there is no way to shut it off. Also, if you take the plunge, do yourself a favor and but a replacement bezel beforehand because it's really easy to break the little plastic clips. Just a heads up, there are a few laptops that can only fit 7 mm 2.5″ SSDs.  Keep in mind that the FHD version I reviewed is the -001 model from Best Buy, which has some significant differences between the other models. Just curious if these high temps are safe or should I look for an alternative way to keep it cooler while in game. September 30, 2016 at 6:32 am. I also recently purchased BF1 and have had a spike up to 87C while in game. I'm sure it's possible but I don't know if a new cable would be needed or not. It's still actually one of the most portable 17" laptops available. The screen options include a decent IPS FHD panel, a bad FHD TN panel for the BestBuy models (beware), or an expensive and very power hungry, 4K option. We currently know of the two variations for this model, with them being GS63 Stealth 8RE-033MX, and the GS63 Stealth 8RE-066MX. Im a bit confused about your reply here. Worth the sacrifice in my opinion? 9mm is the max thickness I believe. SSD: 256GB Toshiba M.2 NVME THNSN5256GPU7 Do you think due to having more space the 17" will run cooler than the 15? I read somewhere that the saying "ips level" was code for "great TN", they might have been off.  I haven’t gotten any definitive answers as to what model number has what panel yet. What's really frustrating is resellers tend to just transpose the specs they get from MSI, which sometimes have errors. The MSI Stealth Pro GS63VR is available at multiple retailers.  Amazon has many units in stock ranging in prices from $1799 to $2000 at the time of this post, depending on the configuration. December 22, 2016 at 4:11 pm. October 1, 2016 at 9:06 am. Thanks for sharing and I'm glad it worked out. hello Derek, I recently purchased this laptop a couple of days ago. Luckily it can be turn down by disabling CPU C State. It's very vague and I don't like the smoke and mirrors, but most manufacturer's marketing teams these days advertise that way. HDD: 1TB Seagate ST1000LM035 Just got back from MSI returns after a battle to get the motherboard replaced. I start the clock when it’s unplugged and stop it when the unit performs a self- shutdown. And 4k or FullHD, do I will notice the diference? The build The last option is repasting.  Again, just getting to the CPU and GPU requires a complete disassembly, and if you have the skills to get to this point, you have the skills to repaste.  There are guides on how to do it.  I’m not sure the heat buildup on the underside will be lessened, but it will result in lower internal temps for the CPU and GPU directly. If you do a fresh install, all of MSI’s drivers are on their webpage.  You can also install the SteelSeries engine and the MSI dragon center.  The latter is optional but I’d say it’s pretty nice to have if you like having fan control.  There’s also an option to use “Eco mode” which stunts the CPU to 1.2Ghz.  If neither of these things interest you, you can probably live without the Dragon Center. I really hope the Kaby Lake quad core is better. *Load – playing No Man’s Sky for approximately 30 minutes on high FHD settings. Thanks! It’s an Elan brand trackpad, so your typical Elan drivers work well, but for the most part the drivers MSI uses as default fit all my needs.  I really like having three finger swipe forward and back for internet browsing, which this one includes.  The thing it lacks is three finger swipe upwards for app switching, which instead they map for starting slide shows.  Hopefully there’s a way to edit the registry to correct this, like there was in the past.  This is a really nice panel and I would highly recommend it over the LG model I received, if you care anything about color space. January 6, 2017 at 5:23 pm, I actually dont mind intel ive had no issues with any of the intel stuff wheras one of my previous laptops had a kiler wifi card which gave me a subpar experience with driver sand signal drops, October 1, 2016 at 3:27 am. looks like the super low contrast rate will be a deal breaker for me. Eh…Going to replace the HDD by a Sandisk Ultra II 960G. The between scaling and battery life, you’ll probably be happier in the long run. The 3x USB 3.0 ports are great if you have really low profile things plugged in over there.  Otherwise, you might as well consider only two of them accessible at the same time, as the ports are so close together that I often found it impossible to plug things into all three of them.  More than once I plugged something into the middle port and had to unplug it and move it to the end to get something else in the other end. The left side gets a secondary GPU exhaust.  This is good because the more ventilation for the GTX 1060, the better.  By the way, that GPU has two exhaust fans instead of the single fan it had with the GS60.  Also on the left there’s also a Kensington lock, an SD card slot, 3x USB 3.0 ports, a HiFi headphone jack and a microphone jack. I don't game much but 'might'. Now we have choices here of 1060 or 1070 MaxQ. ), March 16, 2018 at 8:04 am. I’ve put up together a step by step guide on how to access the internals on the MSI GS73 and MSI GS63, and you should check it out here if interested in upgrading any of the components. Once inside, you’ll notice that the HDD is pretty easy to get to and swap out.  The SSD and RAM are a different matter though, as they are actually on the opposite side of the motherboard, so in order to get to them you’ll have to disassemble the motherboard and flip it over.  If patiently taking things apart and following directions aren’t your thing, I highly recommend not doing this.  Otherwise, give yourself a lot of light, time and space before attempting it. I plan on getting the Core in the next month or so here, and would be happy to report back if I had the same success. September 22, 2016 at 3:06 pm, Hi I have the best buy version… Is exactly the same as reviewed.. LP156WF6-SPK1… Is not great but is enough…, January 5, 2017 at 5:00 pm, I bought this same version cause i didnt look into it thinking as the gs60 series that all panels were the same….sucks i didnt..i live abroad and bought it at the BB…is it possible for u to try and better the colors with you spyder pro and the settings in the display controlpanel and let us know what setting u get…i also have the GS60 and have been playing around with this and found that tweaking the color settings a bit made a huge improvement, never will be like the IPS Lg or GS60 Samsung but definitely much better…maybe some day ill go crazy and swap it for the better lg panel but for now this will do as i plan on upgrading to a 512gb nvme and 32gb ram, alreayd swapped out the hdd for a 1tb ssd, January 5, 2017 at 5:16 pm. February 2, 2017 at 2:22 pm, December 13, 2017 at 4:36 am. I'd like to share that news with everyone. There's no way to make it better. I've never held the 17" in RL, only the 15". For your last question, yes UV will help with heat. Your email address will not be published. I'm willing to play the panel lottery and wont get 4k 15". You would have to switch to FHD settings. Note that: in China, the warranty will be avoided by breaking the sticker, and this is for GS series ONLY, which is a bad news for me. He enjoys taking things apart, figuring out how they work and finding ways to make them better. December 5, 2016 at 10:39 am, It was pretty much the same steps as if it were a razer blade. There are a number of connectivity options on the laptop, which I really appreciate.  It would have been nice to have a USB 3.0 on the right instead of a 2.0, but if you’re like me, it’s going to be permanently be occupied by a USB mouse dongle anyway. its name is AKVA625, I've no ideia where to find it…, May 27, 2020 at 2:06 am. There's also the throttle stop forums, but that can be a little overwhelming. Hi Derek. As for the 3k screen, I really liked it on my old GS60. I did just recently get a "whitebook" model on eBay that had a higher quality LG screen in it. The MSI GS63VR FHD model lasted a decent 5 hours and 17 minutes before shutting down. Can i charge laptop using thunderbolt 3 for daily used. MSI GS63 7RD Stealth Laptop (Core i7 7th Gen/8 GB/1 TB/Windows 10/2 GB) laptop has a 15.6 Inches (39.62 cm) display for your daily needs. If so a yes the 1060 is a little lacking for 4k. For battery life concerns, MSI opted for Optimus over G-Sync on this one.  Probably a good choice with such a small battery.  The power indicator light doubles as an indicator to what GPU is operating: red for integrated graphics and orange for the GTX 1060.  Speaking of that light, it’s not on the power button for a change.  Instead, it’s subtly located in the center of the intake vents, above the keyboard.  This is a welcome change over the giant power button of the GS60, that switched from blue to orange. The balance of power and portability is really the most outstanding feature in this model.  During my use, I never frowned upon it’s handling or usability as a productivity machine.  Even for gaming, it’s a very capable model, granted you can deal with the heat. I'm assuming you're asking me and not Dave. After reading your 17" review im leaning towards the 4k. September 28, 2016 at 10:18 am. Unfortunately, the full hd panels look to be low quality as well. We test the MSI GS65 with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, a GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics card and a 144 Hz display. Welcome to the MSI Global official site. Chromebooks are snappy, easy to use, and inexpensive computers designed for everyday use and Internet-based activities such as browsing, email, text-editing, Youtube, Netflix, light gaming, and the likes. My wife had this issue and ended up having to switch the resolution to FHD to do work. I added a small bite at the beginning and some more coverage in the screen section. I was never able to improve it. Only the gs73vr but it's pretty much the same laptop besides the size. October 2, 2016 at 8:58 pm. IT’s a good thing to have both in front of you to make an informed decision. That would leave FHD panel-lottery or batt draining but good quality panel 4k.. what would you do? I can’t promise, the GL502VS is not yet available over here and I don’t know if I can get a sample. I'm not sure what the subpixel looks like up close but it's RGBW and there is no PWM. November 6, 2016 at 2:29 pm. Should I keep the 4K version or the FHD version (the FHD version got the LG panel). March 16, 2018 at 9:46 am. Pretty much all ssd are thin enough to fit. I was looking at cooling vents and noticed these heat sinks are bent or damaged. Screens – GS63(FHD) (left) and GS73(FHD) (Right).

If you care about windows language do not buy from China since it comes with a single language pack (Chinese) and I had to delete it and install my university windows (education version). I’m not even sure what Vivid 94% means because nothing on this panel is 94%, even on the actual spec sheet for the panel. Form Factor and 180. It seems though I can get the !7" 4K 1060 here cheapest of all the combo's !? Yes, but keep in mind that the programs you use for video editing might not scale well. Again, the amount of bloatware is pretty bad on this one.  If you decide to stick with it, you’ll get a lot of popups for registration, backing up your recovery partition, and worst of all, Norton.  I personally find it easier just to do a fresh install, especially since there’s no registry key needed and odds are Windows needs major updates anyways. TLDR: MSI GS65 8SF always using Nvidia graphics card, never switches back to integrated, therefore significantly reduced battery life. Hmm, that’s strange – I thought it was on there already. October 7, 2016 at 7:32 am. Another thing MSI has kept the same with the GS models is the trackpad.  From what I can tell, it’s the same trackpad as on the GS73VR, GS70 and GS60.  This is nice for me because I really got used to the trackpad on my old GS60 and eventually grew to like it a lot. Also if I follow your undervoltage thing i can keep heat off right? January 6, 2017 at 6:02 pm, Crap Derek im sorry was thinking bout a coworker!!!!!!! In general, the MSI Stealth Pro GS63VR is a great successor to the Ghost Pro GS60.  The design and build quality have both improved and the hardware inside is also a nice bundle to have in such a small package.  It’s good to see MSI trim off some of the footprint and bezels, without skimping on thermals and performance. Hey Derek So I went ahead and discarded the 3k Deal…I returned it as i just decided i didnt want to mess with that much stuff..On the bright side i did manage to find a brand new LTN156HL01 Screen for 67 dollars shipped, and guess what i bought it, and replace that awful screen with this, and its night and day..I had no issues taking the bezel off just had to go about it carefully and once i got one clip off the bottom i realized what direction we are supposed to slide them to so as not to break them andnow i have a great laptop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Overall, I’m very pleased with the design on the GS63VR.  MSI did a very good job making sure the edges are all flush and rounded on this one.  The only minor criticisms I can think of are the power cord placement and maybe moving one of the USB 3.0 ports to the other side.  These are really small complaints though. It's really for gaming and not worth losing the benefits of IPS. That takes care of this review of the MSI Stealth Pro GS63VR and I hope it was informative.  I won’t have either model more than a few more days, but if you have any questions about either, I’d be more than happy to help.  Please leave a comment in the section below.

I disabled the x turbo boost fo the disk and bang it worked great. ... – is this Intel’s fastest integrated graphics card yet? So question is whether to go for that or hold out for a future 1070 4k 17" to hit that safe ground.. What do you think oh oracle of the laptop world Derek my friend?  Granted that I don’t like the screen at all, $1549 is not a bad price for an i7 quad core and a GTX 1060 in such a small package.

I even emailed them to verify and they did so, but were wrong and lost all credibility with me to this day. As for heat, the laptop does tend to get pretty hot.  It’s a good thing MSI put that felt on the bottom to make the laptop feel at least a little more comfortable on the lap.  Under normal loads, it’s pretty tolerable, but gaming loads might require a cooling pad for many of you. Probably for the best because the 15" form factor is way more portable feeling. If that statement is true then I'll go the 15" Perhaps thats the reason the 15" is redicolously expensive here in AUS but the 17" is actually cheaper! The right side gets a second CPU exhaust.  You’ll also find a poorly placed power jack here, in the middle of everything.  I say poorly mainly because it’s on the right hand side and the cord can get in the way of your mouse, but at least the cord has a 90° elbow and is not sticking straight out.  Beside the power jack, there are also an HDMI 2.0 port, a Thunderbolt 3 port and a USB 2.0 port on this right edge.
