MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro Review

We’ve come to think of gaming laptops as massive, heavy, loud machines. The assumption, when buying one, is that you’re only ever going to use it on a desk in one place, not carry it around with you every day. The appeal so far has been portability, which isn’t necessarily the same as mobility. Laptops that try to be the best of both worlds, such as the stylish HP Omen, usually cut back on the powerful hardware and so aren’t as good for gaming. It’s been hard to strike a balance between these two objectives.

However, technology keeps improving and every so often there’s a leap that lets devices get smaller and more powerful. In this case, it’s Nvidia’s 10-series GPUs, which we’ve been very impressed with on the desktop front and are now appearing inside laptops. The GeForce GTX 1060 in particular is powerful enough to meet the minimum spec for VR headsets such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive yet runs cool enough to fit into a slim laptop.

MSI has made that specific attribute the main attraction of its latest gaming laptop, which just happens to be extremely slim and light. While it’s too soon to test VR functionality, that power can just as easily translate to 1920×1080 gaming. We’re eager to see whether MSI has managed to find the balance that has long eluded gamers.”)}(“datalayer”,”z9f2640b1-0322-4dc9-abe1-678b1b8037e1″,true, 1 , 1);
