MSI GT72 VR 6RE Review

3D Mark

In case you doubt the difference that a full GTX 1070 can have to your gaming capabilities, just for the 3D Mark results we'll compare this GT72VR 6RE with last years GT72 2QE. Similar specifications except the 2QE had a mobile GTX 980 inside it, and this 6RE obviously has the full GTX 1070 inside. There is no denying that the GTX 1070 has performance way beyond that of its mobile predecessor, and it's a credit to the work nVidia have put in to improving the efficiency of their Pascal GPU to the point that you can run a full desktop model in a laptop. The lower detail of 3D Mark 11 P means that the CPU is doing more of the work, hence the relatively low score, but once you move into the realistic resolutions and detail level the GPU absolutely shines.

I don't think this display goes up to 120hz as stated. Every website i've been on lists it as a 60hz variable refresh rate display. Which is a shame since 120hz combined with G-sync would've been amazing!Quote

I've heard there is no way to shut off the 1070? That will make for bad battery life... Wonder why they did that. And why no room for the 4x SSDs, now can only install 1 with 1 2.5" drive.Quote

My other half has a slightly earlier model, hers has the GTX980 in it and 32GB RAM but I think most of the spec after that is the same or very close to it. She got it from Overclockers and it was also about £2,000 which is an eye watering amount of money to be sure but for her it is her main rig, we do not have the space for a 2nd desktop so she has a laptop...

To say that the laptop is a beast is, to be frank, an understatement! She finally managed to run Batmam Arkham Knight balls to wall maxed out and the machine didn't even breathe hard!

Imho it is a lot of money but boy you get a whole hell of a lot of machine for it!

Those temps are shocking for an MSI. Id gotten used to seeing ~90c on them.

Nice to see they are improving. Now stop putting all that gaming crap, badges etc etc. Need a nice one that can game and be used in an office environment without all the flak.

Should add in a kiddies range.Quote
