MSI GX660R Laptop Review

Obviously it would be both unfair, and entirely pointless, to compare the MSI GX660R to any of the desktop based systems we've tested. Firstly it's been a long while since we've tested a mobile dual-core or mobile GPU, and secondly because of the nature of desktop components and their lack of battery life or such vital heat considerations even a HD5870 will be more powerful than its mobile equivalent.

SiSoft Sandra

Without instant comparison there is less of "stating the obvious" going on here, but we can tell you that the little i5-460M really makes a mockery of its relatively small horsepower (pony power?). The Memory Bandwidth is particularly fine but the whole underpinnings of the GX660R will easily handle any average task that you throw at it.

PC Mark Vantage

Backing up the above is the results from PC Mark Vantage x64. Such a wealth of tests in a variety of situations and applications but the MSI GX660R never flinches. So often we see systems that are streamlined to a single task that looks good on the blurb, but the MSI will chew up anything you choose to do.

Thats a good looking laptop. When I first bought my Xps m170 i thought it was sexy as all hell. I'll never buy a big laptop again. That one looks huge, but what a great resolution.Quote

It's definietly better than the old Toshiba Satellite SPA40 I have lying around somewhere. The sound on the MSI one is impressive in the vid I don't think I have ever seen a laptop with that level of sound quality before. The gaming performance was good too, it was funny seeing Crysis on Gamer I have never seen it on that setting before, it looked like a PS2 game but still, for a laptop to run it at above 30fps is good.Quote
