MSI GT72 VR 6RE Review

Clock Speeds

Although, as we'll see below, the GPU has been significantly beefed up, the CPU in the GT72VR is a Skylake i7-6700HQ at around 3.1-3.2GHz depending upon core usage. It might not set your trousers on fire in the CPU heavy tests, but it should be more than adequate to keep the GPU fed with polygons.

If you compare the GTX 1070 within the GT72VR 7RE to the specifications of the desktop variety you'll discover ten extra TMUs giving 128 extra CUDA Cores, but at a slightly lower clock speed than the desktop model. Still, it's a full on GTX 1070, but in a laptop, which is great news for gamers.

In any laptop you're always going to be more thermally limited than you will in a desktop solution, but even so the clock speeds are high enough that the GTX 1070 should provide excellent gaming performance.

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
