MSI GX660R Laptop Review

3D Mark

With 3D Mark we achieve scores that will be backed up on the next page.

When we tested the full-fat HD5870 on our 4GHz Core i7-930 we achieved about 19000 on a good example. So GPU-wise the GX660R with its HD5870M achieves about 50% of the performance of the desktop version. Considering you're getting a 1080P monitor along with all the accoutrements for your thousand pounds the GPU is probably 100 of that.

The "Turbo" actually kicks in under any major loading but for completions sake we manually started it anyway. Shades of the 486DX series. As you can see the GX660R does an excellent job of knowing when to apply this little tweak as our manual use of it was well within error tolerances.

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
