MSI GE63 Raider RGB Edition review

 

This gaming laptop takes lighting to the next level

Striking, functional lighting ; Gorgeous optional 4K screen ; Excellent keyboard

Left-aligned touchpad isn’t ideal

We know less about this gaming laptop than we’d like, but we’re hugely impressed by the lighting offering on this laptop, especially considering its esports and immersion implications. The GE63 Raider RGB could easily become a weapon of choice for pro...

MSI GE63 Raider RGB 8RE (i7-8750H; GTX 1060) Laptop Review

 

The MSI GE63 Raider RGB 8RE's name may be something of a mouthful but it does helpfully contain one It's another laptop with an i7-8750H and GTX 1060 – is it worth £1380?

120Hz screen great for gaming.

Overall styling slightly underwhelming.

RGB may be the headline selling point of this laptop but in reality it’s the core basics it gets right that make it.

MSI GE63 Raider RGB

 

Esports aficionados with an eye for bling will warm to MSI's GE63 Raider RGB, a gaming laptop that combines powerful components, a 120Hz display, and a heaping helping of pretty lights.

Powerful processor and graphics. Over-the-rainbow RGB lighting. High-refresh display panel. GTX 1070 is not a dialed-back Max-Q chip.

Run-of-the-mill battery life. Fans sometimes get loud under load.

Bottom Line: Esports aficionados with an eye for bling will warm to MSI's GE63 Raider RGB, a gaming laptop that combines powerful components, a 120Hz display, and a heaping helping of pretty lights.

MSI GE63 Raider RGB 8RF (i7-8750H, GTX 1070, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Let there be light. MSI adorns its GE series laptops discreetly, with just some RGB lighting on the device's display lid. The GE63 8RF Raider is equipped with Intel Coffee Lake processors, a generational improvement from its GE predecessors. Find out...

120 Hz panel with impressive color-space accuracy ; relatively thin and light ; brushed aluminum finish ; decent speaker quality ; RGB lighting ; practical manufacturer tools ; fast Wi-Fi

much slower card reader than its predecessor; potentially a bug? ; high fan noise when gaming ; poor viewing angles ; relatively small battery ; no Thunderbolt 3 port

The MSI GE63 Raider RGB 8RF is a successful high-end notebook that is only let down by its loud fans. The device is a good all-round performer thanks to its high-end hardware and comes with an RGB keyboard, a stylish metal case, decent speakers and...

Looks great, fantastic build quality, runs every game I've tried to like a desktop.

Heavy, battery only last 3-4 hours even on light use, and the RGB software keeps changing my keyboard to look like a unicorn in a blender.
