Review MSI GP60-i740M245FD Notebook

 

Thwarted gamer. An affordable notebook (699 Euros; ~$950) for computer gamers is what MSI offers with the GP60-i740M245FD. A Core i7 processor and a GeForce GPU, topped off with a matte Full HD display, create a lot of power under the bonnet. Our test...

Very good application performance; Good gaming performance; Matte FullHD display; Operating system can/has to be chosen individually

Loud across the entire load spectrum; Graphics memory connection via 64 bit cable; Screen has a blue cast

The graphics chip is linked to its memory via a merely adequate 64-bit connection, which throttles the GPU.
