MSI GT75 TITAN 8RG-201 Gaming Laptop: Core i9/GTX 1080 BEAST!

 

Well it's finally happened and Intel has released a Core i9 processor for laptops. The unlocked i9-8 It's a beast from MSI – and at £3500 it's not cheap either!

Very good performance.

High fan noise and temperatures.

Overall the MSI GT75 Titan 8RG offers excellent performance but it comes at a cost.

MSI GT75 Titan 8RG

 

A monster in every way, the MSI GT75 Titan is an epic gaming machine with a high-refresh-rate screen, a comfy mechanical RGB keyboard, and chart-topping graphics grunt. Our key quibbles: high price and sheer bulk.

Ferocious graphics and media-processing performance. Excellent 120Hz G-Sync display. Per-key RGB mechanical keyboard. Plenty of ports. Loud speakers.

Expensive. Requires two giant power adapters. Awkward three-column numpad layout. No dedicated gaming macro keys. Brief battery life.

Bottom Line: A monster in every way, the MSI GT75 Titan is an epic gaming machine with a high-refresh-rate screen, a comfy mechanical RGB keyboard, and chart-topping graphics grunt. Our key quibbles: high price and sheer bulk.

high fan noise in 3D applications ; occasional coil whine at idle ; two power supplies needed for the i9-8950HK CPU ; the case is very thick and heavy ; short battery life

If you can get past its size and weight, then the MSI GT75 8RG is a high-quality, well equipped and incredibly powerful desktop replacement that is reminiscent of classic tower PCs. The GT75 has extensive maintenance and upgrade options and plenty of...

Consumer review (ao.com)

the best 1080 gaming laptop

 

"Tried MSI Gt series on EGX event, and always want to have one. Finally get one now and the performance is amazing, especially its per key RGB function. I could still see my key broad clearly and just recognized by its color even under dark environment. "

Consumer review (ao.com)

Great for gaming!

 

"Mainly using for gaming and occasional editing in Adobe Premiere and it's very smooth thanks to the GTX 1080. Back lit keyboard is a great touch. Larger SSD would have been nice however. Of course it's pretty heavy so bare that in mind."
