MSI GT62VR 7RE Dominator Pro (i7-7820HQ/ GTX 1070/ 4K)

 

Today we look at the MSI GT62VR 7RE Dominator Pro which features an Ultra HD 4k panel, Core i7 7820H Ultra HD 4k panel, Core i7 7820HK processor, 512GB SSD and 8GB Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics. Lovely.

MSI GT62VR 7RE Dominator Pro Notebook Review

 

A balanced gaming laptop. MSI also uses the GeForce GTX 1070 graphic card in the GT62VR 7RE. The processor is new: Kaby Lake is used now. The rest of the features is also alright: IPS display, SSD+HDD, and 16 GB of RAM.

MSI Dominator Pro GT62VR 7RE 15.6" 4K Gaming Laptop - Black

 

Handles virtually any games on ultra settings, multitasks and doesn’t hiccup even with the most demanding things like rendering a 4K video, the speakers are great and the display is flawless

Battery could do with lasting a bit longer and the only issue is turbo mode isn’t selectable running on battery power but it’s no real issue

MSI Dominator Pro GT62VR 7RE 15.6" 4K Gaming Laptop - Black

 

Very Good Performance, Attractive laptop, very portable and great quality, Awesome display and audio. Extremely pleased with my Purchase!

It is costly, and because it doesn't use Nvidia Optimus the battery performance isn't as good as some of the rival laptops using the same graphics cards, i get a respectable 2-3 hours
