MSI GT62VR review: serious mobile gaming performance

Overclockable powerhouse with a GTX 1070 and a 4K display

By


Introduction

The new generation of graphics cards from Nvidia has brought with it a bunch of new gaming laptops. MSI has released a large number of new models. In the next few weeks we'll be reviewing all of them one by one extensively. We're starting with the GT62VR, a 15.6 inch laptop with a relatively high weight. The MSI GT62VR can be found for about 3075 dollars in our price comparison tool, but we're talking about a variant with an Ultra HD display.


Apart from the display this laptop has some other interesting features. We'll delve into the details later, but here's the gist of it: this variant comes with the high-end and overclockable Intel Core i7-6820HK quad-core processor, combined with 32GB of memory and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB of VRAM.

Even though the body is mostly made of plastic, MSI has done quite a bit to give this pricey device a more premium feeling: the back panel of the display and the material around the keyboard are made of metal.

MSI has also not held back with the display. The GT62VR features a 15.6 inch display with an Ultra HD (3840x2160) resolution. This means that everything will look nice and sharp and you'll have plenty of work space, especially if you don't put scaling at 200%.

We already mentioned the price: this variant, its full name is MSI GT62VR-6RE-016NL, costs about 3075 dollars. If you look well you can get it for a couple hundred bucks less. Nevertheless this is quite a hefty price, but what do you get in return?
