The MSI GE72 revision from 2017 is interesting because of several reasons. First, Intel’s brand new processor architecture enters the notebook segment with the Core i7-7700HQ. On the other hand, 3GB of NVidia’s gaming chip GTX 1060 is on board, which ranks in between mid-range and upper class. Cooled by using MSI exclusive Cooler Boost 4 technology creating dual thermal modules internally by allocating dedicated heat pipes for GPU and CPU. One click on the fan boost button, a total of 6 heat pipes and dual fans actively and effectively push heat out of the system, ensuring your laptop stays cool and performs at its max.

1. 3GB of GTX 1060 is quite a disappoint when 6GB is standrad.
2. 8GB of RAM. Gaming PC’s have maintained the standard of 16GB of RAM
3. Wi-Fi card cannot achieve Gigabit speed. Moreover, it does not use any technology to ensure better gaming performance over Wi-Fi.
While it offers the GTX 1060, it’s 3GB and not the standard 6GB. The anti-glare display has vivid colors for better viewing. The Audio Boost technology enhances the gaming headset sound detail and sound stage. Although it’s lighter at 2.7 kg, it has a very small battery that can hardly provide the juice for couple of hours. The SSD provided is great for gaming and used as a boot partition while the SATA provides enough storage for your files on the MSI GE72 7RE (Apache Pro) 266UK.
