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.
