MSI GP62MVR Leopard Pro Review
The new MSI GP62MVR is now selling for $860, making it an interesting choice. It’s relatively lightweight at 2.2kg (basic configuration probably, without PSU) and has a GTX 1060 3GB version GPU, I7-6700HQ CPU, 1x8GB 2133MHZ DDR4 RAM, 1TB 7200RPM HDD and an “IPS-level” display which might just be an IPS display – according to Tomshardware, it is indeed an IPS, but according to some people, and the past experiences, it’s not and you shouldn’t expect too much of it.
The GP62MVR has a mDP port and a USB type-C port, so connection ports selection is ok. The GTX 1060 3GB should be very close in performance to the GTX 1060GB 6GB version, although having lower cores count. GSync is not included in this model.
I’d say that this is probably a very basic machine, but for $765-$850 this is a very good option and comes with an OS and it has no competitor for this price, in the performance department. The basic Lenovo Y720 will cost at least $170-$250, even with an I5 and certainly with an I7 and although it has a better screen and some advantages, it won’t have the same performance/price ratio, nor low price.
The mobile GTX 1060 3GB is the same as the 1060 6GB, only with less memory, and less suitable for higher than 1080p resolutions in some games (not all).
