MSI GP62MVR Leopard Pro Review
The new MSI GP62MVR is now selling for $900 ($1000 – $100 rebate), 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).
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 $900 this is a very good option and comes with an OS. The Clevo P650RP6 is sometimes selling for $1100-$1200 and I think it is better for $1100.
