The build quality of the MSI GF63 is as good as any MSI laptop we’ve seen in this price bracket. A combination of aluminium and plastic makes it sturdy and durable. The laptop is slim and lightweight, this was not expected from a gaming laptop. Though the gaming laptop is dealing with extremely tight dimensions and lightweight construction, it still manages to pack great hardware specifications. The lid got a brushed aluminium finish with a Msi Dragon Logo printed on it. Speaking of ports, there is one USB Type-C port, HDMI, 3x USB 3.0 Type-A ports, ethernet port and a separate 3.5mm speaker and mic audio jack. The audio on this laptop is loud enough to fill your room unless you rest it on your lap. The keyboard is backlit and looks quite compact. Just like other MSI gaming laptop, the GF63 8RD offers red accent to the backlit keyboard.
The GF63 8RD is an excellent laptop that can perform process intensive multiple tasks rather than just gaming. This laptop sports 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor paired with 8GB DDR4 memory for multitasking and a 128GB SSD to significantly improve Windows load times as well as improved gaming performance. It has an additional 1TB of storage, thereby making it possible to store and save an ample amount of data. Talking about the display, this laptop comes with a 15.6-inch full HD 1080p IPS display, making it good enough display for a hardcore gaming.
The GF63 8RD comes with NVIDIA GTX 1050 ti graphics card and it performs really well. I spend most of my time playing Battlefield 5, an FPS based game is actually a fairly demanding game when you run it at ultra settings. The laptop was easily able to keep up with the game when the frame rate was locked at 60 FPS, with almost no dropped frames, even in the most chaotic situations. I also tested out the open world GTA V, which is also one of the graphics intensive games played well at around 50-60 FPS on ultra settings.
