MSI GE75 Raider 8SG –Raider on the Loose
The build quality of the MSI GE75 Raider 8SG is as good as any MSI laptop we’ve seen in this price bracket. A combination of aluminum and plastic makes it sturdy and durable. The laptop is slim and lightweight, considering it is 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 aluminum finish with a Msi Dragon Logo which glows as well. Speaking of ports, there is one 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. The laptop offers a Cherry MX mechanical keyboard by SteelSeries with number pad. There is also an option to save presets and attach them to games. The MSI logo branding on the back lights up as the dragon awakens from its sleep. Talking about the display, it comes with a 17.3-inch full HD display that offers 144Hz refresh rate, which means this display is best suited for gaming.
MSI GE75 Raider 8SG is a monster that packs an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and Nvidia RTX 2080 graphics card. This laptop comes with dual storage option, one with 512GB M.2 storage to run Windows OS and 1TB HDD for storage. We tried running GTA 5, Battlefield 5, Assassin’s Creed and Just Cause 3 on it and the performance was smooth and lag free. It literally felt like playing on a high-end desktop gaming machine, despite being a portable device. This high-performance gaming laptop will get you an average of 60fps on ultra settings. Though the laptop gets heats up quickly while playing graphics intensive games, but that can be cooled down easily as it provides the exhaust fan that ventilates the heat outside with just the touch of a button.
Overall, the MSI GE75 Raider 8SG is an incredible gaming machine that suited well for pro gamers who keeps on traveling every week for work. So the question lies, is this worth the price? Honestly, the answer depends on your needs. If you want a portable gaming laptop and raw computing power on the go, then MSI GE75 Raider 8SG would be the best choice.
