What to look out for in the new MSI GE63VR Raider Edition notebook
With sleek angles on the outside and advanced cooling to keep the hotted-up insides in check, the latest line of MSI’s ‘Raider’ gaming laptops is likely going to bring some power and prettiness to the table, hopefully without blowing the budget.
The MSI GE63VR will be sporting some brand new tech, including the world’s first 3ms 120Hz display panel. Along with this impressive refresh rate and response time, this display promises a wider color gamut (up to 94-percent of the NTSC spectrum) and is HDR compatible, meaning that you’ll be able to see a broader range of colors with a better overall contrast.
New to this series is the latest iteration in MSI’s laptop cooling systems, Cooler Boost 5, which uses a series of two fans, seven pipes, and four ventilation points in order to keep the system within reasonable operating temperatures.
Although we don’t yet know which CPU is driving the Raider line, we do know they will feature an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, which is a decent jump over the GE62 and GE72’s 1050. Despite the improvements, MSI have managed to squeeze the new Raider’s into a smaller chassis and slimmer body.
MSI is also quite proud of the aesthetics of the new range, with inspiration for the lid’s illuminated corners taken from sports cars, and a sleek, black body that will be familiar to any MSI fans. The company’s partnership with SteelSeries has resulted in one of their Per-Key RGB keyboards to make its way into the MSI GE63VR, with customisable illumination for each key available via MSI’s software.
The aptly-named ‘Giant Speakers’ are apparently two-to-three times larger than other speakers in similarly-ranged notebooks, and have five times the chamber size, resulting in a much louder volume (over 105dBA) and allegedly better audio quality and sound detail too.
According to the MSI press release, the new design was “inspired by exotic sports cars” with more angular accent marks and what appears to be larger rear ventilation grilles in the same style as the enthusiast GT83VR series. The MSI GE and GT series of notebooks have always had excellent cooling solutions and we expect the new GE refresh to be no different.
Core specifications include up to the GTX 1070 with the same 120 Hz/3 ms HDR display options as the recently refreshed MSI GS63VR. Expect individually-lit SteelSeries RGB keys as well, which will make it a first for a mainstream-level gaming notebook.
