MSI GT75 Titan 8RF (GT75 Titan 8RF) Reviews
A monster in every way, the MSI GT75 Titan is an epic gaming machine with a high-refresh-rate screen, a comfy mechanical RGB keyboard, and chart-topping graphics grunt. Our key quibbles: high price and sheer bulk.
The GT75 Titan is a screaming laptop that delivers in real-world performance. It’s pricey, and is about as portable as a PC tower, with the bonus of a display. If you’re looking for one of the most powerful systems around and the price isn’t an issue, the GT75 is about as future proof as a laptop can get right now.
The MSI GT75 8RG is great for gaming with its GTX 1080 and it packs a wonderful 120 Hz display as well. There isn’t a significant overhaul in comparison to the previous generation but what’s noteworthy is that MSI added new features and lowered the price a little to bring it down to 2,99,990 which competes with the GTX 1080 MAX-Q laptops that are currently selling in the market. The Zephyrus and the Acer Triton 700 sports 7th Gen CPUs and GTX 1080 graphics cards. Given that they are MAX-Q laptops, they run slightly underpowered hardware and that’s where the GT75 gains an edge. However, all things considered, the MAX-Q laptops are way better in terms of portability which is what laptops were made for in the first place. So given the choice, we’d go for a MAX-Q laptop since they’re both priced the same.
If you can get past its size and weight, then the MSI GT75 8RG is a high-quality, well equipped and incredibly powerful desktop replacement that is reminiscent of classic tower PCs. The GT75 has extensive maintenance and upgrade options and plenty of connections among other things.
Added to this, MSI integrates a lightning fast and color accurate 120 Hz display and a decent sound system. The input devices are equally impressive. One of the GT75’s highlights is its mechanical keyboard; whose typing experience is streets ahead of the competition.
We cannot fully recommend the GT75 8RG though. As with its predecessor, the fan noise is a real sticking point. Although the 17-inch device is practically 6 cm thick, the fans are extremely loud under load. They are so loud that you will need to use a headset when gaming. The same is true for the Aorus X9 DT, but this device is only 3 cm thick. This comparable performance shows MSI’s cooling system to be somewhat lacking.
MSI crammed a plethora of powerful specs into a massive chassis, creating a bona fide beast for gaming, multimedia, and productivity. Excellent graphics and overall performance; Super-comfortable mechanical keyboard; Stays extraordinarily cool when you’re gaming; Powerful speakers; Vibrant Nvidia G-Sync display but on the downside, it’s very expensive.
