The gaming laptop market is currently thriving with the latest editions of both Intel’s 7th Generation of processors (codenamed Kaby Lake) and NVIDIA’s GTX 10-series GPUs. With NVIDIA’s new GPUs, gamers can enjoy desktop-grade performance on a mobile platform where there was once a huge disparity. Gaming on the move presents a set of challenges and there are certainly advantages to investing in a powerful desktop machine – but some users either simply do not have the space or favour a unit which is portable. Today we turn to one of the leading manufacturers in this field – MSI, for a detailed look at the new GS43VR 7RE Phantom Pro.
On offer from the MSI GS43VR is a powerful specification which revolves around Intel’s Core i7-7700HQ, 16GB DDR4 and then 1080p champion by way of the renowned 6GB GTX 1060. These key components supply a strong platform which is further strengthened by the robust Samsung SM951 SSD.
