We quite often take a look at MSI laptops, most of which we’ve been quite fond of, though today we look at something a little different. An ultraportable gaming laptop with all of the credentials to back up those claims.

Packed inside its 18mm thick chassis (with the lid closed) is an Intel Core i7 8750H CPU, rocking 6 cores and 12 threads, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 with Max-Q Design, 2x NVMe SSD storage drives, 32GB of DDR4-2666MHz memory and plenty more.

Along with the specification listed above, MSI have gone to great lengths to install a thin-bezel 1080p display to the GS65 Stealth. This display is capable of 144Hz and boasts IPS-level colours.

Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, 8 hours of productivity battery life and a slim charging adaptor should make this a perfectly portable powerhouse, while the inclusion of several display adaptors, DYNAUDIO and a SteelSeries-developed keyboard means it can be used as a desktop replacement once home, if you so require.

On paper, at least, the MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RF appears to offer solid performance within a paper-thin enclosure. Let’s throw some tests at it and see how it performs.
