The MSI GS75 Stealth is one of the most popular gaming flagships for MSI. Although you can get different builds and setups, we are going to focus on the 10SGS-027 model that has absolutely all top-end components on the market today. This computer will ensure no compatibility issues with games (at least not for about 4 years), and second of all, it has a 17.3" screen with fantastic resolution and refreshes rate. With the amazing resolution coming on future VR headsets, it's important to be well equipped for the future. Whether you're using your VR headset or more traditional computer gaming, this is a complete package that will last you for years to come.
Games and compatibility- It's hard to determine when a computer will become obsolete as the gaming industry is rapidly evolving and making it more challenging to create a computer that fits every game's needs. That's why game developers are also limited to what hardware is available to run their games as well. So if you're looking for a state-of-the-art laptop that does not come short on any components, the MSI GS75 Stealth 10SGS-027 is probably the best choice on the market.
Graphics and Processor- The insides of this beast is very impressive, with an Intel Core i9 series with up to 5.3GHz rate that handles VR games effortlessly. It works seamlessly with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 Super Max-Q graphics with 8GB dedicated RAM. The MSI Stealth 10SGS-027 also features 1TB NVMe SSD and a total of 32GB RAM to give you a smooth-running VR laptop. But as mentioned in our Sager NP7958F1 review, an Intel version with the same specs does come at a higher price. You could settle for less with a cheaper setup, but this particular laptop costs $2,700 on Amazon, $1,000 more than an AMD computer with basically the same specs.
Hardware and components - The exclusive MSI Cooler Boost technology is a cooling system that saves you electricity and keeps your components from overheating. It regulates as the temperature changes and doesn't go full throttle all the time. Even though you can find a cheaper computer with an identical setup, you will probably save some of that cost on the electricity bill later on. If you're an active gamer, this is certainly an advantage. Other than that, the chassis is sleek and elegant, with a 17.3" high-resolution screen, a good sound system, and a full-sized backlit keyboard.
Extras and prices – There is really not much to upgrade here. A decent soundbar could be beneficial if you're moving around a lot in VR, for a better sound experience in the game. But, everything you need to play any VR game on the market is neatly put together in a stylish and durable chassis. Great connectivity with high-speed USB ports, HDMI and Bluetooth, and wifi integrated. The webcam is doable with a 720p resolution but, not good enough for any live stream if that's what you're thinking of using it for.
Conclusion – When you already have virtual desktop programs to give you as many screens as you want in VR, a 17" screen isn't really necessary for those who are strictly interested in VR. For $2,700, it's hard to justify the price when you do have just as good alternatives for a more reasonable price. But what you also need to think about is all the other features you get in this computer package, A superb widescreen, excellent intelligent cooling system, and a light package you can carry around with you effortlessly. For a 17" screen laptop, it is probably the least clanky on the market today that matches the same specifications.
MSI's flagship model surpasses most competitors when it comes to specification and VR compatibility. A durable beast of a machine that will keep your VR games running for many years to come. Top-end hardware and an excellent cooling system make sure that your computer is sustainable for the future.
