MSI GE73 Raider RGB 8RF Laptop Review (i7-8750H/GTX1070)

Rise of the Tomb Raider

We used Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution and graphics set to “Very High” quality with the Rise of the Tomb Raider’s built-in benchmark.

The GE73 is clearly outperforming the two systems with NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics in the Overclockers and Cyberpower systems. It’s not far off the AMD Radeon RX 580-sporting DinoPC either. This is an amazing result for a notebook.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

We used Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution and graphics set to “High” quality with the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided built-in benchmark. This is a more demanding game than Rise of the Tomb Raider, so using the ‘very high’ settings isn’t recommended with anything short of a GTX 1080.

The GE73’s abilities with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided are even more impressive than with Rise of the Tomb Raider, although we don’t have any comparable results from the DinoPC, which would probably have achieved a similar frame rate. Nevertheless, we can safely say that the GE73 will cope with pretty much any current title at its native Full HD screen resolution and high quality settings, and could drive some games at respectable frame rates on an external monitor at 1,440p, although 4K might be a stretch for some titles.
