MSI GT70 0NC 17.3″ Laptop Review (i7 3610QM / GTX 670M)

Rating: 7.5.

MSI has taken the mobile gaming market by storm in recent years with their highly popular and competitive range of gaming laptops. With the recent release of Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors and nVidia’s GTX 600 series mobile graphics cards, MSI took the opportunity to incorporate them into the latest addition to their notebook family.

MSI designed the GT70 0NC to be (in their own words) “fast, powerful and accurate”. At the heart of this system making MSI’s desire a reality, is the lightning-quick Intel Core i7 3610QM processor. To balance the system, graphics are supplied in the form of a 3GB GTX 670M which is powering a 17.3” Full-HD Anti-Glare LED screen.

Readers who aren’t interested solely in gaming will be pleased to hear that the GT70 0NC has plenty of productivity-enhancing hardware on offer. 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory coupled with a pair of 64GB SSDs in RAID 0 configuration ensures that this system is equally as fast in day-to-day scenarios as it is in a gaming environment.

Touting a 17.3” 1080p screen, 16GB of memory, RAID 0 SSDs, a BluRay drive and Killer Gaming network card, is MSI’s latest ‘Gaming Series’ iteration worth its credit card-crunching £1,999 price tag?!

  1. This system exposes a problem with nvidia mobile pricing right now. the 7970m is cheaper than the GTX680m and faster, never mind the 670m.

  2. The only issue with the 7970m is the noise and heat it generates. ive heard several laptops using it and they get very very loud when gaming.

  3. I’m quite sure the one shown is the GT780, not the GT70. The GT70 has a very boring design, and the 0nC/0nD are slim.
    Either way, it is pretty much my dream machine – 17″ and fast enough for games.
    After getting my current 17″, I don’t want to go any smaller, although it’s no good with games.

  4. My bad… I was thinking of the GE range… then again, the GT60’s look like the GE60’s and GE70’s while the GT70 and GT780 look like the GTX683 without the lights. Confusing..

  5. (didnt read the whole article)

    According to a website, the GTX 670M is not a Kepler based GPU, this is still a Fermi graphicscard, bigger DIE, less powerful etc..

    GTX 670M = GTX 570M (Bad MSi!!!)
