MSI GT72 2QE Dominator Pro G (1461UK) G-Sync Gaming Laptop Review

SSD Performance

CDM-SSD-1 CDM-SSD-0x00-1
The 128GB Toshiba SATA 6Gbps SSD shows some positive performance numbers. The all-important 4K performance levels are good and the transition from compressible to incompressible workloads does not represent a cliff-edge drop in performance.

HDD Performance

CDM-HDD-1

HGST's 1TB 7200RPM HDD is able to push more than 130MBps sequential reads and writes, which is good performance for a 2.5″ drive.

USB 3

We tested USB 3.0 performance using the Kingston HyperX 3K SSD connected to a SATA 6Gb/s to USB 3.0 adapter powered by an ASMedia ASM1053 controller.

USB-3-speed-1

USB 3 performance tops out around the 400MBps mark. This is slightly slower than the interface's maximum speed that can be reached using the UAS protocol.

Wireless

We use Totusoft’s LAN Speed Test software to measure the real-world throughput offer by the Killer 1525 802.11ac networking solution.

The Linksys EA6900 router was used and there was a small amount of network clutter (mainly on the 2.4GHz frequency band).

wifi
Killer's 802.11ac wireless chipset shows solid transfer rates when located in close proximity to the wireless router. The same vendor's Wireless-N 1202 chipset simply cannot compete with the level of performance shown by the 1525 solution.
