If you’re a huge fan of PC games, this article is for you. Because the GT72 2QE Dominator Pro from MSI is one the bestest gaming laptops I’ve seen so far, and it’s one amazingly powerful machine that should be on the wish list of all gaming geeks out there.
Computing power and visuals
Let’s look at where it matters. The GT72 2QE packs a real wallop with its Quad Core Intel i7 processor (2.5GHz – 3.5GHz) and 8GB RAM which can even be expanded up to 32GB. This speaks power without any doubt. And the visual abilities of the GT72 2QE makes it a device that really helps you appreciate “next-gen” games. Packing the latest in NVIDIA graphic card technology – the GeForce GTX 980M, you can crank up the video settings to maximum without any worries and experience desktop performance on the laptop. With NVIDIA’s PhysX technology, physics look more accurate and fluid, while the Battery Boost in the GPU can extend your gaming time when you’re unplugged. When all these are added to the machine’s 1920×1080 resolution on a 17.3-inch Full HD screen, everything just looks crystal clear and stunning. Whatever game you’re playing, the finest details can be clearly seen.
Though the machine’s design isn’t quite futuristic, it isn’t shabby either. It actually looks slightly sleeker when compared to its predecessor the GT70, and it’s equipped with a backlight and a keyboard by SteelSeries. Although it’s a gaming laptop, which means you’ll mostly be using a mouse with it, the trackpad isn’t lacking. It’s big enough so it’s not annoying to use when you have to, and it greatly reduces the number of times in which you have to return your finger to the default position in order to get the mouse pointer to the other edge of the screen.
Heat management is undoubtedly one of the major concerns when speaking of gaming laptops. The GT72 2QE has two rear exhaust fans, which speed up rather quietly when you’re gaming. At max settings, the machine is still able to maintain reasonable temperatures. Even when dust starts to gather and temperature management becomes even more important, the GT72 2QE shouldn’t face much problem when maintaining good CPU and GPU temperatures if you keep everything clean.
All in all, the GT7 2QE is an awesome machine with powerful gaming capabilities, which shouldn’t have any problems running the latest PC games in the next three to five years – it’s one of the ultimate fantasies of geeks!
