When it comes to the design of this laptop, Feng Shui-wise, this laptop is a master. Somehow, and we’re not sure how, MSI managed to fit all of their powerful components into a 14.9 x 9.8 x 0.69-inch, 4.2-pound chassis.
Comparing this MSI VR Ready GS63VR Stealth Pro-034 laptop with other gaming laptops that are currently on the market, we find that this is one of the slimmest 15-inch gaming laptops out there. In fact, it makes many of the other gaming laptops look chunky in comparison.
However, don’t let this slim chassis fool you – it is more than that. The laptop has a black, brushed-aluminum lid that gleams with anticipation. It’s pretty, making it hard not to want to touch it, and when you do, your fingerprints will show up on its inky metal. The red and white backlit dragon emblem in the center of the lid is pretty cool – the red accents running along the rear vents make the design look neat.
The 1920 x 1080 pixels matte display is begging for you to look at it. The matte 15.6-inch panel is fully capable of putting vivid colors in front of you, especially when it comes to red.
Nesting on the right side of the Stealth Pro, you’ll find a USB 3.1 Thunderbolt port, USB 2.0 port, HDMI, the power port, the power button and a Mini DisplayPort. Whereas, on the left side of the laptop, you have a trio of USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, a secure lock slot, a Gigabit Ethernet, a microphone jack and a Hi-Fi headphone jack.
If you like games, such as The Witcher 3, you’re probably not going to have problems with this laptop – we noticed the colors and graphics on this game shined through. The vividness comes from this laptop’s ability to reproduce a majority of the sRGBcolor.
Thanks to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, the graphics are amazing. With the SteamVR performance test, this laptop hit 7.4. Nvidia Pascal gives a boost to games like Witcher 3. In fact, with games like this, you should be able to maintain an average of 42 frames per second, while running on ultra.
If you knock your settings down to high, you will raise it to 56 fps. With the Hitman benchmark on Very High at 1080p, it comes to 58 fps. During the Grand Theft Auto benchmark, it scored 49fps.
Powering this laptop, you have the 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor with a total of 16GB of RAM. This laptop streamed an episode on Netflix with 12 tabs in Google Chrome open. It was also running a full system scan and never slowed down.
This laptop is on a par with other gaming laptops from its class. It scored 13,339 on a synthetic performance test – it beat the 7,790 mainstream average.
The MSI VR Ready GS63VR Stealth Pro-034 laptop’s 256 GB M.2 PCIe SSD is paired with a 1TB, 5,400-rpm hard drive. It ripped right through the File Transfer Test, which duplicated 4.97GB of multimedia files in merely 9 seconds. The transfer rate came to 565.6 megabytes per second which is brilliant.
As far as the battery life goes, unfortunately, it’s not that long. With continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi, the laptop can last up to 2 hours and 54 minutes.
The 720p integrated webcam can capture video at 30 fps, which is great for streaming. However, the cam isn’t big on detail as you will see pixelation and the color may be a little off. However, despite it all, the cam is still useful.
MSI VR Ready GS63VR Stealth Pro-034 Review: Verdict
Hope this MSI VR Ready GS63VR Stealth Pro-034 review was useful. Don’t take the sliminess of this laptop as a weakness, because it is certainly not weak by any means.
Beneath that chassis, you’ll find a beautiful gaming laptop that is fully capable of handling the latest games. Overall, in front of you, you have a very slim, VR-ready gaming laptop with amazing performance. If that is what you’re looking for, then this laptop is a great option.
