MSI GE62 Apache Pro Performance
I ran the 3D Mark 11 benchmark app, got a score of 9449 that as per the hardware is good enough. Furmark benchmark temperature was pretty stable at 64 degrees. You can play high end games on this gaming laptop for 24/7 without it getting heated up, stays stable.
I played The rise of Tomb Raider,Dark Souls II, Hard Reset and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. All these games played well without any issues, lags, the gaming experience was smooth. Check video review.
Gaming laptops are not that cheap and it is not for ordinary gaming users, if you play a lot of high end games for over 5 hours or more in one stretch then you need a good gaming devices. The MSI GE62 Apache Pro is a good entry level gaming laptop that does perform well, packed with cool features and priced just right.
