Here is another gaming laptop from MSI, Model GE73VR 7RF Raider Pro. Key highlight about MSI GE73VR 7RF is that it is using GTX 1070 GPU, comes with 120Hz display and packed with SteelSeries per key RGB Keyboard.
This per key RGB gaming keyboard by SteelSeries gives user the ability to change the color of individual key as per their choice. This laptop is using Cooler Boost 5 technology that makes use of 7 heat pipes and dual fans to keep the core temperature under control.
Performance was smooth, heat-up was under control and sound output was quite impressive. There are 4 speakers – 2 oversized speaker and 2 woofers and these are placed underneath the laptop. Another thing that you will notice is the USB ports light up when the laptop is switches on.

Build and finishing is very good, aluminium alloy design, metallic finishing the top lid gives an impression of a sporty car. The Per Key RGB is amazing check the video review and see it in action. Overall performance was pretty good, and the 120Hz display will give you a cleaner and smoother visual experience.
The 3DMark11 score that I got was 16,478 that’s pretty good considering the GTX 1070 GPU and the Cooler Boost 5 does seem to work pretty well maintaining the GPU temperature at around 66 degrees.
I played Call of Duty WWII latest game, do check its performance in the video review.
Gaming laptops are not cheap and this one the MSI GE73VR 7RF is available on Amazon for Rs. 1,85,990. A very good option for serious gaming users.
