MSI GE62 2QD Apache Review – Conclusion

Starting with the build quality of the system we were fairly impressed with the GE62 2QD Apache. Brushed metal lids are fairly common but often manufacturers skimp on the palm areas (as an example) but that is not the case here. Although not as slim as some other models from MSI this laptop is still fairly compact and at 2.4kg, pretty light too. The components used are all quality, well established brands such as Kingston and SteelSeries.

Connectivity is decent and the ports are sensibly located and as for the other aspects of the basic user experience the keyboard offers a sturdy, responsive typing experience with good LED lighting. The screen offers good viewing angles and lovely crisp detail with strong colours. MSI have for quite some time offered a decent audio  experience and that continues here (on a hardware level). We would always recommend a good set of headphones to pair with a laptop but for general use the Dynaudio solution used here is fine. Not too tinny, reasonable bass.

Speaking of audio, the use of Nahimic software for the Realtek powered hardware is interesting. We found no issues of note with this new solution and from a vocal point of view the enhancements offered by the software were noticeable. Elsewhere in the software the inclusion of the likes of Norton still disappoints us. Having security/anti-virus software is always a good thing but there are solutions available which are far less intrusive and less resource hungry. We do like Dragon Gaming Centre though and the inclusion of the likes of X-Split is ideal on a gaming system.

As far as pricing goes this particular configuration retails for £1099 and overall that seems fair. We would have much preferred MSI to go with 2x4GB of memory rather than 1x8GB as the configuration as is halves memory bandwidth. Yes it makes a future upgrade a little easier (just 1x8gb stick) but that is inconveniencing everyone to help out the few who will upgrade. We did note that at 100% load the fans are quite loud however that isn’t a normal usage scenario and elsewhere the performance is good (for example the 4.5hr battery life for desktop productivity). The USB 3.0 speed is competitive, the SSD sits at the level of desktop SATA 3 drives and our CPU offers a nice balance of thermal performance, clock speed and threads. As for the GPU, it does exactly what we need from a mobile product. It supports the latest tech (whether thats DirectX 12 or PhysX etc) and allows us to game at the laptops native resolution. Support for multiple displays is also available for those who then plug in at a desk and of course 4k is supported too for one large display.

Summary: A well balanced system in terms of specifications with a good level of build quality.

  1. It is amazing how Nvidia bridged the gap between desktop GPU’s and mobile GPU’s has shrunk so much that desktop performance out of a laptop is now possible.
    I would like to see a review of the $899 Acer aspire Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition VN7-591G-73Y5 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4720HQ (2.60GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 4 GB GDDR5 with a 15.6″ 1080p panel.

    I would love to see its performance for $900 less dollars compared to this MSI Gaming laptop. Considering it has the same CPU, the Same GPU with 2 extra GB of vram but clocked a tiny bit slower, a backlit keyboard, blutooth etc. The Acer is a pretty unbelievable deal when compared to this. For the cost of this MSI Apache it should have a 980m in it.
