MSI GS65 – Their Best Gaming Laptop Yet!

My review the MSI GS65 Stealth gaming laptop with the new generation of 6 core CPUs. The best gaming laptop from MSI I’ve used.
Available Here –

Gaming laptops are about to get much faster with the latest introduction of 6 cores and one of the products leading the way is the MSI GS65 Stealth. MSI manages to keep this laptop pretty light at 4.14 pounds and 17.53mm thin. The RGB lit keyboard and a glass-coated touchpad are a nice touch. Gaming looks great with the 15.6 inch running at 144Hz with a 7ms response time.

I’m currently deployed and want to get a gaming laptop, my budget is around 1.5k and I preferably want something relatively light meaning in the 4.5 to 6.5 pound range since I know some can go up to 7. I would like for it to have a good display since I’m most likely going to use it as a day to day when I get back home, during deployment I’ll most likely have it hooked up to a tv or projector instead of using the actuall display. I’ve been shopping the dell 7577, asus rog gl503vm hero edition, the lenovo y720, gigabyte aero 14, and alienware 13r (but refurbished), also the helios 300. I lean more towards laptops that dont look really gamey and I know theres always compromises to be made with performance, size, display, and battery life. Any suggestions or tips I’ll greatly take. I usually want at least 256gb ssd and 16gb ram but if I can get a laptop for a cheaper price and upgrade it myself I’m not opposed to that either.

AriomKirato says:

Wait a minute… Does this computer only have access to m.2 storage drive? Meaning you’ll be stuck with only this way of expending the storage or is it loaded with some 2.5 inch bay drive?
Sounds like a deal breaker to me at least…

Daniel Huang says:

Hi Dave, do you have any problem when gaming on this laptop, in particular, Overwatch?

I’ve only got my hands on the laptop for one day so I test my only game Overwatch but I experience pretty bad FPS drop and stuttering. I tried changing profile to performance in the MSI game centre software and crank up the fan but still experience the same FPS drop and stutter. The game setting is on low for everything, as I play competitively so I don’t care much about graphics for a fast moving game like overwatch. I played on a 240hz Benq monitor connected via HDMI but I can hardly get FPS over 140. When the FPS drop happens it goes down to around 100 and the game stutters.

My previous laptop, an Asus GL502 with GTX 1060, easily runs at 160+FPS albeit I get the occasional thermal throttle due to poor heating design.

I have another issue where the Nivida control panel will only detect the Benq monitor but not the laptop display. Whereas the Intel graphics setting would only detect the laptop display and not the monitor. On the windows display setting, I can see both displays and set to extend to these displays.

Do you have the same issues and suggestions on how to fix it?

Appreciate if anyone can help, I spend a lot of money on this laptop and it’s disappointing that it’s not even close to the performance of my last gen Asus ROG GL502. I know the hardware is more than capable as my friend got the Gigabyte Aero 15x v8 which pretty much have the same hardware but he has only tested on the 144hz laptop display. However compared to the Asus GTX1060 the performance gain isn’t that much, maybe 10%.

For those looking to get this laptop, I agree with a lot of what Dave has said, the build quality is good, very thin, light, portable (relative to my Asus GL502 obviously), and looks great. Screen colour is good, the keyboard feels good although I feel it’s a bit shallow, but that’s just me. However, compared to the Aero 15 the keyboard feels slightly better, the aero 15 feels slightly mushy.

It runs at a much cooler temperature compare to my Asus and similar to Aero 15. The fan can get loud though. The CPU is much faster than the 7th Gen for sure.
