What’s the 16✗16✗16 Laptop?

  • Dave2D review of the MSI PS63. The best laptop from MSI for portable creative work, productivity and gaming while rocking a massive battery life.
    Available Here - amzn.to/2Rfksvt
    Equipped with a GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q and a i7-8656U and a claimed 16 HOUR battery life, the PS63 Prestige laptop from MSI brings some of the best performance to a thin and light 15" device. This device has much better performance over the 2019 Razer Blade Stealth.

    I think more companies should do this CPU/GPU combo. 13 hours of battery life is no joke. Thanks for watching!

    Hi I have some questions about the ps63 modern, the most important is the management of the vents of the dissipation system which, if I understand correctly, is partially addressed to the monitor, according to the version with ssd 256gb if this is born partitioned as in 512gb or if it comes out whole. Of course if the owners wanted to refresh the discussion with observations of use in the medium term, including system stability and even the quality of the screen, it would be appreciated. Personally, I like it a lot but I wouldn't want to find a 1400 euro package. Thank you again.

    Dave Lee, I have a question:
    I currently have a Dell XPS 15 and I find the fan noise to be very annoying at times. On simple tasks such as chrome browsing with only 1 or 2 tabs open the fans constantly go on and off which is very annoying. Obviously the fans are loud during demanding tasks such as gaming but I don't want them to turn on after only a few minutes on google chrome. So, my question is, "Is the MSI PS63 quiet while idle or while doing some simple web browsing?" Please let me know @Dave Lee

      @gleeba Still too early to say but it is not excessively hot. I think it was running pretty hot during some updates but in normal usage it has been fine. www.msi.com/Laptop/PS63-MODERN-8RX/Specification Mine is 8RC version with GTX 1050 max Q design. I paid Australian $1990 in Australia, which is US$1369 . It wasn't on discount but was one of a few 15-inch laptops with Win 10 Pro, a fingerprint scanner, a TPM chip that I could source (other specs: i7 8565u, 16gb ram, 512 GB SSD). My other option was an Asus Vivobook S15 for A$1600, but this is a nicer laptop in terms of fit and finish, better display quality, faster SSDs and much better battery life. Other than those, I would be looking at a XPS 15, which would be more $ and personally I prefer the look of this laptop. Here is an indepth review of my laptop with all the temp specs: www.notebookcheck.net/MSI-PS63-Modern-8RC-Core-i7-8565U-GTX-1050-Max-Q-Laptop-Review.403141.0.html

    d appreacte if someone answer me,
    I brought the msi gl63 with i5 8300h
    My cpu usage in bfv is always near 100%
    Causing a bottleneck with the rtx 2060
    So the gpu is using around 50 to 60% with few drops
    The ram is 16gb single channel
    If i add another 16 stick will the cpu usage decrease , is it the game ? Or the cpu
    I'm very disappointed spending 1500 on a laptop that doesnt even uses its full potential ...

    If thunderbolt 3 was supported, this would be a beast. 720p (small screen, remember?) at ultra settings would be better and good enough for fun on the side at work. And when you get home, plug into your external everything. Gpu, monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. Manufacturers are sleeping on thunderbolt 3. I would gladly sacrifice other features for thunderbolt 3.

  • HelloHa

    I bought this laptop and I actually can't believe that the build quality was deemed acceptable. When you hold the closed device in your hand to carry the screen flexes onto the body. The bottom right panel didn't click into place and kept "clicking". The right speaker made the entire chassis or keyboard vibrate causing distortions that drove me insane. The speakers where also very underpowered. The screen brightness was also somewhat underwhelming. I couldn't see this laptop last more then 1-2 years in daily use. (I have a 2012 MacBook pro that lasted me 7 years and is still going). You are much better of spending a couple of hundred more on a Lenovo X1 extreme and get a body that will last you a lifetime. This is what I did when I returned mine! This laptop is completely overpiriced or underengineered. Sure it's light but at what cost.

    Id like to see this a little more specced out, Basically I think the CPU is fine certain games you might end up with a bottleneck, the mobile regular 1050ti or a 1060maxQ or a 1060 MexQ would be nice for that extra power, but I can see what they are going for selling this with a 1050Ti and a U series processor for that price feels a bit off, but if it was around the $1k to $1200 range I can see being perfect for a great all arounder.

    I don't understand how you get so good fps scores in Overwatch. Or rather why I keep falling behind so much. I have Lenovo Legion Y530 with i5-8300H, gtx 1050ti, 8GB ram (single channel) with the 144Hz/300nits screen. Winver 1809 with latest bios updates. -0.140 undervolt and gpu +400Mhz memory overclock.
    I pretty much max out on average 100fps in Overwatch even in low settings. But still get like 70-90fps on ultra preset. But I just can't get this to go to the 144 fps mark.

      ALICE THE BOSS 4 months ago

      Single channel is a problem and u need more than 8gb of ram
