MSI GV62 8RE Laptop Review and Benchmarks

July 30, 2019 posted by

The MSI GV62 8RE is a decent gaming laptop,
featuring Nvidia 1060 graphics and an 8th gen Intel quad core CPU, so let’s check
it out and run some benchmarks to find out how well it performs and help you decide if
it’s worth buying. Let’s start by checking out the specs of
this unit, as there are a few options available with this model. There’s an Intel i5-8300H
CPU here which has 4 cores and can turbo up to 4.0GHz in single core workloads, although
it’s also available with the i7-8750H. I’ve got one 8GB stick of DDR4 memory running at
2,400MHz in single channel, but the two slots can support up to 32GB at 2,666MHz. For storage there’s a 128GB M.2 SATA SSD
installed but the single M.2 slot supports NVMe PCIe storage if you want to upgrade.
There’s also a single 2.5 inch drive bay which is populated with a 1TB 5,400RPM hard
drive. For the graphics there’s an Nvidia 1060 6GB graphics card, although the MSI website
notes that it comes with the 1060 3GB which will perform a little less, so watch out for
that when buying. This powers the 15.6 inch 1080p 60Hz TN panel, but it’s also available
with IPS or 120Hz panels. For the network connectivity there’s a gigabit
ethernet port, support for 802.11ac WiFi, as well as Bluetooth version 5.0. The lid and interior are both a grey plastic
with a sort of brushed finish. They’re both nice and smooth and the lid was a little darker
than the inside. The corners and edges are smooth and basically everything is plastic. The dimensions of the laptop are 38.3cm in
width, 26cm in depth, and 2.9cm in height, so a little on the thicker side but hopefully
that will help with thermals, more on that later. The laptop is listed at 2.2kg on the MSI website,
which is about what I got. With the 180 watt power brick and cable for charging, the total
weight increases to just under 3kg. As mentioned the screen here is a 15.6 inch
60Hz 1080p TN panel, no G-Sync available here though. As a TN panel the viewing angles weren’t
very good, side to side didn’t change too much but up and down resulted in massive colour
shift so you’ll definitely want to look at it front on where possible. The screen
doesn’t get that bright either, at 100% we’re looking at 237 nits. I’ve also measured the current colour gamut
using the Spyder 5 Pro, and my results returned 98% of sRGB, 78% of NTSC and 83% of AdobeRGB,
so it’s actually getting quite good results, the only issues I had was that the contrast
just looks a little low. I’ve performed my usual backlight bleed
test on the display, which involves having the laptop show a black screen in a dark room
to help emphasize any bleeding. I then take a long exposure photo to display any bleed,
so this is a worst case scenario test. No noticeable issues here, it looks different
at the top and bottom but I think that’s just due to the vertical viewing angles being
bad with the TN panel, there wasn’t any noticeable bleed, but this will of course
vary between laptops. While moving the display there was some flex,
but it wasn’t too bad and overall I’d say it felt sturdy. It can’t be opened easily
with one finger, demonstrating that more of the weight seems to be up towards the back,
as we’ll see later when we open it up. Above the display in the center is a 720p
camera. The camera’s not great, really blurry even
with decent lighting. The microphone sounds about average, but you’ll be able to judge
both for yourself. The Steelseries keyboard has red backlighting,
and the sides of all the keys are also clear red plastic so it looks red even while off,
unfortunately the colour can’t be changed, you only get red. Overall the keyboard was pretty good to type
with, there’s some good spacing between the keys with 1.9mm of key travel and I had
no problems to call out. The key presses felt a little clicky, here’s how they sound to
try and give you an idea. There was a little keyboard flex, although
this wasn’t an issue while typing normally, there was quite a bit more flex down in the
wrist rest areas, but again not really an issue during normal use. The touchpad worked well, it uses Synaptics
drivers and was smooth to the touch. There are physically separate left and right click
buttons which were quite clicky, again no issues here. Moving onto the I/O on the left there’s
a kensington lock, gigabit ethernet port, USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A port, HDMI port, Mini
DisplayPort, a second USB 3.1 Type-A port but Gen2 this time, USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C port,
no Thunderbolt support here unfortunately, and 3.5mm headphone and mic jacks. On the right there’s only a USB 2.0 Type-A
port, SD card slot and power input towards the back. On the back there’s just some air exhaust
vents towards the corners, while the front only has some status LEDs in the center. The four 2 watt speakers are found underneath
the laptop towards the front, two on the left and two on the right, and they don’t sound
too great, quite tinny with no bass. Up on the lid there’s a red and white MSI
logo in the center, unlike most other MSI laptops I’ve tested this one doesn’t light
up. Fingerprints show quite easily on the brushed
plastic although as the surfaces are smooth they’re easy enough to wipe away. Underneath there’s heaps of air intake vents
to keep everything cool, as well as some big rubber feet which did a really good job of
preventing the laptop from moving around while in use. The laptop can be opened up easily with a
phillips head screwdriver, and inside we get easy access to the single 2.5” drive bay,
single M.2 slot, two memory slots and WiFi card. Powering the laptop is a 6 cell 41 Watt hour
battery, and with a full charge and just watching YouTube videos with the screen on half brightness,
keyboard lighting on as I couldn’t find a way to disable it and background apps disabled,
I was able to use it for just 1 hour and 12 minutes, so not a great result, and this was
with the Intel integrated graphics in use thanks to Nvidia Optimus. While playing the Witcher 3 with medium settings
and Nvidia’s battery boost set to 30 FPS the battery lasted for 42 minutes, and it
actually stayed at the full frame rate the entire time. The battery was about average
and what I expected in games, but while watching YouTube it drained it way too fast, I’m
not sure why, I ran the test twice and same results, nothing in the background appeared
to be using resources, I’d expect better battery life especially considering I was
able to get 3 hours in this test with the 8RC model which has the same size battery. Thermal testing was completed with an ambient
room temperature of 18 degrees celcius, it’s getting cold here as winter has just started,
so expect warmer temperatures in a warmer environment. It’s also worth noting that
there is a shared heatpipe, so a change in either CPU or GPU may affect the other. At idle both the CPU and GPU were quite warm
at around 50 degrees celsius. While playing PUBG the temperatures rise as shown by the
darker blue bar, but they’re not too bad. After applying a -0.150v undervolt to the
CPU the temperatures actually rose immediately despite the clock speeds not changing as shown
in green. Maxing out the fans in yellow instead of undervolting dropped the temperatures,
and when applying the undervolt in addition to the fans maxed out we got some very nice
temperatures as shown in orange. The full load stress test was tested with
Aida64 and the Heaven benchmark running at the same time. Thermal and power limit throttling
were taking place on the CPU at stock settings and even with the fans maxed out, as shown
in red and purple, but we were able to remove these issues with the CPU undervolt applied
which brought the temperatures under control. Here are the clock speeds from the CPU and
GPU during these same tests. We can see that while gaming we’re getting the full 3.9GHz
all core clock speed of the 8300H regardless of settings, but as we saw in the last graph
we could improve the temperatures quite a lot with undervolting and increasing the fans.
Even in the stress tests we’re only just slightly behind the 3.9GHz speeds in red and
purple, so not only are we able to get full speeds with undervolting this also resulted
in big temperature drops. As for the external temperatures where you’ll
actually be putting your hands, at idle the body of the laptop is sitting in the high
30s in the center. While gaming this increases to the mid 40s with the warmest again in the
center, but it wasn’t too bad to the touch. With the stress tests running we’re getting
into the low 50s, but with the fans maxed out and undervolt applied this cools down
a bit. As for the fan noise produced by the laptop,
I’ll let you have a listen to some of these tests. At idle there was just a little fan noise.
While gaming it wasn’t actually that loud, and it increases a little with the stress
tests running, and we had just a slight decrease in volume with the CPU undervolt applied.
With the fans maxed out it gets a little louder, about average compared to most other laptops
I’ve tested. I’ll also note that I couldn’t hear any coil whine in my unit. Finally let’s take a look at some benchmarks,
we’ll first cover some real world gaming benchmarks followed by tests with various
benchmarking tools. All tests were run at 1080p with the latest Nvidia drivers and Windows
updates to date installed. Fortnite ran well at all setting levels, but
as usual take these results with a grain of salt as this game greatly depends on where
you are in the game and what other players are doing at the time, so results will vary. Overwatch was tested playing with the bots,
and it played very well even at epic settings with the 1% low averages above the refresh
rate of the display, but again results will vary with this game based on the map and what’s
going on in the area. PUBG was tested using the replay feature,
it’s pretty common for the 1% lows to be a fair bit below the averages in this game
but I found it to play pretty well at high or lower, but again like the others results
will vary based on a number of factors. CSGO was getting fairly good results with
the benchmark test, the 1% lows drop heaps due to the smokes in the test but it played
well at all settings. Dota 2 was tested using a fairly intensive
replay, while actually playing you’ll get a much higher frame rate, this was used to
try and represent a worse case scenario and be comparable to others who also test with
the same replay. I’ve tested Far Cry 5 with the built in
benchmark, and we’re just able to average 60 FPS at ultra settings, not bad. Assassin’s Creed origins was another tested
with the built in benchmark, and again the results aren’t too bad. Rainbow Six Siege was also tested with the
built in benchmark, and we’re seeing quite good results here, even at ultra settings
the 1% lows are well above the refresh rate of the panel. Battlefield 1 was tested in the first campaign
mission and it played well even at ultra settings, the 1% lows show the brief dips that happen
at times such as during explosions but this didn’t change much between setting levels. Ghost Recon is a more resource intensive game
and was tested with the built in benchmark, you probably won’t want to try and play
with ultra settings here, but the others should be pretty good. Watchdogs 2 is another resource intensive
game, despite the low looking frame rates I found the game to play pretty well at all
setting levels, as you don’t really need a high frame rate to play it. Rise of the tomb raider was tested with the
built in benchmark, maximum settings were once again able to take us above a 60 FPS
average. The Witcher 3 worked quite well at high settings
or lower, ultra was alright but the 1% lows really show the dips that I was feeling, especially
when the 1% lows at high settings are about what ultra was averating. Now onto the benchmarking tools, I’ve tested
Heaven, Valley, and Superposition from Unigine, as well as Firestrike, Timespy, and VRMark
from 3DMark, just pause the video if you want a detailed look at these results. The results are pretty good, I’ve always
said that the 1060 is an excellent choice for 1080p gaming at 60 FPS with decent settings
and as expected that’s still the case here. As for overclocking, the 8300H CPU can’t
be overclocked, but I was able to increase the GPU core clock of the 1060 by 180MHz,
and these were the clock speeds we got in the Heaven benchmark. I’ve just quickly got some CPU benchmarks
here to compare the last generation 7700HQ with the newer 8300H, as both are quad core
laptop CPUs. The 8300H is only just slightly ahead in single core, with a small boost in
multicore which was improved with the undervolt applied. I’ve started work on the 7700HQ
vs 8300H comparison video so make sure to subscribe for that one. In Crystal Disk Mark the 128GB M.2 SATA SSD
was getting 540MB/s in sequential reads and about 510MB/s in sequential writes, but it’s
worth remembering the laptop does support faster NVMe storage too. The 1TB hard drive
was getting above 70MB/s in both, a bit lower than many other 5,400RPM drives I’ve tested.
I’ve tested the SD slot using a V90 rated card to remove the card as a bottleneck and
the speeds of the slot are quite low, but still useable. MSI mentioned that in Australia this exact
model is exclusive through Harvey Norman, making it just under $2000 AUD. For the rest
of the world I can’t find pricing with these exact specs, but the 8RE with the 3GB 1060
and better 8750H CPU seems to go for around $1200 USD at the time of recording, making
it pretty competitive with the Dell G5 and Acer Helios which have similar specced laptops
in that price point. So what did you guys think of the GV62 8RE
gaming laptop from MSI? As we’ve seen it does pretty well in games, and with the CPU
undervolted should be ready to handle just about anything with decent temperatures. Overall
the build quality was alright, it’s entirely plastic with some flex but seems sturdy enough
unless you’re intentionally pushing it. The only issues I had with it were the somewhat
dim screen and the battery life outside of games. Let me know what you guys thought down in
the comments, and leave a like to let me know if you found the review useful. Thanks for
watching, and don’t forget to subscribe for future tech videos like this one.

    Can you change the colors of the keyboard on this?

  2. Ansh Singh says:

    I have a question. This laptop supports 60hz only and in this video the laptop seems to be running games at higher than 60fps. So can a 60hz laptop run games at like 70-100 fps?

  3. piyush batra says:

    This(i7, 6gb 1060) version or helios 300?

  4. Gaurav Malewar says:

    The Acer Predator Helios 300 in India comes with 1050Ti and 1060 variants(check for the reference, you'll at least know the specs.) 1050Ti will be easy on my pocket during the sales like Black Friday, I'm not sure if MSI would be on a huge offer or not. 1050Ti version of the Helios 300 does get a huge discount. If you convert Indian Rupees to your currency, you'll find laptops in India are highly overpriced (custom duty taxes). So, what laptop should I go for? Check for reference. My budget isn't more than 60k Rupees, but during offers 100k Rupees laptops can be availed even at a price of 50k Rupees. Thank You.

  5. Prashant Sharma says:

    This or the Asus FX 504 GM ( same specs as this MSI laptop)

    fn+num +


    which one is better ?
    i5 8th gen with 1060 or i7 8th gen with 1050ti
    i7 1050ti is 150 usd cheaper than the other!!
    main purpose is gaming and also want some future proofing to play AAA games.
    so which one to buy? is it really worth paying 150 usd extra for 1060??
    needs some expert advice!! Thanks

  15. Piyush says:

    Is asus tuf fx504 with same specification is better than this?

  16. TheRedDaren says:

    Nice review! What was your undervolt offset?

  17. Ali Mizan says:

    I love how deep your analysis of this laptop is.

  18. TheRedDaren says:

    Hello, I just bought the i7 version of this laptop. I am getting 60-70 fps on ultra gtav, is that number ok or something's off?

  19. Mumbai Ganeshotsav says:

    Can you please review Asus FX504GM with GTX 1060 and 120Hz refresh rate or any opinions about it ?

  20. idanew0 says:

    Hi Jarrod . In your opinion this laptop with i5-8300h and gtx 1060 3gb with IPS panel.worth to buy for 950$ or 1150$ with taxes and shipping. For gaming purposes on home.
    I cant get helios 300 Because they dont ship to my country.


    I undervolted my msi gv62 8re to -185mv. Even at -195mv, my pc didnt had any blue screen on stress test(5 minutes) or on benchmark. but on -200mv it crashed.
    on -150mv or -170mv, i am getting thermal throttling.
    So does these numbers look good?

  22. turbograzyna says:

    Hey Jarrod! I'm quite torn between this laptop and the Legion530 with GTX1050Ti and i5-8300. The difference in price is less than 100$. Although Legion looks sturdier and more "cool", I think looking into the future it's smarter to get a laptop with GTX1060. What do you think?

  23. Brajesh Verma says:

    which one is better MSI GL63 8RE or MSI GV62 8RE ?

  24. Surajit Das says:

    hey i'm using intel xtu for sometime now and it works great..but the undervolt setting doesnt save even after I saved it as a profile in the xtu..after the shut down the undervolt resets, though in xtu app it shows the undervolt applied(i'm using cpuid hwmonitor to check)..i've to make it 0volt every time and then set it to my desired volt

  25. DarkChalko says:

    I ordered a Gtx 1060 16gb RAM Msi Gaming Laptop. Can't wait to see the performance!

  26. Surya N says:

    Display Hertz

  27. Kodesii says:

    This or Acer Nitro 5?

  28. Mattypuddingfingers says:

    Will I notice major difference in gameplay and graphics over my Lenovo Y70-70 with a 860m gpu if I buy this? Or should I just buy a xbox one and curved monitor?

  29. gottawatchemall says:

    I got this laptop recently and it's so bloody good, easy -.15mV on the CPU in Throttlestop takes temps down a lot, only thing to do now is get another 8gb RAM to run in dual channel.

  30. Suman Kumar says:

    MSI doesnt have many customer support in India so if you buy it you will have hard time getting proper service.

  31. Nivin Nv says:

    Bro What is the display 1080p ? does it support 120hz display

  32. Don Vessi says:

    cant disable the backlight what?

  34. Ray Lee says:

    So overall it’s good……..

  35. SereniityLove says:

    Wich is better this or dell g5?

  36. Dmstr says:

    I’ve got a question about updating the ram. I have just bought this laptop with the highest specs possible, apart from the ram, so it’s got 1x8gb 2666MHz stick. Now I want to get a second 8gb stick to make it run in the dual channel mode. The question is, does it has to be the same brand and all the details about the card must be the same, like the 8gb stick that is already in? Could you share your thoughts on this with me? It would help me a lot, since i’m not really sure, what would be the best for the laptop, in order to use it’s performance to the fullest.

  37. onlythaking says:

    Just bought the MSI GV62 8RE so happy with it!!

  38. Sar says:

    Hey man, Great review! Without thunderbolt support can it still be charged with a powerbank?

  39. Calvin W says:

    5:37 a little disappointing they had the space for a second M.2 slot but opted not to put a port on this sku.

  40. DEMONOLOGIST says:

    What is that game playing on screen

  41. Ropeythat 204 says:

    I'm looking at a msi GV728re. i7 8750h, 16gb ram, gtx1060 3gb. Anyones thoughts? Only option available to me at the moment!

    Hey Jarrod, amazing review as always.
    Hope that you could make a comparison vid with this laptop against the Asus TUF FX505g laptop since they share almost similar specs.
    Thanks ✌🏾

  68. arjun bandekar says:

    Does it has heating or thermal issues or what is battery backup

  69. Shimanoguy83 says:

    Is it really worth paying attention to amazon reviews on these? A lot of people say they only get a week or 2 out of these before issues pop up, but it seems to go across the board on all gaming laptops on amazon. A lot sound like user error or they are gaming non stop and over heating the unit.

  70. Super Jerick says:

    TN panel lol

  71. FlyDylan says:

    Is it VR supported?

  72. Levin [X_X] says:

    Should I buy a msi Gl 63 or a Acer Nitro 5 ? ( Both are i5 )

  73. ben 10 says:

    very good review i have this laptop. it lags sometime on high resolution in ac odyssey and witcher 3 i think need more than 8gb ram…

  74. Lucky Boy says:

    so can you tell me laptop good for gaming bteween 900-1000 dollars and thanks

  75. Rohan says:

    Please make a comparison video of MSI gv62 8re and predator Helios 300

  76. Rohan says:

    Okay, don't compare the gaming results just compare the other things.

  77. Vedant Tiwari says:

    Can I replace the SSD?

  78. Connor Elite says:

    No idea what half the words you said meant but….. can it run crysis?

  79. Al Michael says:

    699 at microcenter right now

  80. Big says:

    Holy crap it’s 699 at micro center right now

  81. Gretony Garcia says:

    is there 2 variants for the gtx 1060 for this? i saw one on sale but for the 1060 3gb model only.

  82. kanyounus2911 says:

    What about long term gaming , i mean what if i keep it running for 12 hours straight and keep playing games.. does it reduce performance due to high temp?

  83. Jay Tulloch says:

    My camera did not work, my touchpad left click button felt broken and was buggy, and i have had some pretty unusual things happen from getting incredibly low fps in games and speakers not being detected (both plugged in and built in) and my microphone is incredibly terrible quality

  84. Shakib Shohan says:

    No DVD?

  85. Wesley Schulze says:

    I’m looking at buying this but the specs are a little different:

    MSI GV62 8RE-061 15.6"
    Intel Core i5-8300H Processor 2.3GHz; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB GDDR5; 8GB DDR4-2666 RAM; 256GB SSD

    Looks like the one I’m looking at only has 256 ssd. Not an additional 1tb hard drive. Would I be able to add an additional ssd and upgrade to 32gb ram?

    Does anyone know if you can install a bigger storage drive on it, because the 256gb is pretty small

  87. IMuradI says:

    Is this 15 GB DDR4?
    And the place I want to buy it from has only GTX 1060 3GB but its 300$ off on sale from original price.

    You lost the battery on youtube because you still had the main GPU engaged vs switching to the intel integrated…. You are still powering a gaming level GPU to run basic pixel crunching, where as integrated, it takes little to no extra power for the CPU that it isnt already grabbing, and not feeding the GPU or its fan at all. You probably could have gotten 4 or so hours doing that.

  92. NJ Aposaga says:

    Gv 62 8re 3gb version or legion y530 1050ti i5 for gaming and overall performance?

  97. Sachithra Perera says:

    i was actually planning on buying this laptop in a few days, thanks this review was very useful

    Bought the exact model with i7 8th Gen and Gtx1060 6gb varient about 5months ago….after watching this review

    It's been a really great device for me so far with excessive gaming(about 7-8hrs everyday) with max settings!! I get about 50fps more than your model (since 6gb I guess)

    The only issue is the temperature gets a bit high for my comfort and throttles a bit have to try undervolting like you stated!

    Thanks for this precise review and for helping me make an informed investment!!!

  99. Tibas ToBi says:
