The MSI GS43VR is one of the latest releases by this Taiwanese brand known for its high-performance motherboards and computers. The device we will review today is definitely one of the best purchases among gaming laptops, especially the VR ones.
MSI GS43VR Phantom Pro-006: Overview
The MSI GS43VR Phantom Pro-006, as pretty much every MSI laptop reviewed on Value Nomad is a powerful machine, built for advanced gaming. It has the latest technology in terms of hardware, including a quad core processor and a fast dedicated GPU.
The i7-6700HQ powering this laptop is probably the most popular high-end quad core processor currently. It has an extremely high benchmark and will help you to play most recent games on very high settings.
A GPU is also very important to assure good FPS and high graphics quality. This laptop has one of the most recent video cards released by NVIDIA, the GeForce GTX 1060 (Notebook). Part of the NVIDIA 10 series, this graphic processing unit is ideal for gamers and working with CGI software.
MSI GS43VR Phantom Pro-006: Pros and Cons
Apart from its high-end combination of CPU and GPU, this laptop also has plenty of RAM. With its 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4 RAM, you will experience a smooth experience on Windows 10, even if you need to do extremely demanding multi-tasking on your laptop
Unlike most gaming laptops that come with a 15 or 17 inch screen, this laptop has a 14 inch Full HD IPS display. Depending on your requirements, this can be a good thing, especially if you move your laptop around quite often. However, if you will use your laptop mostly in one location, I would recommend choosing a 15 or 17 inch device.
As many gaming laptops, this MSI comes with a “hybrid storage“. That means it has both a hard drive disk and a solid state drive. It comes with a 128 GB SSD and a 1 TB HDD, which means you can enjoy the speed of SSD for booting and frequently access software, while having a plenty of storage on its HDD.
