I don't think the price is worth for this product and my main reasons are below: -
  1. This has lowered powered Max-Q version. I have checked the official spec from MSI site but there is no mention of the TGP. So, probably a 60W version with Dynamic Boost for another +15W.
  2. The Display is extremely poor. It is the 144 Hz version of the display with 45% NTSC and poor response time.
  3. Only 8GB Ram at this price
  4. There are far better alternatives at this price point, with 8 Core i7 and full powered RTX 2070 or RTX 2070 Super at a slightly increased price which will outperform this low powered RTX 3060, have better display, battery and thermals.
  5. The Gigabyte A5 series which I have posted here, comes with far superior 100% sRGB 240 Hz Display, Ryzen 7 5800H, 16GB Ram and a MAX0P or high wattage variant of RTX 3060 and costs just $60 more.
  6. The Intel version of Gigabyte G5, available at Newegg at $1099, posted here as well, offers far better spec than this.

Check Gigabyte G5 then. It's in Newegg only.

I got this laptop a few weeks back.
  • It isn't the best deal, but it shipped fast. I have had it for a week.
  • Comes with only 8gb RAM, the ram was moderately easy to upgrade, but it does likely mean you are making warranty discussions a bit tricky in the future.
  • The screen isn't as bad as the specs state. It is a little on the grayer side for all colors vs my VA panel, but I don't hate it.
  • The 3060 runs at 75w constantly, but it is also QUIET. I can't imagine how loud the Max-P versions must be. I had an older laptop that would spin the fans 100% and, I would rather have a downclocked video card than one that sounds like the neighbor hired a yard crew.
  • The Intel chip is fine, I would have preferred to have the Ryzen, but whatev.
  • Mines eth at 37mh/s with core -500 and mem +650.

If it's convenient for you sometime, could you post some frame rates/graphics level if you play games?

The only game I have been playing recently is Valheim and it is well over 80fps at 1440p with most settings maxed.

Damn you!!! (Shakes fist @ freddingo)

Sorry, that's fun sarcasm as I haven't been able to get Valheim to stop lagging, crashing and pretty much every other annoying graphical issue you can think of. Enjoy it though, I hear it's pretty fun...Cheers.

For a last-gen cpu that runs slow, prone to overheating and drains your battery like crazy and with only 8GB of RAM. I guess there is a sucker born every minute. Ryzen 5600H with the 3060 at $1150 will mop the floor vs this.

Costco is selling a similar model (10750H, 16GB ram, 512 SSD + 1TB HD & RTX 2070, 17.3" 1080p) for $1199 starting Mar. 10 - might be worth waiting just to avoid any potential newegg hassles. MSI GE75 Raider Gaming Laptop - 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10750H - GeForce RTX 2070 - 1080p

They are both MSI and have the same CPU, but that's about the end of the similarity. The Raider has a much better display, bigger display, is heavier and thicker, better cooling for gaming (115W), better keyboard, better speakers, and has spots for two M.2 drives as well as a 2.5".

The 2070 115W in the Raider is probably faster than the (80w?) 3060 GF65.

How did you know it would be on sale Mar. 10?

Thanks, didn't realize they were that fundamentally different. Saw this model listed in the costco coupon book here: https://slickdeals.net/share/android_app/t/14864752

Thanks. Ya, the GF series is a more "budget" build. That Raider looks identical to the one I bought recently for $1100, only it has a 2070 instead of a 2060. A 2070 should be good for 10-15% more gaming speed.

EDIT: On the other hand, these guys only saw a 7% difference between the 2070 and 2060. https://www.techspot.com/review/2...rformance/

Jarrod got 14%: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUEhyb-WK_Y
