https://www.costco.com/msi-ge75-r...68605.html - $1149.99

NOTICE: Outrider bundle only for purchases made by Apr 15. The laptop sale lasts until May 2.

Sign of the times. This was $50 cheaper back In Feb (though that was without Outrider). But with most new generation laptops MIA and deals drying up, this is still a good deal.

Unlike most 10th Gen Intel laptops, MSI allows undervolting. I bought one and did the UV and OC and will try to answer any questions you have. UV makes a big difference on the CPU (runs faster at 45W than it did at 55W stock), and you can run it maxed out at 4.3GHz on all cores indefinitely if you have some workloads that need it. I boosted GPU performance >10% as well, using Afterburner. https://www.techpowerup.com/forum...75.279412/

As always from Costco:

90 day free returns.
2 year warranty (4 if you use their card).

Specs here (this is the 008 model): https://us.msi.com/Laptop/GE75-Ra...cification

Some things I like:

1) 17.3" 1080p display, 144Hz, >300nits, 3ms response, high contrast, 100% sRGB.
2) RTX 2060 is 115W, which means it's ~15% faster than 80W 2060s and 1660 Ti, and faster than many 2070 and 3060 laptops that are throttled to a lower wattage.
3) MSI supports UV on Intel CPUs which makes them much more competitive vs Ryzen. With the UV it's faster than a 4600H in Cinebench.
4) It has great speakers for a laptop
5) You can install two NVMe drives as well as a 2.5" drive.
6) Costco warranty and return policy!

Quote from PowerfulClub4936 :
Can someone verify if this actually has high-res audio and "Giant Speakers"
...I ask because I found old reddit posts saying that costco models are "cheapened" sometimes.
Of course that's what they have... it's in the spec.

The cost to illegally "cheapen" laptops just for Costco would far outweigh any potential savings. And since Costco has by far the best return and warranty policy it would be doubly stupid.

Did MSI improve it in their RTX 3060 version
Looks like the same chassis. Their max spec last year was a 10750H and 80W 1660Ti so cooling is probably the same too.

Though the Leopard and Raider chassis have changed, I don't know if it is really an improvement...

Just got mine in today. Not that hard popping the hood. Upgraded the 1tb 5400 ram hard drive for a 2tb ssd. Saw an extra slot for M2 which I probably will upgrade later on with the ram. So far very impressed again just 1 day in but happy with the purchase.

How is the keyboard? Fairly easy to use? The layout seems a bit different / more awkward than others I've used but it's hard to get an idea it's a drawback from just seeing it online.

This same laptop was $1,100 a month ago. Subsequently, Costco had the version with RTX 2070 for $1200 that completely sold out at that price. So MSI and COSTCO figures that $1149 for the laptop in this thread will also sell out.

Reviews on COSTCO are fabulous with a product 4.7 to 4.8 star rating out of 5.
Technically it is still close $1100 price since now it comes with the Outriders game.

Keyboard is good, yes some keys are place awkwardly but not hard to get used to. I love the fact it has a full numeric keypad which is useful for what I'm using it for. Besides that I'm very happy with the purchase, plus I bought it with a Costco visa so I have 2 additional years of warranty for a total of 4 years so can't beat that

Fabulous or not, this is old tec that costs OVER ONE THOUSAND.

Yes there is chip shortage and that is why things are selling for so much money IMHO.

Plus, this is NOT AMD.

At $1,200.00 I expect to get at the bare minimum an RTX3070 (or at the least RTX3060) and a Ryzen 7 4000 series. This is the GUTS of you laptop. I don't see this being a great deal in 2021 OR 2020... maybe in 2019 this was the balls... but guess what, we are in 2021 and AMD now rules.

Yes... and... Confused

Last year the max on 2060, 2070, and 2070 Super were all 115W (firm, no Dynamic Boost). Some 2080s went higher.

That's why paying a lot more for a higher level laptop card gets you such small gains. The gain only comes from FPS/watt. On desktop cards the bigger chips also have more power, more cooling, bigger fans, etc, so the differences in performance are much greater... but laptops don't have the room to deal with it.

So... I have the laptop... anyone able to chime in on how long it took to get the Outriders code by email?

Edit: got mine about 24 hours after delivery (3 days total after purchase). It was sent to the email I listed during checkout, not to the email registered to my Costco account.

Waiting for over a year for the specs for your pricepoint doesn't count! In a tech world, time is money!
