MSI GV63 Full Review
In the wake of looking into the Acer Predator Helios 300, I needed to try out one of the new RTX 2060 laptops to perceive how the exhibition thinks about the GTX 1060 in the Helios 300. In this way, I needed to locate the most reasonable RTX 2060 LAPTOP that had specs that were as near the Helios 300’s as could be expected under the circumstances.
That LAPTOP wound up being the MSI GV63 8SE-014.
Note that the MSI GV63 was the most moderate RTX 2060 laptop at the time I acquired it. There are several different alternatives out there with comparative specs now that come in at a lower sticker price.
Like the Acer Predator Helios 300, the MSI GV63 accompanies an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 15.6″ 1080P showcase. There are a few contrasts, however. Obviously, the MSI GV63 accompanies the more current RTX 2060 GPU, though the Predator Helios 300 games a GTX 1060 GPU.
The Acer Predator Helios 300 additionally accompanies quicker memory (2666Mhz) and a higher revive rate (144Hz). Be that as it may, the MSI GV63’s RAM speed (2400MHz) and invigorate rate (120Hz) aren’t excessively distant. Also, the somewhat more slow RAM speed shouldn’t hurt it a lot in benchmarks.
The value distinction is likewise large, as well. The Acer Predator Helios 300 is presently down to under $1,000 and the MSI GV63 comes in at ~$1,450. Things being what they are, the unavoidable issue I need to solicit is, regarding cost to-execution, is the MSI GV63 worth the expense over a LAPTOP with a more established age GPU?

The MSI GV63’s Design and Keyboard
While I planned on contrasting the MSI GV63’s presentation with the Acer Predator Helios 300, I didn’t anticipate contrasting their structures with each other. Be that as it may, taking into account that the two LAPTOPs have a comparative red and dark topic, it’s sort of hard not to look at them.
While both the MSI GV63 and the Acer Predator Helios 300 have comparative structures, the MSI GV63 is somewhat littler and somewhat lighter. The MSI GV63 quantifies in with measurements of 10.2″ x 15.1″ x 1.2″. In this way, the GV63 isn’t exactly as profound and is a piece smaller too, however, it is additionally somewhat thicker than the Helios 300.
The GV63 additionally tips the scales at 4.8-pounds, which is almost a pound not exactly the Helios 300 (5.5-pounds.) So, in case you’re searching for a lightweight gaming laptop, the GV63 is one of the lighter alternatives out there.
The console on the GV63 is structured by SteelSeries. The keys are layer style and are dark with red letters and red trim. The console on the GV63 is likewise somewhat more extensive than the console on the Helios 300. What’s more, the keys are illuminated red.
As far as console-quality, the GV63’s console is presumably as acceptable of a choice as you’ll discover in this value go. There’s truly not a mess you can do with a LAPTOP console, however, the GV63’s keys are pleasant to press and it’s not all that awful composing on them too.
Alongside the real benchmark execution (which you’ll see underneath) the cooling execution is the place the MSI GV63 truly stands apart over the Acer Predator Helios 300. The GV63’s cooling framework comprises of double fans, double depletes, and six copper heat pipes.
Over the six games that I tried the LAPTOP on, the CPU temperature, for the most part, sat in the low-to-mid ’70s, however, I found a good pace upper 80’s in more taxing situations.
When under the burden, the GPU vacillated between the upper-to-bring down the ’70s yet hopped into the mid-’80s on occasion.
Generally, the fans aren’t excessively uproarious. Be that as it may, when the Cool Boost include knocks them up to most extreme fan speed, you’ll certainly hear them. In this way, in case you’re anticipating utilizing this laptop in an open setting, simply be cautioned that the individuals around you will have the option to hear the fans.
MSI’s incorporated Dragon Center programming additionally gives you a considerable amount of alternatives to change fan settings and game designs also. I played with the settings a piece, yet the stock settings appeared to work fine and dandy.
Storage and Battery Life
The MSI GV63 8SE accompanies a 256GB NVME SSD and a 1TB HDD (7200RPM). In the examination, the Acer Predator Helios 300 just accompanied a solitary 256GB NVME SSD. That is truly not a ton of capacity for the Helios 300 and you’ll likely need to add extra stockpiling to it on the off chance that you went that course (which would knock it up to over $1,000).
In this way, the MSI GV63 plainly wins in the capacity division. The one drawback, however, is that in the event that you would like to add more stockpiling or memory to the GV63, you need to remove the whole backboard of the laptop. With the Helios 300, there is two or three brisk access recognizes that will permit you to effortlessly include another 2.5-inch drive or more memory.
At the point when everything is considered, both the GV63 and the Helios 300 perform well indeed. The GV63 will give you a ~10% execution increment over the Helios 300, yet the Helios 300 comes in at almost ~$500 less expensive. The Helios 300 likewise accompanies somewhat quicker RAM (2666MHz versus 2400MHz) and a marginally higher revive rate (144Hz versus 120Hz), however as should be obvious in the benchmarks over, the quicker RAM doesn’t appear to have any kind of effect and the Helios 300 is just hitting a sufficiently high framerate to completely use the 144Hz invigorate rate in non-requesting esports titles.
The GV63 additionally offers more stockpiling out-of-the-crate and has perceptibly better cooling execution. In this way, for me, regardless of the $500 value distinction, I think the MSI GV63 offers a superior incentive than the Helios 300. It’s nearby, however, and on the off chance that you have a progressively restricted spending plan, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is certainly a commendable choice to consider.
The two laptops can run basically any game on in any event medium-to-higher settings with a framerate of in any event 50-60 FPS.
